“End of Watch” is the most intense cop drama to hit wide release in quite some time. Considering its writer/director’s past work, that shouldn’t be surprising. David Ayer wrote the screenplays for “U-571,” “Training Day,” “Dark Blue” and “S.W.A.T.,” among others, and directed “Harsh Times” and “Street Kings,” which was based on a James Ellroy story.
