YMMV: End Of Watch
  • Nightmare Fuel: The scene in which Taylor and Z find the room full of the disected bodies of the cartel's victims is pretty chilling.
    • Z and Taylor come just in time to see Officer Van Hausen with a knife in his eye, and a new recruit with a broken in face thanks to an especially huge criminal.
    • Two two cops respond to a missing children call, and find them bound and gagged with duct tape in a closet inside the house.
    • Not to mention investigating a cartel member's house and finding a room full of undocumented immigrants, some of whom are children, who are being held like animals in a cage. The fact that it's never revealed what the cartel planned to use them for is even more horrifying.
  • Tear Jerker: The last 15 minutes or so of the film: Taylor and Z are gunned down by Big Evil and his gang, and Z doesn't make it. Taylor somehow survives, and at Z's funeral, he doesn't get more than four words into his eulogy before breaking down.
    • In a bizarre case of Mood Whiplash, the last 3-4 minutes is the film's Crowning Moment of Funny; in a flashback to the day of the shooting, Taylor and Z are casually chatting in their squad car, and Z recalls the memory of hiding under his girlfriend's parents' bed as a teenager, and they start making love unaware that he's there.
