Bill C’s review 3.5 out of 5
Cop Car has a very simple premise: two kids are running away from home and stumble upon a hidden, seemingly abandoned police car. They take it for a joy ride. Unfortunately, the cop car belongs to a bad (a very bad) cop, and he wants it back.
This is another movie with a lot of twists and turns that keeps you sitting at the edge of your seat. James Freedson-Jackson and Hays Wellford do a great job as the two kids, and Kevin Bacon is sufficiently menacing as the cop.
This movie is a lean 86 minutes, so the action moves along swiftly, and there’s good usage of black humor to break up the tension.
This film might be hard to find in theaters. For those near an Alamo Drafthouse, you might check for it there.
