First off, the whole movie is shot beautifully. The wide open locations provided a peaceful feeling amidst a gripping thriller of a movie. There is a particular long, continuous shot at the start of the movie that lets you know you're in for a visual treat on top of an original, compelling story. A lot of frames reminded me of No Country For Old Men and that's a major compliment. The way the kids act in this movie is more accurate than most movies depicting 10-year-olds. This feels like the type of movie you and a couple of friends could go out and make on a couple hundred dollar budget, only it's executed to perfection. The performances are all top notch including two of the best child actors I've seen in a while. Plus Kevin Bacon is as likable as ever. Cop Car manages to tell an extremely engrossing story with a cast of only 4 people. I can now sleep in peace knowing the Spider-Man reboot is in capable hands. This film needs way more recognition than what it's getting. Definitely check this one out!
