Storyline

A pair of ten-year-olds find an abandoned cop car in a field. When they take it for a joyride, it seems like they could kill themselves at any moment. But things only get worse when the small town sheriff goes looking for his missing car. The kids find themselves in the center of a deadly game of cat and mouse they don't understand and the only way out is to go as fast as their cop car can take them.

Should be getting more attention

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!
