CROWN VIC takes us on one memorable night in the life of veteran patrol officer Ray Mandel and his trainee, ambitious rookie cop Nick Holland in LAPD's Olympic Division. With two cop killers on the loose and hunting for more targets, Mandel and Holland must contend with a city about to boil over, as well as Jack VanZandt, an unhinged rogue cop out for payback running wild in their patrol zone. As the night wears on, Mandel finds himself in a desperate race against the clock to find a missing girl as he and Holland prowl the dangerous streets of LA in their police car, protected by only a few thin sheets of metal and glass.Written by
The film's namesake, the Ford Crown Victoria police interceptor (P71/P7B), was discontinued after the 2011 model year after 20 model years of production. As a sedan, it has been replaced in police service by the Dodge Charger and Ford Taurus, and to a lesser degree the Chevrolet Caprice/Impala. Ford has also made a police version of their Explorer SUV that is very popular for police service. See more »
Even with the now exiting-service Ford Crown Vics, the dash cam was always mounted from the windshield header. In the depicted position laying on the dash board in the movie, it would only capture video of the hood. See more »
One thing you gotta remember, man. You're out on patrol, there's the world inside this squad car, then there's everything else outside of it. The only thing keeping you from what's out there is a couple of thin pieces of metal and glass. You gotta respect it. Your equipment too. I mean always respect your equipment.

Well done cop movie which I manage to watch with fingers crossed until the end.
Good actors and apart from few prolonged scenes which don't bring much value it's a summary of most likely underpaid professional work.
