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.

Did You Know?


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 »


At 1:28.20, Mandel switches the police car radio off, and his partner asks why they are going off the grid. Even with the 2-way radio off, a piece of hardware called Telogis reports the location of the police unit in real time to dispatchers. See more »


Ray Mandel: 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.

Do NOT pay any attention to low reviews!

Good acting, solid writing, excellent editing. It felt like an entire TV-show season fast forwarded into a bit under 2 hours.

If you're into realistic police films/shows, you will very much enjoy this movie.
