In August 1966, in a Vietnamese rubber plantation called Long Tan, 108 young and inexperienced Australian and New Zealand soldiers are fighting for their lives against 2500 North Vietnamese and Viet Cong soldiers.
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
At 1:20.20 in the film a radio call for a shooting is reported at Hollenbeck and North Kitridge...the same location as the February 28, 1997 Bank of America, North Hollywood Shootout. 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 »
This goes to show that even if with a simple storyline, a long time cop meets with a rookie for his first night patrol, as they encounter the different characters that roam the streets, but with good actors can really lift the movie up, all actors were on point specially Josh Hopkins, you'll know when you see him., that guy must have done drugs while filming, LOL..
Overall, if you're looking for a great movie to unwind after a long day, this is it.
a must watch.
