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
Despite its West Hollywood vibe, Crown Vic was in fact filmed in Buffalo, New York. See more »
Our protagonists call sign is 20-L-14. A basic patrol car with an "Lincoln" designation is a one-officer car. The correct call sign should be 20-A-14. An Adam designation is a two-officer car. See more »
Well done Souza!
Souza has crafted a close quarters cop story with heart. It's gritty and violent. The characters have soul and the plot clips along at a brisk pace. You know how some films take forever to get going? Not this flick. From the opening scene your placed in a high octane gunfight. Enjoy the ride.
