Buzz

“Watts expertly builds the tension in the story, cutting back and forth between the escalating escapades of the boys and the downhill slide of the sheriff.” – IGN Movies

“… Cop Car is a serious joy to watch. Watts has put together a real triumph of nostalgia. It’s a cult classic that doesn’t just feel like it is trying to be one. But past all that, Cop Car is just a damn awesome movie.” – Twitch Film

“A lean, mean bit of B-movie fun that satisfies the youthful urge to act out — and then some — while putting its child characters in unconscionable danger.” – Variety

“Cop Car blatantly shouts out its influences, from the 80’s action plot to the shots of the empty highways reminiscent of 70’s cinema. The kids could have been transplants from the Amblin Entertainment universe, though they are far more mischievous (and more potty-mouthed) than Spielberg’s company would have allowed. And Bacon’s sinister cop has elements of everything from shady, corrupted noir figures to the casual, folksy friendliness of Andy Griffith’s Sheriff Taylor of Mayberry.”  – RogerEbert.com
