More Info:
  • Richard Roeper

    Watts achieves a kind of early Coen brothers, early Tarantino feel.

  • Ibad Shah

    The movie doesn't offer much in the way of substantial character development, but that's not a deterrent when the fun twists keep coming.

  • Bilge Ebiri

    Cop Car does enough things so well for so long that to quibble with its finale feels churlish. This is a film very much worth seeing.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • Jordan Hoffman

    Despite the real, bloody stakes, Cop Car keeps a boyish sense of action and adventure through to a twist ending. You have a right to remain thrilled.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Brian Moylan

    The movie culminates in a tense, protracted standoff that keeps the audience on edge for way longer than is comfortable. I mean that as a compliment.

  • Odie Henderson

    The plot description is a good old-fashioned okey-doke, a distraction that lulls you with its absurdity so you’ll be blindsided by the lean, suspenseful and effective movie director Jon Watts delivers. Full Review
  • Mike D'Angelo

    A surprisingly nasty piece of work, more reminiscent of old John Dahl thrillers from the ’90s (Red Rock West, The Last Seduction) than of "Let’s Be Cops."

  • Bill Goodykoontz

    Bacon can play just about anything, and he’s having a good time here as a guy not quite smart enough to keep himself out of trouble, but wily enough to try to dig himself out of it. It’s fun to watch.

  • Manohla Dargis

    It’s an extremely well-lubricated entertainment machine filled with attractive images and wall-to-wall appealing performances.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Peter Debruge

    Watts demonstrates masterful control, pushing right up against the limits of what we can take (even non-parents will be rattled watching the boys mishandling loaded weapons), and yet, at every turn, the screenplay falls short of the picture’s full potential, missing opportunities that could have made this a classic.

    Variety Full Review
  • Marc Savlov

    Director Watts has a background in comedy direction, and a thin, sticky stream of exceptionally dark humor flows through the otherwise gut-churning realism of Cop Car.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Chuck Bowen

    The narrative derives much of its tension from the unsentimental ambivalence Jon Watts displays toward the story's two pre-teen boys.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • Robert Abele

    There's no denying Watts' skill at a certain kind of desolate cat and mouse, but it's in the service of what is ultimately a somewhat heartless exercise.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Alan Scherstuhl

    The film soars early as a fantasy steeped in life and crashes into a drag of a crime drama, one ripped from the movies rather than anyone's idea of small-town Colorado.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Chris Nashawaty

    Cop Car feels like a great short stretched into a mediocre feature.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Gregory Ellwood

    Watts co-wrote the screenplay with Christopher D. Ford (“Robot & Frank”) and, frankly, it’s not as clever or compelling as it wants to be.... The filmmaker does deserve credit, however, for conjuring up some nicely tense cinematic moments.

    Hitfix Full Review
  • Michael O'Sullivan

    The film is full of quiet little truths.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Todd McCarthy

    A potentially fun premise soon turns into no fun at all in Cop Car, a seriously imagination-challenged low-end action thriller.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Kate Erbland

    Watts’ film is comprised of terrible coincidences, bad mustaches and a pervasive sense of desperation. It’s also wholly unable to live up to its obvious promise.

    The Playlist Full Review
  • Kyle Smith

    Cop Car is an instance of what happens when an airy indie filmmaker tries to “do genre” and winds up being as convincing as John Kerry putting down his demitasse and dressing up in hunting gear.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Kate Taylor

    Director Jon Watts is smart enough never to deviate from a narrow vision that he executes superbly.
