Kevin Bacon (lead star from recent TV series “The Following)” stars in this new (B Grade feel) thriller “Cop Car”
The basic plot: two teenage boys are walking around a bush talking trash, breaking anything they can find & basically being bored out of their brains (as you would!). Things get very interesting when they stumble across an unattended (and not to mention unlocked) “Cop Car”.
After daring back and forth the two decided to take it for a ride. Things turn for the worse when a strange, shady, sweaty, suspicious police officer (Kevin Bacon) returns only to find that clearly someone has taken his “Cop Car”.
The film does a fantastic job of bringing the “Cop Car” to life and makes it clear that the car was something very unknown and something one should afraid of even just to touch.
Kevin Bacon plays to perfection the suspicious cop and I should also point out the two new young teenage male actors also should be credited.
Certain scenes I discovered do take longer to complete and may annoy some viewers. I personally enjoyed these scenes as it felt more real. For example: watching Kevin Bacon break into a car takes him many tries rather than a corny “oh he got it unlocked 1st go”…
Certain questions are unanswered as the credits roll but overall I was left feeling very content and wanting to see more.
I enjoyed this film so much that I even found myself viewing the Blu-Ray special features (which I don’t normally do!)
