We’re heading into Oscar season, which means cinema, for the most part, is going to be Very Serious over the next few months. But if you need a break, and want to fry your brain with something fun, fast and thrilling, well we’ve got a few copies of “Cop Car” for some lucky readers to throw into their Blu-ray player.
Jon Watts, who will be directing the next Spider-Man movie for Marvel, helms this gritty little picture starring Kevin Bacon, James Freedson-Jackson, Hays Wellford, Shea Wigham, and Camryn Manheim about a pair of 10-year-olds who find an abandoned cop car in a field and take it for a dangerous joyride. Things only get worse from there when the small-town sheriff goes looking for his missing car—together with the illicit cargo he left in the trunk—and the kids find themselves at the center of a deadly game of cat and mouse they don’t understand. The only way out is to go as fast as their cop car can take them.
