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
The film's namesake, the Ford Crown Victoria police interceptor (P71/P7B), was discontinued after the 2011 model year after 20 model years of production. As a sedan, it has been replaced in police service by the Dodge Charger and Ford Taurus, and to a lesser degree the Chevrolet Caprice/Impala. Ford has also made a police version of their Explorer SUV that is very popular for police service. See more »
At 1:28.20, Mandel switches the police car radio off, and his partner asks why they are going off the grid. Even with the 2-way radio off, a piece of hardware called Telogis reports the location of the police unit in real time to dispatchers. See more »
Thomas Jane was great
Decent LAPD flick. Nothing special but definitely worth a watch. Thomas Jane killed it. Check it out.
