October 13, 2020
This is mediocre, mostly forgettable drama, but it leaves a nasty taste.
September 3, 2020
A tense and gritty crime drama which pulls no punches.

If the Oscar-caliber Training Day is like filet mignon, then Crown Vic is like a McDonald's hamburger.
November 19, 2019
My problem with this movie... is that it wants us to empathize with Thomas Jane's character. But the thing is, his character's just a crooked cop.
November 16, 2019
Writer-director Joel Souza's "Crown Vic" doesn't always balance those elements ideally, but it's still a respectable if non-revelatory cruise through a familiar terrain of mean streets and men in blue.
November 15, 2019
Souza and his cast explore a familiar milieu, and though they fall short of saying anything startlingly insightful about it, they do a fine job of making it feel real, and even vital.
November 14, 2019
A police thriller with few police and fewer thrills, Crown Vic nevertheless offers a few rewards for the patient viewer, though these come wrapped in a derivative package.
November 14, 2019
Written and directed by Joel Souza, this gritty, compressed exercise in nocturnal suspense demonstrates both the power and vulnerability of the men in blue.
November 14, 2019
An old-fashioned cop drama with echoes of David Ayer's End of Watch, Crown Vic doesn't break any molds, but allows Thomas Jane yet another part that reminds one how grounded and resonant he can be in the right material.
November 14, 2019
Crown Vic has strong performances and some topical observations of modern day police work, but it never goes anywhere interesting enough with them.
November 12, 2019
A good film that unfortunately doesn't stand out from the crop. The performances by Thomas Jane and Luke Kleintank are solid and there are a few moments of real inspiration.
November 11, 2019
The rest of Crown Vic, written and directed by Joel Souza, will keep you glued to your watch more than the screen while you remember how much better Training Day was.
November 9, 2019
The four-wheeled title character is more intriguing than its human counterparts in this gimmicky thriller.
November 8, 2019
Has very little to offer the discriminating moviegoer.
November 8, 2019
Crown Vic offers no ... sweeping sentiments, because it's too busy picking apart the mucky, gray morality of two men...
November 7, 2019
A verbose, hackneyed thriller about a night in the lives of a veteran patrol officer and his trainee.
November 6, 2019
"Crown Vic" doesn't sustain a level of suspense and grim analysis throughout the entire endeavor, keeping the picture uneven, but still connecting with undeniable moments of clarity.
November 6, 2019
Not a bad picture. It's just too unexceptional to stand out.
November 4, 2019
Overall, it's a very nicely made film, but its familiarity is likely to limit its audience potential and mean that [Joel] Souza's talent won't get the recognition it deserves.
October 11, 2019
The result isn't perfect, but there's enough to peek inside this complex argument surrounding the police with nuanced emotion.
