Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that Cop Car is a low-budget thriller starring Kevin Bacon that has some interesting ideas. It also has quite a bit of bloody violence, much involving kids -- they handle guns and threatened and in danger, and one is shot in the stomach. A shootout involving adults includes blood spurts, bloody wounds, and killing. Language is also strong, with kids saying at least half of the salty stuff; "s--t" is at the forefront, with "f--k" not far behind. An adult character is shown flushing a big bag of cocaine down his toilet and snorting a handful; he also drinks a beer and smokes a cigarette. But sex and consumerism aren't issues, and older teens with strong stomachs may enjoy discovering this stylish gem.
A bloody shootout with blood sprays and dead bodies. A boy is shot in the stomach. A character is covered in blood. Kids are threatened and in danger. Kids handle guns.
"F--k" and "s--t" are used several times. Two young boys practice their swear words: "f--k," "s--t," "s--thead," "bitch," "p---y," "boobs," "wiener," "damn," "goddamn," "ass," "a--hole," "assface," "crap."
The main messages are simple (and cautionary): Don't run away from home, don't take what doesn't belong to you, and don't leave your keys in your car.
