Our review:
Parents say (5):
Kids say (3):

While there are better animated features that are pro-environment, POLICE PATROL is an enjoyable computer-animated movie best for younger kids. The shrillness of the characters' voices as well as the simplicity of the story will be a bit much for older kids and parents, to say nothing of those parents who don't subscribe to the views and opinions conveyed in the movie.

Nonetheless, younger kids will enjoy this story of one electric police car's fight against those who seek to privatize and destroy the water supply of a quaint village. For parents concerned about climate change and responsible water management, this movie should inspire edifying discussion with their children about the environmental hazards we face.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
