Corruption has been done so many times on screen that Rampart feels more like a footnote than a worthy addition to the genre. Woody Harrelson does his part at bringing a conflicted cop to the screen - but this is no Bad Lieutenant - though if you're itching for a dirty cop drama, it will do the trick. It's one of those movies, though, that just doesn't leave much of an impression on you, try as it might.

Harrelson does give a worthy tortured performance, but the movie itself lacks any focus or point to the story. Sometimes entertaining and at other times frustrating.

Rampart review

Woody Harrelson definitely owns it (really brought his A game here), but overall it was a descent film. Officer Dave Brown (Harrelson) has two ex-wives that are sisters (Anne Heche and Cynthia Nixon). He ignores his family, womanizes, corrupt and a racist. Consists of brilliant acting from Harrelson, spectacular camera direction and a wonderful screenplay. Best quote that almost sums up the movie: Hart – “The rules change. Laws change. People change…but not you.” The blemishes this critic had were the unutilized strength of the cast, length for its simple plot and a disappointing finale despite investing on the flawed figure. Rampart depiction of a person who never changes that affect his life was well exhibited but could have been better in certain aspects

Evil in Blue

Rampart is a character driven film that shows just how rotten a human being can be. Woody Harrelson plays Dave Brown, a despicable, corrupt, racist, misogynistic, and homophobic LAPD patrolman. Brown is one of those truly evil human beings who abuses his position of authority for personal gain. Furthermore, Brown seems to relish dealing out pain and suffering, as he is willing to use violence and lethal force at any provocation. Dave Brown is the classic "the ends justify the means" type of individual, willing to throw away the book for results. Harrelson is simply superb in the role and elevates the movie above its subject material.

The cop who uses unethical methods is nothing new. The television series The Shield (which I am a big fan of) was based partially on the Rampart s...
