Storyline

Dave Brown is a Los Angeles police officer who works out of the Rampart Division. Dave is misogynistic, racist, brutally violent, egotistical and a womanizer, although he defends himself against many of these accusations as he says that his hate is equal opportunity. However unlawful, he uses intimidation and brutal force to defend his ideals. The most notorious of his actions is purportedly murdering a suspected serial date rapist, which is why he has been given the nickname "Date Rape Dave". He lives with two of his ex-wives - sisters Barbara and Catherine - in an effort to keep family together, namely his two daughters, Helen and Margaret, who each have a different sister as their mother. Dave still maintains a sexual relationship with both sisters - whenever the mood suits any of them - while he openly has other sexual relationships. His life is put under a microscope after he is caught on video brutally beating a person with who he got into an automobile crash. This situation is ... Written by Huggo

A Magnificent Performance by Woody Harrelson!
9 May 2012 | by (India) – See all my reviews

'Rampart' showcases & salutes the talent of the impeccable Woody Harrelson. As dirty LAPD veteran Dave Brown, Harrelson nails it! In each & every scene, The 2-Time Academy-Award Nominee lives his character & gives him a life to lead. Its A Magnificent Performance!

'Rampart' Synopsis: Set in 1999 Los Angeles, veteran police officer Dave Brown, the last of the renegade cops, works to take care of his family, and struggles for his own survival.

'Rampart' has some terrific moments. James Ellroy & Oren Moverman's Screenplay is brave, brutal & bombastic. The Screenplay never comes across as inhabited. Oren Moverman's Direction, on the other-hand, is ruthless. Cinematography, Editing & Art Design, are excellent.

Harrelson's Magnificent Performance, Alone, is worth giving this film a look. Its a Performance that overshadows the entire film! Harrelson has delivered many remarkable performances in the past, but, in 'Rampart', he delivers his finest. Harrelson is Truly An Acting Giant!

On the whole, 'Rampart' is terrific. Go For It!
