Rampart Reviews

Creative Loafing

Rampart is more of a character study than any sort of crime procedural, and it's all the better for it.

The performances are uniformly excellent and the film looks great, thanks in no small part to the cinematography of Bobby Bukowski...

Where's it all go? Nowhere, really, just down a dirty, disappointing hole. Harrelson deserved better.

Metro Times (Detroit, MI)

Harrelson is utterly captivating, as the sort of bitter, corrupt L.A. cop you would imagine holding down Rodney King with a smile.

Like the myth of the American West in a related genre, Dave reflects on an ideal past that never really was.

The dark feeling it captures is more important than the details of the hazy plot.

It's a remarkably compelling film.

Shawn Levy

It ... teems with machismo, misogyny, racism and cruelty. And while it manages often to hold all of that awfulness at critical distance, you can sense an embrace as well.

Brown is a sick man, but Harrelson makes him so interesting, so charismatic, so ... watchable, that you can't look away, even if his actions make you want to (and they will).

Andrew Simpson
Fan The Fire

Rampart's eccentricities will offend those committed to a straighter, chillier style, but its stylistic looseness only serves to underline Brown's utter disconnect from reality.

Justin Strout
Orlando Weekly

The same measured calculation that went into casting big actors for small roles to keep the attention on Harrelson goes into many choices throughout Rampart, and though the effect can be frustrating, it feels correct.

Observer [UK]

It confirms Harrelson's position as one of the best, most ambitious, least self-regarding actors at work today, and by the end he's compelled us to understand Brown and accord him a grudging respect.

Rampart is the Shame of police movies.

Harrelson as the Anti-Christ copper doing his very best to unsettle the status quo ... makes a solid impression.

Radio Times

Although it doesn't quite match LA Confidential for complexity and scale, it does capture some of the grit and dynamism of the author's hard-boiled style.

Electric Sheep

The film is shown from Brown's point of view, with Woody Harrelson, dominating every scene and giving the performance of his life, somehow imbuing this violent, bigoted misanthrope with personality, charm and humour.

Jonathan W. Hickman
Daily Film Fix

Rampart is a film more about how scandal affects character and evolving mental state rather than the resolution of such scandal. And even though the movie is a bit formless and meandering, Harrelson's performance is certainly worth seeing.

Harrelson is riveting, and Moverman's gaze is unflinching.
