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.
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.
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.
