A powerful portrait of a seriously damaged, both internally and externally, man.

September 14, 2012
IN case you needed it, this unsettling cop drama is further proof that Woody Harrelson is one of the most underrated actors going round.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
September 4, 2012
A film saddled with a melodramatic script that would serve better as a TV pilot.
Full Review | Original Score: C+
August 25, 2012
No thrills, no secret plots, and no obvious politics, "Rampart" is a powerful and moving look into an empty person.
Full Review | Original Score: 8/10
August 5, 2012
This movie feels too undecided. The movie is so intent on not being "Training Day" that it just isn't "Training Day" enough.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4

Woody Harrelson is mesmerising as the anti-hero of gripping crime drama Rampart, but his pill-popping, booze-swigging, suspect-beating dirty cop, is so irredeemably unsympathetic that you almost wish he weren't so compelling to watch.
June 3, 2012
Ultimately Rampart is Harrelson's showcase, and he takes full advantage of fleshing out a complex role.

When Steve Buscemi is playing a district attorney, you know you're in a moral quagmire.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/4
April 26, 2012
Rampart is a hypnotic, subjective, immersive experience into the deepest depths of a character that you love to hate. It's powerfully ambiguous filmmaking; and you need to see it.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/5

The incendiary dialogue -- as much a performer's showcase as is a jazz instrumentalist's solo -- is signature Ellroy.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
March 29, 2012
A nightmarish, hallucinatory film, bathed in raw neon colors and with style to spare, and with a blistering central performance by Woody Harrleson.
Full Review | Original Score: 4.5/5
March 16, 2012
Harrelson is riveting as a man without redeeming qualities or hope of redemption being driven to madness by personal demons.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
March 12, 2012
Harrelson scorches the earth.
March 9, 2012
Rampart is more of a character study than any sort of crime procedural, and it's all the better for it.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
March 9, 2012
The performances are uniformly excellent and the film looks great, thanks in no small part to the cinematography of Bobby Bukowski...
Full Review | Original Score: 6/10
March 7, 2012
Harrelson is utterly captivating, as the sort of bitter, corrupt L.A. cop you would imagine holding down Rodney King with a smile.
Full Review | Original Score: B
March 5, 2012
Like the myth of the American West in a related genre, Dave reflects on an ideal past that never really was.
Full Review | Original Score: 7/10
March 2, 2012
The dark feeling it captures is more important than the details of the hazy plot.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
March 2, 2012
A movie with a literary heartbeat.
March 1, 2012
It's a remarkably compelling film.
