  1. Deiner's rating of the film Rampart

    Really disappointing as a whole. There's some questionable aesthetic choices for example. And even though this is supposed to be a character study, I can't help but feel indifferent since the other characters and Brown's personal relationships aren't fully developed to make an huge impact on the viewer. That being said, Harrelson is absolutely great here, and the main reason why I don't go with a lower rating.

    Woody Fucking Harrelson!

  4. Sam's rating of the film Rampart

    Woody Harrelson was spot on. The film had some interesting shots and made good filmic choices but it was slow as a whole.

  5. chloe's rating of the film Rampart

    very lucid and in depth look at a very American social disease. involving exploration of a deeply unlikable and unpleasant character. the film made me interested and seething with anger at the same time. all too accurate portrayal (to my knowledge)

  6. elif jazel's rating of the film Rampart

    without Woody Harrelson it would be a 2/5

  7. Eric Smith's rating of the film Rampart

  8. Thomas's rating of the film Rampart

    Harrelson shines in an otherwise dull film about police corruption.

  9. Tom Cottey's rating of the film Rampart

    Rough, flat and dull, with only Woody's admirable efforts to save it.

  10. dschank's rating of the film Rampart

    occasionally effective, occasionally pretentious character study about an authoritarian cop on his way up shit creek. any movie that breaks the vigilante spell of the cop-renegade genre is fine by me, and the 90's mise-en-scene (complete with ice cube cameo) is a welcome return to a moment when people resented authority. but the glance is also nostalgic - like the film itself, with its scorcese-ish aspirations.

  11. msmichel's rating of the film Rampart

    The script when focused on Woody Harrelson's "Dan Brown" is top notch from crime writer James Ellroy and director Moverman. Unfortunately the characters on the sidelines are mostly cyphers and undeveloped. Though spellbound by the powerhouse performance by Harrelson one can't help but want to know more about the character's family, the investigation/conspiracy? against him and most of the fragile Robin Wright.

  12. rorydean's rating of the film Rampart

    Muddled verisimilitude ignores story, drunk nuance/innuendo undermines otherwise fine portrait of dysfunctionalism. Dir Moverman misses the importance of clear, delineable plot mechanics, tries too hard to match momentum of recent character pics Wrestler, Fighter, Crazy Heart. They understood you must end up somewhere in order for journey to not be about the journey. Watchable, if not memorable ok detour into ruin.

  14. Sunrise's rating of the film Rampart

    In Moverman's portrait of the broken American system of 'order,' he's depicted the worst kind of racial/bigoted/chauvinist reactionism, in which violence is not the worst element -it's the intelligent observation and regurgitation of legal and cultural loopholes that enables self-inflicted blindness. Dave Brown becomes the close-minded American's fear that the country has indeed been surrendered to dirty "diversity."

  15. Addy K.'s rating of the film Rampart

    Oren Moverman's sophomore effort is a stark, sometimes inscrutable record of LA cop Dave Brown's meltdown. Co-written by James Ellroy, the pitch-black irony and socio-political subtext of the story's place and time (Los Angeles, 1999) adds an extra tension to the elliptical structure. Bobby Bukowski's bold cinematography, the edgy editing and sound design also help to transcend the petty label of "an American indie."

  16. Rocky Pajarito's rating of the film Rampart

    Slow, but full of well acted and executed moments of great filmmaking. Woody Harrelson rocks it alongside an interesting cast full of supporting actors (Ben Foster and Ice Cube especially impress.) I really like Oren Moverman's style, which applied aptly here. As a character study, it's a really slow burn that sometimes meanders a bit more than it observes/showcases, but when it works, it works damn well.

  17. JaimeOBWK's rating of the film Rampart

    Maybe is not a four but it's unfair rate like a 3/5.

  18. Christopher Scott Zeidel's rating of the film Rampart

    A great performance by Woody Harrelson.

  19. lewis_longshanks's rating of the film Rampart

    Rampart's noteworthy in only featuring Woody Harrelson, the film itself is a slog. Rampart's use of choppy editing, documentarian-like narrative and obnoxious characters make it difficult to watch more than once. There is a reason Rampart has become lost and forgotten: not because it is an indie production but more due to it not being as bold with it's concept and setting as it suggests. Watch Bad Lieutenant instead.

  20. J. O.'s rating of the film Rampart

    An artful look at the Rampart scandal of the 1990s in Los Angeles. Woody Harrelson does a fantastic job playing the angry, frustrated, alcohol-fueled police officer at the centre of the scandal. The style is split between documentary-like coverage and wide static shots of sun-scorched LA. Echoes of "Bad Lieutenant" aside, this film is meditative and destructive - but, it would have been nice to receive more answers.

  21. Daniella's rating of the film Rampart

    "SHAME" moves from NYC to LA, but instead of an elegant top executive we get a white trash, racist, corrupt cop. AMAZING performance by Harrelson. Unfortunately low budget films like this one go unnoticed.

  22. ΞRIC B∆D TASTΞ's rating of the film Rampart

    "you don't turn into a mongoloid" Harrelson as great corrupt asshole police-officer... but the movie was lame.

  23. Stephen Campbell's rating of the film Rampart

    Harrelson is great but the film as a whole is as boring as Prince of the city instead

  24. Micah Juel's rating of the film Rampart

    Unexpected surprise performance from Woody Harrelson. I enjoyed this one!
