Set in 1999 Los Angles, RAMPART is about a dirty cop rushing into a train wreck with reality. The cynical and enraged 24-year LAPD veteran is locked in a whirlwind of events that rip him to his inevitable destination. If this sounds familiar, too familiar, no problem; Woody Harrelson takes us way beyond the familiar cop-gone-nuts with an extraordinary performance, one with an incredible range, from emotional nuances to brutal night-stick assault – from the goon to the sensitive to the raging to the caring.

Sergeant Brown might be a gun-toting moron, but this moron has real brains; although a redneck with the interesting nickname of “Date Rape” – the history on this, however, is quite different than initially thought – he’s respectful, even loving toward women, although this isn’t the whole story; sure, he comes off as a racist, but he’s not. As Sergeant Brown says, “I hate everyone.” (Stewart Nusbaumer)
