Dave is misogynistic, racist, brutally violent, egotistical and a womanizer, although he defends himself against many of these accusations as he says that his hate is equal opportunity. However unlawful, he uses intimidation and brutal force to defend his ideals. The most notorious of his actions is purportedly murdering a suspected serial date rapist, which is why he has been given the nickname “Date Rape Dave”. He lives with two of his ex-wives – sisters Barbara and Catherine – in an effort to keep family together, namely his two daughters, Helen and Margaret, who each have a different sister as their mother. Dave still maintains a sexual relationship with both sisters – whenever the mood suits any of them – while he openly has other sexual relationships. His life is put under a microscope after he is caught on video brutally beating a person with who he got into an automobile crash. This situation is made all the more difficult for the police department because of the Rampart scandal. This microscope shows a further potentially scandalous incident involving Dave and a grocery store hold-up. Although he secretly has his defenders within the police department highers-up, Dave, who is unrepentant regarding his actions, has to figure out who he can and cannot trust among his colleagues and new associates as he goes about his business and tries to protect his ideals from being taken away by these scandals.
Plot: Follows veteran police officer Dave Brown, the last of the renegade cops, as he struggles to take care of his family, and fights for his own survival.

Harrelson Good…Wish Movie Were Better.
Always watchable largely thanks to Harrelson–he’s really quite good—but never quite believable film tracks a couple days in the life of a not exactly dirty, but not exactly clean cop. To my mind, Harrelson’s character isn’t exactly dirty–we never witness him taking bribes, or stealing money, or looking the other way–he’s just way overzealous in his pursuit of bad guys–actually scratch that–something happens at the mid-point that actually changes part of that last statement–but he still remains a clean(ish) cop trying to do right by society, even guys he claims to hate–he tries to give a fair shake to. Its that overzealousness that lands him in trouble tho—he beats 2 people in the first ten minutes of the movie–but in both cases i think they were both understandably beatings given the circumstances. Meh whatever, film starts piling things on for Harrelson–having been caught with a cell phone cam beating up the 2nd guy (who was running away from him!) he’s then put on suspension, and then he gets put under investigation which leads to…not a whole lot honestly.
Film is a very shaggy dog story—Not much really happens throughout the movie other then just watching Woody Harrelson walk around and talk tough—he tries to bond with his teenage daughter, he tries to make it right with his ex wives, he tries to figure out what Internal Affairs wants to hear so he can get his job back, and yeah that’s about it really. I feel like the events of the end don’t really add up to much, and the big climactic scene at the ending is well again not much of anything really. Film is basically a 70’s Esq character study of this guy and his life that seems to be arbitrarily falling apart around him. That said, the film’s well shot, its nicely acted and not just by Harrelson, the actress playing his teenage daughter i feel scores just as many points as Woody does in their handful of scenes together. There’s enough here that you wish it was better instead of the mish-mash stew we got going on here. still its worth a look on cable should you stumble on it.
Manditory viewing for anyone dealing with addiction, i.e. everyone
Creepy, vile, and compelling.
It’s horribly dark and almost impossible up watch. Definitely not a date movie. I feel filthy and dirty after being in its presence. Yet forced to confront the degree to which I live only for my own compulsions at the price of those I hold dear.
A very hard work to digest, with, unfortunately, a major let down of an ending. After dragging you though the muck for nearly two hours, you’re left hanging.
Perhaps “Rampart’s” greatest strength is in providing a very accurate example, without being preachy, of what a person’s life will become when he/she shuts out all the people around them and lives only for him/herself and his/her compulsions.
“Rampart” can easily serve as mandatory viewing for anyone dealing with addiction in any one of its multifaceted forms. Perhaps by witnessing such an extreme case as is portrayed in this film, the viewer can see the necessity for redemption. The consequences of not doing so resulting in the spiral into self-destruction that Woody Harrelson’s character experiences in this film.
Wonderfully acted by all involved who elevate this film beyond its own meanderings. Anne Heche’s character has a delicious scene at the end where she just gets to nail Harrelson but good. That must have been a lot of fun for her. And terrific work from the young actress playing Harrelson’s daughter.
A very troubling film but one that deserves major props for originality. I think it took a lot of bravery to make a film like this that is in a way such and anti-film. It’s amazing something as difficult and unrewarding for the viewer as this film is could get made in today’s climate of pandering to focus groups, etc.
Still this film does kind of suck. But it kinda sucks for all the right reasons. It sucks because it’s not “Training Day” or “Bad Lieutenant”. It’s not some thrill-ride, wish-fulfillment fantasy of how much fun it would be to be a bad-ass cop who goes out with a bang in the end. Nor is it a dramatic recreation of real life events to better understand a moment of historical significance. Yet, this film is the real deal. If it weren’t for the striking cinematography, and terrific acting work from recognizable faces you’d swear you were watching a documentary.
I suppose that’s why I’m left hanging at the end. And I suppose I’m alright with that. Kudos!
