A genre-bending, 1990s Los Angeles police family drama, "Rampart" explores the dark soul and romantic misadventures of a never-changing LAPD cop (Woody Harrelson) whose past is finally catching up with him in the wake of a department-wide corruption scandal. Along the way, he is forced to confront his disgruntled daughters (Brie Larson, Sammy Boyarsky), his two ex-wives (Anne Heche, Cynthia Nixon), a tenacious Deputy DA (Sigourney Weaver), an investigator on his trail (Ice Cube), a homeless witness to his crimes (Ben Foster), his aging mentor (Ned Beatty) and a mysterious new lover who may or may not be on his side (Robin Wright), as he fights for his own sanity and survival.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..its relentless downward spiral makes for an overdetermined, not entirely satisfying character study with modest niche-release prospects..”
by Justin Chang [Variety]
“..the film spins out of control, careening between convoluted subplots, with the emotional pitch of the piece swinging too wildly..”
by Betsy Sharkey [Los Angeles Times]
“..as the movie drags on, though, it takes on a throbbing, sick monotone..”
by Kyle Smith [New York Post]
