Film: Rampart (2011)


Woody Harrelson is superb in Rampart but the film is not at all likable and nor is Harrelson's character, Dave Brown. Brown knows nothing but corrupt practice and a corrupt way of life, and when he ends up going a step too far he has no choice but to dig himself deeper into a hole of misery because here is a man who cannot exit a mode of existence that defines him.

What we have here is the story of a bad man who knows he gone too far one time too many. It's a tough watch.
