The buzz is that Woody Harrelson gives an Oscar-worthy performance in this film, and based on the trailer, I’m pretty intrigued. In “Rampart“, Harrelson stars as as a Vietnam vet and a Rampart Precinct cop in the year 1999, dedicated to doing “the people’s dirty work” and asserting his own code of justice. The problem is that the lines between right and wrong are often blurred for him, which inevitably gets him into huge trouble.
When he gets caught on tape beating a suspect, his professional and personal life heads into a downward spiral. All of his past mistakes come to a head, also involving the mistakes made with his two ex-wives (who are sisters, by the way) and kids. Besides Harrelson, the film has some big Hollywood stars in it that include: Ice Cube, Anne Heche, Sigourney Weaver, Cynthia Nixon, Robin Wright, Brie Larson, and more.
