An arresting central performance isn't enough to save this tale of police corruption

Woody Harrelson gives an astonishing central turn as a corrupt cop in this film set against the corruption scandals that rocked the LA police department in the 1990s. Indeed, it’s such a superb performance that you can’t help but wish it was anchored to a more interesting narrative than the rather predictable character study Rampart is content to serve up. At least the film’s visuals prove rather more arresting, something that shines through courtesy of the BD’s rich AVC 2.40:1 1080p transfer. Extras take the form of a 30-min Making of… documentary and a trio of interviews.
