Woody Harrelson plays a cop from LAPD, Rampart is where he is stationed,he is known as Date Rape Dave,reason is that rumor has it that he killed a serial rapist.
Officer Dave Brown has his own brand of punishment with people who break the law,Dave has many ways about him that make him a very unpleasant person to know he also has very little regard for correct procedure within his job.
Dave's life takes a massive change when he is hit in the side while out on patrol,the person who smashed into him takes flight so Dave gives chase when he catches him Dave then beats him senseless,the only thing is Dave has no idea that it is being filmed,Dave is then on the downward spiral.
Dave has two wives which are both his x's and they are sisters, they each have a child with him 2 girls,the eldest girl is just always on the move doing her thing like all teenagers,the younger one is trying to see the best in her dad.Dave is one of them guys that just loves women he has many women in this film he also smokes and drinks alot,i was surprised that he could be that nimble on his feet smoking that amount.
Dave is protected by people where he is based not sure why they want to protect him as he is a loose canon and really needs to be towed in but he keeps getting away with it all,it would not happen in real life.Whilst Dave's life is in turmoil and falling apart at the seams he appears as a miss guided fool of a copper he does some very strange things he toys with ending his life then changes his mind.
I really am not impressed with this film but i do like Harrelson that is why i thought i would take a look at this,the character that he plays is dark and devious and really not at all nice,i believe Harrelson could have the pick of scripts and a better film,i believe he does not do himself justice in this film not one bit.
