Can anyone explain the ending ????????

Awful. There are two endings shown, neither of which makes sense!! The editing with jump screen cuts is also confusing. Wasn't worth the time I spent viewing!

Extremely boring and pointless movie. You will never get this 1:47 minutes back so don't waste your time.

I guessI'm not a critic! They loved it....I did'nt. Kept waiting for real killer police type action. None! Harrelson is pretty freaky as a police officer, but other than a story about his screwed up life, nothing else happens. Skip it !!

While it provides a watchable, nuanced portrait of man in crisis, it's an insistently one-note affair, repeated until it induces a splitting headache. Full Review

Los Angeles Times
For all of its punishing pathos, the movie does not have the clean lines and elegance of another cut at crime in this city, "L.A. Confidential" (based on an Ellroy novel). As the day of reckoning approaches, the film spins out of control, careening between convoluted subplots, with the emotional pitch of the piece swinging too wildly. Full Review

Though the plot can be vague and occasionally convoluted, Harrelson is mesmerizing. Full Review

The film has its narrative flaws and, occasionally, distracting stylistic flourishes. Harrelson's portrayal of a swinging dick staring down the abyss, however, is perilously close to perfect; it's the finest, most harrowing thing he's ever done. Full Review
Eric Kohn
Rampart is co-written by crime writer James Ellroy as a messy, disorienting noir, and shot by cinematographer Bobby Bukowski with an unsettling degree of realism. Full Review
