Judge Dredd is one of those critic proof hero’s that everyone knows and thinks is kinda awesome. When I saw the Dredd commercial I must admit I did think here we go, re-making another former franchise bla bla bla. But for some reason I found myself enjoying the film, maybe not so much for the story as it’s pretty same old with not much consideration, but more for the filmmaking skills evident.
Judge Dredd is as you’d expect a 95 minute film full of action, action and action with the occasional breath for a dash of exposition and direction in the story. Judge Dredd was a flop at the box office and it’s not hard to see why, maybe it seems people do finally want better stories out of Hollywood.
So if your a fan of Science Fiction or Judge Dredd then it’s definitely worth the watch, but it’s nothing to write home about.
Dredd is released on Blu-Ray and DVD January 8th in the US and January 12th in the UK.
