I kinda wish I’d seen it in the theaters. You can see where the 3D was supposed to be used and I bet it would have been awesome.
Anyway, it’s a nice bit of the old ultraviolence, for my fellow droogs.
Karl Urban, who, of course, co-stars in Almost Human, which I now watch religiously, stars as the titular Judge Dredd. The violence and action is pretty non-stop and more than a little bloody and brutal. A well done actioner, all in all. And no massive, world spanning plot to justify. In fact, it’s more of just a day in the life in a pretty nastily crime ridden dystopian future.
The comic is British and I wonder if there isn’t something particularly British about a certain kind of authoritarian dystopia with an iffy justice system that’s notably lacking in traditional due process. You think of Judge Dredd, V for Vendetta, and, of course, the granddaddy, 1984.
So anyway. It’s on Netflix streaming.
