Dredd review

Film description

Total Film saw Dredd at Comic Con 2012! Read our reaction here.

In a new adaptation of the 2000AD comic-book series, Karl Urban stars as the helmet-wearing lawman, Judge Dredd. Olivia Thirlby is his rookie sidekick Cassandra Anderson, and together they attempt to bring down drug pusher Ma-Ma (Lena Headey).

With scriptwriter and prodcuer Alex Garland (28 Days Later,) and lead actor Karl Urban (Star Trek) being self confessed Judge Dredd fantatics, Dredd promises to be a more faithful adapatation of the cult classic British comic than the much maligned Sylvester Stallone attempt of the 80s. And rest assured, we've been promised that Judge Dredd will not remove his helmet. (something that has not happened in some 35 years of comic book history) 

Dredd made a favorable impression at Comic Con, but will that lead to box office succeess? Will Alex Garland hinting that a $50 million North American box office could see a sequel, do you think this could just be the beginning of 2000AD on screen again? Are you excited to see Dredd? Whet your appetitie with by watching the official trailer again and leave your comments below ahead of the film's 7 September 2012 release.
