Really, really enjoyed this. I've been a fan of Dredd for 20 years (shit, I'm old!) and after the camp catastrophe of Stallone's version I was wary of this reboot for fear of having my heart broken again. Once bitten, twice shy and all that.
Thankfully this IS Dredd. He's a brutal bastard in a brutal world. While the American comic book heroes tip toe across the screen and wax lyrical about the value of all human life Judge Dredd stomps in to put a bullet through the skull of every lawbreaker without thinking twice.
Some great action scenes, Urban and Thrilby inhabit their roles nicely and for all its dark nihilism the film's still a lot of fun. The first movie in a long while that I'm actually going to see twice in the cinema.
I've written a comic! It's really good - promise! Check it out HERE
