Judge Dredd

Judge Dredd is a 1995 Sylvester Stallone science fiction film based on the comic strip character. I had forgotten having seen this until they got out into the wasteland, and then it all came back to me. It bears no resemblance to Judge Dredd the character, but it's a fun enough time waster. And now I've seen it twice!


Moria says, "Despite the wealth of imagination that exists in the source material, the film has taken a tedious route that seems afraid to have gone anywhere imaginative. It ended up being a big financial flop." DVD Talk says, "I suppose it's never really a good thing when your biggest compliment for a film is that it's over fast, but that's the case here." Roger Ebert says, ""Judge Dredd" never slows down enough to make much sense; it's a "Blade Runner" for audiences with Attention Deficit Disorder." The Rotten Tomatoes critics score is 18%. Honestly, sometimes I wonder if some of these critics got into the wrong line at the theater and were expecting Citizen Kane instead.
