Dredd

 

 

This is a remake or reimagining (which is the buzz word that’s all the craze in Hollywood) of the Sly Stallone and Rob Schneider flick from 1995. They both share a common story; Dystopian future where the po-po act as judge, jury and executioner. Both movies are based off the British sci-fi anthology ‘2000 AD’ which made its debut in 1977 and was written by John Wagner and Carlos Ezquerra with help from Pat Mills.

 

While the Sly version adopts a comic book style the new Karl Urban adaptation has a much grittier, realistic graphic novel thing going on. It has potential so we will have to see if it can out play the original.

 

 

 

 

Here is a look at the original Sylvester Stallone version.
