DVD & Blu-ray review: Dredd (18) Pete Travis (96mins)
Saturday 12 January 2013
"It's all the deep end," Judge Dredd (Karl Urban) growls to his fetching rookie partner, Cassandra (Olivia Thirlby), about their miserable cop beat.
The future, as is often the case, has gone to hell in the handcart (drug dealers are flung off balconies in broad daylight) in Mega City One and the mismatched duo are charged with scaling a high-rise tower and taking out various poorly characterised dirtbags. This lurid, brutal comic-book adaptation is a far slicker endeavour than Sly Stallone's dredd-ful effort in 1995.
