IoS DVD review: Dredd
Sunday 13 January 2013
I'd tell you to forget Sylvester Stallone's overblown Judge Dredd movie, but you probably already have.
This reboot, scripted by Alex (The Beach) Garland, puts British comics' much-loved anti-hero – a fascistic 22nd-century lawman – into a tough, stripped-down action movie with just the right amount of deadpan comedy. One criticism: Karl Urban doesn't have the chin for the role. Where were Michael Shannon and Josh Brolin?
