It's a hard sell to Fat Yanks when they probably have little or no experience of the source material.

It's Limey comics, basically. I hardly used to read 'em myself... always read Spider-Man instead.

I'd heard that about Dredd, that it was similar in "plot".

Judge Dredd? How can you even walk up to the ticket booth and ask for those tickets with a straight face?

"Can I have two tickets to Judge Dredd 3-D please"

lol

I saw this movie tonight and was very impressed by it. I'm not a major action movie fan, and the plot was incredibly similar to The Raid (almost like the guy had sat in front of The Raid with his notepad) but it was good.

I see it's a co-production between the UK and South Africa of all things. However, it's set in a future Fat Yankland, and all concerned put on Fat Yank accents. (Don't knock it... you all watched the Dark Knight movies, right?)

I genuinely believe that if ten people reading this crap went to see this movie, then at least 6-7 of them would believe that it was a film worth seeing.

If you're an American, then here's just some of the things this film gives you:

* American accents.
* People shooting guns
* Lots of violence
* Some shots of fat people.


If that hasn't made you book your tickets, I don't know what will.

I'll admit the reason I haven't gone to see this is because of the original.. maybe i'll check it out now. could become a cult classic.

there are movies like end of watch though that are taking the luster out of seeing this one.
it got released at the wrong time.

This is the HUGE problem that film has. Everyone remembers that Stallone piece of crap.

I'm a big Stallone fan, I think he's underrated as an actor when he allows himself to actually act (Cop Land, for example, sharing the screen with Keitel and ISTR DeNiro without disgracing himself). However, Judge Dredd has to be one of the three worst movies he ever did, an utter piece of crap.

Judge Dredd was actually a character from independent Limey comics, created in 1977, that's the source text. This film is NOTHING like that Stallone debacle, it's INCREDIBLY violent, and utterly different in tone. They're like night and day. I'll give this film 7/10... I gave that 90s version 3/10.

... I was just checking it out on IMDb.

It's got the guy who played Avon Barksdale in The Wire in it. I thought it was him, but I didn't want to feel prejudiced in case it wasn't.
