I know, a bad pun for the post title to start the day? Well this deserves it. Not a good way to start my morning with this hitting
the web all over the place. Of course I’m going to watch it…it’s what I do and oh boy does this look like a pile. Yes it looks fun, but I’ve seen this before and I don’t need it with updated graphics and Karl Urban playing the exact same Judge Dredd as Sylvester. Come on Urban you’re better than that. Anyhoo here’s your damn synopsis.
Dredd takes place on a fictional Earth created as a result of the Atomic Wars. Survivors of this period are living in Mega-Cities, which protects its citizens from the Cursed Earth, a radioactive desert environment populated by mutants. The main story takes place in Mega-City One, where the police who are now called judges have the power to use police brutality to some extent to fight extreme murders. One man, Judge Dredd (Karl Urban), a senior law enforcement officer, teams up with a cadet called Judge Anderson (Olivia Thirlby) to track down a terrorist organization lead by Ma-Ma (Lena Headey), who is responsible for selling a reality-altering drug called Slo-Mo.
