Dredd is the 2012 violent futuristic movie based on the violent futuristic comic strip running in the British science fiction anthology 2000 AD. The dystopian Judge Dredd feature was created by John Wagner and Carlos Ezquerra using a heavy dose of satire to poke at state-sponsored authoritarianism. The comics fall into the ‘Grim Meathook Future’ vision of mankind’s tomorrows where mankind has peaked and is devolving into something else. Judges are the only instrument of the law, being empowered to instantly convict, sentence and execute offenders.
Dredd is an awesome little B-movie with a large budget and it’s fun for at least three reasons.
