All these years, I never got around to watching this until today. I should've done it a lot sooner.
I used to see a lot of ads for this Judge Dredd starr. Sylvester Stallone, especially for the video game, in game magazines. After seeing the film today, I gotta say I really liked the cinematography and directing style. It's got a futuristic, Blade Runner-esque setting. Though, I know it was based on a comic book series, I was expecting it to be a lot more bloody and violent as like the original ROBOCOP film. I was also expecting the famous quote shared between the two franchises, "Come quietly, or there will be... trouble!"
I don't know. Maybe the cut I saw was not the entire thing, as if it was censored for TV or something. The music score is very high quality, and reminds me of the Total Recall soundtrack for some reason, but more uplifting, less "weighty". Then of course, I recognized The Cure during the end credits before even getting to the music credits.
Entertaining action flick with some out-dated SFX and a decent plot.
Fantastic film, it never seems to get old...
