Judge Dredd (1995)

A movie

Judge Dreddis one of those movies that doesn't have a brain of its own, so it can only rip off a lot of ingredients from other, better movies. It's a mishmash ofBlade Runner,Total Recall, andThe Road Warrior, with a dash ofStar Warstossed in for good … see full wiki

"Judge Wopner" Is More Entertaining

Hungry for another film franchise (ROCKY was too old to box, and RAMBO had already killed off all possible enemies), Sylvester Stallone was hungry for a new cinema hero to portray. Science fiction films had always been popular, so Stallone threw his hat into the ring with JUDGE DREDD.

It should've been called JUDGE DEAD-ON-ARRIVAL.

Stallone hits both of his notes here: quiet merciful slaughter and screaming merciless slaughter. The story of a future city where all crime result in incarceration was mildly visionary, but, when the surprise twist of having the law turn on one of the most revered judges (insert "Stallone"), it became all too predictable. While the special effects are top notch, the film is best viewed once.

Just once.

The stunningly beautiful Diane Lane is wasted here in the role of one of Dredd's streetwise Judges. Armand Assante chews scenery as ... well, let's just call him a close personal friend of Dredd's. And ... what was the venerable Max Von Sydow thinking when he agreed to star as Dredd's mentor?

The film was based on a popular comic series of the same name.
