Judge Dredd has passed his judgement upon myself. He has judged that I am a colossal hypocrite. I complain and whinge constantly about the watering down of cinema to appeal to a wider audience, I bemoan the safe and sanitised studio system yet when Dredd 3D had its theatrical run, I was nowhere to be found. It appears others had a similar idea. The 18 or R rated Dredd 3D didn’t set the box office alight despite numerous favourable reviews. Here is my apology for not laying my £9 down in the form of these few hundred words.
Dredd 3D is great fucking entertainment. There, now that’s out of the way I can get along and tell you all why you should give Dredd a chance in your own homes in an attempt to give this pure piece of violent action cinema the attention it deserves.
