Dredd ReviewDredd Review by Kurvos
After the failed attempt in 1995 to adapt the Judge Dredd comics into a live action movie starring Sylvester Stallone only resulting in it being a dumb guilty pleasure at best, there was a big chance that would kill chances for a faithful adaptation to ever be produced.
