This film just wasted 90 minutes of my life! I want to know how it got a 7.2 IMDb rating and 77% from Rotten Tomatoes, I just kept seeing faults with it and the story line didn’t fit the character as well as I thought it could…
My first problem was with Judge Dredd’s (Karl Urban) voice, one minute you can tell he is putting on a horribly fake voice then the next minute it is a normal voice, I also didn’t like the fact he was faking a frown majority of the way through the film, I mean who in their right mind stands there frowning 24/7? No one that is who!
Then when they introduced Anderson (Olivia Thirlby) to Judge Dredd, first thing I noticed was her ridiculous brown eyebrows, thick and bushy, sticking out supposing she had a blonde wig, the costume department must not of cared! If you are going to make her wear a wig at least dye her eyebrows or trim them down so they don’t stand out like that!
The other bit I have to rant about is the blood, now I know it is fake blood but during the shooting scenes could the blood look any faker? It seemed so watered down.
The story line, now I didn’t want to talk about this but it is so bad supposing it is meant to be set in the future you think they could play on that a bit more and make it into something else instead of a drug bust, “oh wow you found a drug that slows down time, good for you”
There is one scene (again I didn’t like) that tends to happen in all films with guns, the bad guys are shooting at the good guy and miss every single shot, now in this film I thought it would be different supposing they are using 3 heavy machine guns, you know the ones you have to let spin a bit first, aiming straight at the judge who has no protection rather than just running, but no every shot misses him and instead hits the civilians running around.
Sorry for the negative review but I really disliked this film and don’t particularly want to see a sequel…
