Rating: R Stars: Karl Urban, Olivia Thirlby, Lena Headey, Wood Harris Writer: Alex Garland, based on the JUDGE DREDD comic created by John Wagner and Carlos Esquerra Director: Pete Travis Distributor: Lionsgate Release Date: September 21, 2012 Apart from shared comic book origins, DREDD 3D has nothing to do with the 1995 Sylvester Stallone starrer JUDGE DREDD (or the 1997 and 2003 iterations). This is a good thing, as the new version has a sense of internal coherence that helps us take it seriously on its own terms. Director Pete Travis makes good use of 3D and slow motion to […]Read On »
