Big action, big explosions, garish skin tight costumes and laughable (but bad) one liners. As far as being faithful to the comic, it fails big time as its more of a Stallone movie than a true Dredd movie but if you're in the right mood its also entertaining as hell.Stallone IS the law here as Judge Dredd a futuristic cop from Mega city who holds unilateral power as judge, jury and executioner over overpopulated and violent cities. When he is framed for murder and banished from the force (and the city) he must fight his way back to reclaim his badge and take down Armand Assante -who is pretty awesome as the bad guy. This movie is generally hated but I had a ton of fun watching it (except for Rob Schneider as the "comic" sidekick -he was terrible) The story is decent though and there are a ton of interesting characters (and actors) involved (Diane Lane, Max von Sydow, Scott Wilson). I also liked this future view, yeah its kinda Bladerunner-ish but interesting with cool gadgets, giant robots, flying motorcycle chases, redneck cannibals and a ton of unintentional laughs to be had along the way. 12/1/14
Vincent D (gb) wrote: As much as I want to really like this film, especially because thoughtful slow-paced science fiction films are quite uncommon, this one just comes off as far too simplistic, and at times asks me to believe the ludicrous.There's a bleak message with deciding to dismantle a project in the most violent way, a project that could be the largest conservation project for an Earth with very little to practically no more wildlife on its surface. Everything people eat is now "synthetic", though I have to wonder if that means they're lab-grown, as workers even disdain the very idea of farming ("From the dirt?")The overall message of us destroying nature and shrugging our shoulders as we replace everything we can with synthetics isn't lost on me, though it's heavy-handed to extremes in this film. Sometimes the way we do things has to be taken to extremes for us to see how ludicrous it is, other times it oversimplifies to the point where the message is ultimately lost, and this feels more the latter.The one bit from the film that really does strike a chord, however, is when one of Lowell's coworkers says, "If anyone really cared, something would have been done a long time ago." You could have stopped the film there and gotten the one message from the whole thing. But then the film goes on with Lowell sabotaging the crew and trying to rescue the forest-dome he takes care of, which goes from a sad "we should have cared" to "terrorist actions to protect the environment", which makes the message a bit more distasteful, as even many animal-lovers want to avoid PETA tactics.(Spoilers ahead)As an example of the ludicrous, we're expected to believe that Lowell, the one that cared for the domed nature habitats for 8 years, and felt he was most capable of being promoted to a director over the whole project, had trouble figuring out trees needed light for photosynthesis? Even I know that, and I don't have hands-on work with plant-life on a daily basis.The one worker that invested so much of his life in the project was obviously devastated by the decision to blow the domes, and one of the coworkers tries to give him a high five. It's like none of them were paying attention to him during their 6 month shift, which is rather odd, as the film establishes they'd been arguing over the value of natural foods and wildlife many many times. Furthermore, in their rather sensitive mission of handling small nuclear bombs, they don't know where Lowell is, but decide to just shrug and carry on as if nothing could go wrong with the guy who was obviously demoralized and massively unhappy with the decision to destroy the last vestiges of nature.It also leads me to wonder how these people were assigned to this job? Lowell's the only one of his crew of four that really cares (and he REALLY cares), everyone else just wants to go home. There are no other conservationists at all that believe strongly enough to try to get that job? Perhaps another bit of social commentary about how much even the conservationists "truly" care, but I have a hard time with that. After all, enough cared to make this movie.Perhaps I'm trying to read too much into the message. Still, there's not really much here besides the message.Still, it would be nice to see more science films with messages, I'd just rather they tell those messages in better ways, with a bit more depth.
