If it's crap ... We'll tell you
I've been looking forward to Pete Travis' reboot 'Dredd' for a long time. I still like 1995's 'Judge Dredd,' for all the wrong reasons, but I'm pumped to see a slightly more serious take on the character from Karl Urban, a diehard fan of the comics. The first trailer has finally arrived online and it's...surprising. I like the idea of a drug called Slo-Mo that slows everything down, a reason built into the narrative for a currently popular action movie trope. Yet most surprising is the similarity between 'Dredd's big action set piece and the plot of 'The Raid: Redemption.' Locked in a high-rise full of criminals only to have the villain announce your presence to all the resident scumbags and you have to work your way to the top? I'm not insinuating one stole from the other, it's just surprising to note. All in all, a pretty badass trailer if you ask me. Take a look at it below and tell us what you think.
