Not Dredd-ful…

Yes, I went there.  Here be terrible puns.

“Which one of you perps said Stallone was better?”

John Wagner, co-creator of Mega-City One’s least socially progressive plod Judge Dredd has seen the new Pete Travis directed film and pronounced it good.  Or not ‘Drokk!’, at least.  Which is nice.

This may go some way towards offsetting some of the bad early buzz about directorial lock-outs from the edit room, behind-the-scenes wrangling, fan worries about early set pictures and that jazz – it would be nice to think that an independently financed production like this could realise this iconic Brit sci-fi anti-hero properly and launch a series of   delightfully dystopian adventures which might get this character some of the attention he deserves.

At least it’s got a year or so head start on the Robocop reboot, which can only be good news for fans of futuristic bad-asses dispensing ironic summary justice.
