Yes, I went there. Here be terrible puns.
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.
