"'Auntie Mel', you have been charged with the manufacture and distribution of the prohibited sugary snack known as Pixy Stix . The sentence is 6 months Iso-Cubes. How do you plead?"
Melanie belongs to
... "but in case you people have forgotten, this block operates under the same rules as the rest of the city. Melanie is not the law... I am the law."
If you've not watched Dredd (2012)
, you really ought to. It didn't do so well in the box office for various reasons (1. admittedly terrible trailer, 2. detractors of the Stallone movie thought this one would be just as bad - a fair assumption based on the trailer, 3. fans of the Stallone movie thought this one was "an unnecessary remake of a 90s classic", and you can't really blame them for being skeptical considering the Total Recall remake had flopped just a month earlier)
, but it's become something of a cult classic and for good reason. If you enjoyed Die Hard (1988)
, The Raid (2011)
or Mad Max: Fury Road (2015)
- i.e. pretty straightforward action flicks that knew exactly what they wanted to be and executed it with a mirror-sheen (or perhaps shiny and chrome
) level of polish, you will love Dredd. Warning: You may also fall in love with Anderson.
Fingers crossed for Karl Urban to return to the role in the upcoming TV series!
