1995’s Judge Dredd starring Sylvester Stallone is generally regarded as a pile of trash. The first 15 minutes is something that all 2000 AD fans can probably appreciate – but after that, it’s awful. Stallone takes his helmet off (something Judge Dredd never does) and the film never gets going.
Did I mention Rob Schneider is in it?
2012’s Dredd, however, is regarded as a much better film. It was well perceived by fans and critics alike, but bombed at the Box Office. Some blame it on poor marketing – while others blame it on the stigma of the Stallone film we mentioned above.
This got us to thinking. What if that ’95 film had actually been a good one? Well, we decided to re-imagine the Stallone film with the tone of the 2012 version – and the results were pretty cool:
While the 1995 has a bit of a cult following, most hardcore 2000 AD fans despise the film, due to the fact that it wasn’t really comic book accurate at all – aside from what I mentioned earlier in the article. 2012 was the year we got a great Dredd film and hopefully, it will get a continuation at some point in the future in either a film or series.
