Hear is another comic book adaptation flick. I must say however that the look, color tone, action and feel are pretty authentic and close to the original Judge Dredd comic book series.

Ma Ma (Headey) as the chief villain, violent gang leader is at the top of her game. Dredd (Urban) is robotic with his stiff movements and speech. Like Schwarzenegger, he mainly spits out one liners. Every blue moon one might be funny. Set in the future after America’s destruction where 300 million people are clustered in one giant metropolis that stretches from Boston to D.C., lawlessness is the order of the day and this flick will keep your attention.
