Although this is considered to be a remake of the 1995 Sylvester Stallone ‘Judge Dredd’, the now titled ‘Dredd’ is said to be unrelated to it’s predecessor (which is a good thing). I wasn’t a fan of the original, so this one can only be better, right? ‘Dredd’ stars Karl Urban (Dredd), Olivia Thirlby (Anderson) and Lena Headey (Ma-Ma). Below is the movie’s storyline…
The story of Dredd takes place on a fictional Earth created as a result of the Atomic Wars. Survivors of this period are currently living in Mega-Cities, which protects its citizens from the Cursed Earth, a radioactive desert environment populated by mutants. The main story takes place in Mega-City One, where Judge Dredd (Karl Urban), a senior law enforcement officer, teams up with a cadet called Judge Anderson (Olivia Thirlby) to track down a terrorist organization lead by Ma-Ma (Lena Headey), who is responsible for selling a reality-altering drug called Slo-Mo.
