From Amazon.co.uk

Judge Dredd is one of those movies that doesn't have a brain of its own, so it can only rip off a lot of ingredients from other, better movies. It's a mishmash of Blade Runner, Total Recall, and The Road Warrior, with a dash of Star Wars tossed in for good measure. As if that weren't enough, it's got Sylvester Stallone, who seems to be the only one in the movie who's in on the game and knows it's all a sci-fi scam. Like The Fifth Element a few years later, Judge Dredd depicts a futuristic megalopolis packed with crowded vertical overgrowth and rampant commerce, where anarchy reigns supreme. Violent "block wars" are fought by lawless citizens with machine guns, and Judge Dredd (Stallone) is one of the city's heavily armed policemen, given free rein to judge and execute the perpetrators of violence. But Dredd himself is subjected to judgement and swift justice when his own gun is identified in the murder of a prominent TV reporter, forcing him to do whatever he can to clear his name. Diane Lane plays his partner in crime-fighting and romance, and Rob Schneider provides juvenile comic relief as Dredd's streetwise sidekick. Impressive special effects are on vivid display, and the movie's fun for what it's worth. Lower your expectations and you just might enjoy it. --Jeff Shannon

Danny Cannon's Judge Dredd is an entertaining enough sci-fi action flick, but I can't help wincing whenever I watch it. Cannon claims to be a fan of the original comic strip, which suggests that he didn't have a great deal of creative control, because plenty of liberties are taken here.

I would never have expected the makers of the movie to be 100% faithful to the comic, but some of the changes that were made were superficial and pointless, and that's what irritates me. For one thing it's set in the wrong year, the Chief Judge is inexplicably called Chief Justice, Rico is locked up in Aspen rather than Titan, the heroic Chief Judge Griffin is one of the movie's villains, while in the comic both McGruder and Silver were Chief Judges... and Silver was black! And another thing... if Rico is Dredd's clone, shouldn't they be identical??

As a movie it's okay. The dialogue is pretty awful (e.g. "I knew you'd say that"), and the acting is adequate (Stallone is fairly dire and Rob Schneider is exceptionally annoying as Fergie, but Diane Lane does well as Judge Hershey, Armand Assante is deliciously nasty as Rico and Max von Sydow adds some much-needed professionalism to proceedings). The action scenes also just-about pass muster, although the hover-bike chase fails to convince, and the climactic punch-up in the Statue of Liberty is a bit of a damp squib.

In the end though, it's all fairly entertaining nonsense. It's just a shame that when the producers decide to bring Dredd to the big screen, they didn't have the courage to do it properly - as far as I'm concerned not hiring John Wagner or Alan Grant to work on the script was a crime worthy of life in an Iso-Cube.

This film was almost universally hated, by critics and Dredd fans alike, so I didn't get round to watching it for a long time. Dredd is one of my all time favourite comics and I didn't want to see it ruined by a bad film.
WHAT'S GOOD. Sylvester Stallone is the perfect man to play Dredd. I know not everyone agrees, but just scroll up and look at the picture. The first half hour or so of the film captures the atmoshere of the comics and MegaCity 1 perfectly, and gives anyone a good idea of what the comics are like.
WHAT'S BAD. The story. In short the story was not right for the character. I can understand that the film makers wanted Rico as the villain because it gives a lot of the back story as to where Dredd came from, but the way in which it was done had too many holes in it. Like the fact that Dredd has identical DNA to Fargo as well as Rico, was completely ignored. Dredd shouldn't have been sent to prison in the first place, he should have been chasing Rico round MegaCity 1. Diane Lane was very pretty, but essentially mis-cast as Judge Hershey (who's older in the comics and Dredd's superior) .As for Dredd's comedy sidekick bloke... He really DID deserve to go to prison! He was totally unneccesary - less said about him the better.
The other thing that needs to be mentioned is that in the film Dredd takes his helmet off! This upset many a Dreddhead, since he NEVER takes his helmet off in the comics - even when he's standing around in his underpants. I concede this probably couldn't be easily avoided on film, and it wasn't totally gratuitous but still, on screen Stallone was Dredd until he took off the helmet. Then he was just Stallone.
Overall as a film it isn't bad, it's an entertaining piece of sci-fi. If you like the film, you'll like the comics more. If you like the comics the film will leave you cold.

after watching the latest Dredd film (brilliant by the way) I was yearning for more Judge Dredd and really the only option is this, This film has aged quite well, I must say I like it more than when I first saw it obviously the 2000 AD purists will be slating me but I really enjoyed this, its not as good as the new dredd film but definitely worth a watch

Format: DVD
Positive.
1)Sylvester Stallone tries his best with the material he's given & there are some gteat action scenes.
2)The huge budget show a vast landscape of Mega City & beyond.

Negative.
1)Rob Schneider as Fergie a comic figure that ruins drains all drama & tension out the movie, Danny Cannon should never have cast this prat.
2)The comic book violence as the remake is hardcore & with Sly as Dredd this should've delivered but the violence feels toned down for a Dredd movie & some scenes far too tongue & cheek.

Dvd, Running Time 92 minutes, Trailer, Making of.

Review.
This dvd has 2 missing scenes one of were Dredd emptys a gun on one the Angel Gangs family & a headbutt scene in the Judge Hershey fight, This is the 21st century BBFC treat us as adults not children it's rated 15.

This 80 million dollar film flopped in the US but did better here as Judge Dredd is based on Mega City's 2000AD character.

Sly plays Dredd quite well but the helmet doesn't seem quite correct compared to the remake & he commits the ultimate sin & removes his helmet to the fan's horror.

The films plot is about Block War's, Rico Dredds best friend & as it turns out brother escapes from prison & frames Dredd for murder banishing him to a prison planet.

But as the spaceship carrying the prisoners crashes due to an attack by the Angel Gang Family Dredd & Fergie a guy Dredd arrested earlier in the Block War scenario are captured by the Angel Gang as they hate Dredd for his love for the law.

Dredd breaks free of his shackles during a all out escape & a fight breaks out which sees Dredd taking down the Angel Gang family.
