5.0 out of 5 stars The man of the law 31 July 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have been a Dredd fan for more years than I care to remember,so I may be little bias. I found the book easy to read. All thou Dredd is the main character, the book also follows a wally squad judge. For those people new to Judge Dredd's world and mega city one, a wally squad judge is a under cover judge. I feel that the story brings both characters together very well. The stories plot line is interesting. I will not say what plot line is about as it spoil the reader or potential readers enjoyment of this book. Also liked the glossary of things from Dredd's world,very useful for newcomers to Judge Dredd and mega city one.

Good story. Well written although it is upsetting what happens to Trager in the end. A good judge case romp.

5.0 out of 5 stars A COMPLEX DREDD STORY 23 Feb. 2006
By Tim Janson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Final Cut is one of the more complex and multi-layered plots to be found in any of the Dredd books series. If it's even possible, the story is darker and grimmer than even the usual Dredd stories. We open to the brutal scene of a young woman being brutally tortured and killed, with her body tossed into a chemical dump where it will be slowly dissolved. When a construction crew working on the new building of a wealthy and well-connected man named Peat, uncover the remains of the body and several others, Dredd comes in to investigate. Unfortunately, the chemicals have taken their toll and the only remaining clue is a titanium earring that lodged in the skull of the victim, resistant to the chemicals.

Dredd confronts Peat over the discovery of the bodies, as well as an incident that took place earlier in the evening at the opening of his latest building. A popular music star was making an appearance and was the victim of an assassination attempt. Her bodyguards were also in possession of illegal weapons. This eventually draws Dredd into conflict with chief judge Hershey who needs Dredd to tow the line around the influential Mr. Peat. This doesn't sit too well with Dredd as you may imagine. While all of this is going on, Judge Trager, a member of the mysterious, undercover Wally squad, is knee deep in trouble himself. He's fallen in with the Dansky gang who deal in illegal arms sales in Mega-City One. The gang is set to make a major arms purchase as well as buying a mysterious package for a client who the Dansky brothers seem to fear a great deal. Thus it is that we have three plots running throughout the book with Dredd investigating the bodies found in the dump as well as the attempted assassination, and the Wally squad's involvement with the arms dealers. How are they all connected?

What I loved about Final Cut is that the usual sci-fi elements are downplayed. This could easily be a story taking place in present day. It is at its core a gritty, brutal, street crime drama with mysterious murders, influential but shady businessmen, and ruthless gangs. Writer Matthew Smith as composed one of the best Dredd books yet, requiring Dredd to do so much more than just blow the bad guys away. He needs not only his investigative skills but also needs to display some rare diplomacy as well. It was also interesting to a glimpse inside the mysterious Wally Squad as well. These are some very "different" judges than fans are used to seeing.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not for the kids. 19 Jan. 2006
By Daniel Kelly - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Warning - this book is intended for a far more mature audience than the other books in the series.

The first chapter starts out gritty, with a very detailed gruesome crime being committed. It was a shock at first, as this seemed so different from the other Black Flame Judge Dredd novels. I stuck with it though, and I'm really glad I did.

While Judge Dredd does play a large part in the story, we also get to see what life in the Wally Squad (undercover judges) is really like. This was not a campy adventure, but a dark story, in the vein of Blade Runner, and other more mature futuristic tales. If you are enjoy Blade Runner, you will probably enjoy this book.

A great story, with many twists and turns. This series just keeps getting better.
4.0 out of 5 stars Solid Dredd read 13 Jan. 2015
By mapcase - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I'm a "mid-range" Dredd fan... I'm familiar with more than just the 2 movies (Karl Urban one is great, Stallone's not so much), but not near as much as the die-hard and long-time fans... so that's where I'm coming from in my expectations for this book. However, I'm an avid comic and book reader, so that plays into this review as well.

This well-written story deals with a group of sadists that get satisfaction by torturing people strapped to a chair, while still-photographing it for a black market torture magazine. Dredd gets on the case along with an undercover judge named Trager (who's part is prominent in the story, almost to the point of co-headlining it with Dredd). All the Dredd and Mega-City elements you'd expect are there, along with some vicious and heartbreaking moments. The writing really puts you there, whether on location or giving you a glimpse into a character's mindset.

The only thing that I wasn't totally keen on was that Trager's parts of the story were told in First Person, where all the rest of the book was done in Third Person. I didn't like jumping back and forth between those 2 methods. I prefer a book to pick one (prefernce is Third Person) and stick with it. But that's me. I probably would've given it 5 stars if not for that.

A solid, horrific story, I read this as part of a "Dredd" collection: 3 stories in one book, tied-in to the 2012 Dredd movie (and featuring Karl Urban's Dredd on the cover).
5.0 out of 5 stars I'm Hooked on Dredd! 27 Oct. 2012
By DC - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I was worried about a novelization of a comic book character but after watching the new movie I decided to try this and one other (Judge Dredd Year One: City Fathers".

This story was gripping from the beginning and I finished it in one sitting. The opening has been described by others so I won't go there. The two story lines going on is not confusing and eventually brings it all back together. Dredd is the title character but it was Trager who stole the book. An interesting take on the Judge role and the possible disillusionment of totalitarian enforcement, desire to absolutely control, and the need to feel like your making a difference.

I would recommend this book as a good Saturday read when it is bad weather and no movie on.
