you need a flint to start a fire.

Like other reviewers I found this too short and they didn't include the "prequel" strip from 2000ad introducing ma-ma's "origin".
However, what we got was good,top notch good trying to keep itself in the "dredd" world rather than the canon already prevelant in 2000ad and the magazine it maintains a gritty feel to it. Not too keen on the rehash of a drug storyline but that is a minor quibble and Henry flint has been a major favourite of mine since I first became aware of his work with the "incubus" dredd/aliens crossover. He does use his standard dredd chin rather than a representation of karl urban as he did in the aforementioned prequel but that's probably a copyright thing.
There has been an announcement of a further sequel (comic,sadly,not film) and I for one want to see the judges in the regular comic adopt the movie uniform in their post chaos day world.
