COMMENTARYCAST: Dredd (2012 Blu-Ray)

Posted: May 26, 2015 in CommentaryCast, Dredd
The second CommentaryCast is the criminally under-seen action-flick, Dredd. Despite decent reviews and a focused story, the film failed to make much of a mark on the box office and as such, the much-promised sequel is all but dead now. Fans have been holding out hope, but at this point deeming it “unlikely” seems schockingly optimistic. Despite failing monetarily, the movie succeeds is spades with it’s impressive visuals, effective violence, excellent performances and reverence to its source material. Brian and I are completely unable to hide our admiration for everyone involved in this film. So give this a listen…and then go buy the Dredd Blu-Ray.

NOTES:
-Recorded in September 2014.
-The character was adapted to the screen once before in 1995 with Sylvester Stallone playing the title role in Judge Dredd.
-Judge Dredd and the world of Mega City One was created by John Wagner and Carlos Ezquerra for the comic 2000 AD.
-The character has been adapted to multiple comic series by multiple publishers.
-A sequel comic (Dredd: Underbelly) was published shortly after the film.
-FACT CHECK: At one point I misidentify John Wanger as Matt Wagner…a different comic book writer.
