There he is, Karl Urban as Judge Dredd in the brand new movie version of Judge Dredd. Currently shooting in South Africa, this version promises to be more faithful than the Stallone disaster from a decade or so ago.
It looks… fine. The helmet looks incredibly plastic (which, by the weird logic of early images means it’s probably made of some very heavy metal. Seriously, the faker the pre-release stuff looks the more likely it is that it was real on set. Not sure why this is. A lighting thing, I guess), and Urban doesn’t quite have that epic Dredd jawline, but I’ll take it
What I’m really concerned about is the tone anyway. And that Urban never speaks. What do you guys think? Weigh in below.
