Not being British I've never understood this: If everyone hates Margaret Thatcher so much, why did you guys keep voting her into power?

General / Stallone's Dredd Movie
« on: 26 October, 2001, 12:53:37 am »
I'm new to this message board, so please forgive me if I'm raking over old coals here...

Personally, I love the first Dredd movie. Okay, maybe "love" is too strong a word, but I do like it a lot. I think it looks cool, has some great action sequences, and it about as true to the Dredd mythos as we could expect from Hollywood (it was closer to the "real" Dredd than the DC Comics version)

As for whether Stallone was a good choice... The jury is still out on that one. I would have liked to see someone who didn't remove his helmet, so a non-star would have been a good choice.

For the next two movies, Dredd should be played by someone a lot bigger - maybe Dolph Lundgren? He doesn't have to act much - just be tough (and permanently helmetted).

Regardless of the actor or the budget, the key thing to get right is the script...
