Is it true to the comics? I personally haven't read any of the comics, but I have read a lot of the wiki a few months back, and Judge Dredd intrigues me very much, he, to me at least, is the ultimate bad ass. I hate that term, but he just seems to be. I love the Mega-City One atmosphere. Judge Dredd is an interesting and cool character I think; he's almost kind of like Solid Snake in a few ways I believe, and the aspect about the way the comics are presented, like how every year that passes, a year passes in the comics, so Dredd and all other characters get older by real time, and at some point, Dredd will have to die, unless he somehow gets something to make him live forever. For someone that hasn't read any of the comics, Judge Dredd really intrigues me for the most part.
Now, about the film, there were a lot of people saying it was awesome, but to me, the trailer from the get-go made me think it looked like a high quality fan-made movie, which isn't necessarily ideal, and while I think Karl Urban has been in some fine movies and played good characters (Star Trek), to me he just doesn't justify playing Dredd from the physical side; performance aside, Stallone wore the helmet more attuned to Dredd, with the strong jaw and all, though he took it off, and that's not Dredd at all. I don't know, how was it? And as I asked before, how true is it to the comic? I'm currently using this as my desktop wallpaper, but I cropped it so it doesn't look exactly the same. I will say that Karl Urban does at least frown the way Dredd does. Maybe Urban does fit the Dredd look more than Stallone as I look at it in Google images, but still.
Furthermore, are there even any fans of Judge Dredd here? Have you read any of the comics? I guess that should have been one of my first questions, ha ha. Oh well.
