Re: The Law Returns. This Time With His Helmet On! Judge Dredd!
I've not read any of the comics either but have a vague enough knowledge of Judd Dredd to understand why the first film bothered so many fans. This film is very different, more violent and serious than the first film was. Reverend makes a good analogy by saying it's like a cross between "Training Day and Die Hard" leaning towards the Training Day.
I hope this doesn't mean the reboot Dredd is...
