Re: The Law Returns. This Time With His Helmet On! Judge Dredd!

Hard to really get a good impression of the bike. Remember all of this is gonna be filmed in 3D as well. All i know is that the script was great. Maybe it won't translate well to film?

Re: The Law Returns. This Time With His Helmet On! Judge Dredd!

It's got Urban and Headley, some of the props and sets look very nice and if the script is good, that's probably enough for me.

I mean, it's only £4 and, what, an hour and half, maybe two that I'd be giving up of my life to see it

Re: The Law Returns. This Time With His Helmet On! Judge Dredd!

The bike is certainly odd looking, like they took a racer and made it ride like a dirtbike, whereas the comics version is more like a Harley cruiser crossed with a steamroller. Still...it's better then the Stallone version I think. That always looked very top heavy and always on the verge of tipping over. Almost as if they took a real bike and stuck an oversized fibreglass shell on top...

Mind you that's probably the worse angle to see the thing from as it's probably only really meant to be seen from the front...and at least it does have the signature HUGE tyres. Also I suppose it should also be worth remembering that Olivia Thirlby is supposed to be able to ride one of these and hopefully *not* look like a midget on the back of an elephant. So they couldn't make it too big for her.

Out of interest, a quick google images search turns up this Lawmaster concept for that fan film that's in the works. Faithful to a fault, but I don't think this approach would work so well with the kind of art direction they're going for in Dredd. Still, makes for an interesting point of comparison.

£4? where do you go to the cinema? 1985?

A matinee is much cheaper than a night time showing, and if one goes without seeing it in 3D, then £4 is quite reasonable.

I still can't see how you'd do it for £4, the cheapest I can find by me is £6.

More accurately, took a twist-and-go two-stroke moped and stuck a fibreglass shell over it...

Matinees in the cinema I go to are £5, including 3D. Their evening shows aren't much dearer.

Those things were mopeds? Bloody hell it's a wonder they could move at all...though come to think of it we never did see one going at any real speed, probably not even 5mph.

By contrast the opening of the new film will apparantly entail a high speed pursuit, so however they film it it'd have to be based on something a lot more powerful than a poxy little 50cc engine.

The "Hero" ones were certainly mopeds. IIRC there were some stunt ones built on 650cc bikes, intended to show them roaring off at high speed, but they turned out to be totally uncontrollable...

Not surprising considering how top heavy the shell looked and I imagine the modified handlebars just made it worse. I actually just had a look at the opening scenes on youtube and you can clearly see the rider was struggling to stop the thing from tipping when slowing down. They would have been better off using the same stupidly wide wheels as the source material. It's not as if they ever need to lean in or even make tight turns.

Looks like this is the film's first teaser poster.

^ Not bad looking; could have come from the 1995 movie but I suppose that's down to a certain amount of fidelity to the source comic book. Though I suppose the 1995 movie might not have gone for the blood-splatter.
