This also isn't "I Heart Reboots" - DREDD Trailer Underwhelms

It may not be a popular opinion, but I have a soft spot for Stallone's "Judge Dredd". True, it pretty much picks clean its source material to make what is ostensibly just another Stallone shoot 'em up. But it's a damn fun shoot 'em up. And Danny Cannon had some style back then. It's a bold, brash piece of big budget filmmaking.

This new film doesn't seem like its gonna be a lot of fun. Urban doesn't have a very good vocal presence and Thirlby still seems like a bad casting choice. Plus, coming so soon after "The Raid", this film seems so small-minded in its scope. Super dour in its tone, it seems like it swings too far to the other side of the fence; it may take its source material too seriously.
