This Judge Dredd release is campier compared with the recent one but like most of Stallone’s films of the 1990s, it does have a certain charm even when the acting can get… hokey. The Blu-ray at least is a solid package with excellent audio/video transfers and even the single featurette, for what it is, isn’t terrible.

THE MOVIE – 2.5/5

Plot Outline: In a time when all-powerful “judges” act with supreme authority of both the police force and legal system, Judge Dredd (SYLVESTOR STALLONE) is the most feared law enforcer of them all. When a former judge devises a sinister plot to bring him down, Dredd will stop at nothing to even the scales of justice.

SPECIAL FEATURES – 1.25/5

The disc includes Stallone’s Law: The Making of Judge Dredd (20:02; SD) featurette which is, for an older feature (one made for television), not too bad providing behind-the-scenes footage; and the Theatrical Trailer (2:11; SD).


VIDEO – 4.5/5

Buena Vista releases Judge Dredd on Blu-ray for the first time presented in its original 2.35 widescreen aspect ratio. To my surprise and given how often some of these catalogue titles are lazily put out on the market, this one looks great in 1080p high-definition. Colors look well balanced, there’s very little, if any, flaws such as artifacting or scratches and the detail levels is excellent.
