DREDD

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - WEEK IN MOVIES -

Fu­tur­is­tic ac­tion pulp of sur­pris­ingly con­sis­tent qual­ity, good enough to oblit­er­ate mem­o­ries of Sylvester Stal­lone’s dread­ful Judge Dredd (adapted from the same comic- book source). Karl Ur­ban plays the ti­tle char­ac­ter, a hard­line, no- frills cop spoil­ing for a fi ght when a killer nar­cotic nick­named Slo- mo hits Mega- City One. Clever set- piece chases and skir­mishes, and a sly sense of hu­mour round out a very solid ef­fort.

8.30PM, SBS2
