The character of Judge Dredd was created in the 1970s by John Wagner, the same guy who wrote the stunning 1997 graphic novel A History of Violence. The movie version of Judge Dredd, on the other hand, starred Sylvester Stallone and was directed by a guy who also shot I Still Know What You Did Last Summer. Need we say more?
When this flop was being made, people were still under the impression that Stallone was a good actor, but of course they were wrong. Judge Dredd turned out to be one of the biggest duds of the '90s. Fortunately, Hollywood is ready to amend its mistakes with a new Judge Dredd movie, slated for a 2012 release and starring the talented Karl Urban. At least the bar has been set incredibly low.
