First review is in following a showing at the Sand Diego Comic Con http://comicbook.com/blog/2012/07/12/dr ... om-review/
The Die Hard comparison I made above isn’t made lightly, either; it’s really two people against the world in a series of increasingly-unrealistic and yet awesomely entertaining scenes of combat. The overwhelming forces that Dredd and Anderson find themselves mowing through serve to make their entire ordeal feel heightened–like eventually they’ll just be swarmed and consumed like in a zombie movie. That they’re able, time and again, to find a clever way to reverse the tide and come out with some spectacular win is the kind of thing that makes an audience stand up and cheer–even if it’s during a time when something really grotesque and inhumane is happening to someone onscreen. 10/10
Promising, looking forward to this.
