This is a 30 minute fan-made film set in the Judge Dredd/2000AD universe starring Judge Minty. Judge Minty is a minor character in the comics – an ageing judge that takes the ‘Long Walk’, a retirement plan of sorts. Obviously it’s a fan film and there are some things it can’t do quite as well as films with a much bigger budget, but it still manages to impress – for example, that Mega-City One is pretty convincing, and Judge Minty (Edmund Dehn) is well acted.
I missed seeing this at the London Super Comic Con (although I did go to the 2000AD panel). At the panel they said it was extremely unlikely there would be a sequel to Dredd (the Karl Urban version) but considering how well that has done on DVD/Blu-ray and how much support there seems to be from fans, perhaps there is hope after all.
And a bonus, here is some music inspired by Mega-City One
I’m all for more of this Vangelis inspired stuff although personally I prefer the amazing soundtrack to Dredd.
