It's silly, but it's fun. Stallone's warble is always entertaining when he barks out "I am the lwawr!"

Having seen the new version some years ago, I figured it was time to check out the first one from the 90's. Yeah, it's not all that good, but who cares, you're watching a 90's action flick. Eat some popcorn and relax.

Sylvester Stallone stars in the futuristic sci-fi action film Judge Dredd. Large concentrations of population and the lack of food and resources have resulted in large densities of crime. A new program has resulted in human soldiers that have the ability to be judge jury and executioner. Judge Dredd is one of the best in his field, but at times his judgement is in question as he seems to want to kill first and ask questions later.

A council of individuals determine the law, trains new cadets to be justice, but even the head of the council wonders if the program they have created is truly the best for the people. The program's sense of justice is in question, but to make matters worse Judge Dredd is framed for murder. His friend Judge Hershey (Diane Lane) tries to defend him, but the evidence is overwhelming which includes a DNA sample. Dredd is sentenced to life in prison and is transported with Fergie (Rob Schneider) a prisoner he sentenced not too long ago. The two work together to clear Dredd's name and return things to order. He is up against his brother (Armand Assante) and violent mechanic robot.

Judge Dredd is a pretty typical blockbuster action film from the 90s. The film is not without campy and cheesy moments. Schneider tries his best to offer the comedic relief in the film. Stallone gives his usual performance. The film does not have many thrilling action sequences, but does a good job with sets to give the movie a futuristic feel. Dredd is pretty much what you would expect and that was not much.

Dredd is campy fun but also ridiculous. Diane Lane and Stallone are good, but Rob Schneider is unbearable.

Gotta love the bad Stallone films. This is definitely up there! "I am the law!" "I knew you'd say that" and Rob Schneider! This movie is very terribly bad but so fun to watch and laugh at :-)

Rob Schneider is... a dystopian future hacker Judge sidekick!

Stupid fun, with an emphasis on stupid.

Corny, over-the-top fun. Most likely to be a guilty pleasure.

I found this movie more accessible and engaging than the 2012 movie, but that's not too surprising since 90's scifi is what I grew up wit so all the tropes and level of quality in this movie is familiar. It was also a nice change from the modern dystopia in which this movie presents a struggle between those of power so when there's the option to try a different way,the possibly fallible system remains because it's what the people in power know best

For what this film is and where it fit in the 90s.. it was a great flick. Loved the young diane lane and stallone at his peak. Just good times

Not as bad as people make it out to be, A weird story but quite entertaining, Corny in places but a pretty decent action movie.

Judge Dredd fails on every technical aspect of conceptual depth and coherent storytelling, but its generic special effects, campy action, over-the-top acting, and unintentional hilarity makes it worth watching as a guilty pleasure.

Why did they include Schneider as a comic relief is still beyond me. Judge Dredd is a horrendous adaptation to the infamous comic strip series, starring Sylvester Stallone as the titular character who is being framed for a crime he didn't commit. The futuristic element was not very well expressed in the film, the action sequences were quite bland. May be enjoyed by fans interested in the comic book genre but others might find it somewhat sub par.

'Judge Dredd' is an infinitely entertaining campy mess. This cliche-ridden, overblown, unintentionally funny pulp-fest is tons of fun for all the wrong reasons. I love it.

not a terrible stallon film really enjoy watching it.

Not as terrible as people like to pretend. There are some really impressive effects (especially for the day) at play. Granted, it's nowhere near as good as the super gritty reboot, but it's still fairly fun. The comedic sidekick is totally unnecessary though.

Over-the-top, goofy, and filled with eye-popping action, Judge Dredd is everything that a classic Stallone movie is supposed to be. Is it stupid? Yes! Is it fun and enjoyable? Absolutely! If your looking for an up beat feel good action film filled with corny (but memorable) one-liners, silly (yet stylish) action, and a somewhat interesting storyline, then Judge Dredd is the movie for you. I like it for what it is. It's a fun and enjoyable ride.

This is the true Dredd.

The worst I can say about this abrasive and loud sci-fi is that Rob Schneider is not the worst thing in it (and he tries to be ... as usual). Only for teenage boys.
