When Comic Book Movies Go Bad
Caught the tail end of Judge Dredd
on TV over the
weekend. Good lord, that was bad. Some of the standout low
- Diane Lane? Noooooo!!
- Rob Schneider as the annoying sidekick? Did someone think
this was Batman and Robin? And that Adam Sandler was
playing the Dark Knight?
- Why did they show the clones emerging from their cocoons, only to
die without doing anything? I thought this was going to be the
closest we got to seeing Judge Death. Yet the creepy-looking
clones don't fight anyone--they just get destroyed in some lame lab
explosion. (Was something edited out for TV?)
- The hoverbike flying scenes looked like they were right out of
one of those crappy Universal Studios "simulation" rides.
- Favorite Line: [Stallone, to bad guy] "I should have
put you away myself...personally!"
If the entire movie is this bad, I may have to rent it sometime just
