Judge Dredd 3D has %100 on Rotten Tomatoes right now.

No really.

dredd is a comic character not a video game chara

Not a video game but I saw it on Saturday, and I have to say that it's pretty awesome! Karl Urban tearing shit up!

Rotten tomatoes puts 100% as a place holder when it only has good scores that will then get less as the "rotten reviews" start coming in close to release (end September).

Edit: in fact I see two rotten reviews are now in, dropping it to 95%.

I enjoyed the film good action, although it felt like I was watching a not as good raid: redemption.

He was once in a video game. He counts.

I didn't even think of where he appeared first, so I can definitely understand the confusion. Sorry about that.

And they actually don't put placeholders at all. Films don't get rated until at least five reviews appear, then they're aggregated based on reviews from there.

Karl is cool but his helmet in the movie looks too big. He also looks really small in that outfit.

I wish we could have had a younger, badass Stallone in his outfit from the 95' flick in this newer movie. Stallone really did look kickbutt in that movie.

judge dredd a character in the 2000ad comics. he was a comic character first . there were games but the comic came first so not a good comparison to use . a lot of comics have turned out to be good film / series. as for games a few were decent but the majority are crap to be honest. I think metal gear solid has potential as does god of war and halo.

"Films don't get rated until at least five reviews appear"

? Go look at looper at the time of writing it had 20 reviews (all tomatoes) and is sitting at 100% but underneath that it says average is 86% as this is the actual score but they arent putting it up until nearer till release.

Mass effect the movie!
An anime about Mr.Vega...
Faith in man kind is waining.

GrahamGolden2290d ago

metal gear is also announced now
if KOJIMA has somethin to do with the movie and co op with the director then it might work

Silent Hill is good imo.
First Mortal Kombat wasn't bad either.
Resident Evil while not true to the story is enjoyable.
Oh and Hitman was pretty entertaining.

I'd say yes, can't wait to see Silent Hill 2 this year

MrChow6662290d ago (Edited 2290d ago )

I agree silent hill is the best adaptation to this date

I think it is only possible for games that doesn't involve fighting like Street Fighter or Mortal Kombat. I feel that even though there are people that know how to do martial arts, making a movie with the game characters unique fighting style can never be done right. Thats why i perfer animation videos over real life movies because the fight scenes are always better.
