I've been a Dredd fan since he was introduced in issue 2 of 2000AD (gives my age away a bit).
I enjoyed the original Dredd movie release and was interested to see how it could be shoe horned into a 30 minute package.
Well Rogue did it and it's great. The movie still flows well and the cuts are not noticeable at all, barring Anderson's sudden reappearance with Dredd after her escape. If I hadn't seen the original and this was presented to me as a short, I don't think I would have felt anything was missing.

I agree with earlier reviewers that splitting the movie into two halves was jarring and cut into my immersion. I understand that it's supposed to be a Super 8 type cut but no Super 8 effects were added and the title isn't "Super 8 Cut" so why not leave out the reel change?

Minor gripes aside I'd recommend this cut to anyone, Dredd fan or not.

Thanks Rogue ^_^
