Judge Dredd is a 1995 American science fiction action film, based on the comic book character of the same name, directed by Danny Cannon, produced by Edward R. Pressman, Charles Lippincott and Beau E. L. Marks, and written by William Wisher Jr. and Steven E. de Souza. The film stars Sylvester StalloneDiane LaneRob SchneiderArmand Assante, and Max von Sydow.

Judge Dredd takes place in 2080 and depicts a dystopian world and the crime-ridden metropolis Mega-City 1. Following an unspecified disaster that turned Earth into a “cursed” wasteland, the survivors established a corps of Judges whose role combines that of police, judge, jury and executioner. The film follows Judge Joseph Dredd, one of the most dedicated Street Judges who had been framed for murder by his own half-brother—the psychotic Rico.

The film was released on June 30, 1995. Reviewers criticized the film for its lack of script, originality, and faith to its source material, along with Stallone’s excessive acting. The film is considered to be one of Stallone’s worst films, but received praise for its visual style, effects, stunts and action sequences, having been nominated for Saturn Awards. The film’s reboot titled Dredd was released in 2012, starring Karl Urban in the title role.
