‘Deadline spoke to Stuart Ford of IM Global, who has a vested interest in the film (given that IM Global stumped up a good chunk of the funding for the movie), and thus was hardly likely to put a negative spin on it. He reported, though, that “the reaction was great. It was as packed as any screening I’ve seen in Cannes. There were people sitting on the floor in the front and the back of the room”. Even with dodgy air conditioning, nobody left the screening, “even though it was about a hundred degrees”.
Ford describes Dredd as an “edgy, cool film with a rocking soundtrack”, arguing that it “appears very fresh and distinctive. It’s Dirty Harry meets District 9″. Make of that what you will.
