In a dystopian future, Joseph Dredd, the most famous Judge (a police officer with instant field judiciary powers), is convicted for a crime he did not commit and must face his murderous counterpart.
“Judge Dredd” is a science fiction action film released in 1995, directed by Danny Cannon and starring Sylvester Stallone in the titular role. The film is based on the comic book character Judge Dredd, created by John Wagner and Carlos Ezquerra, which first appeared in the British science fiction anthology “2000 AD” in 1977.
The film is set in a post-apocalyptic future where society has collapsed and the only form of law enforcement is carried out by “Judges,” who act as judge, jury, and executioner. Judge Dredd is the most famous and feared of all the Judges, but when he is framed for murder, he must fight to clear his name and bring the real killer to justice.

Despite this, “Judge Dredd” has gained a cult following over the years and remains a beloved classic for fans of the character and the genre.
