In case you are not familiar with the Judge Dredd story, the plot takes to the post-apocalyptic world. Where the nuclear war have long past and humanity clumped and survive together in whatever places that is not irradiated by nuclear radiation. Since there are only a few places suitable for living, hence one of the human surviving city came into being, Mega City One. One big dystopic megalopolis. From Boston to Washington D.C, over 800 millions inhabitant.
With such enormous population, to accommodate them would require mega blocks, mega highway, pretty much mega everything. One of this mega block could housed about 75,000 people. That is the size of a small city population, crammed together into one mega apartment block. Well, what can you do when the rest of the world is called Cursed Earth, because some idiots thought that it would be so funny to let the nukes flying.
|Everything is mega except the humanity's heart.|
But this won't be a normal, fat-bellied, wig-wearing judge that we know. This judge takes the justice with them, literally, to the streets. Holding with them, the power of juries, executioners, and judges, allowing this new world judges to cut down some paperwork by immediately giving out their verdict, using their guns.
|I.. can sense someone, stuck up in the arse.. I think..|
Judge Dredd first impression on her is not good. For him as a strict law officer, its either pass or fail, and Anderson's grade of almost pass is nothing to be considered about. She failed, enough said. But the Chief Judge have something else in mind. Anderson mind probe ability is too much of an asset to be let go. So its up to Judge Dredd to evaluate her performance one last time, on the field.
There also flying drones flying all over the city, watching and scanning the citizens of Mega City One. And Judges will respond to any crime committed nearest to them. Good thing the judges are equipped with a badass superbike, complete with GPS tracker and direct communication to Justice Department command center. Also guns.
Judge Dredd and rookie Anderson starts their first on-field duty together in one of the mega blocks called the Peach Tree. Due to insane bat-shit crazy amount of crimes committed, 17,000 case per day, the judges can only respond only to 6% of them. So if they even if they took one mega block, there would be enough crime committed there, they would be spending their whole day in that place.
And they kind of did. Turns out Peach Tree have a serious case of drug trafficking, the new drug called the Slo-Mo. Its the future drug that makes the brain to feel like the time pass a 1% of the normal speed. Doesn't actually enhance body responses even though everything seems to be moving much more slower. But it was in way, beautifully violence.
|This is how it looks with Slo-Mo.|
|This is the reality.|
With just simple bust, the whole organisation would be brought down and crushed. This not your normal officer of the law. This is the judge that can pass judgement just right on the side road, at any time any day. The Peach Tree is controlled by the Ma-Ma Clan. And since Judge Dredd is already here, he might as dismantled everything and cut the paperwork from half to none.
|And of course they wouldn't surrender.|
Your typical gangsters, yes?
|Except in the future, they got themselves some nice gatling guns.|
I cannot believe I made so much grammar mistakes in this one. I know typo happens, but I must be pretty high when I wrote this.. heh
