It's always sad when Hollywood rips off a great indie film - unless it turns out as well as the spectacular Karl Urban sci-fi thriller Dredd ripping off the equally amazing Indonesian action masterpiece The Raid: Redemption!
Hollywood has always had an originality problem: they'd always rather steal or repackage a successful foreign film than come up with something new -
- and the list of these junky remakes is a depressingly long one, from the slick genius of Luc Besson's La Femme Nikita being turned into the tapioca Point of No Return,
Or Spike Lee's ill-advised reimagining of Park Chan-wook's legendary Oldboy.
But tonight's double feature suffers no such generational loss
- Join us as MG takes on the epic Indonesian actioner The Raid, and its brilliant sci-fi rehash: Karl Urban's Dredd!
Separated at birth: The Raid & Dredd!
