Forget Sylvester Stallone and his critically panned 1995's adaptation/butchery of British's most loved comic character, Judge Dredd. Trailer of this fan film focusing on another Judge character, presented Dredd and Mega City One the way it should have been all along.

Directed by British-based Graphic Designer Steven Sterlacchini, the fan film, Judge Minty, certainly seems to be leaps and bounds ahead of the 1995 sorry-excuse-of-a-comic-to-film-adaptation of the Judge Dredd strip, famously featured in the British comic 2000 AD. Featuring Sylvester Stallone as the eponymous character, the film won accolades of numerous "worst film of the year" awards back then. While Rebellion and 2000 AD, working with DNA Films, have announced that a new movie in 3D will be launching some time next year with Karl Urban in the enormous boots of Dredd, one have to wonder how that film will do when compared to this fan film.

Check out the awesome "work-in-progress" trailer, embedded below.

Here's the official plot synopsis:

The film will be based on Judge Minty, a character created by John Wagner and Mick McMahon. An aging Judge who is forced to 'retire' from the streets, mainly it seems because he has become too compassionate.

He chooses to take 'The Long Walk' into the Cursed Earth, there "to take law to the lawless". The film will be based around his first experiences in the radioactive wastes.

By the way, it is interesting to note that 2000 AD artist Greg Staples portrayed the role of Dredd himself in the film. Here's another cool shot of him, along a shot of Edmund Dehn as the eponymous Judge Minty.
