Description: For many, the satisfied twenties were not very happy, with high unemployment, poverty and a bitter disillusioned youth. But at the same time there was prohibition in Norway, with large-scale smuggling and easy-earned money. Ernst, an unemployed architect, stumbles onto the smuggler path, and replaces a gray, boring life with a lush, rowdy and colourful world. Klara, the woman he loves, walks away from him, and Jenny becomes his fresh girlfriend. Together with Hugo and Elsa, these four create a number of smuggling trips by vehicle - with large profits - but it's not enough. So Ernst invests in boats, and that's when the really messy smuggling starts. He operates in the whole Oslo Fjord, all the method down to Rotterdam, pursued by police and customs, with his infamous torpedo boats.

Separate Volume #

Released 4/6/2006

Description: It isn’t that strange, that no two surfers have the same exact approach to a wave. It is an extension of hero and everyone is different. In the making of Separate Volume, the intention was to present how every member of the squad is unique. A lot of our surfers have never been spotlighted or even seen outside of a magazine, so this was their possibility to shine. The film also delves deeper into surfers that you have seen hundreds of times but still know nothing about. Nathan Fletcher has voices in his head that create him travel the world and surf to a various tune. In typical Hawaiian style, Dustin Barca had to war for everyone’s respect and it is undeniable in his surfing. You will see Brent Dorrington, who at 17 has that natural surfing style that echoes a young Tom Curren. Chris Ward’s unbridled power and mix of wild abandon produces spontaneity in each aspect of his surfing and his life.

Dredd Reviews:

I'm a large fanatic of the comic 2000AD and the hero Judge Dredd since 1979, and this movie fully pleased me. They changed all the right things and kept all the right things. Director Pete Travis tackled the trouble of filming a comic ebook by making something that looks nothing like a comic ebook and more like an action film shot on location, with a easy linear plot that keeps rolling and never slows down.Megacity 1 is made markedly less futuristic than the comic in order to become so believable that it is difficult to say where the true slums of Cape City end and the CGI kilometre high town blocks start. I have an uncomfortable feeling that in less than a hundred years towns like this may now exist.The comic Judge's uniform works on paper but can't in true life - giant golden eagles, shoulder pads and bronze name badges hanging off a leather one-piece body suit would sag, wobble and look daft. The film gives us body armour that looks like it now gets used whilst keeping the helmet exactly the same. The result is striking and believable, like everything else in this film.The plot revolves around a drug which makes time seem to slow down a hundred times, the excellent excuse for scenes of ultra slo-mo explosive bloody (and beautiful) anatomically correct violence that earn this movie its 18 rating. Not a kid's film at all. Each helping actor looks like they came out of a gang documentary, scarred, nasty, sweaty and mean. Lena Headey fully kicks ass as the ruthless gang king Ma Ma, calmly relishing the deaths of her enemies, eyes sledging from narcotic addiction.In a method this is Olivia Thirlby's movie, since she gets the hero arc, rookie judge Cassandra Anderson assigned to Dredd for evaluation and finding herself on a very steep learning curve. She is vulnerable, spikey and tough as named for, vital to the film in order to balance Dredd.How do you enjoy Dredd? He is the opposite of a character. He has no private arc, never changes or grows. He has no sense of humour, the comic finds that by placing utterly deadpan 'ol stony- face in ironic cases that reflect off him. And where do you search an actor prepared to wear a helmet obscuring everything but his mouth and chin for the entire 95 minutes? Karl Urban gotta be a large fanatic himself to enjoy the part so right. One reviewer described his performance as "ego-free" and it is. I didn't see Urban anywhere in this movie, all I saw was Dredd.Me and Dredd-heads everywhere thank you Karl. You smashed it.


Dredd (2012 is one of the greatest science fiction action movie adapted by comic ebook 2000 AD. It is one of my private favourite movies. This is the hero that kicks ass! This film is so much better than original Stallone film. Stallone's Judge Dredd did not kicks ass, Karl Urban's Dredd did! I love this movie to death I love it so much and it is better than Judge Dredd (1995) and it everytime will be! Dredd kills like 50 folks in here, there are 100 of bodies everywhere I love this action movie to death! Lena Headey is such a terrible ass, I said you the girl can kick ass and she would kick Emilia Clarke's ass anytime. Lena was such a terrible ass testing pretty Sarah Connor in Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles TV Series (2008). This film is a lot of fun. Ma-Ma is not the law... I am the law. Dredd was a better comic adaptation of not only the storyline of Mega Town One but also of Judge Dredd the character. If you were left with a terrible taste in your mouth from Judge Dredd 1995 film then this is the excellent flavor. Variety of action and gore to hold any guy entertained and before you realize it you are at the end. A gotta see not only for Judge Dredd fanatics but action fanatics also. The darkness and violence of the film is how its suppose to be and the action just keeps building up throughout the movie. Action is well paced and believable. Not a dull moment.It is very violent, which I enjoy, but others may search it too much. This movie is such a terrible ass, he shots a bullet to the guys face and it melts his face off, that's awesome!!! There's a lot of slow-motion in here, but allow me say you something: Slow-Motions in here works, there is the reason for the Slow-Motion okay. Later as he kicks the door in and he begins shooting folks and in slow-motion you can see the bullets slash in the people's up and that is great, awesome! Lena Headey plays a nice ass villain, boy you wish to see her ass kicked! You wish to see that Judge Dredd takes her up in the air, "Your going down, your going down true good." I love this film I had a nice time seen it, it is a solid Rater R reboot film for an adults and not a children. You can see folks slash in a half for a real 80's throwback kick ass Science Ficton/Action fresh wave classic I'm glad I enjoyed this film. It deserves much more respect than it garnered in the press and ticket sales. The acting is top-notch, a easy yet elegant plot device, and nice cinematography. It may not have made a lot of cash or been given the respect it deserves at this time, but I have a feeling that subsequent generations will search a hidden gem in this masterpiece. Personally I love Dredd, like any another comic hero or true person witch stays real to his honor and values of life or society without making himself the exception of his own rules. That's real ideology. Any another thing is propaganda or personality problem. The globe has irradiated itself from nuclear war. The world is all but a barren wasteland, with its remaining inhabitants crowded into Mega-Cities. Mega-City One's population is 800 million, with its zone stretching from Boston to Washington D.C. Amongst the crowded chaos stands one force to bring order; a force that serves as jury, executioner, and Judge. On a day when Dredd (Karl Urban) is assigned rookie, Cassandra Anderson (Olivia Thirlby), for assessment, they would receive more than they bargained for on her first day. In response to an initial homicide call at the town block of Peach Trees, they also explore a drug ring run by a girl named Ma-Ma (Lena Heady). But she won't have the Judges taking one of her boys into custody. And in an attempt to thwart them, she seals the block's blast doors, leaving the Judges to fend for themselves as they war to survive. In the future, America is a dystopian wasteland. The recent scourge is Ma-Ma, a prostitute-turned-drug pusher with a risky fresh drug and aims to take over the city. The only chance of stopping her is an elite group of urban police named Judges, who combine the duties of judge, jury and executioner to deliver a brutal brand of swift justice. But even the top-ranking Judge, Dredd (Karl Urban), discovers that taking down Ma-Ma isn't as simple as it seems in this explosive adaptation of the hugely famous comic series.That is your primary plot it is a lot of interesting games that create this film the bleak and desolate sci-fi actioner that it is. It is a dystopian Science Fiction action flick related to Robocop (1987). This movie works while Robocop (2014) reboot failed! Dredd is a 2012 science fiction action movie directed by Pete Travis and written and produced by Alex Garland. It is based on the 2000 AD comic strip Judge Dredd and its eponymous hero created by John Wagner and Carlos Ezquerra. I am giving this movie A 10/10 because it deserves it! I love this movie!


The primary aim of Dredd is easy – it needs to be bold, real to the source material and full of juicy violence, enough to wipe out the memories of the notoriously terrible Stallone attempt of 1995 that threw plenty of cash at the screen without bothering to work on anything resembling a decent script.The hero of Judge Dredd, actually entering his 35th year in UK comic 2000AD (they know it's 2012 - don't ask), isn't a complicated one. He is, as he is fond of stating, the law. The time is the future, and amidst the wasteland that is America there is a single, heavy town with 800 million inhabitants, appropriately named Mega Town One. It's quite the scumhole, and the only thing that stands between it and total chaos are the Judges, trained for years to be the ultimate in law enforcement, yet so outnumbered they can only handle 6% of the crimes committed. This, people, is as thin as the blue line gets.The movie is written by long time fanatic Alex Garland (28 Days later, Sunshine), and has had plenty of input from Dredd's author (and still main writer even now) John Wagner. Filmed in South Africa on what passes for a tight budget these days (especially for Sci-Fi), it should be compared to District 9 in terms of the sheer effort place into it, with a effect that is similarly impressive although aesthetically miles apart. Director Pete Travis (Endgame) does an perfect job, and between them they have turned in a movie that will stand the use of time as a superior, adult action movie.The premise is reasonably simple, something that works well as an introduction to what is, in the comics at least, a sprawling future world. Dredd is accompanied on patrol by rookie Judge Anderson, very well played by Olivia Thirlby, who is on the verge of failing her final assessment but is being given a second possibility because of her powerful, and rare, psi abilities. A routine triple homicide (it's that sort of city) turns into a siege when they are trapped in a heavy turret block by criminal nutjob Ma Ma (Lena Headey) and forced to war their method out and stop her manufacturing the addictive fresh drug, Slo Mo. Obviously there's a bit more to it than that, but this is the primary set up and it works very well indeed, allowing for plenty of violence, some hero development and no several explosions.I can't write this review without focusing on Karl Urban, who has previously stood out for his perfect turn as Dr McCoy in the Star Trek revival. Not scared to go through an whole film with a helmet on, he is spot on as Dredd. He gives us an emotionless machine, a boy who cares for nothing but the law, but a boy you wish to receive behind and cheer on as he splats terrible guys left right and centre. The humanity comes from Anderson, and it supports that Thirlby doesn't have to wear a helmet herself, with the handy excuse that it interferes with her psi abilities. Between them they give us the tired old wardog and the 21 year old rookie on the roads for the first time, and you sympathise with the life of a Mega Town Judge.Some folks have criticized the apparent similarities between Dredd and the newest movie The Raid: Redemption, in which Indonesian cops storm a turret block and much slash sockey ensues. To be honest, I was a tiny worried myself, but having seen both movies I can happily confirm that they are nothing alike. Whilst The Raid is a cute intense martial arts movie which is rather dull between wars (although the wars are awesome), Dredd is a tight movie all the method through, with the plot more than an excuse to go from war to fight.In conclusion, I can heartily suggest this film, in situation you hadn't guessed. It's sort of like a cross between Robocop and Die Hard, all moderned up and with better music. It's no coincidence that those are two of the most kick ass action movies ever, and Dredd borrows from the best, although as Robocop stole from Dredd in the first zone it's more like recovering pinched property. The 3D is now worth shelling out for, and there are some pretty sequences where it comes into it's own, whilst the movie itself is gritty and dirty, although not without a several lighter moments amidst the carnage. The humour in Dredd's comic strips comes from the town around him rather than his own actions, and here's hoping we'll see Alex Garland penning a sequel that allows us to wander through Dredd's world. Quite simply a superior action film, and whilst it's no masterpiece (then again, it's not supposed to be) it's as nice as fanatics should ever have hoped. Here's to the sequels…
