This film is considered by many to be the first 2000 AD film. It is based on a short in the comic that takes place just after the Cursed Earth story in the Judge Dredd universe. Having been released in 1990 you will not see much in the way of computer graphics for special effects except for that of computer screens and IR displays. Most of the film used physical props for all of the special effects as well as models. It is amazing what film makers were able to do without having to rely on a computer. Even though the film is gritty and at times gory you really do not see the budget constraints that it was under. It was made for under 1 Million Pounds.
