Judge Dredd (1995, dir. Danny Cannon)

Dredd is framed in a revenge conspiracy and loses his Judge status. Patchy first attempt at the iconic 2000AD character, with twice as many daft ideas as good ones. Some striking moments, though, and some still-impressive design and effects work.

Tomboy (AKA Tomboy: A Revenger’s Tale / The Assignment / (Re) Assignment) (2016, dir. Walter Hill)

A hitman is subjected to forced gender reassignment. A messy hotchpotch of bad taste, worse gender politics, and a standard pulpy noir payback yarn. Tomboy is never uninteresting, but not always for the right genre reasons. A future cult beckons.
