Just another day in the Big Meg, and another thousand deaths.
Citizens are dry-diving out of hab-blocks, piling up on the
interways... as usual. But deep down below the urban sprawl,
people are being horribly slaughtered in a city-wide snuff-fix!
The Killing Zone's audience share is sky-high - and with the
Judges unable to stop these deadly games, the Justice Department's
reputation is at an all-time low. For Joe Dredd, this is an

stories. While the other two stories were well above average,
The Killing Zone stands out as a much better production.

time around she brings us Instant Death Alerts - which warn
Mega-City residents on the dangers of poisoned water and increase

of the Killing Zone and both John Wadmore and Holly Chant
turn in great performances as an undercover Judge and a rebellious
Psi Cop respectively. And Toby Longworth's Dredd even seems
better (if that's possible) than previous instalments.
only grumble is that the ending comes unexpectedly and seems
a little on the rushed side - although having said that it
is an original ending and will have you wanting for more.
