It’s been 10 years since Karl Urban kept his mask on for the entire film, but the questions that this story about police acting as judge, jury, and executioner raises continue to be relevant today. We talk about the movie, the moral issues it raises, and how Karl Urban’s grunting paved the way for Pedro Pascal’s silent acting in The Mandalorian.

Riki Hayashi and Matthew Fox explore the ethical questions from the stories geeks love—superheroes, sci-fi, anime, fantasy, video games, and so much more.
