I've been disappointed before. The Stallone version of the '90s failed this test on both counts. In fact, the only thing that movie got right was a few beautifully rendered hyper dense scenic shots of Mega City one. This film didn't have those shots. In fact, the scenic shots of the city didn't seem that dense at all...yeah there were tall building....but spaced far apart. It seemed almost like a quaint small city trying to be a big one at the edge of a dessert. That is...until we are taken inside the city.
This is one of the real coups the film pulls over on us. A few quick shots of the area around these mega blocks (big...REALLY big...More then twice the size of the Twin Towers big) reveal some familiar (especially if you are a New Yorker) buildings that frankly look like kids toys in comparison. When we are informed that the city has over 800 million people covering a land mass that stretches from Boston to DC, you have to intake air when you realize the true scale of the shots looking at the city from the dessert.
We are quickly given a day in a life type story focusing on two characters who have an importent yet oddly impotent job in the city. To maintain order. And it doesn't take too long until we realize how futile that task is in a city so enormous.Read more ›
Excellent movie for the budget. The spirit of Dredd is here in spades. It is not perfect but bloody imaginative.
First the camera work is fantastic. This is really a film to see in 3D. Not because of fancy Hollywood CGI but because of brilliant artistic imagery.
MegaCity looks European in the visuals and vistas but maybe for Americans the vans and cars just look weird. So it works!
Pete Travis' direction is solid and Alex Garland's script is informed and funny. Would loved to have heard Dredd say "Drokk" just once!
Karl Urban is Dredd. He needs to be warmed too but he plays the part very well. Olivia Thirlby is also excellent as Anderson. Lena Headey is very convincing in her Motherly role.
I do hope this becomes a franchise. Dredd is as important as Bond. Show him some respect.
You can tell the director of this film really cared about the project. I felt his heart and soul within every composition and frame. Before this film I use to be anti-3D but after I saw this, it completely changed the game for me, yes even more than "avatar" did. This was the first time I felt that the only way to experience this film was in 3d. even though this film failed at the box office, i feel as if i was part of something special because i was one of the few who saw it in 3d at the theaters. All those people who are going to rent it or buy it on DVD/blu ray will be missing half the experience in my opinion. Too bad for you guys!! And if there ever was a movie that would consider me to covert my home theater into 3d, it is this one.
The way the film makers utilized slow motion was the best I have ever seen since the "Matrix", maybe even better. Lately I've hated the way recent films have used slow mo, just for the sake of it (Sherlock Holmes) but Dredd actually uses it to engross the audience further into the story. I loved the way the cinematography switched up during these scenes, making the drug scenes feel surreal and beautiful at the same time. That, accompanied with the amazing score, really made me feel like i was on a wild thrill ride.Read more ›
On another level it's brilliant because it's an action movie with four distinct and interesting female characters (none of which are a love interest) and that's cool.
In a world with three comic book movies a season this one stands out and deserves attention. And a sequel. And a franchise.
So go watch it.

I liked this version more than Arnold's Dredd, full of action and Dredd was true to the comic version.Published 2 days ago by Greg Sullivan
Ok, I was bored-very bored when I decided to watch this movie. I didn't expect much since I knew this and the version with Stallone were take-off's of a comic book series. Read morePublished 7 days ago by C. Norman

Aside from the (admittedly well done) CGI blood 'squib' effects, a perfect homage to the straightforward, hardcore, no-holds-barred action films of the 80'sPublished 11 days ago by Andrew
This is one movie that should be either turned into a sequel or a series. The monotone, grizzly Dredd played by Karl Urban just works. Read morePublished 14 days ago by Curtis
