Hard R, ultra-violent. Dredd is judge, jury, and executioner in a hideous dystopian future. Dredd is incorruptible and relentless. An action movie that doesn’t pull any punches. Not an intellectual romp, just action.

Don't allow yourself to be put off by the 90's Stallone movie, this movie has very little in common with it. In fact, this version is a much better reflection of the source material, the Judge Dredd and 2000AD comics. Dredd is a solid dystopian sci-fi action movie that works best if you don't go in expecting anything. Be warned, the movie is less about Dredd himself than it is his partner, Judge Anderson, and the residents of Peach Trees. Dredd is there to keep the story moving and the bullets flying.

Those of us that were disappointed that a sequel was never made can check youtube for the animated miniseries followup 'Judge Dredd: Superfiend', done by Dredd's Executive Producer Adi Shankar.

Incredibly entertaining action film, follows its source material pretty well and very well produced.
It tries to do that bottle episode format that tv shows make use of, ie closed circumstances, which involves less settings and more focus on a short term scenario, without having to introduce new elements too often.
Also, a song from Matt Berry's Snuff Box is briefly heard in a scene, and that is about as good as it gets for your obscure references. I mean, I guess Judge Dredd is british and Snuff Box is british.

Despite being given powers of judge, jury, and executioner, the Judges are "losing control of the city" because of...reasons. But Dredd is on the case. I wasn't in a good mood for this film, and maybe didn't give it a fair chance, which is why I didn't rate it. I have no liking for vigilante films, and Dredd has a combination of sadism and prudery characteristic of the genre. For example, three men are skinned alive, and thrown off a building -- but still have their pants on, Whew! In fairness, it is also witty, well designed, well shot, and has some of the tense action of films like The Raid. Most fans of action or the comic will enjoy it, but for now, I couldn't finish it.

Good adaptation of the comic book " Judge Dredd " ( from 2000 AD )- although it doesn't maintain the humor evident throughout the comic- it is a competent action film in it's own right ( certainly better than the Sylvester Stallone version of Dredd ).

If you haven't seen this film, you're doing something wrong. Best 80's movie to come out in 2012.

Stellar. Just great great great. What a nice surprise. An action movie to rival the original Robocop. I loved not seeing the main characters face the whole time. Who takes such a role? And special effects were original.

Except for a few (witty) nods at the previous version, this movie is a stand alone product. It doesn't clone the original, and it doesn't try too hard to not be it. The updated CGI and a new take on what the future will look like are great. There was actually acting in this one (sorry Sly fans, but he cant' act) and I could understand the dialogue without close captions. It was actually fun to watch--twice.

Much better then I thought, Rotten Tomatoes gave it a 7 and I can see why. No comparison to the Stallone Dredd. Gritty, action packed, a allegory in ways of the future of man if we don't change. In a bleak and pointless future there are the Judges, and among them the greatest Judge Dredd kicks ass and takes no names. Great movie, highly recommended to anyone who likes a solid action film.

Violence: Bodies being thrown from the 1000th floor and landing on the ground looking like something you get out of a can of Campbell’s tomato soup! LOTS of violence and blood.
