Dredd is your typical action, shoot-em-up movie with a little dystopian science fiction thrown in. The characters are pretty well developed and easy to like. That mixed with the unoriginal yet still interesting plot kept me in my seat. The actors they pulled into the film certainly aided the films likeability, but even with Dredd's helmet on through the movie (certainly a plus with source material fans), the one-dimensional acting Karl Urban gave was nothing less of disappointing. "Serious frown" should not have been his only emotion. The writing offers some nuances of humor with the violence, aggression, and action, but not enough for non-action fans to enjoy. If action is your thing, it's worth a watch.

Obviously the film is simply about the cops in the world of chaos dominated by drug dealers. This film is cool though, that SLO-MO substance is a killer, and the voice-activated guns is perfect for a dramatic and heroic action scenes, like you whisper the kind of shot you want and boom, you kill them all!

Another video game feel film

Directed by Pete Travis

Starring Karl Urban, Lena Headey and Olivia Thirlby

2/4

A futuristic world is filled with chaos. Here comes Pete Travis who brings in the lawmaker and his man the Dredd (Karl Urban) The Judges decide what is to be done to control the chaos in the city. To the trouble there is a narcotic leader called as Ma-Ma (played by Lena Headey). She orders chaos and bring the judges down. But Dredd is there for the judgement day. A new rookie called Anderson (Olivia Thirlby) helps Dredd go through levels to reach Ma-Ma. A fascinating question in my mind is whether Dredd is a futuristic video game where characters go level by level. Well the narcotic action called the slo-mo does some neat job. I even enjoyed the slow motion shoot outs in the film. But somewhere, I cou...

"Dredd" by Yojimbo

Hollywood takes a second stab at bringing the faceless, fascistic law giver to the big screen after Sylvester Stallone's badly misjudged outing in 1995. In fact the previous attempt wasn't a complete failure; it captured the feel of the comic strip quite well, with some excellent production design and well orchestrated set pieces. The problem was that the script completely missed the point of the character. Dredd NEVER removes his helmet and most certainly would not tolerate the dubious comic "talents" of Rob Schneider any more than I would. At least the new interpretation gets the first part right and Karl Urban's jutting, bestubbled jaw certainly looks the part as does the grimy, Mad Maxified version of the uniform and artillery. Unfortunately, once more the writer has woefully missed t...

Better then the original but that didnt take much!

Well i know how much i loathed the original so i was very skeptical when i started to watch the reboot. Director Pete Travis must've been one of those people who was intrigued by the Stallone original as i thought if i were a director Judge Dredd would've been the last movie i would re-do. Anyhow the reboot has some qualities that make it superior although the storylinbe in my mind remains dead. Good eye candy i will admit this time round however the acting is 'B' level. And if you love films with constant gratituitis graphic violence then this is definatly for you. Storyline this time around has the action taking place in the far future 2070 as a new drug named 'Slo-mo' has gripped it's citizens and the head gang of 'The Cursed Earth' (Formally the States) lead by their vicious leade...

I'd say this will get a low, but fair, box office return due to it's lack of mainstream appeal.  I plan on seeing it opening weekend.  My interest has peaked, thanks to universally positive reviews and some awesome clips and trailers.

So predictions on this coming out - Better or Worse Box Office than Total Recall?

Total Recall was a letdown for sure, but I can't see this doing better. My vote is for worse.

I used to collect the Jugde Dredd comics when I was younger, and if this new movie stay true to the dark athmosphere and over the top violence I think this will be a very entertaining movie. I am at least looking forward to this.

I've watched the trailer and have seen a short clip of action.  My initial thoughts have changed.  I'm looking forward to this movie now.  I still don't believe that it will be a 'good' movie, but it looks like it could be some good gory action filled fun.  Emphasis on GORY.  Also, it looks like the filmmakers have taken full advantage of the 'in-your-face' 3D, which is the only 3D I like.

I don't have any doubts that this will be a bad movie, but for some reason I still have a very small desire to see it.
