80s Mainstream is now Cult Classic

Dredd is a 80s action movie at heart, full of gory violence and clever one-liners, with a modern tone, special effects, and music. This movie is in the same vein as Rambo, RoboCop (the original), and The Terminator; a well written and well acted creative story filled with intense violence. Amazingly, despite this movie's strong reviews and the best 3D that I've ever seen, it has done exceptionally poorly in the theaters. I can only speculate that modern audiences aren't looking for violent action movies anymore. However, if you enjoy violent action movies or 80s action movies, you'll almost certainly love this one.
