The future America is an irradiated waste land. On its East Coast, running from Boston to Washington DC, lies Mega City One - a vast, violent metropolis where criminals rule the chaotic streets. The only force of order lies with the urban cops called "Judges" who possess the combined powers of judge, jury and instant executioner. Known and feared throughout the city, Dredd is the ultimate Judge, challenged with ridding the city of its latest scourge - a dangerous drug epidemic that has users of "Slo-Mo" experiencing reality at a fraction of its normal speed. During a routine day on the job, Dredd is assigned to train and evaluate Cassandra Anderson, a rookie with powerful psychic abilities thanks to a genetic mutation. A heinous crime calls them to a neighborhood where fellow Judges rarely dare to venture - a 200 storey vertical slum controlled by prostitute turned drug lord Ma-Ma and her ruthless clan...

 Hands down the best genre film of 2012

| | See all SavalasRocks's reviews (21)

After a summer of generally mediocre and unremarkable blockbusters, it took a mid-budget, independent, comic book adaptation to generate any excitement.
And what an exhilarating and exciting movie Dredd turned out to be-more than living up to its classic comic book source material, no mean feat in itself.
Dredd (2012) gets everything right that the 1995 movie iteration of the character got so spectacularly wrong.
Dredd is a refreshingly adult piece of filmmaking-brutal, dark and with a razor sharp vein of black humour running through it and is pretty much the opposite of what Hollywood churns out today.
Dredd is old school filmmaking at its best and reminiscent of many of the classic 80's dystopian sci-fi movies of the past, such as Mad Max II and Escape From New York, and is really not to be missed by fans of such films.
The performances are uniformly excellent. Karl Urban perfectly embodies the cold, almost machine like character of Judge Dredd and Urban is matched by his co-star, Olivia Thirlby, who gives a remarkably committed performance, as rookie Judge Anderson.
Your protagonists are only as good as your antagonist. And luckily with Lena Headey, playing Ma-Ma, they have their equal as she depicts a brutally ruthless individual, that is also a strangely sympathetic one. Not an easy juggling act to pull off.
The film is visually striking with an effective (read subtle) use of 3D that never overshadows what is effectively a high octane and sharply written character study from director Peter Travis and writer Alex Garland.
If, like me, you miss the days when films weren't just an excuse for increasingly overblown and redundant uses of CGI and in service of an actor's ego, at the expense of a compelling narrative, then Dredd is the film for you and should be ordered without hesitation.

Very dark and gritty, true to the comics. Much better than Stallone's portrayal of Dredd!! Best film I have seen for a while and looking forward to buying it which I can't really say much these days as everything seems to be much the manufactured run of the mill Hollywood churned out rubbish! This movie really hits home with action and and the dark gritty feel which is consistant throughout the film, keeping it's integrity in tact! Excellent movie!!

 Best film ive seen in years

I saw this film in the cinema and it was magnificent, best film ive seen in years and easily launches itself into my sci-fi top 5 with the likes of Aliens and Bladerunner. I have pre-ordered it now and await its release with baited breath. As a fan of the 2000AD comics when i was a kid this truly does the comic strip justice and so much more than the 1995 Stallone version which was ok but no were near as dark, gritty and tough as this one. Full marks,10/10, i love it and pray there will be sequels in the future.

 Sleeper hit ?

Got dragged to the cinema by my daughter with low expectations: the movie hasn't had much press, or many reviews.
It's a fantastic action film, with a strong showing by Urban as Dredd and a fantastic showing by Thirlby, who was written off long before the film was released. The main baddy (Headey) deserved more charecterisation, but overall Dredd is pretty much my surprise hit of the year.
Now if only more people could be convinced to see it, we could get a sequel.

 THIS is how to make a DREDD movie!

DREDD is one of the best films of 2012, and goes straight into my Top Five Sci-Fi Movies Ever.

A 2000AD reader in years past, I always enjoyed Dredd, and liked the Stallone movie too. But Karl Urban simply makes a far better Dredd - he has the gravely voice, he keeps the helmet and the scowl on, and the uniform is just great to look at. (The Judge helmets are much more authentic in this film version, which greatly adds to the appeal).

DREDD is a far more contained film than the Stallone version too, which probably tried to do too much. Confining this film to fewer locations really helps viewers to identify with the main characters more, as they are given far more screen time. Mega City One is far more like in the older 2000AD stories, with less flying traffic and the decaying old world buildings being much more evident.

I especially liked Olivia Thirlby, who looks, sounds and acts the part of Cassandra Anderson to perfection. She is a rookie in the film, assigned to Dredd for an assessment day, and like in the comics, she remains for the most part sans helmet, to extend her psychic abilities.

The film justifies its 18 certificate through graphic, bloody violence and expletives: no Drokk! Yelled here. Yet such is the nature of the world this version of Judge Dredd lives in, and this excellent film really does do the comic hero proud!

I know this film was made as the first part of a planned trilogy, and it would be rough justice indeed if parts two and three were never filmed.
