Surprisingly Awesome.

I agree with the other reviewers- it's a tight little film. It reminds me of Terminator One. Too bad Stallone was in Dredd Two- that would kill off any franchise.
Grimness, grit, attitude; all here. Pity about the slow-motion murders tho- glamourized violence is porn, and the fact that the whole movie is shot in industrial corridors gets a bit *too* real.

This is one of the best films ever made! It's flow and tempo are perfect. The story is concise. The soundtrack is brilliant. The dialogue is classic Dredd (Karl Urban, a big Judge Dredd fan, cut down some of the lines to be more Dredd like). The actors were all perfect in their roles. When I watched this the first time, I didn't realize it was Urban as Dredd, he acted it perfectly (which is difficult under a helmet).

Yes, the movie is gory and gritty, but never gratuitously so. It's reflective of the reality they are trying to portray.

Watched this again, and again, and again.

"Yeah."

I was skeptical before I watched this movie. I never read the comics or watched the original movie (can't really stand Slyvester Stallone). I also wasn't sure what to think about Karl Urban. I enjoyed him in the Star Trek movies but wasn't sure about him solo. I really liked him. Even though you can't see his face (because of his helmet), he does an exceptional job of using his tone to set the mood. Lena Headey was my favorite part. She knows how to get an audience to hate her (practice from GoT as Cersei Baratheon lol). Great cast, writing, storyline, brutal violence and really cool slo-mo scenes. A must watch for fans of the original/comics or sci-fi/superhero fans.

I like my action movies like I like my whiskey and hamburgers, cheap, potent and bloody. I wasn't expecting much from this version of the long-running comic book character (it was made into a campy movie with Sylvester Stallone in the 90s), but this was quite entertaining , a super violent, wall to wall dystopian action movie with some cool fx and good performances. Kiwi Karl Urban, best known as Bones from the new "Star Trek" movies, plays Dredd and never takes his helmet off, the usually indie Olivia Thrilby is his rookie partner and Lena Headey from "Game of Thrones" is the sadistic villain. Screenplay by Alex Garland, who wrote "The Beach" and "28 Days Later."

There's a very old saying "that the best things in life are free." That may be true for some, but for others it's the "unexpected." I say this because i called my friend and asked her if she wanted to see the movie Dredd with me and she immediately said i already saw the Stallone movie on 42nd street years ago and it was kind of corny. I told her it was an updated version and i was buying Cuban sandwiches. One hour later, we were sitting on my futon watching the movie on my HOMETHEATER!. Here's the unexpected part. The audio is "sound freak approved!" My HOMETHEATER made me very proud to own it as my apartment sound as if there was a war going on inside. And the visuals were very graphic, showing bullets tearing through flesh in slow motion and had my friend grabbing my arm several times. And let us not forget those HUGE MINI GUNS!!!!!!!!! WOW!!!!!!!! My friend actually applauded during that scene. That's a first! This film is definately a part of my collection. I'm giving this ultra violent, extremely graphic movie 4 thumbs up and 5 stars!!!!! HUH??!!! YES, five stars. For excellent sound, serious visuals that had my friend grabbing my arm, A decent story, me enjoying the moment watching my friend freak out and saying several times "he looks so serious" for the actor who played Dredd, and MAMA!!!! She was vicious!!!!!!!!!!!!! Did Dreed smile one time? A large order of chicken fingers and french fries with coke.

A nice approach to the Dredd series. Story line has you thinking "oh S@#)$#$*#%".

Violent and bloody. Corn syrup costs were high on a few occasions.

Dredd is serious and you never see his face. This was probably to avoid people being sad that Stallone didn't reprise his role.

Worth the watch.

not a patch on the Stallone film. shows promise for further installments but its called DREDD for a reason - this was too much about the woman rather than dredd & beinbg done all inside one building made it a bit boring. does show promise for follow-upstho if they get it right rate it c+

Definitely not a remake of Stalone’s movie (which was also based upon the same comic books), this is one of the worse movies I’ve tried to watch this year. Urban, an actor I like, is ridiculous trying to emulate Stallone; total failure. Although I’m not that squeamish when it comes to violence/blood (and didn’t expect a “love fest”), the gross factor is so high it is the worse I’ve ever seen: bodies turned into blobs of mushed flesh, disgusting. Then there is the skinny little girl playing the macho and beating the heck out of guys twice her size. Really? I’m sorry, but if you are a girl and have a brother, try to fight him: even if he’s younger, he’ll most likely beat you. A message to movie makers: women are NOT stronger than men, sorry! So, watch the original instead of this sickening blood and gore fest.

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.
