Synopsis
A feared urban cop takes on a vicious city drug dealer in a futuristic metropolis as director Pete Travis (VANTAGE POINT) and screenwriter Alex Garland (28 DAYS LATER, SUNSHINE) team to bring iconic 2000A.D. lawman Judge Dredd to the big screen. In the future, much of North America has been poisoned by radiation. The sprawling urban jungle Mega City One stretches from Boston to Washington D.C., and in order to keep the growing criminal element in check, police enforcers called "Judges" have been given the power of judge, jury, and executioner. Judge Dredd (Karl Urban) is the most feared of them all, delivering death sentences with impunity as he fights to rid the streets of "Slo-Mo" -- a powerful new drug that alters its user's perception of time. In the process of training psychic rookie Cassandra Anderson (Olivia Thirlby), Dredd receives a report of an incident in a sprawling criminal stronghold ruled by fearsome drug lord Ma-Ma (Lena Headey), and ventures in to investigate. Upon learning that one of her top men has been captured by Dredd shortly thereafter, an enraged Ma-Ma seizes control of her massive 200-story complex, launching an all-out war against the Judges as Dredd and Cassandra find themselves trapped in the belly of the beast.

Movie Critics
Box Office
3 stars out of 5 -- "[T]he stylish sci-fi film makes some eye-popping and unexpected choices that add up to one heck of a fun film."
Kate Erbland (15 Sep 2012, )
Entertainment Weekly
"Director of photography Anthony Dod Mantle creates an evocative dirty-neon future world." -- Grade: B+
Entertainment Weekly Staff (28 Sep 2012, )
Hollywood Reporter
"[The movie] constantly impresses on a visual level, with a gritty style more akin to cult hits like DISTRICT 9 or 28 DAYS LATER than to standard Hollywood comic-book blockbusters."
Stephen Dalton (2 Sep 2012, )
Sight and Sound
"The film eschews the customary origin story in favour of immersion. We don't know why Dredd is as he is, nor why Mega-City One is as it is, and it's something of a relief..."
Henry K. Miller (1 Oct 2012, )
Total Film
3 stars out of 5 -- "DREDD gets to lean hard on the slo-mo button, letting blood, water droplets and broken glass shiver beautifully in stereoscopic space."
Jonathan Crocker (1 Oct 2012, )

Reviewed by on

I like to think Dredd as a movie falls into two categories. The first is a comic book adaptation that works, and the second is realistic science fiction, like District 9.

Unlike the original Judge Dredd movie, which I sometimes watch to remind myself there are better things out there, Dredd is a well-paced, well-written movie with just the right amount of anything. Any fan of the comics or action movies should not only be watching Dredd, but owning it as well.
