Dredd:3D

I had mixed feelings about the movie Judge Dredd, first because the title Judge was left off. The idea of a combo-platter judge/jury executioner who uses authorized lawlessness is different. The acting was mediocre, because the actors seemed burnt out. The lines were, on a scale of 1 to 10, 5.5 and that's being nice. What I took with me was judge was left out of the title, as if those who decided on just Dredd were running away from a fact of life. The law wins, but does damage on the clan, and lets the hacker go who putt the cop-judges in danger. Without R& D, I bet this doesn't match up as close to as it could with the comic book character of old. The women judges have their helmets off, and at least one neutral party is shot. To title it Dredd, it didn't focus on who's underneath that helmet, just the fact that he read convictions and shot people. Lots of blood that didn't look real, and 3D scenes that were of minimal impact. Surely, Follywood can do better!!!!

Surprisingly Good

I went to go see this movie as an "entertaining bad-film", but it genuinely shocked me at how good it was. Great cinematics, decent enough plot, amazing visuals. There are only two scenes where I laughed at the gimmicky lines which are nods to the original film. Go see it!

The Judge...

The cinematography was great...I certainly hope we aren't headed for such an existence. Also, I wouldn't bring any young kids to see this one. ...still not sure why Everything is in 3D!

But not great. Okay, it's really good. At best I'd give it a 7.5, maybe an 8/10. There wasn't that much that really stood out to me. The 3d made one or two scenes stand out, but ultimately, I think you're better off seeing the 2d version, if it's available.

Strong action, weak storyline

No question that the action was entertaining, even if the slow motion effects became tired and repetitive. Major complaint is the storyline, or lack thereof, that wasted a good cast and an opportunity to reintroduce Dredd and the surrounding characters. The plot seemed like it was written for a first person shooter video game, and played out accordingly. Overall, save the money on a theater viewing and wait for home release or inclusion in your cable package.
