Pretty good "re-boot"...the 3D is an important element in some of the scenes, so if you want the full effect, you should see it that way.
Good characters, pretty good dialogue with a few real "zinger" lines...
Some unusual special effects.
Glad I went.
I wouldn't take the kids...the violence is pretty graphic, and there's a lot of it.

Another remake that tries to bring more technology to the screen. The Dredd character was never revealed as a tangible human being, i.e. you could see his face. Theater was only half full and with the exception of one scene, there did not seem to be a lot of interest. Karl Urban was decent as an actor, but more humanity in the character would have started to make it interesting. Would not every rent it or go again.

Great movie, its a shame it had to go up against end of watch. I'm sure that as with myself, it was a coin toss between the two. Luckily Dredd won last week's coin flip. Now its EOW vs. Looper. My only disappointment with the film is that I did not see it in 3D and this looks as though it wasn't supposed to be viewed any other way. Do yourself a favor, skip the MB like stuff and see this film.

Im an action movie junky! I never believe what critics say about my movies. However the critics liked this movie. My first red flag! lol Critics are so use to watching movie after movie I think that anything different, or out of place or weird will get them to like it. Basically from an Artistic standpoint the super slow motion is this movie was kind of cool. Take a touch of the matrix slow motion, then add a touch of CSI internal camera tricks then slow it down 10 more times and make it 3D. It tood 10 minutes to watch a lady spill milk or something. Kind of cool to see each drop move in 3D really slow. It was also interesting to see bullets go through a face really slow. It wasnt boring but it did have that B-rated take turns acting feel to it with every scene making you think you have seen this before. Plenty of blood, plenty of shooting. kind of like watching someone play a video game of a guy going through a building shooting everything that moves. Hoping Resident evil is better!
