A very simple premise. Lots of action, blood and some humor. Solid acting.
Stays truer than most adaptations to the source material. A trillion times better than Stallone's crap version. Extremely visual--perfect for 3D. I think it lacked great marketing. I'd have loved to have seen a trilogy out of this. It's actually a very good film.

No story, no plot, no character depth. Judge Dredd is all character. This movie did little justice to the books. Karl Urban was good in his part but the rest of the film was loud, gratuitous and boring. Best of both worlds would be Urban and Stallone switch places.

This film is great for action and effects. Although not particularly plot driven, the film doesn't take itself too seriously and is neither preachy nor cheesy. If you're looking for a great message of some sort, or thought-provoking ideas, don't watch it, but otherwise it's an awesome film.

I was unprepared for how gory it was. Violence is once thing, but tons of blood splatter and guts, gets a little old (especially in 3D). Otherwise the movie was good and I enjoyed it. Definitely earned its R rating (please don't bring your kids to this one until you've seen it first).

I enjoyed Dredd 3D. The 3D effects were good. There was more blood and gore than I expected but it was good. I was glad the storyline was different from the S.Stallone's Judge Dredd in 1995. Karl Urban was good. I think his brooding and anger was more evident than Stallone's character. So if you've seen the 1995 version of Judge Dredd and think Dredd 3D will be similar, you're wrong. Dredd 3D is more darker, serious, and doesn't have the comic scenes of Judge Dredd provided by Rob Schneider. Go See It!!!
