Not a big fan of the 90's Judge Dredd movie with Sly Stalone, but was blow away by how good this one was. Bare bones action film, with an outstanding performance from Karl Urban. I loved the old Eagle Comics series in the 80's and this movie NAILS IT! So sad it hasn't done better, because we deserve a sequel to this movie. Hopefully it will do well overseas and find a second life here in states in dvd/blu ray market...fingers crossed.

Unbelievable! The dark Judge originally from Eagle Comics has truly arrived! Fabulous adaptation from the comic books. Stallone is NOT judge Dredd. You should never ever see his face. Karl Urban was terrific! I hope that they will plan for a sequel. Our society is turning into that movie's background. One day its citizens will be Judged!

True to form to the style and intent of the Judge Dredd anthology. Not for children nor the faint of heart. Pleasantly BRUTAL for the avid JD fan. Story line is average however, this version of the JD film is action packed with good directing, great scenes and 3D effects were brilliant and pioneering. Scenes and camera angles are done very well. All in all, a great ride.

I loved it!!!! It was wonderful. I think they did a great job with the story. No cheesy body armor like the 1st. The action, special effects, & even the 3D was very well done. Yes it does rate the rated R but how they shot it kept the gore from being so shocking. And what can I say about Karl Urban. Such a hotty while playing a bad***!!!!!!

I'm glad I went to see this movie with an open mind. I loved the original Judge Dredd and this was NOTHING like it.
I really enjoyed Karl Urban in the role of Dredd, but I really like him.
The plot itself just wasn't there. It had some much potential at so many different times, it just never reached it.
*SPOILER* Pretty much a rookie judge and Dredd get trapped in a building where all the gang members are trying to kill them. That's it... there isn't much else to the plot. There is shooting up of the bad guys but even that wasn't out of this world.
My suggestion would be to wait until it comes out on DVD and rent it, there just wasn't enough there to spend the money on going to the theater.
