Throwback to classic Ultra Violent Films from the 1980s
Dredd was the complete package from ultra violence (see Terminator, Robocop, etc) and cheesy one liners. Be warned, there are some extremely graphic imagery, most of it is hyper stylized to fit the comic book movie style guide, but a bloodbath nonetheless. The premise is simple, and you get what you know you'll see, nothing more, nothing less. They knew the film they were making and, as it is not a "hollywood" film (made outside of the country and Lionsgate brought it to the States), the filmmakers didn't try to make it anymore than it needed to be. If you are one who things that action movies today are tame compared to those of yesteryear, you must take it upon yourself to see Dredd. Go see it (we saw it 2D), enjoy the splatter, have your stomach turn sour, and laugh at the absurdity of it all.
