Word play on dread aside, this one leaves little to the imagination in the way of gruesome violence. The visuals are stunning but rely far too heavily on a central effect, used extensively throughout the production. In time, it becomes tedious. Can't say this is an improvement on the original. Frankly, they're equally bad. Still, if one is starved for action heroes, albeit hard to imagine, perhaps they'll find something interesting about the Dredd character. The sets and effects are interesting, but nothing new. The play is weak and the performances aren't strong either. On a weekend with about five major film releases, you'll probably find something better to see and in a pinch, catch this on discount night. You'll be glad you did.

After reading how this movie got cheated on Reddit, we went to see it. I agree that the marketing didn't do the movie any favors, it's much, much better than you would expect. A really interesting storyline and engaging characters. It is a bit slow in a few parts, where you wish the action would go a bit faster, but overall solid, action packed, and great story.

Well let me begin with ladies, the weak of heart and those who really don't like action with lots of gore this movie IS NOT FOR YOU. This is one of the most male friendly movies I have seen in a long time. This movie is full of action and totally unbiased violent gore!! For a man this is a must see Saturday afternoon I want to get my mind blown with some visual effects type of movie. Karl Urban rocked the part of Dredd..... MUST GO! If you know a girl that digs action and gore, this would be an ideal date movie.......haha

This is the most disgusting movie I've ever seen. I don't like this kind of movies. It's extremely bloody, violent, and disgusting. The only reason I wanted to watch this is because I want to see its beautiful slow motion effects, but these effects just used at the wrong places, well for me. I couldn't stand to watch people's eyes and guts being blown out in slow motions, so I left without seeing half the movie. But if you can stand these kind of bloody scenes. This is a great and "beautiful" movie for you. But for me, it's a NO movie.

and totally no storyline. Not even close to up to par with the original Judge Dredd which was played well by Stallone. Just explosions and shoot ‘em ups and action. So if you don’t mind no story line but like a lot of mindless action this is the one for you.
