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.

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!

This movie was one of the best movies I've ever seen! It kept me at the edge of my seat from the beginning until the end, so i reccomend it to anyone who likes action movies 100%.

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.

I was particularly mad leaving this film. Not at it. But at myself. I had already conceded on the fact that I wouldn't be needing to see this in 3D. But don't make the same mistake I did. Go watch this one with the funny glasses. This is one of those that doesn't exploit 3D for the sake of the thing. I can see how it would actually work well. The visuals are undeniably cool. And it's obvious much preparation went in its delivery.
I am sadly old enough to compare this one to the original one with Arnold. And it is by far a better narrative piece. Sure, back then it was the bells and whistles of the scifi angle, the Sharon Stone, and the Arnold bit. So we were all pretty well distracted. But now that time has passed... Screw that one. This one has testicles.
