Go see it! It was a great movie and i really enjoyed spending two hours watching this flick. I love the whole futurastic theme to it, and it had plenty of high flying action to keep everyone entertained. Karl Urban plays the one and only judge Dredd, and he did not dissapoint. If you enjoyed the original, you will love this one. Dredd and his new partner in crime must battle a ruthless woman who is hell bent on taking over the city with a new mind altering drug. Dredd will not stop for anyone, and will do everything in his power to take this woman down. Go check it out, one of the best movies i have seen. Fans of "Total Recall" will love "Dredd" !!!! Fun times for all. Not for kids with all the blood and language.

This movie doesn't mess around. It provides just enough plot and character development to contextualize the dizzying degree of ultraviolence and is a true spectacle of murderous proportions! Visuals were great too! I highly recommend this if you are looking for a no frills popcorn movie.

We really enjoyed viewing the movie despite the fact that the plot was pretty predictable. It entertained me for an hour and a half so it did what it was supposed to dol
My one complaint, the special effects were a little too visceral for my taste. I believe those effects could have been taken out of the movie and it would still be just as enjoyable.

I don't normally review films, and had no intention of seeing Dredd in the theater, but after randomly seeing it this weekend I was very impressed. I am a comic book reader, but HAVE NEVER READ Judge Dredd comics before. I saw the 1995 film a long time ago, but was never interested enough in it to even remotely care about this reboot of the franchise. However, it was very stylish. Good soundtrack. Good action. Lots of style (a few times maybe excessive). I was very entertained and would like to see future sequels.

I've always been a fan of the Judge Dredd Comics and sagas so I was going to see this movie regardless. I was pleasantly surprised that it was much better than I expected. I've seen all the comic based movies to date and have disappointed and how "G" rated they kept the stories. Even the original Judge Dredd was very "G" rated. Not this one! This movie shows exactly what Judge Dredd is, Judge, Jury, and Executioner. There is a good amount of blood and violence and pretty graphic at times. I found that a well match to this story. The acting wasn't bad but it wasn't great. I do feel, like all movies lately, that the story felt a bit rushed. Kinda like they did a bit too much editing to keep the movie within a time limit. Overall, if you are a Judge Dredd fan, you will probably like this movie. If you are looking for an action movie to kill some time with, give it a shot. If you don't like blood or violence then you probably won't like this movie. Give it a shot
