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.

I thought it was going to be a high res version of some sci-fi channel crap, but I was blown away! It wasn't cheesy, it's wasn't bland, or too brainless killing-ish. It was solid, the characters were good, the plot held water, and the action was superb.
I honest thought this would royally suck, but was very very happily surprised!

Compared to the 1995 film, this one takes the cake. Do not be mislead by the trailer, this movie is a silent hit. I have a feeling this film will be a cult classic for 2012. Great performances by Karl Urban and Olivia Thirlby. The movie focuses on both characters in great detail and the movie commits truely toward the orginal 2000 AD comics. Though the movie does not include as much satire from the comic it is nothing like it's predcessor where it was flashy and campy. This movie is just nails it! I highly recommend fans and non fans to watch this movie, the 3D is totally worth the trip, even though I am not a fan and it is costly. This movie makes it totally worth it. Watch it! It's the LAW!

Finally decided to give DREDD a watch and I have to say, this movie surprised me. It was like watching the comic come to life. The plot was solid, the action and violence were gratuitous, this was an overall excellent movie. 4 1/2 out of 5 stars.

The beginning of the movie story started out pretty bad, there was no real hook other than the visuals. Then right away, the movie projects into hardcore grossness, that I could not even follow the movie plot because I was sick to my stomach and trying to recover from the shocking blow-out your brains type of scenes, but was sent immediately into another bloody scene. All the blood and gore just made me stop following the weak story line, we ended up walking out 1/4 part of the movie, complained to management to allow us to go see Lawless for the price we spent on the movie. I give this movie a failing grade overall, I think only murderers would enjoy this movie!!! This is not even a Red Box rental quality movie!
