I loved it!!!! It was wonderful. I think they did a great job with the story. No cheesy body armor like the 1st. The action, special effects, & even the 3D was very well done. Yes it does rate the rated R but how they shot it kept the gore from being so shocking. And what can I say about Karl Urban. Such a hotty while playing a bad***!!!!!!

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.

I went to see Looper instead of Dredd, which proved to be a big mistake. Dredd was absolutely brilliant! Admittedly, while it may not be the ideal movie for a date, I was thoroughly impressed with the film's simplicity and directness, because it actually worked... Not to mention the fantastic costumes and effects. I was just loving those "slo-mo" shoot out scenes, and I also really appreciated the modern soundtrack, it was banging and went well with the action.

Movie is worth seeing, but you should know what to expect. It is an action shoot em up movie with very very cool special effects, I saw it in 2D but it is obvious it was filmed for 3d. Slow motion scenes are awesome.

...But for those that enjoy the gritty splatter comics from the 80's and 90's you MUST see this movie. The overall tone and visual style is awesome. The plot is honest and doesn't pretend to be anything more than it is. It's a fun movie for those enjoy things on the darker, grittier and more visceral side of the fence.
