You don't have to know the comic, & the Judgement is..., AWESOME!
Being a fan of the 2000AD series, DREDD made me happy, & I want to see this movie again, really soon! Karl Urban & Olivia Thirlby did awesome jobs as Dredd, & Rookie Judge Anderson. I don't want to describe too much here because you really need to "see" their performances. Their adversary is the drug kingpin, MA-MA, ptayed by Lena Headey.I would've liked to see a bit more of her backstory, but there was enough to give her the reason for being the film's main Bad Guy".The Special FX were top notch, with nothing ridiculous. The 3D aspect was used mostly to give a sense of "expansive depth" while still showing the cramped living areas of a "Block". Sure, there were some slow motion scenes/fights, mostly to show the effects of the Slo-Mo drug, but they were well done. DREDD will be the "District 9" of 2012. Another awesome movie with lots of word of mouth, but not enough viewers. I hope that I'm wrong with this prediction, & that it gets the viewership it so deserves!
