While not for the squeamish, Dredd 3D is an effectively gritty B movie accentuated by stylish visuals and irreverent humor.

We have seen this future. And not only does it not work - it no longer even surprises.

Proves a surprisingly unimaginative cops vs. drug lord story, complete with the weathered veteran forced to take a rookie under his wing.

Smartly cast and with a sharp team behind the scenes, there is no good reason why "Dredd 3D" is such a clunk-headed action picture.

Every so often there's a suggestion that a police state may actually be a lousy idea, but this thought dies even faster than the disposable characters.

What's exceptional is the orchestration of color, form, light and dark (lots of dark), 3-D technology and digital effects into a look that amounts to a vision.

In a generic way, the environment works. But it drains the material of what should be most unique about it, and leaves Urban twisting despite a tightly coiled performance.

"Dredd" is a lot of murk and grunt with no inner engine. And the unnecessary 3-D only makes it look muddier.

With its dark characters and the grim setting, the film masterfully creates a compelling, nightmarish atmosphere.

Urban manages to give a credibly wry performance using little more than his gravelly, imitation-Eastwood voice - and his chin.

Even if the similarity to The Raid: Redemption is pure coincidence, Dredd 3D suffers greatly by comparison, as it fails to muster even half of the thrills of its predecessor.

Dredd is proudly degenerate-and it never feels compelled to slow down and explain itself.

Urban gives the best "all mouth" performance since the Rocky Horror lips, sneering with seen-it-all gruffness and intoning Dredd's trademark catchphrase-"I am the law"-with the kind of B-movie-inflected soulfulness that feels damn-near profound.

Not much of what Dredd has to offer is new or groundbreaking, but the fusion of familiar elements generates a smartly-paced, suspenseful 90 minutes that's a vast improvement over the 1995 film ...

Essentially a futuristic take on Die Hard or The Raid: Redemption, this is a violent, gory and faithful execution of the character that fans should rejoice at.

Dredd 3D isn't revelatory, nor does it redefine any of the genres it splashes among as it goes its merry, bloody way, but as goofy-gory self-satire high-tech low-morality future-cop epics go, it's charmingly diabolical.

Dredd 3D constantly impresses on a visual level, with a gritty style more akin to cult hits like District 9 or 28 Days Later than to standard Hollywood comic-book blockbusters.

Travis makes the most of limited resources: the industrial backdrops are stunning, the action scenes sizzle and the eye-of-the-addict Slo-Mo sequences are sickeningly beautiful.

Grim, gritty and ultra-violent, Dredd reinstates the somber brutality missing from the U.K. comicbook icon's previous screen outing.
