The movie, by the end, practically seems intent on destroying itself.

A thunderous, unoriginal futuristic hardware show for teenage boys.

Directed without inspiration by Danny Cannon from a stupid script by Michael De Luca, William Wisher, and Steven de Souza.

This slam-bang Stallone vehicle never quite delivers what its confident, fizzing visuals seem to promise.

Although it is full of noise and fake firepower, Dredd simply lies there on the screen until the final scenes.

Usually engaging and sympathetic, Stallone is blank and tongue-tied here, an immovable slab in the midst of 95 minutes of gunfire, explosions and Gothic excess.

The director doesn't provide much kinetic movie-making pleasure but he knows enough to jam the screen with clamor. It's not excitement, exactly. It's simulated excitement.

Sometimes, it's rather amusing, but it's impossible to decide whether this is accidental or on purpose.

Stallone survives it, but his supporting cast, also including an uninvolved Joan Chen and a tremendously intense Jurgen Prochnow, isn't well used.

Aside from the affable Schneider and the able Lane, the cast seems to be in deep shock. Um, make that Dredd lock.

Never has such a big, dumb movie seemed so small, as it shrinks from Blade Runner sharp to Jetsonian junky.
