Action junkies should delight in "Dredd."
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5
May 3, 2015
It's a good deal wittier than expected from a movie that consists mostly of people getting shot in the face.
April 3, 2013
There's something to be said for DREDD's not taking itself too seriously, and if you do the same, you'll have a ball watching it.
March 22, 2013
A tremendously entertaining film that consistently pushes the limits of 3D creativity in a way to seem like the images are leaping straight from the comic book panels.
Full Review | Original Score: 8.5/10

Dredd is like a gun - not everyone likes them and they're only good for one thing, but they do that one thing really, really well.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

Visually stunning with video game violence, this is Hollywood's answer to The Raid.

February 12, 2013
If Hollywood is going to be indicted for making mindlessly violent action films, let them at least be as good as this one.
January 29, 2013
Lean, mean and luridly violent, sci-fi action thriller Dredd does a much better job of bringing cult comic-book anti-hero Judge Dredd to the screen than the misfiring 1995 Sylvester Stallone version.
January 22, 2013
"Dredd" is non-stop action plus excellent 3D effects peppering an above-average story.

January 14, 2013
The judges are portrayed pretty uncompromisingly unlike the Stallone flick which tried to tone down the whole Fascist Police State thing.
January 9, 2013
A very entertaining and blood soaked action science fiction flick...
January 8, 2013
Erase your memories of Sly's bomb with this, director Pete Travis and writer/producer Alex Garland's lean reboot.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4

Whether by design or otherwise, Dredd seems better-suited to a 2D home video presentation than to the 3D silver screen.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
December 4, 2012
Tonally one-note, and that note is grim, nihilistic, super-stylized, violent and humorless. But it's a spectacular technical feat, hugely loyal to its source ... an extremely expensive arthouse action flick for the die-hard crowd.

November 2, 2012
Far from the mess of the 1995 Sylvester Stallone version - in which they made the mistake of taking the character's helmet off - this all-new take on the no-nonsense comic book anti-hero is a tightly packed, trapped-in-a-building action blamfest.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5
October 30, 2012
Grim, stylish, relentlessly violent - this is the balls-to-the-wall Dredd movie fans have been waiting for.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
October 27, 2012
...Dredd is one of the year's purest, most gratifying genre films.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
October 22, 2012
Never too ambitious in its storytelling, but consistently impressive in execution, Dredd is an outlier in the vast wasteland of Hollywood's overproduction-line.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
October 22, 2012
What Dredd lacks in satirical insight - a bizarre oversight, given its dystopian view of America's east coast - it makes up for in sheer brute force and meat-head violence.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5
October 21, 2012
Dredd not only succeeds as a brilliantly accurate adaptation of the decades-old comic book character, it's also an absolutely blistering and exciting dystopian action movie.
