How in God's name did this not do well at the box office? Whoever was in charge of marketing should never work on marketing ever again.

A true cult classic up there with Blade Runner.

Amazingly well made movie for the budget, and a lot better than the attention it received. Dredd is a beautiful homage to the Judge Dredd series from the 2000AD comic. The acting was excellent most of the way through. The visuals were often stunning. The music was wonderfully unique and very likeable.

Simply put: I think this is the best comic book movie I have ever seen.

As the credits rolled, I was left with a weird feeling inside: complete and total satisfaction, and not a single complaint.

With a remarkably light budget, this film perfectly tells a story in the world of Dredd. It doesn't over-exaggerate the stakes: a drug lord is endangering the lives of ~10,000 people. She's breaking the law. So she cannot be allowed to continue.

Dredd, gruff and unfeeling, shows up to dispense law and order, which just happens to coincide with justice. His helmet doesn't come off. There is no two-dimensional romance with Judge Anderson. There is a relationship and a mutual respect, but it stays PERFECTLY respectful to the source material.

When all is said and done, with hundreds of criminals in this vast urban cityscape dead, and Dredd is asked by his commanding officer what happened, Urban perfectly captures everything Judge Dredd is with two simple, blunt, un-pretentious words: "drug bust".

Just another day in the life of Dredd. God bless everyone involved in the making of this film, and here's hoping they scrounge up enough for the sequels.

Dredd, It's an action-packed movie, having good characters and great aesthetics, with a rhythm that keeps you entertained through the whole ride and visuals that add to the story. Dredd may not be a game changer or a contemplation of the big questions of life, but definitely is a good, hard R, action movie.

Amazingly faithful to the comics.

Think this film is nearer to the vision of the 2000AD comics than the awful Stallone version (although that did have some good ideas). Love the cast who all seem spot on with no real missteps in the casting. Karl Urban is on top form as Dredd, with a lot to do with his chin only on show for most of the film.

Top notch action film. Little corny but fills its needs. Decent plot and performance from Karl Urban. Thoroughly enjoyed it. Poor original but this instalment is well worth a watch.

Fun, intense, and beautifully shot, Dredd is an action film that definitely isn't for kids. Its violence is brutal and over-the-top, which is definitely a good thing. I've never read the comics, but it definitely does them justice. To top it all off, it features what is probably Karl Urban's best performance to date - without ever showing the top half of his face.

Loved it, if you can get over the face he makes it's a badass movie

Take the grind and grit of all action greats. This is Terminator meets Die Hard meets Robocop. Strong character driven plot and awesome 3D effects too. Such a pitty this movie was soo let down by its advertising campaign. Can happily watch this again and again.

Very good. MUCH and I mean much better than Stallone's egocentric version. It followed the comic to the tee. It had Anderson the psychic and Dredd never removed his helmet. Very bloody and the action scenes were intense. Lena Headley was great as Ma-Ma the crime lord. The special FX were very good.
