Visually stunning and full of tension, 'Dredd' is that rare remake that not only improves upon the original, but blows it completely out of the water in every way.
Judge dredd movies but this one is kick ass with the slowmo
What i liked most about Dredd was the originality and the believable storyline. and i thought the whole setting was awesome and made the movie really cool and interesting to watch. It was a treat to have such low expectations because this film carries a reputation for being a flop, only to be blown away and fully entertained. i hate to say in a way it kind of works for the movie to carry the reputation of being a flop with good reviews because a flop always has a viewer not expecting much regardless of reviews. but honestly this movie has people banging their heads against the wall in some kind of regretful notion. i guess it works for the film making viewers think like "how did i miss this one!" Well the answer is clear, the damn marketers and pr team did a crap job hyping this one up for its theatrical release. And who ever decided to release this film against the end of watch and a clint eastwood film should be fired! Somebody didnt do the proper boxoffice tracking and research to make sure Dredd had a release which wouldnt be overshadowed. They had to of known rated r films dont do so well against other rated r films due to the limited number of adults who go to the movies verse pg 13 and under rated films which have a much wider audiences in children who can buy tickets without adults. If they didnt know this then i hope they have been fired because Dredd stands as a flop that doesn't deserve to be. This had all the makings of a great franchise that will never happen.
