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.
September 21, 2012
Proves a surprisingly unimaginative cops vs. drug lord story, complete with the weathered veteran forced to take a rookie under his wing.
September 21, 2012
My notes are as follows: "Shoot bad guy." "Shoot bad guy." "Shoot bad guy."

This, finally, is the Dredd movie comic book readers have been anticipating.
September 20, 2012
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.
September 20, 2012
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.
September 20, 2012
For sci-fi action fans, it's an instant classic.

It's savage, beautiful and loads of fun.
September 20, 2012
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.
September 20, 2012
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.
September 20, 2012
"Dredd" is a lot of murk and grunt with no inner engine. And the unnecessary 3-D only makes it look muddier.
September 20, 2012
A fine piece of cheap entertainment.
September 20, 2012
With its dark characters and the grim setting, the film masterfully creates a compelling, nightmarish atmosphere.
September 20, 2012
Urban manages to give a credibly wry performance using little more than his gravelly, imitation-Eastwood voice - and his chin.
September 20, 2012
"Dredd 3D" may present a dreary vision of the future, but it offers a promising encapsulation of the modern action movie.
September 20, 2012
A wickedly dark comic streak breaks up the vivid violence and relentless bleakness of "Dredd 3D."
September 20, 2012
Mostly a bunch of flatly staged bits of action shot against anonymous backgrounds.
September 19, 2012
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.
September 18, 2012
Dredd is proudly degenerate-and it never feels compelled to slow down and explain itself.
