Dredd 2012

Quite simply a superior action film, and whilst it's no masterpiece (then again, it's not supposed to be) it's as good as fans could ever have hoped.

I rank this 8/10. One of the best movies of 2012. Awesome Soundtrack (Kind of a Trance Style). Great choice of visuals, seems closer to today which made it more identifiable with most people. Slo-Mo was used too much though

Pretty violent. Nice movie

This was a good action movie. Visually stunning and visceral. It is really hard to compare it with the previous Judge Dredd movie they are just different animals. This movie is more straight up action where the previous version had move levity and camp.

For good, new adaptation.

Agreed, that slow-mo was over-done a bit much, but it seems that's what the people demand these days.

Very much action packed. Great ending sequence.

I did like the slow-mo and sound effects, very well done. Just not as much would have been better.

Amusing over stylized ultraviolence with the expected dialog, some of the costuming (Domhnall) was really good.

Judge Dredd: Rookie, you're ready?
Anderson: Yeah.
Judge Dredd: You don't look ready.

Judge Dredd: I was wondering when you'd remember you forgot your helmet.
Anderson: Sir, a helmet can interfere with my psychic abilities.
Judge Dredd: Think a bullet in the head might interfere with them more.

Judge Dredd: You ready?
Anderson: Yeah.
Judge Dredd: You look ready.

I only watched it once. It is sexier and way more violent than the Sylvester Stallone movie. As well as better. Well, much better.
Since the original was a Stallone movie. He had to take the helmet off through most the movie. I don’t recall seeing Karl Urban’s face once in this movie.
Urban’s is so serious and bad ass. That he might as well be playing Robocop. He doesn’t mess around and doesn’t shoot out his lines, over the top. Like Stallone did in the 1995 movie.
Dredd just suffers through too many stylish slow motion scenes.

I liked it more than I expected. Well, clearly I’m a big sucker for darker scifi movies. It has kinda high ratio of ‘Shots into heads per second’ and plot is nothing spectacular. Besides that there some cool feats like lovely&gritty atmosfere, yummy soundtrack and lovely camera shots.

I prefer this look of dredd over the 1995 version of dredd.

I blind-bought the Blu-ray of this one recently since I heard it's actually underrated and succeeds even the first film, Judge Dredd (1995) with Stallone. Prior to seeing this, I knew the Dredd comics had a lot of bloody and gory content, and this one provided some of that. It's a more dark gritty reboot, definitely different from the '95 film, and the soundtrack is more electronic as opposed to orchestral. There are some nice visuals and cinematics; a bit on the saturated look. They use a lot of that Frank Miller 300-style slow motion effect, still effectively cool considering it seems low-budget CGI like you'd see from an indie action short film such as Kung Fury (2015) or Manborg (2011). The protagonist Ma-Ma is played by Lena Headey whom I recognize from the Terminator: Sarah Connor Chronicles, which I've been catching up on lately. I realized she's been in Game of Thrones, The Purge, and the 300 sequel as well. Olivia Thirlby, who plays a rookie Judge Anderson, is a cutie. She kinda reminded me of Samus Aran. See it in 3D if you can.

much better than the awful Stallone version, with Karl Urban making a very convincing Dredd indeed. shame the studio has no plans to make a sequel.

loading replies

The greatest movie I've seen in a while, packed with action and strait to the point. Eagerly awaiting a sequel (hopefully).

loading replies

I thoroughly enjoyed this movie. The cinematography was exceptional and the atmosphere created around a quite single plot was very engaging. Liked the performances of both protagonists, amd the vilain (Ma-Ma). All in all a very entartaining action movie. Certainly closer to the Dredd universe than the 1995 stalone flop.

8/10

Wow, this film was GREAT! I'm sad it took me so long to get round to watching it.

Disheartening to hear that it didn't make much money and that a squeal likely wont happen.

"Welcome to the inside of your head. It's kind of empty in here."

On a technical level Dredd is a little off at times (acting, dialogue, character interactions, editing, lighting) it's not that bad but it took me out of it a few times. It takes itself too seriously and completely lacks comedy in the first 40 minutes which gives off the wrong impression because everything after that is more fun oriented: pure action, gory kills and all kinds of comedy. I only wanted more of these moments because it's not quite enough. The final showdown was very short-lived, I expected way more.

You can never go wrong with Lena Headey as a villain, she was clearly a standout. Karl Urban's voice is always welcome. Favorite character ended up being Anderson and her mind readind. Basic score but it works well. The slow-motion scenes are ridiculous but it adds to the comedy I guess.

loading replies

Yep. Still terrible. If someone tells you that they really like this movie I'd take it as a pretty blaring red flag, and I'm no psychic. It revels in the disgusting, the violent, and violating.

Purely technically, the editing is bad, and the picture generally looks cheap and ugly, the hideous green post processing on top of blaring yellows and reds being the proverbial lipstick on a pig. The film was obviously under budgeted, which got my grading curve to its favor when I first saw it, but Olivia Thirlby really is the only saving grace. Karl Urban can barely manage to get any acting through the plastic-for-metal, the helmet is so obstructive, and the affected voice is almost as bad as Bale's Batman. There's also seemingly no message, and the whole thing just feels like a waste of time, and in that time you've been mind raped.

Dredd uncut

Carl and Olivia put in

This movie definitely
takes inspiration from
The Raid and that is not
a bad thing at all in fact
it's that choice that makes
this movie so
Frickin Awesome.
I love the no nonsense feel
and the dirty gritty attitude
it has from start to finish.
Ironically it's criminal that
we never got any sequels
from this hard hitting
Tons of fun movie.

Verdict: full of attitude
and charisma with an
unapologetic approach.
A BALLS TO WALLS

And a Hella of a

"Negotiation's over. Sentence is death."

One of the best comic book movie adaptations and it’s a damn shame that no one saw it and that any future projects of it are most likely not happening. Karl Urban nails the look and attitude and something about it feeling low budget fits that dirty world.

“I am the Law.” Dredd attempts to reboot the Judge Dredd series as a gritty, ultraviolent action film. In this adaptation, Dredd, a police officer with the power to sentence and execute criminals in the field, takes on a trainee for a ride-along and ends up locked down in building complex controlled by a crime lord. Karl Urban, Lena Headey, and Olivia Thirlby form an interesting cast and deliver some good performances. The costumes and set designs are also quite impressive, and make for a captivating visual style. Yet some of the scenes are overly artistic and self-indulgent. But the action is done well, and the soundtrack does an exceptional job at enhancing the tone of the film. With a bold new vision, Dredd delivers an exciting and adrenaline-packed adventure.

Some mindless entertainment for a sleepy afternoon. Lena Headley will always be a draw for me. A surprising bit part for Domhnall Gleason. I’m not sure Karl Urban brought much to the titular role but newcomer Olivia Thirlby brought heart to the movie. I give this a 7 (good) out of 10. [Comic Book Action]

Watched with the guys, I liked this. We made a lot of "Raid" jokes early on (the premise is super close), but it was different enough... Definitely not great, but it was a lot of fun. I didn't really know anything about the Judge Dredd universe and this has me searching out graphic novels / collections. Loved the gritty "used future" style. Would be interested to hear suggestions on storylines or anything to search out or stay away from... there's a TON out there.

Just gore-action casual movie. standard

loading replies

The world-building is pretty nice, from cinematography, narrative, and characters' dialogue. However as an action flick the action scenes leaves something to be desired. There is no stake in the Judges' character as we know they will always win no matter the situation. The gun shots are kinda plain. Effects are neatly dramatic and flashy. The characters, given the short amount of time they actually interact with each other, are actually pretty interesting and I wished they could have built more on that.

The plot reminds the raid, this is entertaining and he does not remove the helmet, the action is fine

Mindless action.
Karl Urban doesn't even show his face... I wonder if it was really him or they just paid to use his name.

Brilliant slo-mo scenes, intercalated with lots of explosions, blood and glitter floating in the air. Week storyline/script.

After the cult movie "Judge Dredd", this had to be a disappointment since it couldn't possibly live up to the hype. What resulted is a solid yet not overly inspired action flick during which no brain capacities what so every are needed.

@sp1ti
Well, to me the visual-effects are actually on the good side - but visual effects and slow motion alone doesn't make a movie great.
OK I knew it's going to be a simple action movie, but to me & again this goes JUST FOR ME, this flick was too simple - it didn't had any additional value to me.
It was just like "you shoot me, I shoot you". There are a lot of movies like this, but in Terminator for example it goes about the survival of mankind - so that's something.
But don't let us get too critical here - it's a comic adaptation after all ;D
(Maybe I was just disgusted by this stupid Stallone mouth imitation and this ridiculous costume-design which looked like a direct copy from the 90's)

4/10 for Action by itself, everything else was pretty awful. The Actors were bland and uninteresting. Dredd's scowl was infuriating. I get it - you're a badass, but you've gotta have more than one expression! Could have made Mama a more sophisticated and interesting criminal, but it wasn't to be. It was a perfect setting to provide some social commentary, and make it into a smart action film. But instead it was just a dumb, level climbing, Duke Nukem 3D style movie.

And as the other users said - Slo Mo was BAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAD.

I give this movie a 3 out of 10 for effort. It was visually bland, not at all futuristic looking. Wrong choice of actor; the guy was way too small, scrony, his helmet looked too big for him. He had the right look on his face for the character type, but not a strong gruff enough voice. The story was bland, not much going for it.

The slomo I assume where for the 3D more than anything, and looked terrible.

I think this movie was made more for Dredd comic book fans, which runs into the danger of not appealing to people beyond that small circle. Would explain why it flopped.

The Stallone version is one of those old action classics of the time, had good visuals in the blade runner style and had decent action.
