The future America is an irradiated waste land. On its East Coast, running from Boston to Washington DC, lies Mega City One- a vast, violent metropolis where criminals rule the chaotic streets.  The only force of order lies with the urban cops called "Judges" who possess the combined powers of judge, jury and instant executioner.  Known and feared throughout the city, Dredd (Karl Urban) is the ultimate Judge, challenged with ridding the city of its latest scourge - a dangerous drug epidemic that has users of "Slo-Mo" experiencing reality at a fraction of its normal speed.  

  

During a routine day on the job, Dredd is assigned to train and evaluate Cassandra Anderson (Olivia Thirlby), a rookie with powerful psychic abilities thanks to a genetic mutation.  A heinous crime calls them to a neighborhood where fellow Judges rarely dare to venture- a 200 story vertical slum controlled by prostitute turned drug lord Ma-Ma (Lena Headey) and her ruthless clan.  When they capture one of the clan's inner circle, Ma-Ma overtakes the compound's control center and wages a dirty, vicious war against the Judges that proves she will stop at nothing to protect her empire.  With the body count climbing and no way out, Dredd and Anderson must confront the odds and engage in the relentless battle for their survival. 

  

The endlessly inventive mind of writer Alex Garland and director Pete Travis bring DREDD 3D to life as a futuristic neo-noir action film.  Filmed in 3D with stunning slow motion photography sequences, the film returns the celebrated character to the dark, visceral incarnation from John Wagner and Carlos Ezquerra's revered comic strip.

    Oh look! Moronic knee-jerk posting

    by Dan

    It's at 95% from 44 reviews on RT. Fans from the UK (Where it's already out) seem to be very pleased with it. It had great word of mouth from SDCC. Are you an executive for Fox? Stupid stupid haters, gotta say something to look 'cool'. You look like a cock. You don't look like any sort fo film fan, or excited geek who knows his shit.

    saw this last week its surprisingly solid.

    urban can be dredd for as long as he wants he is fine as dredd, Olivia Thirlby stands out as well she doesn't say much but she has a connection to dredd that feels right. sadly it will get compared to the raid every which way and as such cant match its action, violence or pace. speaking of pace this film is slow and when it hits 3d slow-mo hours go by even if those hours have bullet to face explosions it drags after the 5th slo-mo drug take. and despite being the big baddie Lena Headey makes no impact at all, and Domhnall Gleeson is all over the place in terms of character reactions. given it was made by DNA films it does though has an air of doom and somberness to it you dont normally find in big budget action films even the ending is not what you would call happy. if your going to go see it go in 3D its worth the blood and guts

    Dredd 3D... I saw this on Friday night here in the UK and what a blast (literally) it was! As a kid I was more into Star Wars and Dan Dare than Dredd, although I bought a fair few progs over the years. I was disappointed by the Stallone film - it seemed more like a Demolition Man 2 than the Judge Dredd I knew. Well the wait for a decent film based on the character is over! As the years progressed and I settled into my career in law enforcement I took a renewed interest in Dredd and his bastard son Robocop (STILL not sure how I feel about that one.) Shot on a tiny budget Dredd 3D finds our established 'bad a$$' judge being assigned to baby sit a Psi recruit called Anderson (played by the lovely Olivia Thirbly.) Anderson is in danger of washing out - but the Hall of Justice is keen to secure her psychic powers. Dredd and Anderson go to investigate a triple homicide in the mega block 'Peach Trees' which is controlled by the gang matriarch 'Ma Ma' who produces a lethal narcotic called "Slo Mo." The judges turn up and pretty soon all hell breaks loose!! The awesome - Karl Urban and Olivia Thirbly totally dominate their representative roles. Dredd's lid NEVER comes off and KU channels Clint Eastwood for the law man's voice. OT plays Anderson with panache - just the right side of tough and attractive. Brilliantly there is not the tiniest spark of romantic interest between the two leads - which for me is a breath of fresh air. The character design of the Judges looks great - and believable - which is very important when bringing a comic book to the big screen. The level of violence is up there. Thankfully some very realistic gore is balanced out with bleak, dark typical 2000AD humour. The script cracks by - the film is short at 90 mins, but never drags. If you ever taken part in FIBUA or MOUT training then the creeping through corridors will bring back memories!!!! Now if you've seen "The Raid : Redemption" there are apparently quite a few similarities. The Peach Trees script by  Alex Garland has been floating about for a few years, therefore in terms of genesis Dredd perhaps came first. However I guess if you want this film to have maximum impact then perhaps (like me) you might want to hold off on the Raid until you've seen this dark little picture. The 3D is some of the best out there - it's beautiful when coupled with the 'Slo Mo' vision and the business end of a Law Giver!! My only complaints? I'd love to see a bit more of Mega City One (the budget didn't stretch to much of that) and the Law Master bikes could do with a little more ummmph! Hopefully the positive buzz surrounding this flick will open the doors for a higher budget (but equally well written sequel.) If TDKR was a full on WWF theatrical battle then Dredd 3D is a dirty, nasty prison shanking with a homemade blade... GO SEE IT NOW!!!

    Don't worry, I am seeing this, but not because of your review/advertisement.

  • No, not really. Just look at Thor. I want my judges with their ridiculously impractical gold-plated shoulder armor dressing.
