Product Description

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, The Lord of the Rings, Star Trek) 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, Juno), a rookie with powerful psychic abilities thanks to a genetic mutation. A heinous crime calls them to a neighbourhood where fellow Judges rarely dare to venture--a 200 story vertical slum controlled by prostitute turned drug lord Ma-Ma (Lena Headey, Game of Thrones, 300) and her ruthless clan. When they capture one of the clan’s inner circle, Ma-Ma overtakes the compound’s control centre 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.

From Amazon.co.uk

The worldwide box office returns may not have been up to the level that the makers of Dredd had wanted, but they've nonetheless got a lot to be pleased about with the film itself. Dredd is, after all, a strong, respectful adaptation of the 2000AD comic strip, that boasts a terrific leading performance from Karl Urban.

Firmly resigning memories of the lesser Sylvester Stallone-headlined Judge Dredd where they belong, this new Dredd is a grittier, far more interesting piece of cinema. Urban stars in the title role, a law enforcer of the future who works as judge, jury and executioner, in the fight to keep crime under control. Taking the rookie Anderson under his wing, played by Olivia Thirlby, the pair of them have to clean out a huge tower block full of criminals, who want them both dead.

Eschewing the need quickly to appeal to a young audience, Dredd is a hard, gritty, enthralling piece of cinema, full of visual zest and with 3D that genuinely enhances the end product. Director Pete Travis deploys 3D firmly for particular effect, and it's an effort rewarded.

Backed up by a disc featuring interesting and diverting extra features, Dredd might not have been the most popular comic book adaptation to hit the big screen in 2012, but it's pretty much the bravest. It deserves to find a far wider audience on disc. --Jon Foster

Note: Both 3d and 2d versions are on the same disc.

5.0 out of 5 stars Anti-Climax??? 8 Nov. 2012
By Razor
Format:DVD
This film is an introduction to a day in the life of Dredd, it doesn't need to be complex, it just needs to show one Judge's belief in getting the job done...and that's what DREDD has done. The pre-release interviews state it's for the fans and the comics were always about Dredd dealing with situations, no character building only Justice.

For the reviewers stating this film has an anti-climax, you really didn't get it.....OK there was no "boss fight", but that was the point, to Dredd, Ma-Ma was just another Perp in an everyday event in Mega City One, she derserved no more screen time at the finale than Dredd gave her, his job is to enforce Judgement to Criminals, that's what he did, then went straight back out to tackle more scum in Mega City's crime ridden existence. He is old Stoney Face, and his committment to the Justice Dept. is his chartacter, this film has always been for the fans, I for one am glad of the low budget and lack of interference from the Hollywood Gloss and Dross.

5.0 out of 5 stars He IS the Law! 19 Sept. 2013
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I have been dying to see a true adaptation of the Judge Dredd comics and it seemed to take an awful long time for someone to stand up and say 'Hey, lets remake Judge Dredd' and what with comic book movies being the main revenue source of most films companies these days, I'm really surprised this wasn't picked up earlier. Even Spiderman AND Superman got rebooted twice in less than 10 years!

This film is the true incarnation of the comic, yes minus the huge golden shoulder pads. It's set in a futuristic America after a global war. People are reduced to living in an extremely over populated 'Mega City' where crime is rife. The government found that the only way to combat the ever increasing crime and disorder were to give the police the ability to judge a criminal there and then... That premise to what Judges do alone creates an interesting scenario on its own.

This film is violent, without a shadow of a doubt and I do hear a lot of people not custom to the Dredd comics complaining about this. But to take away the violence would then strip the nature of what life is like in the Mega city and thereby removing the necessity for the Judge's role.

The story in the film itself is generic. Good guys stuck in a building with the odds greatly stacked against them, having to make their way to the top to take out the boss. The different here is that this is Judge Dredd with a rookie partner, who happens to be psychic, making their way to the top in the most calculative, violent way possible.

What has tarnished this is the Stallone version that came out in 1995. That and the fact that most theatres didn't show this long enough, there was only a 3D option when it was showing and very little to no PR went into it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Urban Dredd 24 Sept. 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Best action film I've seen in years. Short of starring Clint Eastwood in his prime you could not wish for a better Dredd than Karl Urban. He is Dredd.
And it is not a horrible PG watered down action film either. It's proper blood spraying old school violent. The soundtrack is great too.

O.k. I am a huge fan of the comics. I never got into the safe, coffee table marvel comic story lines and always fel Dredd to have more of an edge with its drug addicts, terrorists, mutants and serial killers that filled the story lines. For years i looked forward to the movie...then Stallone did one that was NOT anything to do with the comic OR character.......and that was that!...until now!

The Good-
Its shot in a dirty, grimy way (as Mega City One should be) some people are complaining about this but i understand this was done to make the 'Slow Mo' scenes much more clear and sharp which moves me onto my next point. The Slow Mo scenes were absolutely beautiful, they were shot in extreme slow motion with a track that sounded like Loscil's 'Argonaut'. The effect was a tiny glimpse into the mind of a poor drug taker seeing a snatched moment of perfection in an otherwise ugly world...i remember the scene with Ma Ma in the bath and the droplets of water looked like a a shower of diamonds floating in the air. Cinematically combining these moments with the grey, grim futuristic settings with only flashes of sickly and nuclear yellows to draw the eye i was impressed.
Its Good Vs Evil in a strictly darwinian way. The justice is doled out in a totally impartial way...many people have said this is pure fascism but these people obviously do not know the story behind the judges...retirement is called 'the long walk' and means leaving Mega City One to wander the cursed earth and try to bring justice to the mutant wastelands. The Judges are selfless upholders of the law who reap no reward other than seeing a perp get what they deserve.

5.0 out of 5 stars Better than Batman 9 Jan. 2013
Format:Blu-ray
Dredd sucker-punched my expectations and is my top pick of films in 2012. It throws away the clichés without any irrelevant focus on romance, saving the world or drastic character development. It's a very contained story without over-the-top thrills and it WORKS. It's a fantastic adaptation of the legendary 2000AD comic character and an adaptation that refuses to water-down the language, violence and grit fans of the comic will familiar with.
In a world where all film studios aspire for the precious 12A certificate, Dredd takes adult action by the balls and brings it back to its roots. It's a shame a film like this was overshadowed by the likes of Batman and Spider-man at the box-office because in my opinion Dredd is much, much better.
