In the future, America is a dystopian wasteland. The latest scourge is Ma-Ma, a prostitute-turned-drug pusher with a dangerous new drug and aims to take over the city. The only possibility of stopping her is an elite group of urban police called Judges, who combine the duties of judge, jury and executioner to deliver a brutal brand of swift justice. But even the top-ranking Judge, Dredd, discovers that taking down Ma-Ma isn’t as easy as it seems in this explosive adaptation of the hugely popular comic series.
This movie is the proof that the world is becoming a sick and dumb place
Good , But It Is Overrated By Some
It's the kind of movie you'll want to see a second time with someone who hasn't seen it yet, to remember what it was like to watch it for the first time.
This is the real Dredd. This is the single-point focus, straight ahead, nothing but the Dredd, Dredd. And with a totally cool sidekick. His opponent is just as perfectly done. Everything with this movie is right. Bravo!
I still love Sylvester Stallone as Dredd cause it the first time ever I heard of the character and the movie got the charm of a sci-fi action in the 90s so going to Dredd 2012 I honestly don't know what to expect cause I think it a remake but to my surprise it not only better but meaner as well.People say Judge Dredd never take off his helmet so when Sly show his face entirely in the 1995 version it automatically fail as a Judge Dredd movie so in the new version Karl never take off his helmet but that not the only reason why the movie is this good.The action is brutal and the villian Ma-Ma played by Lena Headey is way more scary than the over the top comic villian Rico with her death easy earn a spot in "Top 10 most memorable villian death of all time".The movie don't make much money back at the box office so it 2018 and Dredd 2 still cover in shadow which make me angry cause when the fan demand their movie being made with care and love haft of them don't shows up in the theater
In a violent, futuristic city where the police have the authority to act as judge, jury and executioner, a cop teams with a trainee to take down a gang that deals the reality-altering drug, SLO-MO. I'm one of the few people who did liked the 1995 Stallone driven Judge Dredd film and to me this film was kind of an insult. I did liked the girl and Lena's perfomance as Ma-ma but i think that Karl tried way hard to get into the shoes of that character. I mean at one point he acts like Stallone's Dredd and the next as Bale's Batman and a combination of different faces. The plot was also unoriginal and the Rated R at times a bit goofy it's basically like Conan in 3D but a bit better and still bad. (4/10)
In my opinion this movie was a great follow-up to the old movies with Sylvester Stallone and Carl Urban did a great job as well as Olivia Thirlby and Lena Headey.
