Tonally one-note, and that note is grim, nihilistic, super-stylized, violent and humorless. But it's a spectacular technical feat, hugely loyal to its source ... an extremely expensive arthouse action flick for the die-hard crowd.
Far from the mess of the 1995 Sylvester Stallone version - in which they made the mistake of taking the character's helmet off - this all-new take on the no-nonsense comic book anti-hero is a tightly packed, trapped-in-a-building action blamfest.
One of the top Action Movies of the Year! No stupid clowning around with actors and stupid scenery, taken seriously. I like when the crew making the movie is taking it seriously and trying their best to make things look as close to reality in normal life. This picture shows the gritty(sick) part of life without holding it back. The things you read about in the paper. Although most of the movie is confined to one area, they do a good job at it. This movie shows you one of Dredds worst days and does a good job at it.
