It was pretty good for what it was, not great though so I wouldn't get my expectations too high based on this thread. There's a really cheesy slow motion shot that they repeatedly use that gets a little annoying
I just watched it myself, and it made the Stallone version look stupid. Good action and Olivia Thrilby was pretty good in it too. Karl Urban was pretty solid as Dredd. It was also pretty hard to believe that MaMa was the same actress as King Leonidas' queen in 300. Overall, good flick.

quote: Just rewatched it. Fantastic movie.
Watched it last night. I don't think it's "fantastic" because it suffers from a too-simple plot, dull dialogue, and that all too familiar bad guys can't shoot straight cliche. I'd only rate it as "good" and "enjoyable". Lena Headey is typically awesome.

Got a chance to watch it on Netflix last night and loved it. It knew what it was, and did it splendidly. No need for an overcomplicated plot, or unnecessary love story...just Dredd fricking shite up. I hope it does get a sequel, I'd definitely check out the next one in theaters.
