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. --… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"While not for the squeamish, Dredd 3D is an effectively gritty B movie accentuated by stylish visuals and irreverent humor."
‑ Claudia Puig, USA Today
"My notes are as follows: "Shoot bad guy." "Shoot bad guy." "Shoot bad guy.""
‑ Kyle Smith, New York Post
"There's something to be said for DREDD's not taking itself too seriously, and if you do the same, you'll have a ball watching it."
‑ Meredith Borders, Badass Digest
"Visually stunning with video game violence, this is Hollywood's answer to The Raid."
‑ Tom Glasson, Concrete Playground
""Dredd" is non-stop action plus excellent 3D effects peppering an above-average story."
‑ Paul Chambers, Movie Chambers
"We have seen this future. And not only does it not work - it no longer even surprises."
‑ Stephen Whitty, Newark Star-Ledger
"This, finally, is the Dredd movie comic book readers have been anticipating."
‑ Sean O'Connell, Washington Post
"A tremendously entertaining film that consistently pushes the limits of 3D creativity in a way to seem like the images are leaping straight from the comic book panels."
‑ Jeffrey Lyles, Lyles' Movie Files
"If Hollywood is going to be indicted for making mindlessly violent action films, let them at least be as good as this one."
‑ Tim Grierson, Deadspin
"The judges are portrayed pretty uncompromisingly unlike the Stallone flick which tried to tone down the whole Fascist Police State thing."
‑ James O'Ehley, Sci-Fi Movie Page
"Proves a surprisingly unimaginative cops vs. drug lord story, complete with the weathered veteran forced to take a rookie under his wing."
‑ Frank Lovece, Newsday
"Smartly cast and with a sharp team behind the scenes, there is no good reason why "Dredd 3D" is such a clunk-headed action picture."
‑ Mark Olsen, Los Angeles Times
"Dredd is like a gun - not everyone likes them and they're only good for one thing, but they do that one thing really, really well."
‑ Matt Neal, The Standard
"Lean, mean and luridly violent, sci-fi action thriller Dredd does a much better job of bringing cult comic-book anti-hero Judge Dredd to the screen than the misfiring 1995 Sylvester Stallone version."
‑ Jason Best, Movie Talk
"A very entertaining and blood soaked action science fiction flick..."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
