Consensus: Fueled by bombastic violence and impressive special effects, rooted in self-satire and deadpan humor, Dredd 3D is a rare example of a remake that actually works.

While not for the squeamish, Dredd 3D is an effectively gritty B movie accentuated by stylish visuals and irreverent humor.

My notes are as follows: "Shoot bad guy." "Shoot bad guy." "Shoot bad guy."

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.

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.

Proves a surprisingly unimaginative cops vs. drug lord story, complete with the weathered veteran forced to take a rookie under his wing.

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.

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.

Taking more from the original comic than the 1995 adaptation, "Dredd" is simple, bloody, gory, gross, action packed, and thrilling. This new Dredd… More

Keeping the dark, edginess of the original 2000 AD comic this is also a visually impressive piece of sci-fi, with some great use of 3D. The only thing that lets… More

Resurrecting a franchise that (on screen) had been universally loathed due to the poor, Sylvester Stallone-fronted name bearer from 1995, "Dredd" was… More

Not the typical sci-fi film in terms of tone and style, but I ate it up like the sci-fi geek I am. Karl Urban is simply hardcore. I think they did an excellent… More
