Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The movie, by the end, practically seems intent on destroying itself."
‑ Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly
"This slam-bang Stallone vehicle never quite delivers what its confident, fizzing visuals seem to promise."
‑ Geoff Andrew, Time Out
"'90's Stallone action movie guilty of nonstop violence."
‑ Brian Costello, Common Sense Media
"Feels more like the Adventures of Sly Stallone: Future Warrior..."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"Isn't helped by Sylvester Stallone's embarassingly awkward performance."
‑ , TV Guide's Movie Guide
"A thunderous, unoriginal futuristic hardware show for teenage boys."
‑ Todd McCarthy, Variety
"Although it is full of noise and fake firepower, Dredd simply lies there on the screen until the final scenes."
‑ Caryn James, New York Times
"It stands no chance of being mistaken for a good movie."
‑ Matt Brunson, Creative Loafing
"A diffuse, uninvolving star vehicle aimed at saving Stallone's box-office viability manages to display most of his weaknesses."
‑ Emanuel Levy, EmanuelLevy.Com
"Um personagem sem carisma em uma história sem sentido."
‑ Pablo Villaca, Cinema em Cena
"Directed without inspiration by Danny Cannon from a stupid script by Michael De Luca, William Wisher, and Steven de Souza."
‑ Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader
"Usually engaging and sympathetic, Stallone is blank and tongue-tied here, an immovable slab in the midst of 95 minutes of gunfire, explosions and Gothic excess."
‑ Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle
"If it can't stay true to the title character, it at least delivers a little modest popcorn fun to those willing to lower their sights."
‑ Rob Vaux, Sci-Fi Movie Page
"A bomb; I dread having to ever see this turkey again."
‑ Bob Bloom, Journal and Courier (Lafayette, IN)
"Not as worthless as it looks ... but close."
‑ Scott Weinberg, eFilmCritic.com
