Consensus: Judge Dredd wants to be both a legitimate violent action flick and a parody of one, but director Danny Cannon fails to find the necessary balance to make it work.

The movie, by the end, practically seems intent on destroying itself.

This slam-bang Stallone vehicle never quite delivers what its confident, fizzing visuals seem to promise.

Terribly acted. The script was mindlessly drafted. There's little of note in this film other than how "m'eh" it was.

With the possibility of a decent remake coming out Friday, I might as well watch the movie it's based off of. Sylvester Stallone stars as Judge Dredd, a… More

With the remake "Dredd 3D" coming out in a few weeks, I figured I would revisit the original. I remember this being one of those bad Stallone movies… More
