A nice throwback to 80s/90s action flicks, Dredd has a really great grimy, dystopian feel with some pretty awful characters doing awful shit. It’s great. Karl Urban IS Judge Dredd. Forget that old 90s version with Sly, that one is too silly. This one plays it straight and man does it work. Olivia Thirlby is great as a supporting character and Lena Headey is amazing as always. There really aren’t a ton of different characters in this, but you never feel bored. Maybe that’s because they stuck to 95 minutes instead of drawing this out into a 2, 2.5, or 3 hour slog like so many other comic book movies seem to do.

Absolutely a must-see action movie. My wife, who does NOT like action movies, got sucked in and ended up really liking it. It’s so good.

Rating – 9 Slo-Mo’s out of 10
