Dredd 3D Blu-ray

Dredd 3D Blu-ray Review

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. -- (C) Lionsgate
Early announcement to retailers show that 2012's reboot of "Dredd" in 3D is scheduled for a January 8, 2013 home video release. No official announcement, so no details on disc specifications or bonus features just yet. Will edit when pre-orders go live, and information is detailed.

Discuss your thoughts on movie, but please use spoiler tags when necessary.

Yeah, I just saw that! HATES (House at the End of the Street) got 2nd place, with double this movie's gross of $6-some million! I haven't seen it yet, so they didn't get my $14-$16 (would go in 3D), so I feel part at blame

I'm hearing nothing but rave reviews; nothing less than a 7/10, and "AngryJoe's Badass seal of approval". Lol.

I work more, so if I miss this one like I did with a LOT of releases, I'll most definitely check it out Day one!

Some people compared it to "The Raid", in the sense that they're fighting their way in a building. Just a wild comparison, or maybe holds true in some way?

Movie was great, easily better than the Raid.



Even though the only thing they have in common is fighting their way up a building.
It's a band logo.

Day one for sure!

Pure fun, but also not mindless(same writer as 28 Days Later, Sunshine and Never Let Me Go). Loved the acting and writing, but really got a kick out of its over the top violence and 3D Slo-mo effects. Highly recommended.

Not like The Raid at all. Apart from the building and drug lord villain, they're two very different types of film.

Imagine "Die Hard" with Batman/The Punisher/RobocoP in Blade Runner meets Mad Max meets District 9 setting.

I'm interested in picking it up when the price is right. Good reviews for a film like this is encouraging.

Saw this a few nights ago, and it's EASILY in my top 5 of 2012. Day one buy, no questions asked. It's a real shame how poorly it's performing at the box office. I saw it at Cinebarre and there were only 2 other people in the theater. Dredd deserves so much more. I wish it was kicking the crap out of RE5, and sadly, with Looper out this weekend, it doesn't stand a chance.

To those of you on the fence on this one, JUST GO SEE IT! It's a fun, no B.S. action flick with a solid cast, strong performances (especially by Olivia Thirlby) and copious amounts of violence. I didn't even mind the 3D!

Just saw this in 3D. Probably one of the most simple, straight-forward action movies I have ever seen. The 3D and slow motion (two things I usually hate) were actually used to great effect throughout the film. However, even at 95minutes, I felt that it could have been tightened up in a lot of places to increase suspense and tension. Also, I haven't read the comics, but some of Dredd's (very minimal) dialogue could have been a bit more creative.

Despite my (relatively minor) criticisms, Dredd 3D was very enjoyable overall and highly recommended for people that like their action films with a strong dose of blood and gore.

8/10

this movie impressed the hell out of me - definitely day one purchase - I thought though Karl's acting of Dredd was a little weird at times, like he was channeling Clint Eastwood, Robocop and Batman all at the same time.

After all disappointments like TDKR, Prometheus or Ex2 this is the best movie of the year at the moment. Hoping for worthy blu-ray release.

I will second your sentiment on those two for sure! Being a huge Batman fan, The Dark Knight Rises was only a slight step above Batman Forever. And Prometheus was an embarrassing addition to the Alien series, even if it is supposed to be a second (related) series. Expendables 2, though, was both better and worse than the first. The humor was great and the opening action scene was too. That final action scene cannot match the all out battle in EX1.

Dredd was really enjoyable. It reminded me of The Raid meets The Punisher: War Zone. I will definitely buy it, but not Day 1.
