Dredd R

2012 ▪ Science Fiction ▪ 98 Minutes

Directed by Pete Travis. Starring Karl Urban, Olivia Thirlby, Lena Headey, Wood Harris, and Langley Kirkwood.

A feared urban cop takes on a vicious urban drug dealer in a futuristic metropolis as director Pete Travis (Vantage Point) and screenwriter Alex Garland (28 days Later, Sunshine) team to bring iconic 2000A.D. lawman Judge Dredd to the big screen. In the future, much of North American has been poisoned by radiation. The sprawling urban jungle Mega City One stretches from Boston to Washington D.C., and in order to keep the growing criminal element in check, police enforcers called "Judges" have been given the power of judge, jury, and executioner. Judge Dredd (Karl Urban) is the most feared of them all, delivering death sentences with impunity as he fights to rid the streets of "Slo-Mo" - a powerful new drug that alters its user's perception of time. In the process of training psychic rookie Cassandra Anderson (Olivia Thirlby), Dredd receives a report of an incident in a sprawling criminal stronghold ruled by fearsome drug lord Ma-Ma (Lena Headey), and ventures in to investigate. Upon learning that one of her top men has been captured by Dredd shortly thereafter, an enraged Ma-Ma seizes control of her massive 200 story complex, launching an all-out war against the Judges as Dredd and Cassandra find themselves trapped in the belly of the beast.

Would give this 3.5 stars if I could. It's a stylish and well paced action SF film, with a hilariously deadpan performance from Karl Urban. It's not deep and it's basically a one note story, but definitely cool to look at.
