The new Dredd movie was a not a bad film, but a remake was not really necessary. The whole thing was a cliche from every other action movie. The only part that blew my mind was the end when it showed the body slowly hitting the ground, that scene was well done and visually looked great.
While this script isn't anything groundbreaking, the Judge Dredd character itself, and the Megacity One mythos, has influenced tons of stuff that has come out since about 1980 and on.
This Dredd is solid for what it is. I actually cared if Dredd and Anderson made it out alive. There are some plot holes for sure, but Dredd is one of the better sci-fi movies I saw from last year. I actually liked it a lot more than Prometheus. Plus AVON BARKSDALE.
