Product Description

Amazon.ca

Though few moviegoers queued up to see it, Pete Travis's Dredd is, like its titular hero, a tough, effective piece of action machinery with a single purpose: to fill the screen with as much eye-popping visual mayhem as possible. Based on the iconic British comic series Judge Dredd, which was previously adapted as the 1995 Sylvester Stallone vehicle of the same name, Dredd hews closer to its source material in its depiction of a postapocalyptic world reduced to anarchy and the police force known as the Judges, who try, convict, and execute criminals in one fell swoop. Karl Urban (Star Trek, The Lord of the Rings) is terrifically effective as Dredd, a monosyllabic force of nature dispatched to halt the manufacture of an addictive and disorienting narcotic called "Slo-Mo" by the vicious drug lord Ma-Ma (Lena Headey). With judge-in-training Anderson (Olivia Thirlby) in tow, Dredd works his way up Ma-Ma's 200-story tower stronghold, facing off against her minions as well as corrupt Judges in a barrage of elaborately violent action set pieces. Much of what sets Dredd apart from other comic book and science fiction-action features--the obsessive, brutal focus of its protagonist and the relentlessly bleak environment of the film's setting, Mega City-One--may also be off-putting for viewers who appreciate some grey areas or levity in their entertainment (though that's not to say that Dredd doesn't have its own flinty sense of humor).

But Travis's approach should appeal to both fans of the original comic as well as those who favor a vision of the future on the darkly dystopian side, à la Paul Verhoeven's RoboCop and John Carpenter's Escape from New York. Karl Urban acquits himself well to Dredd's steely single-mindedness, expressing an unyielding sense of righteousness in a helmet that obscures nearly all of his features; Thirlby and Headey are also fine as strong, forthright female characters on either side of Dredd's moral compass. The single-disc Blu-ray includes both the standard and 3-D versions of the film, with the latter option avoiding some of the vertigo-inducing effects of digital 3-D while also offering the best showcase for the extraordinary "Slo Mo" sequences. Extras include a solid, introductory featurette on the history of the Dredd character via interviews with, among others, its creators John Wagner and Carlos Ezquerra, and an overview of the picture's visual effects and 3-D process with cinematographer Anthony Dod Mantle. A brief motion comic outlines the back story for Ma-Ma, while the remainder of the supplements are devoted to electronic press kit coverage of the set design and Dredd's array of equipment, among others. A digital copy and UltraViolet stream/download round out the disc. --Paul Gaita

Product Description

High octane sci-fi action movie with all-out, guns-blazing, bone-crushing, explosives-laden action. Based on the popular comic book character JUDGE DREDD.

The future America is an irradiated wasteland. On its East Coast lies Mega City One - a vast violent metropolis where criminals rule the chaotic streets. The only force of order lies with the urban cops called "Judges" who possess the combined powers of judge jury and instant executioner. The ultimate Judge Dredd (Karl Urban) is tasked with ridding the city of its latest scourge -a dangerous drug and the sadistic prostitute turned drug pusher who is using it to take over the city.

------------------------

Dans un avenir proche, les Etats-Unis ne sont plus qu'un immense désert irradié. Mega City One est une métropole tentaculaire rongée par le vice. La seule forme d'autorité restante est représentée par les juges, une police urbaine qui cumule toutes les fonctions : flic, juge et bourreau. Une nouvelle drogue se propage, la Slo-Mo, qui permet de percevoir la réalité au ralenti. Sa distribution est contrôlée par Ma-Ma, ancienne prostituée, devenue baronne de la drogue. Dredd, le juge ultime, va se voir assigner une mission dans la tour de Ma-Ma et va devoir s'y confronter.

5.0 out of 5 stars Make a Sequel and Take my money!! Feb. 5 2013
By 7upman
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Dredd was an awesome movie. Not to be confused with the Stallone abomination, Dredd is the much needed reboot that this "comic book adaptation" needed. Karl Urban is the REAL Dredd now so dont mention Stallone and Dredd in the same sentence anymore. This is a hardcore action flick. Simple story but a lot of crazy, bloody violence. Faithful to the comics, which a lot of these comic books movies aren't. The only tragedy is that it made so little in its box office run that the sequel is in jeopardy. If you want good movies to be made, then you have to pay to watch them. So do the world, and yourself, a favor and buy Dredd on Blu-ray.

4.0 out of 5 stars Dredd hits home at high impact Jan. 21 2013
By Derek Draven TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:Blu-ray
Comic book anti-hero Judge Dredd has been brought to the silver screen before, in the notably loathed 1995 film adaptation starring Sylvester Stallone. That movie was critically panned due to a tangled script, bad lines, and too many liberties taken with Dredd source material. In 2012, Hollywood took another shot with the franchise, and managed to give Dredd the live-action presentation that he justly deserves.

'Dredd' is played Karl Urban, who brings his clockwork grimace and growl to a character that actually makes the best use of them. As part of an elite law enforcement unit known as The Judges, Dredd is tasked with patrolling the sprawling post-apocalyptic mega-tropolis called Mega-City One, dispensing quick and brutal on-the-spot justice according to established law. Armed with a sophisticated multi-functional sidearm called a Lawgiver, Dredd is both judge, jury, and if need be, executioner. As the story begins, Dredd is tasked with investigating Peach Trees, a 200 storey building which houses some of the worst known violent offenders in the city. At the top of the hill is Ma-Ma (Lena Headey), a cruel and sadistic psychopath who peddles the new designer drug "Slo-Mo," which seems to slow down a user's sense of time while giving them a euphoric high. Ma-Ma orders the brutal skinning of three dealers who are then unceremoniously thrown from the top of the building to the ground floor. Dredd arrives to investigate, but he isn't alone. Paired with him is Cassandra Anderson (Olivia Thirlby), an unseasoned young Judge who failed initial aptitude tests, and is now being personally evaluated in the field by Judge Dredd.

5.0 out of 5 stars So good, I bought it twice! July 26 2013
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Stallone's 'Judge Dredd' movie back in 1995 was such a dissapointment for me, I ignored this movie for a long time!

If you're a fan of Judge Dredd, this movie is going to make you smile!

Karl Urban IS the law!

This movie is so good, that I want them to make a sequel, so I bought it twice!

Support the film! You buy it too!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Movie July 26 2013
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I generally don't watch movies as I prefer television serials like the new BSG or Babylon 5 but this movie won me over. It's an excellent take on Judge Dredd that is much better than the obnoxious Stallone movie. The film makers treated the source material seriously and made the characters reflect the source. Most importantly, it feels real, not quite too far outside of the realm of possibility.

Also worthy of note is that there are no "Blockbuster tropes". By that I mean the whole tired set of lazy Hollywood cliche's that go into most major movies. No generic guy/girl romance, no cartoon evil villain who is a nihlist, no senseless explosions after explosions set pieces (looking at you Bay). The movies very up close and in your face in a good way.

Support the Blu Ray so we can get a sequel. My only regret in writing this is not going to the watch it on the big screen.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Stunning Vision Feb. 5 2013
By Riddick
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Wiping away the bad memories of the 1995 Judge Dredd film, this film is what Judge Dredd fans have wanted.

It looks gorgeous, and the action is brutal and gory. The Bluray makes it look amazing. The acting by Karl Urban and Olivia Thirlby bring the characters to life.

Well worth checking out.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dredd - The Best Movie Of 2012! Jan. 2 2013
By NJ
Format:Blu-ray
Dredd is a must watch, must own Action/Sci-Fi Thriller. It's easily the best Movie released in 2012, and far superior to the big Hollywood Movies that were released last Summer.

For example, better than both The Dark Knight Rises, and The Avengers Assemble.

Based on the iconic character Judge Dredd, from the thirty five year running British Comic 2000AD, and also the later published, Judge Dredd Megazine.

It's a brutal, old school 80's style Action film, which is very dark, gritty, and fairly violent and bloody too. Karl Urban is fantastic as the tough as nails, futuristic lawman Judge Dredd and really does the character true justice. Olivia Thirlby was also superb in the role of the psychic Cassandra Anderson as well. Lena Headey appears as the very dangerous and sadistic drug lord Ma-Ma, which is another strong performance from this fine actress.

Dredd is a completely new re-imagining of the character Judge Dredd and the World in-which he inhabits within the film, and has absolutely nothing to do with that awful Stallone Movie from 1995 at all. Dredd really is a great Movie, and if you haven't seen it yet, then I highly recommend it to you.

If the film does extremely well Worldwide on Blu-Ray and DVD, then the prospect of a Dredd 2 may become a real possibility, as Dredd was intended to be the first film of a trilogy. The third Movie would have seen the first big screen appearance of legendary Dredd characters, Judge Death and The Dark Judges.
