Dredd - The Best Movie Of 2012!,
This review is from: Dredd 3D [Blu-ray 3D + Blu-ray + Digital Copy] (Bilingual) (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.
