Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: Although it is full of noise and fake firepower, Dredd simply lies there on the screen until the final scenes. – Caryn James, New York Times, Jul 16, 2008

Rotten: The movie, by the end, practically seems intent on destroying itself. – Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly, Jul 9, 2010

Rotten: Never has such a big, dumb movie seemed so small, as it shrinks from Blade Runner sharp to Jetsonian junky. – Susan Wloszczyna, USA Today, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: A thunderous, unoriginal futuristic hardware show for teenage boys. – Todd McCarthy, Variety, Jul 9, 2010

I love this movie!! I AM THE LAW!!! PLEASE LET ME BUY IT!!!!

Still Awesome!! Fun action/comedy with just a hint of social commentary

This Judge Dredd is first and formost a campy action/comedy - a very good one. Comparing it, as some have, with the newer Dredd 3D, a gritty dystopian action/drama, is like comparing apples and oranges. Stallones Judge Dredd is intentionally over the top in places. Having said that, contrary to some professional reviews I've read, it's rarely dumb. In fact, there are places that show unexpected depth. Specifically:

1) While it's not Shakespeare, the characters grow over the course of the film. Revelations are made, world views are challenged and resolved.

2) There's an engaging and charismatic villian. Armand Assante is fantastic as bad Judge Rico. The character has layers. He can be menacing or sad or charming depending on his mood. He has a backstory, and a relationship to Dredd that you may not see coming (See point 1). He's also the kind of villian that likes thoughtful monologue inbetween psychotic rages.

Also contributing to the awesomeness:

a) Large killer robot, cannibal mutants
b) Joan Chen - She's really deserves more lines that she was given but she does eye-candy pretty well too.
c) Max von Sydow being all wise and avuncular. Judge Dredd has a conscience and it's name is Max von Sydow.

And did I mention the HUMOR? The film is genuinely funny in places and I'm not just talking about comedian Rob Schneider. At the same time, there's enough fighting and gunplay that it never gets TOO silly.

Overall it's a really good blend of action and comedy where the two complement each other rather than competing for the audiences attention. I highly recommend Judge Dredd.
