The Dredd wiki last edited by Deathpool10 on 06/05/15 07:14AM View full history

Somewhere off the eastern coast of America lies Mega City One, a vast violent metropolis, built on the ruins of the old world, where criminals rule the chaotic streets.

The only force of order lies with the Judges, a futuristic police force who possess the combined powers of judge, jury and executioner. Known and feared throughout the city, Dredd is the ultimate Judge, tasked with ridding the city of its latest scourge, a dangerous drug epidemic that has users of 'Slo-Mo' experiencing reality at a fraction of its normal speed.

Dredd is assigned to train and evaluate Cassandra Anderson, a rookie with powerful psychic abilities due to a genetic mutation. A heinous crime calls them to a neighborhood where fellow Judges rarely dare to venture, a 200-story vertical slum controlled by prostitute-turned-drug lord, Ma-Ma, and her ruthless clan.

When they capture one of the clan's inner circle, Ma-Ma overtakes the compound's control center and wages a brutal, vicious war against the Judges, stopping at nothing to protect her empire. With the body count climbing and no way out, Dredd and Anderson must confront the odds and engage in a relentless battle for their survival.

Official Synopsis

"DREDD takes us to the wild streets of Mega City One, the lone oasis of quasi-civilization on Cursed Earth. Judge Dredd (Karl Urban) is the most feared of elite Street Judges, with the power to enforce the law, sentence offenders and execute them on the spot – if necessary. The endlessly inventive mind of writer Alex Garland and the frenetic vision of director Peter Travis bring DREDD to life as a futuristic neo-noir action film that returns the celebrated character to the dark, visceral incarnation from John Wagner and Carlos Ezquerra’s revered comic strip."

It's time to be Judged. 0

I had a great night at the movies. I got to see a Dredd for free thanks to a friend from college who is an assistant manager at a Regal Cinemas nearby and I got to see a great film. First before I go on to my review of the film I need to tell you two things. First I'm not as big of a hater of Stallone's Dredd as others. I believe I gave the film 2.5 stars if I remember correctly. Stallone was not good as Dredd unless you use his acting performance as comedy. Armand Assante who I think is a real...

Dredd-fully Mindless, but Judgment is it’s Good Entertainment 0

This movie is not going to win Oscars but it is a perfectly excellent mindless action movie that is based on the immensely popular Judge Dredd comic strip from the 2000 AD British anthology comic series. Unlike the previous 1995 film starring Sylvester Stallone, Dredd is a much more faithful adaptation to the series although they did away with some trivial cosmetics to the uniforms to make it more workable and so they didn’t stab themselves while walking.Taking place in a post-apocalyptic ...
