In this version of reality the future of America is violent, run by criminals and police have the authority to act as judge, jury and executioner. This sequel is stimulated by bombastic violence and captivating special effects. There’s stomach-churning gore, intense action and epic cinematography.
Known and feared throughout the city, Dredd (played by Karl Urban) is the ultimate Judge, challenged with purging the city of a dangerous drug epidemic that has users of “Slo-Mo” experiencing reality at a fraction of its normal speed.
There’s gore, incredible special effects and intense action – and luckily it’s not just for guys. What also caught our eyes (despite the ample guts and blood) was the minimalistic, grimy styling. It’s urban, casual and raw and totally offsets the wasteland that this state of America has become. Needless to say the new Dredd 3D is a rare example of a remake that actually works.
Check it out this evening.
