    it was a great reboot compared to the previous attempt to bring Dredd to the masses. The grittiness and the feel of this movie is equal to that the reader gets when immersed in the inked pages of Mega City One and it's best law giving judge.

    Magnificent movie. Brutal, fast and somewhat emotional soft but not pathetic. Short dialogues, smart story.... Brilliant action movie, much better than stupid Korean Redmption. If you\'re looking for good \'old-school\' action movie - enjoy in this masterpiece. Stallone, cover it with your ears.
