Re: Dredd - Grade, Review, Discuss, Spoilers

^Gotta disagree. The setting was awesome. It perfectly demonstrated a vertical slum of unimaginable proportions. Peach Trees WAS a whole city. Miles of narrow concrete hallways where one could get shot at any time just by someone poking around a corner and taking a potshot. It's contrasted by the atrium, an vast open space bigger than ANYTHING in ANY building actually built to date. It effectively portrayed the scale of the setting within the time allotted.

Many movies show mile-tall buildings as background. This is one of a handful that shows how insane of a scope just one building with 70,000+ occupants is.
