Re: Dredd - Grade, Review, Discuss, Spoilers

Finally saw this on blu-ray, and damn, that was a pretty kickass movie. I don't know much of anything about Judge Dredd, but the execution was so damn good it didn't really matter. The direction and score were fantastic, and with all the brutal violence and exploding heads it almost had the feel of another Robocop.

The only small complaint I have is that Dredd didn't do anything in this but... shoot people. Maybe it wouldn't have stood out as much before, but after already watching The Raid, with all it's amazing and elaborate fight scenes, I couldn't help but notice it now (hell, even Robo punched a couple people now and then!)

Shame the movie bombed at the box office and probably won't get a sequel now (although to be fair the trailers DID make it look pretty shitty and generic).
