In the future, America is a dystopian wasteland. The latest scourge is Ma-Ma, a prostitute-turned-drug pusher with a dangerous new drug and aims to take over the city. The only possibility of stopping her is an elite group of urban police called Judges, who combine the duties of judge, jury and executioner to deliver a brutal brand of swift justice. But even the top-ranking Judge, Dredd, discovers that taking down Ma-Ma isnít as easy as it seems...
It has a middling review score in the 70s range, it's about glorifying legal execution, it's FULLA DRUGS, and it even has that gore thing I don't like.
I feel such a controversial movie deserves a controversial opinion:
HEY! IT'S THE GOOD RAID MOVIE!
Yeah **** that crap, THIS movie has personality.
Surprisingly enough, 2012's Dredd features a far less convoluted plot than the framed-for-murder plot of the Stallone film, instead settling on a very simple variation on the old Die Hard plot.
