Set in the future, the world is depicted as nothing but a wasteland. Off an eastern coast lies Mega City One—a metropolis where criminals rule the streets and the only form of order is in a police force known as the "Judges." They hold the combined powers of judge, jury, and executioner.

Judge Dredd (Karl Urban) is a law enforcement officer who belongs to this elite corps. He is well-known and feared throughout the city as he faces the everyday challenge of getting rid of the latest scum. His latest assignment is to take down a gang at the heart of a dangerous drug epidemic called SLO-MO, which alters reality by making time feel like it's passing at a fraction of its real speed.

In order to stop the gang that is producing and dealing the drug, Dredd teams up with Anderson (Olivia Thirlby), a trainee with powerful psychic abilities. Together they learn that Ma-Ma (Lena Headey)—a prostitute turned drug lord— controls the ruthless clan and has waged a war against the Judges. What results is a vicious battle between Ma-Ma's clan and the Judges in a fight to the death.

  • 5 stars "Super cool movie from dirty post-post-apo future. Dredd is badass killing machine and that young female judge with a good heart and some nice portion of naivity is a good opposite to his coldhearted character. The work with camera is also very well done."
  • 5 stars "A dark, gritty masterpiece complete with the perfect amount of cheesy lines. Loved it."
  • 5 stars "Haha, people who dislike this movie are retards. This movie delivers on every promise. Badass hero - check, lame ass villains - check, no way this could be real - check. What more do you want? You didn't come to watch Good Will Hunting, did you?"
