Dredd is undoubtedly an amazing movie. One I could watch over and over again, and let it blow my mind, then show it to other people and have it blow their mind. It is such a shame that it was a box office failure and that we won't be getting the Dredd 2 everyone wants when something like Resident Evil and Alvin and the Chipmunks keep getting sequels. While some might compare Dredd to The Raid, I prefer Dredd because although The Raid may have better action, Dredd has excellant production values, gorgeously filmed action, and a bad$#@ main character. Speaking of main character, that and the story are the area where some may have a problem with this movie. To put it simply, there is absolutely no substance. You don't care for Judge Dredd other then the fact that he is the good guy, and the movie even refrains from characterizing his partner. It is explicitly a style over substance movie. But what propels this up to 5 stars is the fact that this movie would suck if it humanized any of the characters and Dredd is already an awesome protagonist. Honestly, this is the perfect modern action movie that dosen't have any shaky cam, or fast editing. I would call it the perfect hangout movie to pop in when your friends are here and you'll all have an awesome time with all of what was mentioned above, the awesome slo-mo drug trip sequences, and a ruthless villain. As for inappropriate stuff, there is a LOT of blood, and the practical effects make it seem more realistic(examples include heads exploding/limbs lost). Also, there's a lot of bad language like the f-word, but it's not nearly as bad as some other action movies. For sex, there's one brief psychic dream sequence of a convict raping one of the Judges, but it's short, and it dosen't show all that much (I.E. breasts). As for role models, the two main judges stand for good, but do kill, while some other Judges are evil and kill innocents. Overall, if Dredd could be described in one word, it would be, "Awesome"
