Same here, she looks so beautiful with Blonde hair.

The same with me. Something about thirlby that made her more attractive in Dredd than usual.

Worthington moved to Australia when he was a toddler so he probably just read the comics as a kid in Australia like Karl Urban did in New Zealand.

I agree about lacking a good villain Ma-Ma wasn't particularly memorable. Perhaps they should of used the Angel Gang again.

Lena Headey was great as Mama, and she was so ruthless, yet tragic. I thought she was a great villain.

Nope, looks like a few people. I remember when she was cast I looked up pictures of her and just didnt find her attractive, yet in the movie I think I slowly fell in love with her!

That sounds the most likely, lets hope he can get something moving on the RT movie. In a dream world, we would get a Dredd sequel and a Rogue Trooper movie by 2016.

Saw it last night and was pleasantly surprised, I wasn't really impressed by the trailers and have never followed the character, but Travis used his budget well to create a suitably grimy future world, set the movie up simply and effectively, kept things tight and shot some badass action.

The film is essentially The Raid remixed but that is ideal given the budget and the premise is used to full effect. I don't know how close to the comics Urban's Dredd was but I enjoyed the mix of stoic badass and sarcastic humour. Likewise I thought Olivia Thirlby was fantastic and the heartbeat of the film.

Mama was a decent choice of villain for this premise and budget, I found the character creepy and viscous and I thought Lena Heady did a good job with her screen-time, plus I dug the twist with the corrupt Judges.

All in all good stuff, hopefully there will be a sequel.

8/10

I saw this a couple days ago and I really liked it. Acting was cool, action was awesome, and the characters themselves were really interesting to watch.

It sucks that this didnt make more money in theaters because I really want a sequel. 8/10

Then people need to hit the DVD hard. Maybe there's a slight chance it'll peak the interest of big distributors who are more willing to take a risk.

Urban nailed Judge Dredd.

Considering Dredd's failure due to it's lack of budget and advertising I've been thinking about something a lot - there are actors with stroke out there who claim to be die-hard fans of 2000AD and various directors over the years (who have enough stroke to get films of theirs funded with budgets bigger than Dredd's) swiping 2000AD's themes, tones and visuals for years. Why don't all these people have more of an influence in getting a big bucks 2000AD off the ground?

Surely as fans they would want to see the films done well too? Surely as fans they would have as much faith as we do that if they were done right they could be real box-office successes?

Actually I found this out a few days ago. The guys that wrote The Raid read the script of Dredd that was leaked quite a few years ago, and really copied off of Dredd's script. I had no idea of that until a bit ago. So really it's the other way around. Dredd was just released and finished later.

But to me this was a surprisingly great film, and I think will become a cult classic.

8.8/10 for me.

Robocop was influenced by Judge Dredd as well

Still, The Raid was a lot more entertaining than Dredd, which was fairly boring, and forgot to include satire.

I also thought Olivia Thirlby was incredibly hot in this. Then I watched press interviews, still great looking but not the same.

I enjoyed Dredd a helluva lot more than I did The Raid. I liked The Raid but I don't understand the level of praise it got. To me, it was a fairly standard martial arts movie with a Donkey Kong plot. I didn't feel like I was seeing some sort of revolution in the genre.

I remember when I saw Tony Jaa for the first time, that felt special, didn't get that feeling with the fights in The Raid. The Mad Dog stuff was intense but...meh.

But I don't see why Dredd needed any. It didn't take itself too seriously. It was raw and very adult, but you could tell the cheesy one-liners were just simply cheesy one-liners. I don't satire was all that necessary.

That is interesting, I wonder why the Dredd makers didn't complain given how blatant the copy is.

Yeah I think the movie will fall into the cult category which is a shame as I'd like a sequel with an expanded budget.

I found The Raid underwhelming as well, it's a decent action flick but gets very repetitive and is not amongst the true Asian classics IMO.
