I just rented this from redbox and it was a pretty decent movie, 3d was good for the scenes that make sense for 3d.
I would hold off on getting it because it will be much cheaper before long.
This isnt like most 3d movies that have a special 3d edition, they only made one blu ray version and it has 2d/3d on it.
Because of this, the price will have to go down because most people dont want to pay $20 for a bluray, and the market for 2d blurays is WAY bigger than for 3d blurays.
I'll get this at gohastings in a year for $8

|Xriderbc||Isn't this version of Dredd closer to the actual comic book character vs. Stalone? (I happen to like the Stalone version too however. Campy, but fun.) Liked this one too however. Simple plot, but fun to watch. Not full of sterotypical blow em up plot devices like most mindless action flicks of late.|

then when they get there dredd says, "when do you think the last time a judge came to peach trees!?" rookie mistake.
or the philisophical message of that she was from the slums and she wanted to help the ppl there b/c "i grew up in the slums, they're good people just trying to make it in the world just like everyone else." I use to be apart of a buddhist temple that went into Cabrini Greens a notorious public housing building in chicago that housed drug dealers, prostitutes and leeches on society. but those dozen or so, didn't speak for the hundreds that were really "just trying to make it in the world." real world shiet.

Its total pulp and full of plot holes but it makes a great background filler sort of thing for sat morning house cleaning time etc.
I liked the 3d but be warned its very mild and little to no gimmicky popout. That's how I like it though...

|dkeat||Have my redbox rental waiting for me after work. Would love to see Redbox start to carry 3D blurays that have the 2D version on the same disc. That would probably make it more affordable and defeat the less-space-in-the-machine argument against carrying 3D.|

just saw it last night off redbox with that free monthly code.
Thought it was a low budget film and reminded me too much of robocop morphing it with that one game where they shoot zombies in buildings and morphing it with any other dinky scary movie that takes place in a hotel and the people there are infested with a virus.
When the whole movie takes place in one spot or location, it is a low budget and boring movie.
The villain is a chick? and here, I thought the rookie was going to fight the villain for a female on female combat action. Never happened. Will not watch it again. Plot is the same ol memo. We go in to flush out them druggies like any other narc's plot.
You guys really have bad taste in movies.

|rafaelpr||Add me to the list of people that weren't expecting much and thought it was pretty good. I rented it but am thinking of buying it so I can see it in 3-d.|

|ohnims||This movie was better than what I had expected. Not so much so that I would own a copy, but definitely worth seeing.|

This is a great movie! Hope they make another one. I watched on a 47 LG passive TV and the 3D was pretty awesome. I bet on your TV it will be sick since active is full resolution! They have a drug in the movie called SLOW MO so there are scenes where they show you through the eyes of a "drug user on slow mo" and it's pretty amazing. Probably one of the better 3D movies I have seen, Avatar still being the best.

Great flick. For the haters, this is probably more up your alley.

I'll be honest I thought the plot/story for the original was better than this version (keep in mind, I also liked the original Total Recall better than the remake with Collin Farrell); however, I did enjoy this movie as well in a ... shut-the-brain-off-and-watch-heads-pop kinda way. It felt like they just took the Judge Dredd character from the first movie, removed all higher-level cognitive functions so he's basically a machine and let him loose.That being said, the head popping? I enjoyed that...but that's pretty much as subjective as it gets.
I have no idea if they'll ever do this but if somehow they decide to do a Blu-ray double pack with the original movie and this new one with 3D and the UV code: I would gladly pay $20 for both...but that may just be wishful thinking.

|Arcticat||I can't believe the positive reviews of this movie! The Stallone version is a classic, this is a B- movie, looks like it was lit by someone holding a bright shop light. The main character looked, moved and spoke like he flunked out of acting school, it is the only movie that I ever sold immediately after watching it. All 6 people in the room felt the same way, the only reason we didn't shut it off was that it made you keep watching because you couldn't believe how bad it was.|
