Those are the words that define the job of a Judge from the Hall of Justice in the screwed up future metropolis of Mega-City One. Enter Judge Dredd (Karl Urban).

Olivia Thrilby as Judge Anderson Search for feature articles ‘Dredd’ has an incredible visual style. Shot in 3D using high speed digital cameras, the film often delves into a rather breath-taking mix of multi-dimensional blood splattering violence and slow motion when the drugs are involved... lending the movie a very distinct and unique visual look. Yes, if you took that last statement in, youd realize that ‘Dredd’ is in fact, a pretty violent movie. Violent in a cartoony stylized way, not in a graphic machete cutting arms off manner... but definitely deserving of a hard R rating. Depending on your tolerance for graphic violence, it may or may not bother on mindless violence. With all that being said, the violence does drive home the point that Mega-City One is a crime- riddled society within a post-apocalyptic world. The only significant weakness of ‘Dredd’ would be its lack of a major action set piece in the film... but it more than makes up for it with its constant barrage of shoot outs and explosions throughout Dredd and Andersons ascent to the 200th storey. Volume sure makes a difference here. All the bells and whistles where the films special effects and technologies are all good, but perhaps where ‘Dredd’ truly excels is where the previous film completely failed. Older and slightly more grizzled movie goers will no doubt remember the 1995 movie, ‘Judge Dredd’ where Sylvester Stallone committed the cardinal sin of being seen without Dredds helmet. And while it may seem like only a surface mistake, the problems with Slys portrayal run much deeper than that. Stallones Dredd was portrayed as almost too heroic. In ‘Dredd’, fans finally get the faithful portrayal of Judge Dredd theyve been waiting for all along. Besides not ever being seen without his helmet on, Karl Urbans performance correctly captures the essence of the character. Dredd isnt a hero. Instead, hes just a man doing his part in an insane world where laws are broken by the minute. To enforce the law, he draws a clear line between the black and the white. Page 2 of 4
  3. 3. ‘Dredd 3D’: Judgement = Awesome - Singapore Movies - Movies 2/15/13 5:40 PM Urban emotes with just his chin visible If you thought Tom Hardys performance as Bane earlier this year was pretty impressive for a guy in a mask, Urban emotes with just his chin visible. The result is a mix of scowls, grunts, deadpan one liners and self-satirizing humour with one constant – its incredibly badass all throughout the entirety of the film. Dredd is almost like an “anti-character” - he doesnt change much at all, Judge Anderson serves as the emotional centre of the film and as a great counterpoint towards Dredd. Unlike Dredd, Anderson operates in the grey area. She hesitates to enforce the law, as being psychic lets her know the other side of the story. Its a stark contrast between the two, and it works very well as Dredds blunt humour and Andersons vulnerability mesh together very well on screen. In an era filled with comic book movie adaptations, ‘Dredd’ is a refreshing breath of air. Violent and gritty, this film has shown that its entirely possible to make a good comic book movie with a “R” rating and that alone is a triumph in faithfulness in itself. Armed with a sombre and mature tone, ‘Dredd’ will transport you to a future (which looks very good) where crime doesnt lend itself to a good negotiating position. ‘Dredd’ opens in theatres 20 September 2012 Dexian or just Dex if you have an inability to pronounce Chinese names, is a fervent film lover whos known to read up on the most inane pieces of cinema trivia just so he has something to talk about when hes drunk. When hes not watching something, he can be found reading other useless Wikipedia articles on things like Nebulaphobia.
