Flash Review: Dredd [2012]

Even though Judge Dredd (Karl Urban) struck me as Christian Bale’s Batman meets Grumpy Cat, thus never letting me take him seriously, and despite the fact that it battles some minor pace issues (how can a 90-minute action movie feel long?), Dredd is an improvement over the similarly-themed The Raid. Inventive action, great performances by Olivia Thirlby, Lena Headey and Domnhall Gleeson, as well as stunning visuals (especially during the Slo-Mo scenes) are certainly worth the price of admission (or rental fee). Blu-Ray was invented for films like this.
