Dredd

Dredd ★★★½

This was pretty overlooked huh?  I guess the people weren’t clamoring for a Judge Dredd remake starring Karl Urban but this has been on my watchlist forever because the word of mouth has been really good - not that I’ve ever actually heard a single person say anything about this movie.  But I’ve read some good things online and I’ll be damned if this wasn’t an absolute romp of bloody action perfection.  There’s not much meat to the story or to any of the characters here, but it’s so fun you’ll hardly notice.  Lena Headey gets a fun villainous role fresh off season one of Game of Thrones and she’s pretty good in this.  Karl Urban never even shows his face but he still does a fine job carrying this flick with his no nonsense cold-blooded performance.

Lots of fun.  A great mindless action flick.

7/10 (Highly Enjoyable)
