Dredd 3D

By tt stern-enzi · September 20th, 2012 · Movie Previews
Not quite a remake or a reboot, director Pete Travis (Vantage Point) grabs the reins of Dredd 3D taking the graphic novel character of Judge Dredd (Karl Urban), familiar to moviegoers thanks to an earlier incarnation by Sylvester Stallone during his action-oriented prime, and reconfigures him to meet our lawless times.

In the future, the police are judge, jury and executioners of the law, so when a drug gang takes over a high-rise, it is up to Dredd and a rookie (Olivia Thirlby) to mete out justice. Urban and Thirlby offer the promise of characters audiences might feel compelled to ride along with, which could guarantee that we should expect repeat performances in Dredd’s future. Opens wide Sept. 21. (R) Not screened for review
