Judgment is coming
Dredd (2012) is a sci-fi action movie set in America's post-apocalyptic wasteland.
Synopsis from IMDb: The future America is an irradiated waste land. On its East Coast, running from Boston to Washington DC, lies Mega-City One - a vast, violent metropolis where criminals rule the chaotic streets. The only force of order lies with the urban cops called "Judges" who possess the combined powers of judge, jury and instant executioner.
Known and feared throughout the city, Dredd (Karl Urban) is the ultimate Judge, challenged with ridding the city of its latest scourge - a dangerous drug epidemic that has users of "Slo-Mo" experiencing reality at a fraction of its normal speed. During a routine day on the job, Dredd is assigned to train and evaluate Cassandra Anderson (Olivia Thirlby), a rookie with powerful psychic abilities thanks to a genetic mutation.
A heinous crime calls them to a neighborhood where fellow Judges rarely dare to venture - a 200 storey vertical slum controlled by prostitute turned drug lord Ma-Ma (Lena Headey) and her ruthless clan...
Let me tell you three simple facts regarding why you must watch Dredd:
1. Don't mess with the Ma-Ma clan.
Ma-Ma. Remember her name. You will walk away from the cinema remembering her scarred face, haunted look, and ruthless charisma as the city's most fearsome criminal kingpin.
2. Impressive, ruthless key firing sequence.
I tell you, that sequence involving Ma-Ma and her clan in their attempt to kill Dredd and Anderson is jaw-dropping. Awesome! Not only so, there are a lot more action sequences that you should not miss!
3. The dreamy effects of the Slo-Mo narcotics.
Those haunting, hallucinating effects are so colorful and beautiful. But, when people got thrown down from high up, you will shudder at how such beautiful array of colors can be transformed into gore and sheer brutality within seconds. Superb!
Really, go watch Dredd!
