Rambo: This remake had nothing special.simple story...dredd and a rookie caught in a tall building killing bad guys led by a weak female villain.the production is very low budget and Karl Urban doesn't really have the masculinity that Stallone had in brainless but fun 1995 version.
I give this one 5/10 and the 1995 version 7/10

cress: This ain't fucking Shakespeare, folks. If you want a brawny, ballsy, action-packed 90 minutes, this is your film. Very similar in structure to "Raid Redemption", it moves at a brisk pace with some great action sequences. Karl Urban nails it as Dredd. The visuals are well-done, and enjoyed myself immensely. Fuck Sly's version, which was cheesy horseshit. No cheddar to be found in this flick.

Rocksteddy: This film made my bones hurt, along with The Raid.
It really brought me back to the films I watched as a child, the films I remembered and familiarized with as an action flick. Scary villains along with a small, yet big idea, a badass hero, and cleverly toying with a psychic sidekick.
The violence was well acquainted with the plot, and the action (as well as the tone of the film) was gritty and intense. Every second felt like fun, yet I was pulled in by it's characters and tone. Loved every second of this flick, arguably one of the best films of 2012.
