Ugh, the Judge Dredd remake? Really? I saw that just this week and I thought it was fucking terrible.

I understand they had a small budget and couldn't do much visually, but the world Dredd lives in is as big a 'character' as Dredd himself. Just ignoring the world and putting the whole movie in a concrete tower that looks nothing like the Dredd world is just a cop-out.

And then the entire movie is basically nothing but Dredd shooting people in bad-quality CGI slow-motion, instituted by a drug that would work exactly opposite to how everybody says it works, revolving around a fucking ridiculous premise that Dredd executes every criminal he ever sees, but the one black dude he can't execute because they "only" have 99% surety against him and thus they drag him along with them to kickstart their "plot."

And then the myriad plot holes, of which I think my favorite one was when they get outside on the helipad, and Justice somehow can't get an evac chopper to them in time, even though they were shown to be flying around the building. That or the "Yeah, I need to shut the building down for REASONS, is that okay?" And Central replies with "Yeah, shut it down while we have two Judges in there and we know it's a hideout for one of the most violent and criminal gangs in the city. And then when other judges come knocking at the door, we'll be fine if you just tell us to wait."

God what an appalling piece of shit movie.
