"Dredd 3D" movie quotes take us along as the popular comic is adapted to the big screen in the British science fiction action film. Unlike the 1995 American film adaptation, "Judge Dredd,"
starring Sylvester Stallone,
the 2012 "Dredd 3D" has already received favorable reviews from critics and fans alike.
In "Dredd 3D," viewers are introduced to a futuristic land in which crime is prevalent and the streets ruled by chaos. Instead of a full judicial system like in America today, one group, the judges of the hall of justice, serves as the judge, jury and executioner to combat the urban areas. Judges however are few and far between which only helps the criminals and drug lords win.
In one urban area, Peach Trees, a new drug is sweeping the city, Slo-Mo. This mind-altering drug reduces the perception of time down to 1% of its normal speed and is becoming the biggest craze, much to the pleasure of drug lord Ma-Ma (Lena Headey
). That is until the title character, Judge Dredd (Karl Urban
), learns of this situation and pledges to take down Ma-Ma. Along with rookie Judge Cassandra Anderson (Olivia Thirlby
), Judge Dredd sets out on an epic battle between good and evil in an attempt to take down Ma-Ma and her league of clansmen.
"Dredd 3D" fits the mold of the blockbuster comic-inspired action movie that has become a familiar trend in recent years. If that's not your style there are plenty of other movies worth a watch lately including "Lawless," "Cosmopolis," "Premium Rush," "Hit and Run," "ParaNorman," "Sparkle," "The Expendables 2"
and "The Odd Life of Timothy Green."
