Dredd is fan-
ing-tastic (mixed reviews for Dredd? Last I saw it was critically praised). I Will say the advertising for the film was God awful to the point where I was going to call it a Raid knock off after reading the synopsis, but seeing the film was a different experience altogether. So outside of people trapped in a building and working their way to the top, there's nothing similar about the films. The Raid feels like the next step from Tony Jaa films like Ong Bak, while Dredd is a film that feels like it harkens to the day of 80's action films like Robocop where the violence is over the top and filled with dark humor. I Kind of think of it as the sort of movie people like Arnold and Stallone wish they could make at their age.
Total Recall remake though is god
