Cheapy wasn't exaggerating.

Watched it tonight as per his suggestion and it was just as he said, non stop action. Was an overload of action actually, it was so much that by the end I became desensitized to beat downs and now will find other movies pale in comparison. I haven't said WOW! so many times to a martial arts movie since watching Ong Bak the first time around, this one pushed the envelope even further and added in a whole lot more violence.

Good stuff!

I concur, this movie was totally sweet. I can't remember the last film I saw where the action was this balls-to-the-wall and downright brutal. It starts as a war movie and ends as a martial arts fighter. Loved every second. Even the terrible story. 10/10

How is Dredd compared to The Raid: Redemption?

Ah, my friend. You've brought the Big Macs, and the fries.
The donuts, my friend. Did you bring the donuts?
Donuts. Give me the donuts.
Where are the donuts? You FOOL!

You can see the influences in Dredd. Both movies are good, I watched the Raid on a flight. Loved the fight scenes, any other suggestions for movies like that?
