A more faithful adaptation of the Dredd comic-books than the Stallone film.

That doesn't mean it hasn't borrowed generously from two other similarly themed works - the film The Raid: Redemption, and the game Max Payne. That being said, I prefer The Raid a bit more, because of the raw, gritty and ruthless nature of the action in it. But, Dredd is dotted with some excellent, gorific action sequences, it's pretty solid in it's own right. But for someone who's already seen The Raid and appreciated it for what it is, Dredd comes in at #2.

Great entertainment though. This one, and Punisher:War Zone could be bundled in together for a nice, action-packed double bill watch.
