I was sceptical about this new remake or reboot or whatever. I remember well the old film with S. Stallone and I liked it much, that's why I decided not to watch this new "parody" as I thought. By accident I found an Angry Joe show review of DREDD and it appeared that the new film is much closer to the original comic books than the old one, so I gave it a chance to see how it should be, 'cause I don't know about the comic books.
Ok, so this movie is quite ok. Not boring, keeping a needed tension to be a proper action movie. I look forward to the continuation. Some aspects are still inferior for me when comparing it to the old film. This one lacks "epicness" or something like that. The whole thing happens in one close quarters setting. There are no fantastic things like battle androids or flying cars, although I don't know if they should be in the comic books about Dredd.
