This 2012 action-packed sci-fi adventure is back on Netflix and back on the charts. It’s hard to keep a good comic book adaptation down, and that’s why people are going gaga for a chance to rewatch Dredd this week.
Rotten Tomatoes Synopsis
“Mega City One is a vast, violent metropolis where felons rule the streets. The only law lies with cops called “judges,” who act as judge, jury, and executioner, and Dredd (Karl Urban) is one of the city’s most feared. One day, Dredd is partnered with Cassandra (Olivia Thirlby), a rookie with powerful psychic abilities. A report of a terrible crime sends Dredd and Cassandra to a dangerous area controlled by Ma-Ma (Lena Headey), a drug lord who will stop at nothing to protect her empire.”
Dredd was directed by Pete Travis. The screenplay was written by Alex Garland. The movie is based on the Judge Dredd comics created by John Wagner and Carlos Ezquerra. The film stars Karl Urban, Olivia Thirlby, Wood Harris, Lena Headey, and Domhnall Gleeson.
