Caught the non-3D showing of Dredd this past Wednesday evening with a couple friends. The movie is, in fact, better than I expected, a great violent action flick. The scifi elements are there, but kept mostly to the background, and stick to the canon quite elegantly. Rather than explore the (extensive) mythology of the world, they kept the action confined to a small scale with few characters and very little exposition. Everyone does a great job with their characters, the action keeps moving right through it. And let me also mention, if they don't start selling those jackets and boots from the movie, they are missing out. Catch it on the big screen.
Trailers tomorrow, because there was a whole bunch.
