For me, it's the best comic book movie of the year. That's not to say I didn't enjoy The Avengers but watching Dredd made me feel ten years old again, reading Joe's stories in the pages of 2000AD. It felt... illicit. There's no origin story. The film sets it stock out from the first frame and never lets up. Karl Urban and screenwriter/producer Alex Garland really get what makes Dredd tick and it shows. Fingers crossed they get to make their proposed sequel/s.
