Movie Review: Dredd

Today I am going to give my movie review of the movie Dredd which stars Karl Urban. This movie takes place in a city in the future (which probably explains why they cast Urban because Ben Rural's name did not fit the role). In this future city, the police not only do the work of policemen, but also dispense justice and even executions. Dredd is a good judge, and does his work conscientiously. Most of the humans are clustered in large buildings, and there are a lot of problems in those areas--just as in today's cities. There are gangs who want to take over, and one of these gangs have invented a new drug that severely alters consiousness. Dredd, along with a rookie who happens to be psychic go to one of these areas to deal with multiple homicides, and in doing so, end up being targeted by the gang. I did not expect this to be a good movie, but it was better than I thought it would be. Of course, there was a serious lack of dogs, and I doubt that a dog would want to be cast in the movie anyway since it is one of those action packed movies that we dogs don't tend to like as much. I give this movie 4 paws up and a tail wag which is about a 7 out of 10 on the human movie scale. If you like science fiction, action type movies, you will probably enjoy this movie so I would recommend it. However, it will never be up the the quality of a movie like Snow Dogs or Eight Below--movies starring Siberian Huskies like myself. However, when you star humans, you can't expect to get as good a movie! Demon Flash Bandit (Movie Critic)
