Dredd (7/10)

There are hints of The Terminator (the first one) and Robocop in this but it doesn’t quite rise to the level of those movies. The plot is simple and it gets right into the action, skipping (I think very much intentionally) any deep character development or world building. This is all about the finely crafted slow-mo, over-the-top violence. Sure, the Judge is invincible and never misses, but the battles didn’t feel as staged and clean as in John Wick, giving it a bit more tension and keeping me interested until the end.
