Horror Movies & Sci-Fi Movies Database
In the vast, post-apocalyptic metropolis of Mega City One on America's east coast, the only law is provided by the Judges of the Hall of Justice - cops with the power of judge, jury and executioner. Most feared among these law-keepers is the ruthless and implacable Judge Dredd (Karl Urban). More and more of the inhabitants of Mega City One are addicted to a drug that alters the brain's perception of time: Slo-Mo. While assigned to train and evaluate Cadet Judge Cassandra Anderson (Olivia Thirlby), Dredd is called to instigate a crime in Peach Trees, the notorious high-rise slum tower controlled by former prostitute-turned-drug-lord, Ma-Ma (Lena Headey) and her clan. The Judges capture one of the clan's senior members and Ma-Ma locks down the tower, leaving Dredd and Anderson with a choice: escape the slum with their prisoner or climb to the top of the tower to capture Ma-Ma and judge her as well.

More Movie Taglines:
- Duncan Jones was offered the film, but turned it down, not because he didn't like the Alex Garland script (Jones said it was great), but because he had such a strong idea of what he wanted to do with a Dredd movie, that he felt he could not bring himself to take it on and not do it his way.
Unlike the previous Judge Dredd movie, Karl Urban has confirmed that the helmet will never come off to keep true to the comic book character.
Michael Biehn auditioned for the lead role.
The Peach Tree block is named after a restaurant in Shrewsbury, the place where screenwriter Alex Garland and Judge Dredd creator John Wagner first met to discuss the film.
Judge Joe Dredd is a fictional character whose comic strip in the British science fiction anthology 2000 AD is the magazine's longest running, having been featured there since its second issue in 1977. Dredd is a law enforcement officer in a violent North American city of the future where uniformed Judges combine the powers of police, judge, jury and executioner. Dredd and his fellow Judges are empowered to arrest, sentence, and even execute criminals on the spot. The character was created by writer John Wagner and artist Carlos Ezquerra, although editor Pat Mills also deserves some credit for early development.
