I was shocked to see that as well. I think the theaters have been soft lately. I am incredibility disappointed in that as it is a great movie and I would have loved some sequels. :BOOM:

I suppose as long as it gets a good DVD/Bluray treatment that will keep me going for a long time. I will have to shelve it next to Firefly and Serenity... :-(

I saw it a few days ago in 3D. It was decent.

It was action packed enough, but I still find myself liking the Sylvester film better, despite Rob Schneider's goofy-ass character being in it.

I finally got to see it, and honestly, I was a bit disappointed. The action was good, the setting was good, but the story and Dredd seemed too plain. I actually ended up liking the rookie more by the end. The Stallone version was over the top in some aspects, but it was more entertaining. I did like the music in the new one better I still recommend it, if you have nothing to do on an afternoon.

That's why I think I liked Stallone's version better. I wanted to be entertained at the movie theater, not watch social commentary, no matter how far fetched it is. I do agree on 1 point the writer makes, about 10 minutes in, I thought "Damn, I'm watching a remake of RoboCop!" Which is ironic, considering that movie is getting a remake as well.

Amusingly that's why I like Urban's Dredd better: I wanted a little "meat" in the back of my mind. But I understand why you would pick Stallone's. I have a couple of 'guilty pleasure' movies as well were I watch them just for some off the hook entertainment without having to over think it. :grin:

Either way I'm getting the blu ray when it comes out...

Add me to those that are a bit surprised this hasn't done better at the theater. Decent reviews with a 76% at RottenTomatoes so for the people who value that how did they not go out? Then those who went cause they like comic movies or other reason have given it fairly good word of mouth such as here.

Just a bizarre turn, by all measurable rights this should be doing better....it deserves it, that's for sure.

I saw it again this weekend with my dad, in 3D this time. Still great. Criminal that more people aren't seeing it...
