Hollywood Reporter - 09/02/2012
"[The movie] constantly impresses on a visual level, with a gritty style more akin to cult hits like DISTRICT 9 or 28 DAYS LATER than to standard Hollywood comic-book blockbusters."
Total Film - 10/01/2012 3 stars out of 5 -- "DREDD gets to lean hard on the slo-mo button, letting blood, water droplets and broken glass shiver beautifully in stereoscopic space."
Entertainment Weekly - 09/28/2012
"Director of photography Anthony Dod Mantle creates an evocative dirty-neon future world." -- Grade: B+
Sight and Sound - 10/01/2012
"The film eschews the customary origin story in favour of immersion. We don't know why Dredd is as he is, nor why Mega-City One is as it is, and it's something of a relief..."
Box Office - 09/15/2012 3 stars out of 5 -- "[T]he stylish sci-fi film makes some eye-popping and unexpected choices that add up to one heck of a fun film."
