A dystopian exercise in video game violence and 3D excess, this reboot of a franchise I never much liked in the first place manages the seemingly impossible feat of exorcising any semblance of charm from Karl Urban as the titular arbiter of justice. DREDD is worse than ugly; it’s pointless.
(NOTE: I confess this review is based only on the first 57 minutes of the film. I stopped watching after that point. Because I hated it that much.)
