DREDD is a simple, unashamed power fantasy devoid of pretension. Karl Urban spends 90 minutes blowing away crack-heads with surprisingly blatant violence. Olivia Thirbly, along for the ride as the audience surrogate, provides a human element to counter Urban's embodiment of draconian law. Though primarily entertainment, DREDD takes time to criticize the belief that justice and law are the same. It's good violent fun.
