What a nice surprise Pete Travis' Dredd turned out to be. An ultra-violent, pacey comic book actioner which at times made me think of Carpenter's classic Escape from New York, and has probably the best 3D I have ever seen. Have not been a fan of the overused format in recent years, but Dredd is one film which I think must be seen in 3D to fully appreciate the terrific sense of visual flair on display. A real trip of a film and I dare say likely to become something of a stoner cult classic.
