In the new movie Dredd there is a drug called Slo-Mo which is also a good name for this movie. I’m kidding…but I’m also totally not. This is a reboot from that terribly awesome Sylvester Stallone version that was lightly based off of the comic book which started a few years before I was born. Judge Dredd was a character that growing up I had seen but knew nothing about. This movie was a chance to get new viewers into the guy and his world and it failed. But there were some good things about it. In the future America is a giant wasteland that looks like Florida will in 2014 called the Cursed Earth.

In Mega-City one there are millions of people living piled on each other where Judges are the law. They have the ability to capture, judge, and execute people for their crimes. At the start Dredd played by Karl Urban chases down some guys high on the Slo-Mo drug where two of them die in a car wreck and he tracks down and kills the other using his magic gun. Its not really magic but however the judge tells it to shoot it will. Judge Dredd is assigned a trainee that had failed to become a Judge named Anderson played by Olivia Thirlby who is psychic.
