Review: DREDD

In a violent, futuristic city where the police have the authority to act as judge, jury and executioner, a cop teams with a trainee to take down a gang that deals the reality-altering drug, SLO-MO.

It’s rare that the remake is better then the original, and the original starred Sylvester Stallone, but this one did, it outdid the original Judge Dredd and left it to be forgotten. In this movie Karl Urban was a man of few words, it was pure action on his part, and what little you can see of his face, said it all about Judge Dredd, he played the part perfectly. The story is clear Judge Dredd entered the most crime ridden location in Mega City, Peach Trees, and when he goes in all hell breaks loose and Judge Dredd does what he does best, Judge, Jury, and Executionar. The perfect type of movie, a solid story line, great bad guys, and action that just wouldn’t stop. One hell of a movie and this one did Judge Dredd Justice, I’m hoping for another one because this one ended on an high note.

Review: RED – Retired & Extremely Dangerous

When his idyllic life is threatened by a high-tech assassin, former black-ops agent Frank Moses reassembles his old team in a last ditch effort to survive. They must use all of their collective cunning, experience and teamwork to stay one step ahead of their deadly pursuers and stay alive.

I wasn’t expecting the movie to be this good, it turned out to be even better then expected. Packing a long list of A-List actors; Bruce Willis, Morgan Freeman, Mary-Louise Parker (From the show Weeds), John Malkovich, Helen Mirren, Morgan Freeman, Karl Urban, and Brian Cox (Bad Guy from XMen2). This movie was a great combination of action and comedy, Bruce Willis played the cool spy while Malkovich played the insane guy who wants to shoot and blow things up, I really loved Malkovich’s character in this movie, he was the perfect comic relief. All the actors complemented each other and Mary-Louise Parker played the Willis’s clueless love intrest perfectly, they all fit their characters and came together perfectly. If you are looking for a good action film with a touch of comedy then this is on your list.
