I was pretty skeptical about this movie. I didn’t really know what to expect because the whole Judge Dredd comic was unfamiliar for me. A friend of mine who lent this movie to me said she was surprised about how good it was. I was still sure I wouldn’t like it, because something about the cover hinted it was going to be dark and gloomy.
Turns out it actually was dark and gloomy, but in a surprisingly good way. I have a twisted mind when it comes to violence in movies. In some movies I love all the blood (e.g. Tarantino’s films), but most of the time I’m so lovey-dovey that I don’t realy care for people getting hurt. This movie was one of those films where the violence was needed and it wasn’t a problem for me. The story was interesting in a way and I totally fell in love with Karl Urban‘s (Judge Dredd) jaw.
I usually don’t really like 3D movies, because the 3D glasses are very uncomfortable to wear on top of my glasses, but I must say this movie made the pain worth it. The 3D effects used in this movie were amazing! If you have the chance you must watch it in 3D!
I give Dredd three thumbs up, but I will give one extra thumb for the 3D effects, which makes four in total!
I think the first Iron Man is still my favorite of the three. This third one is definitely my second favorite. I think I feel something similar towards these movies that I feel towards food. I like food in general and most food that I eat is good and it makes me happy. I like Robert Downey Jr. in general and everything he does seems to be good and he makes me happy.
I liked the movie and I’m planning to see it again, which means it wasn’t bad. But compared to Dredd this movie’s 3D effect were non-existent.
I give Iron Man 3 three and a half thumbs up!
