I missed the recent Dredd while it was in theaters, and I will have to catch it when it is available for rental. It certainly looked like a much more faithful adaptation of the character in comparison to the Sylvester Stallone film. One thing that kept me from seeing this is the highly stylized gore and violence that I saw in some of the clips. I know that is in keeping with the printed stories, but I don't enjoy watching lots of blood on screen - which coincidentally killed my enjoyment of the most recent Punisher film. I'll still check it out as I am a fan of the character and Karl Urban... plus I feel a strong urge to support any comic book film where the hero not only wears his helmet but keeps it on the whole time!
