Btw, it is a shame the movie bombed in the box office. I really liked it, as did the critics, but there is no hope for a sequel.
I thought it was terrible and regretted spending my money on it. I went into the movie knowing next to nothing about Dredd, and left the movie still knowing next to nothing about Dredd. The focus of the movie was too much on the chick who was in the middle of a herpes outbreak.
