Today, Karl Urban takes back Judge Dredd for all of those who knew the swift-justice hero in his comic book form and delivers "Dredd 3D," an ultra-violent, video game cut scene that entertains, shocks, and stays faithful to the masked man.

Karl Urban: Best Chin Actor
It's a sad symptom of modern comic book movies that if a big star plays a character who wears a mask, they still manage to find way too much face time. That is not a problem for Karl Urban and Judge Dredd, who stays in his helmet for the entire movie, but there is a reason most heroes lose their cover at some point. It makes acting really difficult, yet Urban brings Dredd to life in a way that may not be complex, but is entertaining as hell.
