Welcome back to Clean Slate, the safe haven for all things deserving of a second chance. On this edition of Clean Slate, we stayed up late to hit the midnight showing of Dredd 3D to see if all the hype is true. Let me just put it this way, not since The Matrix has a movie raised the bar on the action genre, while at the same time, restored your faith in the dying breed of rated-R action flicks. From the start of the credits until the last words scroll off of the screen, Dredd 3D delivers a fast paced, adrenaline rush of nostalgic action in the vein of Robocop, Predator and Commando. This movie just may make mainstream of soft audiences piss themselves from the visual onslaught of 80′s-era firepower. This is not your Sly Stalone Dredd. Oh no, this is another beast all unto its own. Don’t believe me? Don’t trust my judgment or my taste in action flicks? Well, strap up rookie, and be prepared to be judged by the new law in town.
