        If audiences found Judge Dredd (1995) too campy and cartoonish in its portrayal of the violent comic book hero, Dredd (2012) heavily overcompensated. The violence level was increased to the point that it felt more like carnage than action, and it was all done with stunning 3D visuals. Even without the 3D (which is available on the Blu-ray disc included in the package), the 4K Ultra HD presentation is among the most impressive I have seen. The only problem is that some of these spectacular visual effects are so horrendously violent that it may be difficult to enjoy how good it looks.
