Added DiffLines:

* ArtisticLicenseGunSafety: Averted. The cast shows surprisingly consistent firearms safety throughout, namely in keeping their fingers off the triggers and not randomly waving their guns around. In fact, when Dredd is going through Ma-Ma's drug lab, you can see him take his finger off the trigger when he has no targets.

* LeaveNoSurvivors: Attempted murder of a Judge carries the death penalty. Judges can carry out sentencing for crimes on the spot. This infers Judges the right to execute almost anyone who participated in a shootout against them. Even if the perp is wounded and helpless.

** In the film's final confrontation, Anderson takes a round from a crook, and if you watch closely you can actually see the bullet deflect off her armor and ricochet into the wall next to her. However, she is winded and disoriented by the impact and knocked to the ground; as seen by the initial bust, by contrast, Dredd can take a round and keep moving, owing to the size and muscle difference between him and Anderson, coupled with the strong likelihood he's taken hits before and learned to absorb the impact.

* ImpossiblyCoolWeapon: Lawgivers, the standard sidearm of a Judge. Looks like a HandCannon, sounds like the breath of God, and fires an assortment of ammunition for a variety of devastating effects.

* SkyscraperCity: Mega-City One. There several very large sky scrapers referred to as blocks seen in One is an exaggerated version of this; there are the exterior shots basic buildings, modern skyscrapers a couple dozen stories high, and horizon-dominating "mega blocks" each hundreds of the movie.feet wide and hundreds of ''stories'' high.

** This is part of Ma-Ma's trademark violence. She uses a set of three ''Gatling guns'' to absolutely shred an entire level of the block. This actually ends up as a plot point, [[spoiler:as Dredd realizes no one would go to such lengths to kill a Judge unless they had something big to protect.]] Additionally, [[spoiler:it wrecks a lot of her hacker's connections and ''blows a hole in the side of the building'', enabling the Judges to re-connect with MissionControl]].

** Dredd uses a hi-ex round to blow up an opponent's head, because that was [[OneBulletLeft the only round left in his gun]].



* TranquilFury: Based on Anderson's psychic probe, Dredd is made up of this.

Added DiffLines:

* GunpointBanter: Justified; the two people talking are behind cover and maneuvering for a shot at each other, while a third gunman who isn't talking is working his way around Dredd's flank while his partner is holding Dredd's attention.

* MeaningfulEcho: "Are you ready?" Dredd asks this of Anderson three times. The first two, he looks at her sceptically or adds that she doesn't look ready. Third time, after she's gained his respect, he amends the statement.
