* BeautyIsNeverTarnished: Averted from before the film begins with Ma-Ma, who is played by the very beautiful Lena Headey, but who has very prominent facial scarring. [[spoiler: Even more averted at the end, when Dredd tosses her off a building and we see in close-up and slow motion the effect of her landing face-first on the ground two hundred storeys below.]]

* HeroicResolve: Anderson displays this when she and Dredd encounter the Clan Techie, and Anderson, reading his mind, sees how badly abused he's been by Ma-Ma, and lets him go. Dredd reminds her that letting a perp go is both a fail in terms of her assessment, and a felony. She in turn observes that she she's ''already'' failed because she let herself be relieved of her primary weapon, but as long as the assessment is still under way, she has the right to dispense justice as she sees fit. As such, she's determined that the Techie is a victim, not a perp, and she will finish the job she and Dredd started, even though she knows that her chances of ever being a Judge are now zero. [[spoiler: From the expression on what we can see of Dredd's face, this would seem to be the moment when he decides that she has, in fact, passed.]]

A spin-off comic, ''Dredd: Underbelly'', was released in September 2013; a sequel, ''Dredd: Uprise'' released the following year. A web-animated mini-series about Judge Death dropped in 2014. Adi Shankar has been trying to get a sequel to the film made after strong outcry from fans and supporters alike. A crowdfunding project was made in an attempt to help get the sequel off the ground, but as of March 2015, the film is most likely scrapped. As of January 2016, the sequel campaign has shifted its focus to attempting to get a SequelSeries made instead.

In the far future, America has become an irradiated wasteland. In the ruins of what was once the United States lies Mega City One, a vast and violent metropolis that stretches from Boston to Washington DC--and is ruled by criminals of all stripes. The only force of order remaining in the city is a group of law enforcement officials known as "The Judges", who act as JudgeJuryAndExecutioner for any criminal unlucky enough to encounter one. Judge Dredd, one of the best Judges, is challenged with ridding the city of its latest drug scourge: a dangerous concoction called "Slo-Mo" that lets users experience reality at a fraction of its normal speed. The film opens with Dredd dealing with several criminals who are using the drug as they try to fend off the Judge.

After he wraps up the chase, Dredd is assigned to train and evaluate Cassandra Anderson, a rookie Judge who has powerful psychic abilities thanks to a genetic mutation. A heinous triple murder calls Dredd and Anderson to Peach Trees, a 200-story vertical slum controlled by prostitute-turned-drug lord Madeleine "Ma-Ma" Madrigal and her ruthless clan. When Dredd and Anderson capture one of the clan's inner circle, Ma-Ma takes control of the compound, traps the Judges inside, and wages a vicious war to protect her empire. As the body count rises and the Judges are left with no way out, Dredd and Anderson fight a relentless battle for surivival against Ma-Ma and her henchmen.
