** A bit of FridgeBrilliance at work here: Watch the first firefight in the drug den, when one of the perps tries to draw his gun, but is nowhere near fast enough, and gets shot through the cheek for his trouble. Slo-Mo just makes you ''think'' time is travelling at 1% its normal speed. It doesn't speed up your ''reaction time.''

* BadassBoast: Dredd delivers this after Anderson has been captured:
--> '''Dredd:''' Inhabitants of Peach Trees. This is Judge Dredd. In case you people have forgotten, this block operates under the same rules as the rest of the city. Ma-Ma is not the law. [[CatchPhrase I am the law]]. Ma-Ma is a common criminal. Guilty of murder. Guilty of the manufacture and distribution of the narcotic known as Slo-Mo. And as of now, under sentence of death. Any who obstruct me in carrying out my duty will be treated as an accessory to her crimes. You have been warned. And as for you, Ma-Ma: [[PreAssKickingOneLiner Judgment time.]]

* BadassBoast: Ma-Ma starts the action in earnest with one:
-->'''Ma-Ma''': Peach Trees, this is Ma-Ma. Somewhere in this block are two Judges. I want them dead. Until I get what I want the block is locked down. All clan, every level, hunt the Judges down. Everyone else, clear the corridors and stay the fuck out of our way until the shooting stops. If I hear of anyone helping the Judges, I will kill them and the next generation of their families. As for the Judges... sit tight, or run. It makes no difference, you're mine.

* DangerouslyGenreSavvy:
** Ma-Ma orders her gang to forgo raping and torturing Anderson in favor of shooting her until she's dead to cover up what was really going on at Peach Trees.
** After the Gatling gun attack Caleb refuses to accept Dredd or Anderson are dead [[NoOneCouldSurviveThat until he finds at least part of the corpses]].
** Dredd realizes that Ma-Ma declared war on him because she's afraid of Kay being arrested and interrogated.



'''[[TheDragon Caleb]]:''' [[DangerouslyGenreSavvy They ain't dead until we find 'em dead.]] [[ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill Or part of 'em, anyway.]]

to:

'''[[TheDragon Caleb]]:''' [[DangerouslyGenreSavvy [[NeverFoundTheBody They ain't dead until we find 'em dead.]] dead]]. [[ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill Or part of 'em, anyway.]]



** As much as Ma-Ma tries to be DangerouslyGenreSavvy, she fails on several points. Her overreaction to Kay's capture by both locking down the building and using gatling guns, rouse Dredd's suspicions as to how important Kay really is, thus allowing Dredd and Anderson to discover that information along with the fact [[spoiler:it lets the judges communicate with the outside, and it wrecks a lot of her hacker's connections]].. She routinely abuses the Clan Techie even though, as far as we know, he is literally their only computer expert on staff. Given the chance, he gives up the code to her safe room to save his hide. She [[spoiler:hires corrupt Judges to take out Dredd after her own men prove inadequate, but this just serves to provide Dredd with more ammo]]. As the doctor points out in the beginning, Ma-Ma [[WhenAllYouHaveIsAHammer only solves her problems with violence]].

** 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 lets the Judges communicate with the outside and wrecks a lot of her hacker's connections]].

* {{Badass}}: Dredd. Anderson's character arc is also very much about [[TookALevelInBadass developing into one]].

This is not to be confused with the [[Film/JudgeDredd 1995 film adaptation]] starring Creator/SylvesterStallone.

* 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.]]
