** It's doubtful he had any stun rounds left, or he'd have used them on Lex.

** In the first example her telepathy is working exactly as intended (she's picking up what's actually on his mind). In the second example he's hijacked control of the 'dreamscape' and is using it against her. Its not the disgusting rape fantasy that has Anderson worried, its her (fortunately temporary) loss of control over the situation.
*** I think you are mistaken. The first time the perp pictures himself raping Andernson, she says that doesn't scare her, then he says that wasn't his intention and imagines something different, which does upset Anderson. Later, it is implied that what he imagined was forced oral sex (the visuals do match withe the flash we saw just before Anderson got mad in the prior scene). Which certainly is odd.
*** Some people have personal phobias and squicks that aren't constructed on what seems like rational structures to others.Anderson's personal feelings of what she finds disturbing or infuriating may not operate on someone else's subjective judgment of "Well, vaginal sex is less disturbing than oral sex, which is less disturbing than anal sex, which is less disturbing than-"
*** Maybe she just got annoyed that he was thinking of something to shock her intentionally. That would be the guess of this troper.
*** She might have been pretending in order to give him a false sense of security before pulling the rug out from under him making the imagery she bombards his head with all the more unexpected and disturbing for him.

She isn't. We are mistaken. The first time the perp pictures himself raping Andernson, she says that doesn't never shown what he thinks of to scare her, her (although it may be what the Clan did to "the girl about your age one time"), but the blowjob is her REACTION to his mental threat, complying with hks lusts, but even then he says that wasn't his intention and imagines something different, which does upset Anderson. Later, it is implied that what he imagined was forced oral sex (the visuals do match withe the flash we saw she did it just before Anderson got mad in so she could turn the prior scene). Which certainly is odd.

*** You have only seen videogame miniguns - actual miniguns are surprisingly accurate. Also, the ones in the film could clearly swivel, and did.

* How did Anderson get out of her restraints? Kay goes to shoot her and her gun blows half his arm off: very satisfying. She then stands up, her hands still cuffed behind her back, and boots him in the face: great. In the next shot, she's got free of her cuffs. Just wondering how she did that. I know there are ways you can free yourself from rope or cable ties, but wouldn't it have taken her a little while to do that? And if she was restrained with something stronger, how did she get out of it?

** She may have used the knife on the table, the one Kay handled before picking up her family photo.

*** His stun charge could have been drained, as he doesn't try to use it against [[spoiler: Lex]]. That and the comics version of the stun shot is unreliable. Dredd probably thought it wouldn't matter against a pair of juves who hadn't the stomach to shoot him in the first place, but against a hardened criminal like Kay, he didn't want to take the chance.

** They're coming down from a massive power and adrenaline rush, as I imagine most people who're probably juiced up on all kinds of things and have just committed a massive violent felony by firing mini-guns into the walls of an apartment block and almost certainly killed a whole bunch of people would be likely to experience.



** Presumably in the world of ''Dredd'' they were sufficiently well-defended to prevent the bombs from getting through or the bombs failed to get through for whatever reason.

to:

**** Depends on the side effects. It's possible Anderson would have been useless in a fight for awhile after a stun.




to:

** To be honest, I expected Dredd to just shoot her with the stun rounds he used earlier so he could disable the trigger.
