* 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.

** Anderson arms herself with an SMG after she loses her Lawgiver and uses it for the rest of the movie.

** Because it's a not-strictly-realistic science fiction action movie. RuleOfCool, essentially.

** 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.

** Dredd may also have doubts about the whole idea of psychic testimony, alone, being the basis for a capital conviction. He'd prefer to find some material evidence and/or have Kay's guilt borne out by the man's own actions than rely solely on a rookie's mental talents.

From the sound of things, it's a new practice for psychic Judges to be deployed in this particular adaptation, and policies for their powers' legal functions are still evolving.

to:

** Or possibly it's not just thoughts she's picking up, but nervous system impulses in general. She could sense that the female Judge's nerves and spinal cord were ready to attack, belying the woman's amicable words.
