* DuelingMovies: This film and ''[[Film/TheRaid The Raid: Redemption]]'', which came out within months of each other, share the same basic plot of cops going into an apartment tower run by a crimelord and having to fight their way back out again. Due to the major differences in execution, and the fact that neither film had a large-scale release, not much was made about their similarity. Since ''Dredd'' was released some time after ''The Raid: Redemption'' there were some attempts to claim that the former was a rip-off of the latter, but these claims are confounded by the fact that''Dredd'' started principal photography in November 2010 and was in the closing days of shooting before ''The Raid: Redemption'' started shooting in January 2011. ''Dredd'' took a lot longer in post-production, which is why it was released later, but the similarities between them are entirely coincidental.

* DuelingMovies: Avoided, or at least the "dueling" part. Though released within months of ''[[Film/TheRaid The Raid: Redemption]]'', which shares an similar plot, ''The Raid'''s small release prevented most of the world noticing, and as ''Dredd'' was in production for years before ''The Raid'' came out, it was largely shrugged off as a coincidence. It also probably didn't hurt that ''Dredd'' (in concept, at least) is already based on a long-running and well-known franchise that involves similar concepts and themes to begin with.

* VindicatedByCable: The film failed to recoup its production budget in its theatrical run, however it sold very well on DVD, including an annual campaign (The Day of Dredd) to get as many people as possible to buy and/or stream a copy of the movie on a specific date as possible to draw attention to its CultClassic status and hopefully inspire the production of a sequel.
