* AbilityOverAppearance: While KarlUrban doesn't quite have the LanternJawOfJustice that appears in the [[ComicBook/JudgeDredd original comics]] or even [[Film/JudgeDredd Stallone's version]], he nails the characteristation far far better than Stallone ever did.

* WinBacktheCrowd: Fans of the comic (and non-fans too) hated the Stallone version. While fans of the comic do (grudgingly) admit that the Stallone film did get the over-the-top look of the Mega City One, the Cursed earth, and the judges uniforms correct, the characters, particularly Stallone as Dredd, were so awful that the the movie was a bitter disappointment. This gritty version is much more faithful to the comic and Karl Urban's portrayal as Dredd was highly praised.

* 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 to draw attention to its CultClassic status and hopefully inspire the production of a sequel.

The campaign has done well enough to get a tv series into development, though whether Urban is involved has yet to be confirmed.

* DevelopmentHell: Went through this after the unsuccessful Stallone film. Doesn't help that the script was leaked and is mistaken for a ripoff of ''Film/TheRaid''.

* CultClassic: Since its DVD release, it got a bigger following, a sequel petition and won out in Amazon's March Movie Madness poll in 2014, [[DarkHorseVictory beating out such films as]] ''Film/PulpFiction'', ''Franchise/IndianaJones'' and ''Literature/TheLordOfTheRings''.



* DoingItForTheArt: Karl Urban is a fan of the comics and actually defied the director during the filming, refusing to film a scene where Dredd would have taken his helmet off and show his face (something that is widely considered CanonDefilement by fans).

** There were three treatments that Alex Garland wrote before settling for the present story. The first treatment - the Dark Judges treatment features the encounter between Dredd and a rival judge by the name of Judge Death. However, Garland abandoned it after a year's work and 16 drafts on the story admitting that he couldn't crack much on that storyline. The second treatment is related to the Dredd and Cursed Earth storyline but was abandoned for the similar reason. The third treatment was an adaptation of the pro-democracy terrorists attacking the judges storyline but Garland felt that story and his ideas towards it were too grandiose in nature but stated that treatment would have been the third part of a trilogy, if there would be one. The final script that he wrote was based one of the punchier short stories in the vein of cop movies e.g TrainingDay. John Wagner described the script as correcting the mistake in the Stallone-starred version that was being too sweeping.
