* CompleteMonster: Madeline "[[OneBadMother Ma-Ma]]" Madrigal is the de facto [[BigBad ruler]] of the Peach Trees apartment complex and [[TheMobBossIsScarier the biggest and most aggressive drug lord]] spreading the Slo-Mo drug, which slows the user's perception of time, throughout Mega-City One. Her meteoric ascent to power in Peach Trees is noted as unprecedented for its sheer senseless carnage and bloodshed, as she and her followers slaughtered their way to the top (ironically by taking the top ''first'', then slaughtering their way down the block) with a SlasherSmile on her face. She is introduced having several rival gangsters [[FlayedAlive skinned alive]], then thrown out a ''very'' long drop after being given Slo-Mo to [[{{Sadist}} draw out their deaths]]. When the Judges arrive to investigate and capture one of her chief lieutenants, Ma-Ma has the Peach Trees complex shut down to trap Dredd and his trainee inside to silence any witnesses. She has no compunction about any civilians getting caught in the crossfire, to the point that she opens fire into an apartment block with [[GatlingGood gatling guns]] to kill the two judges. Dredd, a trigger-happy KnightTemplar himself, notes [[ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill just how overkill this is]]. We later learn that she personally [[EyeScream carved out the eyes]] of her lead techie to forcefully give him [[ElectronicEyes cybernetic implants]] and playfully threatens to gut him while issuing orders. The captured lieutenant is later returned to her, and she only refrains from killing him [[CantKillYouStillNeedYou because she's running low on men at that point]]. She finally arranges to blow up half the complex, with a population of thousands, by detonating a bomb [[DeadManSwitch tied to her heart rate]].

* JustForFun/XMeetsY: The [[WordOfGod movie's cinematographer]] said that he was shooting to make the visual style a hybrid of ''Film/BladeRunner'' and ''Film/AClockworkOrange''.

*** Urban's casting as Skurge is hilarious in and of itself, as Skurge is ''also'' known as the Executioner in the comics.

* FamilyUnfriendlyAesop: This is the first Judge Dredd film to examine the core premise of the comics; DemocracyIsBad. If people can't learn to live together peacefully, all that's left is the AppealToForce; the shotgun blast of Ma-Ma's enforcers, or the surgical ruthlessness of Dredd and his fellow Judges. Either way, civilization is held together by mutual self-interest or [[SwordOfDamocles unreasoning fear]]; a fear the Judges know all too well how to exploit.
