Funny: Dredd
  • After Ma-Ma's goons destroy half the 75th floor in an attempt to kill the Judges, they go into the wreckage to find the bodies. And then, as Ma-Ma watches, Dredd just walks out of the smoke, dragging her right-hand man, tosses him over the balcony, and walks back into the smoke, without breaking stride. The sheer matter-of-factness with which Dredd does this transforms it from kind of horrifying to hilarious.
    • Doubles as an Awesome Moment because he's doing this right in front of Ma-Ma's eyes. That takes serious balls.
  • This Uncomfortable Elevator Moment as Dredd and Anderson take a perp down an elevator:
    Anderson: (the telepath) He's thinking of making a move on your gun.
    Dredd: (who's seen it all) Yep.
    Anderson: He's changed his mind.
    Dredd: Yep.
  • That poor homeless guy.
  • This exchange:
    Dredd: I was wondering when you'd realize you've forgotten your helmet.
    Anderson: A helmet can interfere with my psychic abilities.
    Dredd: Thought a bullet to the head would interfere worse.
  • Anderson and Kay discussing her abilities.
    Kay: What am I thinking of right now?
    Anderson: You're picturing a violent sexual liaison between the two of us in a pointless attempt to shock me.
    Kay: You're good. But I wasn't trying to shock you. If I was trying to shock, I'd be thinking about this: (imagines torturing Anderson)
    Anderson: (hits him) What are you thinking about now, huh?
  • When Anderson has just escaped from Kay, one of the corrupt Judges goes to intercept her, thinking she would lower her guard if approached by another Judge. When they meet, she (the Judge) says "Lower your weapon, rookie, I'm your backup." Cue the screen going funky for a second and Anderson shooting her down and moving on without a word.
  • After an entire night's worth of carnage, dozens if not hundreds of dead bodies, and Dredd himself wounded in action, we get this gem.
    Chief Judge: What happened here?
    Dredd: Drug bust.
    • And then adds:
  • When the bodies splatter on the pavement at the bottom of Peach Trees, one guy is seen with a camera phone, taking pictures of the crime scene.
  • Two judges (who aren't corrupt) are stuck outside and unable to give Dredd or Anderson assistance because Techie is keeping them out and they can't go through the blast doors. The corruptJudge Lex and his three fellow judges come up and have the following conversation with them:
    Stuck Judge: Block's under lockdown. Malfunction with their defence system.
    Inside Judge: (into the intercom) Open up!
    (The blast boors open.)
    Judge Lex: (to Judges outside) You're relieved.
  • The "Wait" Scene.
    Dredd: (mortally injured and unarmed) Wait...
    Judge Lex: 'Wait'? Are you kidding me? Did you say 'wait'? Judge Dredd... the Judge Dredd, finally gets on the wrong end of a gun, and what he says... is 'wait'. You know what? I expected more of you. I mean, wait for what? Wait for me to change my mind? Wait for another two or three seconds of life because you're so fucking weak you just can't stand to see it end?
    Dredd: No. (Anderson riddles Lex with bullets from behind) Wait for her to shoot you.
  • After Dredd kills the hostage taker with a Hotshot round, an automated floor buffer begins cleaning up the food court, announcing that it will reopen in thirty minutes.
  • Even without thirty-five years of ass-kicking, world-saving backstory, it seems Dredd still has quite the reputation.
    Ma-Ma: How much [to take out Dredd and Anderson]?
    Lex: One million.
    Ma-Ma: Seems a bit much for just two Judges.
    Lex: Do you know who you're dealing with?
    Ma-Ma: No...
    Lex: I do. One million.
