I grew up reading 2000AD and Judge Dredd, and the snippet I just procured from an IMDb user on the Dredd page below does a good job of summing up my own theories: If you know the story-line in the comics, what Anderson is sensing behind his need for control is his sense of doubt about the judicial system. In the comic this sense of doubt leads him to quit ...

When Anderson releases the computer hacker guy and lets him walk free. Dredd tells her that releasing a felon is not only a fail but a criminal offense. Anderson explains that she has already failed because she lost her side arm (an automatic failure). She says "I'm not going to be a judge and I don't need to be a mind reader to know it" implying that she ...

Dredd reasons that the detonator's signal will not reach the explosives from the ground floor, so he forces Ma-Ma to inhale Slo-Mo and throws her down the atrium to her death. (Source: Wikipedia) So its clear that building doesn't blow up because of signal range.

Dredd in the movie was by no means a psychic. The scene that you're talking about, Judge Dredd after he was hit by that armor piercing round and was sitting on the floor he might have seen Anderson coming behind the bad guy after he had moved right next to confront Dredd which would have made him say wait to buy him some time.

No, Dredd 3D is not an adaptation or inspired by a specific storyline. Alex Garland did consider adapting one of the more well known Judge Dredd storylines such as Origins, but decided that that he would not adapt such a big epic and instead went for an approach of writing an original story - a kind of 'day in the life of Judge Dredd'. You can read more ...

I have a theory for the jacket, I noticed that in the initial part of the movie where they make the reference to three gangs who fought for control of peach tree namely Peyote Kings Red Dragon The Judged Its shown through a bunch of sequences as Mama clan try to fight for control and the last gang they eliminate is shown to be The Judged and ...

The interview scene you describe was discussed here and is, in my opinion, nicely explained. No, I don't think Dredd is a psychic. There too many tell-signs. For example, the scene before MaMa clan starts shooting those three big guns. He had to go there and take a peek. A psychic would read it from the nearby corner. As we see, he goes by his guts and ...

It is a combination. On one hand, you have Dredd's opening instruction to Anderson: Judge Dredd: Twelve serious crimes reported every minute. Seventeen thousand per day. We can respond to around six percent. Anderson: Which six percent? Judge Dredd: Your show, rookie. You tell me. So, they live in a world where violent crime is rampant, and ...

Actually, my take on it was that while she acknowledged she technically failed, she ultimately turned in her badge because she couldn't handle the questionable ethics and the emotional intensity of the job. Case in point: she executes one of the Ma-Ma clan members who was begging for his life, then later discovers he was the husband and father of a Peach ...

Obviously she passed and becomes a judge. The last scene of the movie is a silhouette (or back lit) view of Anderson in her Judge uniform ... at least this is what it appeared to be to me.

I think when he said she passed, he actually meant she passed up being a judge. But it ended too early to determine if he literally passed her or if it was a figure of speech.

Paul Leonard-Morgan wrote the film's industrial music score. Leonard-Morgan created music to suit the film's futuristic setting. He experimented with band-based music, but decided it sounded over-produced and too safe. He turned to electronic music and used 1980s-style synthesisers and modern sound modules to create various combinations and ...

The slow-mo music was apparently based on a slowed down Justin Bieber song, but I seem to recall slowing songs songs like this was a popular fad a few years ago.

That whole wall seems to be an imitation of judge's gear. Helmet, jacket, assortment of weapons. You'll remember the movie starts with Dredd putting on his gear. The imagery hints that Ma-Ma is no different from the judges (a running theme in the movie) and given that judges aren't even around most of the time she's a more legitimate authority. The clown ...

I think the jacket is a trophy from killing a high ranking member (possibly the leader) of a rival gang. The Judge's helmet seems to indicate that she keeps trophies like this, and seeing as they are displayed over the bed, I think she is showing them off. A woman like MaMa obviously feels the need to display her power often and violently, so it makes ...

Just a thought... One of the interpretations of the paper unicon at the end of Blade Runner is evidence that Deckard is a replicant or synthetic human created for a purpose. Is it possible that Dredd is synthetic, created to bring the law to Megacity One. The film mentions that Judge numbers are so low they can only respond to 6% of crimes - synthetic ...

I noticed the wire tiger on my second viewing, I've just watched it again for the fourth time (I do love it!). According to Alex Garland one of the crew made models from wire and he made the tiger; it does seem far too haphazard to put someone's little model in. I had jumped to the conclusion that it was like the origami at the end of Blade Runner, but ...

Wouldn't say it was his doubt about the system, not at that point of the movie, at least. From the interview about the comic-book sequel to the movie: "[This Dredd] is younger, a little more enthusiastic about his job as the years have ground him down less. He doesn't have any of the creeping doubts about the system that may have crept in." Source: ...

Adding to the earlier point about Deckard's dream of the unicorn and the folded unicorn in Bladerunner, I would say it is entirely possible that they placed that little tiger figure there as a form of reference - maybe as an afterthought without purposely intended symbolism as Bladerunner had. If you look at the cinematography of Dredd, you see that many ...

From IMDB-Trivia: In Ma-Ma's penthouse there is a Judge's helmet hanging on her wall with a length of gold chain attached to it, a nod to the comic design of Judge Dredd where the gold chain would link the badge to the uniform collar

Looks like the jacket kind of says "prop of" something or "proof of" something. Maybe the former. The way I hope it turns out is that's the jacket of the pimp she killed and he was one of the leaders in a gang. After she killed him she ran off to start her own thing so she could take on the rest of that gang. It would make sense since in the movie she spoke ...
