Watched Dredd yesterday. I was quite impressed - enough to be pretty disappointed that we won't see any sequels to it. My first impression was that it had a very District 9 feel to it and so it wasn't much of a surprise that it was shot in South Africa. It's is a very graphically violent movie at times which I was OK with - it conveyed the harsh future reality.
However, it was a little short on making the viewer connect with the characters. Much like the movie Conan, which I liked but attribute a large part of the appeal of both to being a longtime reader of the comics and already familiar with them. This movie was absolutely spot on with capturing the Dredd character. So my slightly biased score is 8/10.
