Sex & Nudity


When Anderson is guarding the gang member that they captured for interrogation, the man imagines having sex with a woman and we see the woman topless. The shot is hazy & brief.

Mild references to rape and prostitution.

When Dredd and Anderson interrogate the man, he imagines a woman taking off her clothes (we see her bare shoulders and back) the woman goes to preform oral sex on him and we hear a crunch, implying his penis was bitten off. (All off screen).

We see a man's bare abdomen when his shirt is pulled up.

In one slow-Mo shoot out a women's shirt is open and her chest is shown briefly.

Violence & Gore


A door is blown open and we see several people shot in slow motion: one man is blown back from the force of the blast (we see the flesh on his abdomen and chest flutter from the force), another man is shot through the cheek and mouth (we see the bullet enter and exit taking tissue with it and leaving a bloody hole), another man is shot through the face leaving a gaping bloody wound (we see part of his teeth through the hole) and another through the abdomen (we see bloody wound).

Three men are bound and are bloody from being beaten as a woman tells other men to "skin them and throw them off a balcony": the three already blood-soaked bodies flatten when they hit the ground (pedestrians scream and scatter).

We see another glimpse of a man being flayed with a large knife and we hear the man screaming.

A man's head is blown off by a high-powered bullet (we see the bloody body with the head missing).

A woman is pushed through a plate glass window and falls many stories to her death (we see splatter from underneath as her face hits the ground first).

A huge gun is loaded and fired into an area where a man and a woman are trapped: we see many people struck by bullets and blood splatters, sprays and puddles.

A man is shot through the back and we see a bloody hole in his protective vest and blood smears on the wall behind him.

A man is shot repeatedly in the back and neck and falls dead with a lot of blood visible.

A man shoots another man several times in the face.

Four men are shot and they flop to the floor dead as blood splatters and sprays.

Several armed men shoot into a booth thinking a man is inside and we see the bloody body of a man tied up inside afterwards.

A man is shot in the head and falls dead.

A man fires a gun and the gun explodes and takes off his arm (we see the bloody stump as he collapses to the floor).

Two men are shot in the back and many people run and scream.

A woman is shot in the abdomen (we see a bloody wound).

Several men burst into flames and run around screaming after an incendiary bullet is shot at them.

A stun grenade is thrown into a group of armed men and they are shot repeatedly.

Several men are shot and the flip and are thrown from the impact as blood splatters and sprays.

A man is crushed under a heavy security door (we hear a squish and see a puddle of blood on the floor where he had been).

Two men fight with punches and kicks, they slam each other into walls and floors and one hits the other hard in the throat, collapsing his windpipe (we see the throat caved in); he gasps, spits blood and collapses dead.

A woman punches a man hard in the face (we see his bloody nose and mouth).

We see a woman pressing her thumbs into a man's eyes, very brief, (we see the eyes bloody and we see the man later with what looks like camera shutters in his eye sockets).

A man lifts tarps covering dead bodies and we see large pools of blood, and very bloody and flattened bodies; he opens the mouth of one of the victims and identifies him as a drug user.

A man patches a wound in his abdomen and we see the gaping hole being filled with a foam, and then stapled shut and cinched closed.



About 47 fucks (3 paired with mother), 8 shits (1 paired with bull)(1 written) , 7 use of bitch, 1 god damn it (paired with fucking), 1 ass. 1 use of whore-in. 1 use of hell.


A woman in a bathtub inhales a fictional drug and it causes what she sees to move in slow motion.

A man is given a hit of a fictional drug from an inhaler before being push off a balcony.

Two men inhale a fictional drug and lie back when overcome by the effects.

A woman is given a fictional drug to inhale.

We see many people working in a drug production facility.


Nothing particularly disturbing and nothing frightening, some people may find the eye gouging scene to be disturbing despite it being very brief.

Not really for people who strongly dislike violence or guns.

Two references to men's genitals being bitten of by a sadistic woman.
