One of the elements that made the original RoboCop (1987) so good was seeing Alex Murphy deal out some major butt-kicking in spite of the losing battle he was facing against the city, politicians and his makers. And Dredd (2012) serves this very experience ala carte. I don't think the reboot of Robocop can come close to the sheer audacity of Dredd. Dredd is a straightforward no-nonsense cop-thriller set in the future. Judge Dredd is presented as he should be - a dedicated, incorruptible cop with a powerful firearm.
Linux/Unix once again makes a cameo appearance in the form of Peach Trees online maintenance system that controls the web cameras, elevators, blast doors and PA systems.
