The core question behind an action film is always: how cool and thrilling are the action scenes? The film has a lot of silly moments between its wooden characters and logical problems with its plot, yes, but the killing blow is how nothing seems that exciting. Stallone did such a better job as a rogue cop tangling with a criminal sociopath in 'Demolition Man'.

It's also galling how futuristic mega-cities have been shown so much better in much nicer films, especially the 'Blade Runner' movies. The visuals in this film are as mediocre as the rest of it. Don't bother.

Another reviewer aced it: the original, without famous actors, is far better.
To an extent, that's apples and oranges because old Sylvester is an [unwitting] comedian, like Nicholas Cage. Taken as comedy, it's passable.

The best thing I can say about this 1995 sci-fi action movie is that it's not terribly, merely bad. Stallone had apparently never heard of the cult British comic series on which its based, but was probably inspired to take the role by the success of "Demolition Man." No doubt this alienated fans of the comics, as it has a jokier tone and Dredd has his helmet off most of the time (something the newer, superior version remedies). Stallone is basically Stallone, kicking butt and taking names. The action is OK, the plot a little nonsensical and the futuristic look kinda cool, if very indebted to "Blade Runner." Armand Assante chews scenery as the bad guy, Rob Schneider, who was also in "D. Man" tries to provide comic relief and the overqualified supporting cast includes Max Von Sydow, Diane Lane, Joan Chen and Herschel from "Walking Dead."
