After a nuclear war decimated most of the country, America’s remaining population lives in a giant walled metropolis called Mega City One. Crime runs rampant in the massive city with 17,000 crimes reported each day. The only thing standing between the citizens and chaos is Judges from the Hall of Justice. Each Judge, riding around the city on a customized motorcycle, is tasked not only with maintaining the law, but also acting as jury and instant executioner. The toughest of all the Judges is one called Dredd (Karl Urban).
