Riddick

The third chapter of the sci-fi thriller saga, beginning with Pitch Black (2000) and The Chronicles of Riddick (2004). Writer/director David Twohy returns, as does star Vin Diesel as the badass Riddick - escaped convict wanted by every bounty hunter in the known galaxy. Marooned on a seemingly vacant, sun-scorched planet, Riddick finds himself fighting for survival against lethal alien predators.

The only way off is for Riddick to activate an emergency beacon and alert mercenaries who rapidly descend to the planet in search of their bounty. The first ship to arrive carries a new breed of violent mercenaries who won’t leave the planet without Riddick’s head as their trophy. The second ship is captained by a man whose pursuit of Riddick is more personal. With these two unlikely forces reluctantly banding together, the odds seem in their favour – that is, until the hunted becomes the hunter…

An improbable but very enjoyable sequel that recaptures much of the stripped-down intensity of Diesel and director David Twohy’s franchise starter "Pitch Black."

Too stodgy for B-movie suspense, too silly to shock, too sexist to stomach, Diesel’s return misfires.

Watching this see-in-the-dark muscleman brooding against gorgeous otherworldly vistas, all while crafting pointy homemade weapons and befriending a scene-stealing CGI canine (no joke), is a sci-fi aficionado's delight.

The results are by turns boring and bizarre, although Diesel still has some presence.

Riddick taps into a primal well of audience wish-fulfillment, but over the course of its unrelieved, monotonous length, it does its best to suck that well dry.

Faithful to the template if not the spirit of previous installments, this flabby second sequel barely manages to advance Riddick’s considerable personal mythology.

Overlong and often overcooked, this is nevertheless a relative return to form for Diesel as the fiendish Furyan.

More action needed

Similar to the first Ridick Shot at night to save on special effects with minimal actors to save $ Action was minimal more a thriller / horror film and an average one at that.

I've been following Riddick since the first movie

I usually pick a movie that I know I would enjoy. And I did. I've always like the Riddick movies and Vin Diesel. I wanted to unwind and be entertained and it did it for me.
