Description

Vin Diesel reprises his role as the antihero Riddick in the latest chapter of the groundbreaking saga. A dangerous, escaped convict wanted by every bounty hunter in the known galaxy, Riddick has been left for dead on a sun-scorched planet that appears to be lifeless. Soon, however, he finds himself fighting for survival against alien predators more lethal than any human he’s encountered. The only way off is for him to activate an emergency beacon and alert mercenaries who rapidly descend to the planet in search of their bounty. With time running out and a deadly storm on the horizon that no one could survive, his hunters won’t leave the planet without Riddick’s head as their trophy. Also starring Katee Sackhoff (TV’s Battlestar Galactica), Karl Urban (Star Trek Into Darkness) and Dave Bautista (WWE). Experience the Riddick Unrated Director’s Cut with an alternate ending!

    While no new Riddick film was ever going to top the simplicity and rawness of Pitch Black, who cares? For those who love Riddick, you’ve already watched it and probably agree with me anyway. For those who haven’t and love sci-fi get on board.
  • EXCELLENT

    As action flicks go, they don't get much better. The first 45 minutes is especially cool as we see a wounded Riddick in a survivolist type of situation for the first part of the movie. Better than expected.
  • Entertaining, but...

    This was entertaining. But I was very disappointed they didn’t continue on with the storyline suggested at the end of the previous film in the series, THE CHRONICLES OF RIDDICK. That would’ve made for a much more interesting film. Instead, they made mention of it just long enough to undo that plot direction, and what we’re left with is basically a rehash of the first film in the series, PITCH BLACK. Still, this was fun and entertaining. But it could’ve been so much more.
  • Great Movie!!!

    I am a fan of the Riddick flicks. Yes I know they aren’t deep social commentary, but when I want the, "7th Seal”, I will watch it. In my opinion this is the 2nd best of the 3 films. The first film, “Pitch Black”, was actually a good movie w/ multidimensional characters as well as being a great action-er. The second movie, “The Chronicles of Riddick”, was a jumbled mess. I had the feeling that the fan-boys that put it together thought that I should know all the back story they left out. The result was well-nigh incomprehensible as well as unevenly paced. This film very competently is what it is. It is a Riddick film w/ the taciturn invincible hero — check. It has bounty hunters that are always willing to turn on each other — check. It has the desolate planet where the strong eat the weak ’til only the strong survive — check. It has love interest where the female tough like Riddick — check. My only real objection was that it was rather derivative of the first film w/o characters that were as well drawn. All in all this is a good flick. As I said: It is what it is.
  • Nice dog and bikes!

    This is a great movie, for what it is. If you take it for anything more or less, then you’re only disappointing yourself. The film has higher production values than the previous one, and that means some producers put out a lot of cash to help ensure a good return on their investment. But the viewer is the ultimate factor, and that’s the way you have to come to this film; or for that matter, to any film, in my opinion. If it’s your thing, then you will enjoy it and find exciting or interesting things in it. If you’re looking for some kind of personal redemption or catharsis, then maybe this isn’t your movie. Don’t blame it on the film or Vin Diesel — blame it on the guy (or gal) who plunked down the price of watching. I find the monsters, both human and animal, to be just what I expected. The plot has some quirky things that made me smile, and some instances that made me gasp with surprise or delight or disgust — just as I expected. I guess what I’m saying is, how do you really judge or review art… I think you have to be sort of grownup about it, and accept responsibility for your choices. The film is made, it’s history, it’s finished and the crew, director, and talent are off doing something else. Now it’s your turn. Like the movie, or don’t like it, but don’t whine if it’s not what you expected. They are YOUR expectations, so own ‘em. For me, this was a movie well worth my time and money.

    That's exactly what those New York film critics are rotten tomatoes. They wouldn't know a good movie if it slapped them in the face!!
  • Very good plot.

    I personally think all three of the Riddick movies made so far are amazing! They all include great graphics, great acting, and great showman ship. All I have to say for the next (and possibly the last) Riddick movie is keep up the good work and keep the crowd interested.

    This is not an intellectual romp, but so what? Roddick is himself again after spending too much time with too many people in “Chronicles.” Belligerent planet with interesting animal life: I’ve seen this before, but I love it. Bounty hunters? Check. Something about Johns? Check? An approaching mysterious danger? Check. Riddick gets a puppy? Priceless.
