Customer Reviews

The story, special effects, action, and actors were all great.
W. Carrabine
For as much as I typically like these movies, this was just bad and there is no way around that.
K. Seyfert
Riddick also realizes he needs to get off the planet by trying to obtain a ship.

If you're a diehard Vin Diesel fan, then you probably remember him even for his lesser known roles in films that include Saving Private Ryan, Boiler Room, and Knockaround Guys. But, the rest of us have come to know Diesel in basically two roles and two roles only: Dominic Toretto in The Fast and the Furious franchise and Richard B. Riddick in the Riddick franchise. Depending on how you feel about these two particular franchises - odds are that's how you judge whether you like or dislike his acting choices, which have largely included the role of the thug or tough guy. Regardless, The Fast and the Furious franchise quickly lost its flavor without Diesel involved, eventually leading him to disappointing and lackluster roles in films, such as The Pacifier and Man Apart. Eventually, Diesel reclaimed his role in the Fast franchise over the course of three more sequels - not to mention his fame. And, much like Sylvester Stallone with Rocky and Rambo, Diesel hasn't forgotten the character that put him on the map. It's been nearly 10 years since Diesel played the role of Riddick, but after a lengthy wait - the saga of the shiny-eyed convict finally continues in the second sequel (unless you count Dark Fury, then it would be the third sequel), simply titled - Riddick.

David Twohy (Pitch Black, The Chronicles of Riddick) is back to direct Riddick, starring Vin Diesel as Richard B. Riddick - a convict, last seen in The Chronicles of Riddick, had just conquered the Necromonger Empire. However, it was only a matter of time before Riddick was betrayed by his underling, Vaako (Karl Urban).

When I heard Riddick was coming out, I did not need to see a trailer or review. There are two roles that were made for Vin Diesel. One is Dominic Toretto. The other is Riddick. Unlike his character in the Pacifier, he was meant to play these two characters. No matter what the critics say, I will go see Vin Diesel in any film he portrays these characters.

On Riddick's opening night, I went to see the film. I was disappointed. Riddick is almost the same exact film as Pitch Black.

Aside from a few minor differences, this film contains many of the same elements. Allow me to list them (Beware. Spoilers ahead.):

1. The film takes place on a desolate planet that does not have much life.
2. There are bounty hunters that want to capture him.
3. There are monsters on the planet that want to eat all of them.
4. The main plot is to get off the planet.
5. Two hot women. One will die.
6. Scene of Riddick battling the monsters with his bare hands.
7. Scene where Riddick cuts the monster in the stomach and its guts come out.
8. Sexual frustration between the lead woman and Riddick.
9. Monsters will come out of their respective habitats once the conditions are in their favor.
10. Bounty hunters must work with Riddick in order to survive.
11. Takes the team through the monsters in order to reach their goal.

I thought I was going to see a film with Riddick as the Lord King Marshall of the Necromongers. I guess with a budget of $40 million, the makers of the film could not afford to create that storyline. Chronicles of Riddick had a budget of just over $100 million.

This is still a decent film, mainly because of Vin Diesel's charisma and on screen presence. That is why I give the film 3 stars. Add a star if you did not see Pitch Black.

They just don't make them like this anymore. With the ever growing trend of churning out PG-13 flicks, it's awesome that Riddick went back to rated R. This movie only made it to the big screen because of Vin Diesel's passion for the character of Riddick. He put up his own home to fund much of the budget. He said he felt like he made a promise to the fans to bring it back.

Vin wants to follow this movie up with at least another sequel with hopefully a much bigger budget and on a much bigger scale (think Chronicles). Vin wants to take Riddick through the Underverse to Furya or something like that. I hope it happens. I absolutely love the Riddick universe and want to see the mythos expanded. The problem is Vin isn't getting any younger. I wish his priorities were the Riddick movies and not the Fast and Furious movies, but those Fast movies make all the money, unfortunately. Vin says he can't put out sequels to Riddick like Fast and Furious because "they're too dark". Come on, that's not the reason. But whatever, I'm glad we got to see a real Riddick movie again.

This latest sequel in the Riddick series, takes us full circle as the baddest anti-hero in the galaxy finds himself betrayed by the Necromongers and left for dead. The first part of this film is essentially a great survival story, where Riddick returns to his more feral roots however the tenor quickly changes when he finds a way to signal for "rescue" but instead gets reminded that he's still a wanted fugitive (VERY wanted). At this point, the movie becomes semi-horror reminiscent of the original "Pitch Black" (except much better) as he reminds everyone, including the audience, just why he's so feared.

This is easily the best of the trilogy in my opinion and presents a darker and more violent story than "Chronicles" represented by the PG-13 back to R rating however it doesn't saturate the dialogue with gratuitous profanity as in the first film; there's also very brief nudity and again, lots of violence but these things all supplement what is essentially a fierce tale of survival and a very well made sci-fi film.

As I was watching Riddick at one point, surrounded by enemies in the midst of a raging storm, I was reminded of a line from a poem: "Out of the night that covers me, black as the pit from pole to pole, I thank whatever gods may be for my unconquerable soul. In the fell clutch of circumstance I have not winced nor cried aloud. Under the bludgeonings of chance my head is bloody, but unbowed." :o)
