Riddick (Vin Diesel) is left for dead on an inhospitable planet & in a bad way. Stranded, his only way off the planet is to use the infamous price on his head, to lure bounty hunters to him so he can take their ship & escape. If only it was that easy.

Riddick is a sequel from Chronicles, and begins initially without explanation of Riddick's predicament, left for dead on an planet, as it slowly uses flashbacks of Riddick's time as Lord Marshall of the Necromongers & a brief cameo by Karl Urban (Dredd) for continuity, to tell the tale of how he ended up there. While the remainder of the film is heavily tied into the survival scenario used in the original film, Pitch Black, from a decade prior. With the advance of technology the CGI special effects were nice, the dusty dry planet backdrop, wildlife & action set pieces well presented, better in some places than others, but nothing we haven't seen before that the original did just as well. The build up of tension within the bounty hunters was well done, culminating in particular with the locker scene where you could cut the atmosphere with a knife, but otherwise it's an all too familiar scenario with either scared mercenaries & those underestimating him etc...

The opening 20-30 minutes is a little slow paced, with the explanation & understanding how Riddick ended up where he is, as initially he needs to go back to his animalistic roots as he fights to survive in his new surroundings against the local wildlife.

Not sure why this film is getting the roasting it is. While it may not be the deepest of films, it is a superior action/SF film that more than holds its own against the competition.

I will admit straight away to liking the unloved Chronicles of Riddick, so you may want to throw up your hands in horror and walk away now. While that got slated, at least it tried to do something different to Pitch Black. Vin Diesel worked hard to get Riddick back on screen, and if nothing else it shows his commitment to the character.

The film Riddick is taking the story back to basics. The first 20 minutes are so are excellent, when you see Riddick abandoned for dead on a nameless planet, his struggle to survive and then how he rears and befriends an alien dog. After he kills an alien beast, he finds an empty outpost and entices 2 rival groups of mercenaries down on to the planet. This effectively reestablishes the character, and demonstrates why the mercenaries who are hunting him see him as such a threat.

There is an all-too-brief flashback of Riddick among the Necromongers after Chronicles, and then the main story shifts to the mercenaries, and Riddick playing cat-and-mouse with them, picking them off while using them to get transport off the planet.

A lot have people have said that Riddick is too much like Pitch Black, however for much of the film, Riddick is more like Rambo in Space, as he uses his stealth and wits to play the mercenaries against each other until he can take them on on his own terms. And the film nicely portrays the characters of the mercenaries too, so they are not just mindless grunts.

Positive.
1)The action is hardcore & it doesn't hold back the gore, Check out the scene with the box as it's worth seeing the movie just for that sequence.
2)No 12a toned down rubbish here thank god.
3)Great tension & atmosphere the build up is slow but the pay offs worth it.
4)Vin Diesel is on top form playing this character you can see for Vin is a labour of love.

Negative.
1)Slows up after an exciting first 20 minutes then takes a while to get going again.
2)It's similar to Pitch Black in tone so it loses a little originality.
