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.

Our taciturn hero is back. This time dumped on some random planet which, of course, has breathable air and water! The dumper is one of Commander Vaako's lackeys, Krone, who manages to bury Riddick alive under a 100 tonnes of rock after Riddick dispatches four necromongers following an attempt to double-cross him in the wake of his obvious aversion to his new role as Lord Marshall.

Miraculously, Riddick survives the attempt with nothing worse than a broken leg, which he immediately `sets about' sorting out with, of course, the minimum of fuss. He then sets out to explore his new surroundings: not much flora but some typically nasty fauna in the form of particularly hideous things that look like the love children of a giant scorpion and the big daddy of all aliens; that designed by H. R. Giger!

But then we're not talking about Ripley, as feisty as she is, or Dallas et.al, but Riddick; the ultimate lean, mean alien killing machine, who might reasonably be regarded as a kind of fictional descendant of Lee Child's Jack Reacher.

The giant `scorpions' aren't the only animal nasties roaming about: Riddick is cornered by a pack of dogs or more accurately, hyenas on steroids! Imagine a hyena wearing `The Mask' and you'll get the picture. He escapes their fearsome fangs and captures one of their pups who accepts him as the `alpha male'.

Eventually, Riddick and pet discover evidence of human habitation in an apparently unused mercenary station. He sets off an emergency beacon, which attracts two teams in the area who land in the vicinity and proceed to argue between themselves about how best to go about hunting down Riddick and receiving the bounty. These people seem endlessly naive and beyond hopelessly optimistic; surely they must know who they're dealing with?
