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.

Bluray Info.
Running time 119 minutes theatrical cut, 128 minutes extended cut, Extras Vin's Riddick, Meet the Mercs, Riddicks Blindside & Blu ray exclusive The Twohy Touch.

Great Blu ray sharp picture quality & superb sound throughout the movie, No glitches or any loading problems.

Trivia.
1)Vin Diesel made a cameo appearance in Fast & The Furious Tokyo Drift in exchange for the right's to the Riddick character which he was allowed to produce independently.
2)Riddick takes place 5 year's after The Chronicles Of Riddick which took place 5 year's after Pitch Black making this movie 10 year's set after the original although 13 year's have passed between production on Riddick & Pitch Black.

Review.
Vin Diesel has had to put everything on the line to get this movie funded, From obtaining the rights to the character from Universal Pictures to investing his own money to get the additional funding to get it made, So for that I tip my hat to you Mr Diesel.

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.

I liked Pitch Black and I loved Chronicles. I'm not saying I don't like this, but some scenes are almost picked straight from Pitch Black, eg, sitting on top of the spacecraft, fighting face-to-face with the creatures. I was hoping to learn more about Furyan and the Necromongers, but we got a low budget, but superior, remake of Pitch Black / Starship Troopers 2 / Alien v Predator, etc. What happened to Karl Urban as Lord Vaako? It's left me wanting more, and just a little dis-satisfied.

The film started well but it quickly became apparent that what should have been the first part of the film became the plot for the whole film. Then it tried to copy pitch black and failed.

It's good, not as good as The Chronicles Of Riddick, but still worth a watch, especially if you like Vin Diesel.

Not disappointed in this one either Riddick does not get is own way in fact the beginning of the film was gruelling to watch and for Riddick! With out spoiling it for anyone it did show is slightly 'soft' side, but what a said ending for his 'friend'. The special effects were very good.

First the quality of the bluray picture is very good .but I dont know if its just me but I am finding that the special effects in films like this that are shot with a lot of greenscreen are becoming increasingly jarring .there are times in this that the effects seem no better then flash gordon .especially reminded of that with the hover bikes sequences.as for the story itself , I would skip the first twenty minutes or so and the whole riddick gets a puppy bit and go straight to the riddick needs a ride story , this where it became a lot more entertaining and nearly made me forget the first part of the movie .I feel that if they go for a fourth film that Twohy would do better to maybe just produce and hand the character over to someone with a fresh prospective. Save your money watch on netflicks or the other one , not one to watch again and again .also would like to meet the reviewer from the daily star who thought this was "the action movie of the year ".given it three stars only cos there wasn't an option to give it 2 1/2 .
