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.

Quality.
A great clear sharp vibrant picture quality with superb crystal clear sound throughout the movie, I've experienced no glitches or 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.

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.

Vin Diesel.... That should be enough for a review in itself.
Riddick.... Again I shouldn't have to say more.

But I will, for those that loved Pitch Black (more so those that weren't a fan of the Chronicles of Riddick), this film brings back all of the brilliance that was from the first film. While I do like all of the Riddick films, I think I have to say this is my favourite, You see him Broken at the beginning, the film explains what happened in regards to the Necro's and then it gets going on another Desolate world that seems to want to kill you at every opportunity. There is a nice twist in the storyline of which I won't spoil.

I will however say this, I am most disappointed in the fact they killed off Riddicks pet!!!

Pitch Black and the Chronicles of Riddick were absolute classic films - a great original storyline with action throughout. This was completely different - a long dragged out, pointless, predictable beginning followed by a weak storyline with weak acting and no real plot. I just can't believe this film was this disappointing when it had so much potential. The film consisted of cheesy and ridiculous one liners that
completely undermined the characterisation of Riddick in the previous films.
There is so much dialogue that adds literally nothing to the story, cliché scenes of tension and terrible script writing.
If you enjoyed the first two, you will be seriously dissapointed by this film.
