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' revisits his role as 'Riddick'
When betrayed by his own, and left for dead on a seemingly desolate
planet, 'Riddick' is in fact 'ever-so-slightly alive, he sets out to
regain his strength and adjust his life to survive what is proving
to be a dangerous place to be.
Soon 'Riddick' is joined on this nowhere planet by bounty-hunters from
around the galaxy, one group wanting his 'head' the other information
first, death afterwards.
However this 'one' guy isn't gonna' roll-over anytime soon, all 'Riddick'
wants is a 'ride' off the God-forsaken Planet before things get a whole
lot worse.
(one or two interesting creatures along the way)
An enjoyable Sci-Fi adventure, with great action sequences and a heap of
impressive C.G.I (special-effects)...........great Blu-Ray and sound
quality throughout.
Extra's : 'Vin's' Riddick.......'Meet the 'Mercs'.......and 'Riddick:-
Blindside'...........Exclusive to Blu-Ray features: Both theatrical
version and 'Director's Cut( I watched the latter) also 'The Twohy Touch'
'Riddickian Tech' and the 'World of Riddick'

This, perhaps surprisingly, is a very good film. It doesn’t pretend to be anything it isn’t and doesn’t take itself too seriously; it’s just a well constructed sci-fi action film with atmosphere and lots of stuff happening.

The action begins some time after Riddick’s ascendancy to the throne of the Necromongers with him injured and marooned on some godforsaken planet where the local fauna is far from friendly. A rather long flashback dream sequence documents his fall from grace and then, in true Riddick fashion he just gets on with the business of recovering and battling the aforementioned wildlife, befriending a rather improbably dog-like creature along the way.

This preamble does seem a little slow (it is probably shorter in the theatrical release), but it is really setting the scene and drawing the viewer into the Riddick universe before the action begins in earnest. The action arrives in the form of a couple of bands of mercenaries / bounty hunters both of which want Riddick but for different reasons. Their numbers are, of course, whittled down and it is pretty obvious what is going to happen in the end, but along the way we’re treated to hardcore action and some splendid sci-fi movie references; most notably the splendid wtf moment from Alien3. Marvellous.

Refreshingly, the narrative dovetails very neatly with Pitch Black (still a firm favourite) and, considering the cast of monolithic stock action characters, the atmosphere is consistent, the pace & tension are well managed, there is a surprisingly witty side to some of the dialogue and the whole thing just rolls along very nicely indeed. Being written and directed by the same chap who brought us Riddick’s previous two outings, this splendidly simple and engaging movie brings a very welcome dose of brain-out brooding sci-fi action. Excellent stuff.

The second film in this series the Chronicles of Riddick wasn't quite the box office success studios expected (though I rather liked it) and appeared to be the end of the series. Vin Diesel however, according to the internet movie data base, agreed to make a cameo appearance in Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift in exchange for the rights to the Riddick franchise allowing him years later to produce Riddick independently.

Written and directed by David Twohy (who also did both Pitch Black and Chronicles of Riddick) Riddick draws a lot of parallels with Pitch Black's plot (no bad thing). Betrayed by the Necromonger army and left on a hostile world full of monsters to die Riddick fights for his very survival. Eventually finding a Merc outpost Riddick hits the beacon to alert nearby ships to his presence drawing in two Merc vessels both after Riddick for very different reasons. However soon the Mercs have to work together with Riddick to survive as on this planet, he isn't the only thing they have to worry about.

The first half an hour is pretty slow but really shows Riddick as a hard as nails survivor the series has always alluded him to be, despite the pace this is one of the best parts of the film in my opinion. Once the mercs show up things get a lot more exciting as Riddick plays them against each other slowly taking them out. The mercs themselves are all actually surprisingly well established showing quite a lot of personality, some of which are genuinely quite funny as they get worn down by Riddick.
