De ja vu?,
This review is from: Riddick [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
I muat say it was refreshing for an actor to want to stay true to the charecter he or she was playing vin diesal was offered a sequel to the chronicless of riddick if he did a toned down 12a version.Not only did he turn it down he waited till the rights of the film were avalible to buy amd stumped up a big chunk of his own money to create riddick.As a big action film fan i salute mr diesal for not selling out and for flying the flag for action films and heros as their are to few left or alowed to do thses sort of films because theh are frightened someone may get offended and so they can vet more bums on seats.I thought the film was good the only two draw backs i found was it started a bit slow and the story seemed very very simular to that of pitch black just with a different planet and different set of aliens.Instead of them coming out in the dark these ones come out in the rain.Those to things aside the film flowed nice after the initial slow start the action seens were brutal no nonsense toned down tosh we see in most the films these days i also like the references to pitch black and the chronicles of riddick that happen through out the film.I hope this film does well as i think with a bigger budget the special effects can be polished up a bit and i belive this film is a good template and sets up well for a sequel.

I agree with you, i think that the next film should be about riddick finding "vhacho", i may have pronounced that wrong, for betraying him.

Check the extended cut, It's not Vakko who betrayed Riddick.
