This review is from: The Chronicles Of Riddick [DVD]  (DVD)
Not critically acclaimed when it was released but so what? This is a a very entertaining film and is visually stunning. The quality of the special effects and action sequences is surprisingly good considering the film's vintage. It certainly stands up well against anything that has followed. Mr Diesel is not everybody's cup of tea but please don't let that put you off. He is absolutely right for this role and by the end of the film you cannot imagine anyone else playing it. The story has enough twists and turns to maintain the interest from start to end. Oh, and by the way, although this is the second Riddick film it is not necessary to watch Pitch Black first since the films are pretty much stand-alone.
