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.

Riddick finally returns in a film that really has some bite to it. it has a very distinct (and rigid) three act structure that follows on from The Chronicles of Riddick and Pitch Black.
It spends a good half an hour watching how Riddick survives on a desolate, barren world and introduces the threat that will shape how things play out later. After that the mercs come in in two groups, one with the aim to put Riddicks head in a box and the other to catch him for reasons other than just money.
Riddick proceeds to toy with them in what I most enjoyed about the film, he's always just out of the mercs sight and uses the planet and their tools against them in a guerilla campaign to demoralise and thin their numbers.
As the film progresses it becomes more horror oriented but managed to live up to my expectations for the series and really seems to be a passionately made film aimed squarely at its fans.

'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'

Vin Diesel is back playing one of his greatest roles, Riddick is the third instalment to the franchise and is certainly one of the best, it goes back to its pitch black roots on a dark and desolate planet surrounded by danger at every turn, great visual look to the film, amazing effects, very violent as usual as you would expect it is certainly better going back to R rated territory, the story is very cool, great cast all round, exciting action and effects, a top Sci-Fi really worth checking out, its certainly stands apart from most of the other comical so called Sci-Fi this year!!

Great to see the return of Riddick and in general this was an immensely enjoyable piece of sci-fi action in the same style as its previous two parts. Definitely a worthy addition to the series and Riddick himself is on top form as the lethal anti-hero in peril. The love and devotion to the franchise shines through in this movie, it was made with great care for the material and it shows.

Problems? There are a few. First and foremost the lack of a decent opponent or any real threat to Riddick as he seems able to fight his way out of anything and lacks any sort of fear or vulnerability. The character of 'Johns' is meant to be his nemesis here but Johns never provides any real threat or indeed presence.

Second problem is the poor continuity with the previous movies. The ending of 'Chronicles of Riddick' is dealt with and forgotten within the first few scenes of 'Riddick' and then we are back to square one with Riddick as a lone refugee stranded on a strange world with dangerous aliens and monsters. Sound familiar? That's because it becomes a re-hash of Pitch Black pretty soon into the movie.

The aliens/monsters are great, and especially the dogs. But the human cast are lacking in motivation and threat. I would like to see Riddick up against a real human antagonist able to challenge him physically and strategically. What about somebody with see-in-the-dark ability or some equal power to his?

There were odd moments that remind us (rather uncomfortably) that Riddick is not a nice person and we should not like him. (He even hints at rapist tendancies at one point). For me these moments spoil him as a character, or perhaps that is the idea, to make us feel uncomfortable rooting for him?
