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 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!!

Just saw the movie and loved it. I greatly enjoyed the first and second films so I've been looking forward to this since it was announced. It's a great sci-fi bad-ass action movie. Plenty of cheesy one-liners and good action scenes set in a sci-fi world.

The story wasn't anything spectacular, no breaking new ground here but it does set the stage for the next (hope we get a next!!!!). Graphics were well-done, alien life wasn't anything unique but were suitably scary.

If you liked the 1st and/or 2nd film you'll enjoy this.

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.
