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.

Bit formulaic, especially if you have seen Pitch Black. I think the demand for the character (Riddick) is high but after the panning (though not by me!) of the second film, The Chronicles Of Riddick, it seems those in charge of the character development returned to the successful first film rather than extend the finish (in any meaningful way) of the end of the second. Pity - I suspect that would have been a much better film.

So a loss of a star for that and another for wasting the talents of Katee Sackhoff as eye candy, "all pretty like".

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'

Our taciturn hero is back. This time dumped on some random planet which, of course, has breathable air and water! The dumper is one of Commander Vaako's lackeys, Krone, who manages to bury Riddick alive under a 100 tonnes of rock after Riddick dispatches four necromongers following an attempt to double-cross him in the wake of his obvious aversion to his new role as Lord Marshall.

Miraculously, Riddick survives the attempt with nothing worse than a broken leg, which he immediately `sets about' sorting out with, of course, the minimum of fuss. He then sets out to explore his new surroundings: not much flora but some typically nasty fauna in the form of particularly hideous things that look like the love children of a giant scorpion and the big daddy of all aliens; that designed by H. R. Giger!

But then we're not talking about Ripley, as feisty as she is, or Dallas et.al, but Riddick; the ultimate lean, mean alien killing machine, who might reasonably be regarded as a kind of fictional descendant of Lee Child's Jack Reacher.

The giant `scorpions' aren't the only animal nasties roaming about: Riddick is cornered by a pack of dogs or more accurately, hyenas on steroids! Imagine a hyena wearing `The Mask' and you'll get the picture. He escapes their fearsome fangs and captures one of their pups who accepts him as the `alpha male'.

Eventually, Riddick and pet discover evidence of human habitation in an apparently unused mercenary station. He sets off an emergency beacon, which attracts two teams in the area who land in the vicinity and proceed to argue between themselves about how best to go about hunting down Riddick and receiving the bounty. These people seem endlessly naive and beyond hopelessly optimistic; surely they must know who they're dealing with?
