Pitch Black is such a stinker that it makes Twohy's previous sci-fi thriller, The Arrival, look halfway decent.

Antagony & Ecstasy

A solid creature feature, but not at all a revelatory one.

Original Riddick pic is violent, with teamwork rewarded.

...your typical run-for-your-life-the-monsters-are-coming science fiction adventure that requires one to park his brain at the front door of the theater before entering.

One of the better sci-fi movies to come around in a very long time.

A fairly efficient science fiction monster film, somewhat in the mold of an old 1950s B-movie.

If only there had been as much time spent on creating believable aliens as there obviously was on the landscape.

One Guy's Opinion

Under the circumstances it's not really fair to blame the actors, whose amateurishness seems appropriate to the material (although Diesel's stolid machismo is so over-the-top as to be pretty laughable).

A smart, suspenseful sci-fi movie from director Twohy, whose underrated 1996 film, The Arrival, also brought visual imagination and intelligence to the genre.

Manages to surprise and delight, thanks to its small-scale attitude.

Hey man, it's February. You've already picked through all the leftover Oscar-bait you can take, so it's no time to be picky.

The derivativeness of the script keeps any tensions from building into any kind of scariness.

Some hard-core science-fiction fans might nit-pick over details in Pitch Black, but for the average moviegoer looking to be entertained, this roller-coaster of a film should not be missed.

At least as much as The Blair Witch Project before it, Pitch Black shows us how disconcerting total darkness can be.
