If you are a fan of sci-fi, of horror, and/or of the mix of the two genres, you should find plenty to enjoy here and I recommend the film to you.

Maybe the return of Xander Cage will be better.

He's spent the bulk of his career hiding in franchises, hypermasculinizing himself. We can live with this. But this new movie makes you wonder whether Diesel can.

Vue Weekly (Edmonton, Canada)

A general scuzziness and dinginess starts to creep over the picture like a mold ... soon, it's hard to get your heart-rate up over whether or not the coming wave of scorpo-aliens kill these scowling, sneering bags of man-meat.

Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)

Too Riddick-ulous to recommend, although a few of the more outlandish effects are a hoot (gorehounds will dig what the captive Riddick does with that machete).

Riddick turns out to be one of the most pleasantly surprising multiplex films so far this year...bizarre as it sounds, the film essentially shapes up as a quality chamber piece set in the dusty wastes of an alien planet.

Quad City Times (Davenport, IA)

This is the real sequel to 'Pitch Black,' although it took about nine years for star Vin Diesel to accomplish it. The stories of Richard Riddick need to be R-rated fare, not the PG-13 stuff of 'The Chronicles of Riddick.'

September 28, 2013

The third installment in Vin Diesel's adventures as über-badass, glowing contacts-wearing murderer Riddick begins like the original Pitch Black, then turns into something like a low-grade slasher movie with tedious Chronicles Of Riddick-like dialogue.

Twohy gets back to basics, returning the character to his B-movie roots in a stripped-down tale of competition and survival.

Put simply, it's not a great film but it's still watchable.

David Twohy's film is scarcely original, but the sheer survivalist grind of our hero, against comical odds, becomes appealingly mad ...

An economical and solidly entertaining film that recaptures everything that made Pitch Black such a cult favorite.

Putting the fury back into the Furyan, Riddick recaptures the stripped-back edge of Pitch Black, opting for an R-rated, back-to-basics survivalist romp that suits the character far better.

Riddick brings the character back to what people enjoyed about Pitch Black; Twohy's Diesel idolatry aside there's entertaining sci-fi action thrills to be had, once.

A step up from the 2004 slumber party The Chronicles of Riddick but still a few rungs down the ladder from 2000's pitch-perfect Pitch Black.

American Profile

It isn't a string of polished sci-fi pearls, but it does deliver pretty much what fans expect: action, creatures, effects, dry humor, and a grown-up mix of skin, blood and language.

Television Without Pity

I'm not sure that Riddick is an effective argument in favor of continuing Riddick's solo adventures, but it's a more fitting conclusion to his chronicles than the previous movie.

Once again, the film is so over-serious that it's faintly ridiculous, but it's packed with nerve-jangling moments.

Riddick justifies its existence purely through a good sense of violent fun.
