Maybe the return of Xander Cage will be better.

Not that it was expected to be a sci-fi masterpiece, but after an absence of nine years, you would expect a result a little better than retreading old ground.

A vibrant stylistic mishmash that works brilliantly in chunks but is ultimately too scattered to sustain any cohesion.

Part of me wants to support this franchise on the grounds of how rare it is for an original science-fiction concept to get a full trilogy of theater-released feature films, but Riddick makes that damn near impossible.

Forbidding, sun-scorched, deadly. But enough about Vin Diesel's pectorals. Come back. We got more . . .

As a creature feature, Riddick isn't half bad, though it's far from truly good.

Riddick lacks the soulless, mechanised groan of the previous film, but even stripping away the excess, this disappointing jaunt has very little meat on its bones.

Twohy succeeds in staging moments both tense and funny, but they're fewer and farther between than one would hope, and the dialogue is served up with a heaping helping of cheese, especially when delivered in Diesel's low-frequency growl.

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

Las Vegas Weekly

A poorly paced, generic action movie with cheap-looking special effects, only a step or two above the sci-fi fare that goes straight to video.

Awww, a heartwarming story about a Diesel and his digital dingo dog...

Gratuitous nudity involving the appropriately-named actress Katee Sackhoff (Dahl) fails to distract from the clunky dialogue and the film's climax is, frankly, Riddickulous.

If you were to make a comedy about an actor who makes cheesy sci-fi action movies, and you needed a hilarious clip of his work that underscored the awfulness of his output, just about any 30-second segment of Riddick would do the trick.

Diesel's character never really gets scared. He's just arrogant. Morning, noon and night...he's a horses butt. That doesn't make for an interesting story.

ScreenCrush

'Riddick,' the overdue, and largely unwanted, third installment in Diesel's first big film series, is so full of tough-guy overcompensation that it makes the 'Fast and Furious' movies seem like understated character studies by comparison.

The first (and one hopes the last) film to borrow heavily from both Alien and Old Yeller.

For a film about a killing machine who can see at night, it's fittingly ironic that the film itself is, both narratively and visually, a dark, muddled mess.

A derivative disappointment that's more of an uninspired remake than a groundbreaking sequel.

Like so much in this film, Riddick himself is a special effect, a near-superhuman hero who can withstand just about anything and who not so much gains our sympathy as demands our attention
