Unwieldy porridge of effects and idiocy.

Twohy wants Riddick to become a great mythological figure of conflicting goodness and badness, but the character just doesn't have enough weight to sustain all that baggage.

Diesel gives a one-note performance that may be somewhat fitting of his dark and dreary character, but nonetheless grows tiresome rather quickly...

...as a proletarian concept artist, David Twohy proves that he has both the imagination and the skill to build exciting worlds for his characters to interact in.

Some may call David Twohy's film pretentious; the target market for this boys' own adventure may not actually care. . . But for me, give me a good story any day.

In throwing out wit and intelligence for mindless action, Twohy ends up with a noisy, chaotic, over-serious mess.

A escala grandiosa dos cenários e das batalhas serve apenas para esconder a fragilidade do argumento.

Should have been called "The Chronicles of Arthritic." The movie is so lame, it needs a cane by the time it lumbers into its final act.

I really can't call any of the acting good or bad. It was what it was. Vin Deisel threw around some funny one-liners. Everyone else just kinda hung out.

The Chronicles of Riddick may not be a fully intentional success. But it travels in uncharted waters, and it's a garish, nutty, virtuoso entertainment just the same.

Riddick's screwed up vision drives the original film, but Chronicles is messier and less compelling,

...a turbo-charged, sci-fi action flick with Vin Diesel in kick *** anti-hero form ...

In Pitch Black (Vin Diesel) made Riddick his own; in Chronicles, nothing has changed but the budget.

The ending leaves open the possibility of a sequel. I don't care one way or another if they make it.

How can so much action be, well, boring?

Utterly ponderous and as clunky as a crater rock. Twohy forgot to inject his Diesel-fueled narrative with the spunk and drive that made his first installment so palatable

Boasting just enough action and wisecracks for summer movie fare, the overall experience is certainly nothing that anyone need bother to write any chronicles about

Vin Diesel, the star as Neanderthal, returns for a sequel to 2000's Pitch Black.
June 18, 2004
Vin Diesel is perfect as the marquee hero, breathing new life into the muscle-head antihero and looking great in leather chain-links or Necromonger plate-mail

[Judi Dench and Vin Diesel] appear in the same movie, and indeed, perform scenes together. Unfortunately, the film is so bad that even this novelty loses its appeal.
