    Great production design & Vin Diesel is fun. Alas, terrible dialogue & headache inducing fight scenes full of quickly intercut close-ups. Some wide shots please. Oh and story... apparently something was going on. But watchable.

    this is the best science fiction movie of all time the best movie of 2004 and one of the top 100 movies of all time and forget about all the imposters who don't understand what 'science' or 'fiction' mean; i've read their reviews; if you don't have the ability to appreciate science fiction, then please go review a jane austen based movie

    this is one of the best space action movies i know. Riddicks one liners and badassery makes this a movie i watch every few years with joy. Also colors, camera work and effects is pretty good. they tell that story very good and immerse. It never gets boring. If you like a movie where one (anti)hero just owns 90 minutes straight kicking ass and one liners look no further, this is the right movie for you.

    The sequel to Pitch Black is very ambitious and almost feels so out of left field. These two movies feel totally different. Ditching the Horror and R rating, The Chronicles of Riddick delivers an epic Sci-fi action adventure that takes the convict/murderer Riddick and makes him a true anti hero. This movies set pieces look stunning and the world building in this movie is very ambitious. Its a pretty fun movie, not perfect by any means. There are pacing issues, and some story telling issues. But I admire the epic feel to it and thinking outside the box. They had a trilogy in mind so theres alpt of questions left unresolved and that was by design. If you saw Pitch Black no one would have predicted this would be the sequel. Its a shame that the movie was forced to a PG-13 rating but with 100 million budget the studio wouldn't have it any other way. I love how this got a huge budget but what was Universal thinking? They made a high budget sequel to a movie that no one really saw in the first place 5 years later. I know Vin Diesel was coming off of Fast and Furious and XXX but probably wasnt the best idea to sink all of this money into this project. I prefer to watch the unrated directors cut which in my opinion is the better version adding 15 extra minutes and giving better backstory than the theatrical release. It sucks we had to wait 9 years to get a sequel to this but at least we got one. This was a huge flop that gets alot of hate and i don't really understand it. Riddick is a cool character who fears nothing and can kill a man with his tea cup lol. If you're an fan of action and or sci this movie delivers. 3.5 out of 5

    I grew up with this movie and watching it now years later, it hasn’t aged as well in terms of the special effects. It’s still a decent movie though. It’s not one that’s going to wow you or impress you. But just turn your brain off and take it for what it is. A fight for the throne. All the characters and the acting is so so but in general, it’s just cool being in a different world, during a different time, and you don’t know who is going to survive until the end. Vin Diesel looks sick is the main character. He’s fun because he’s so cocky.
