[Riddick] feels like a B-grade project made up of impressive CGI creatures, an overly CGI'd planet, and a script of clunky one-liners.

Don't waste your time on this one.

As a character, Riddick is no more than a rumble in [Vin] Diesel's throat.

What's disappointing about Riddick is that it never seems to figure out why we would want to follow the main character, outside of his propensity for violence and snark.

B-level sci-fi doesn't have to be this tedious or banal.

Seems like a side adventure.

Diesel's a guy who orders everything with extra cheese. Especially his dialogue.

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.
January 6, 2014
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.

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.
October 24, 2013
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.

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.'
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
September 19, 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.
Full Review | Original Score: B-
September 16, 2013
David Twohy's film is scarcely original, but the sheer survivalist grind of our hero, against comical odds, becomes appealingly mad ...
September 15, 2013
An economical and solidly entertaining film that recaptures everything that made Pitch Black such a cult favorite.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
September 15, 2013
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.
