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.
September 13, 2013
Once again, the film is so over-serious that it's faintly ridiculous, but it's packed with nerve-jangling moments.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5

Riddick justifies its existence purely through a good sense of violent fun.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
September 12, 2013
A vibrant stylistic mishmash that works brilliantly in chunks but is ultimately too scattered to sustain any cohesion.
September 12, 2013
"Riddick" is a big step up from "Chronicles," with Twohy abandoning the failed epic scope of that movie and somewhat recapturing what made "Pitch Black" the cult hit it is.

The film regains its footing in a pretty terrifically-executed, if generic, final sequence.
Full Review | Original Score: 6/10
September 12, 2013
Vin Diesel is hot again thanks to "Fast and Furious 6" and has the physique and force of personality necessary to carry this action film

One would suspect that a man who took such audacious risks in the second film would have a few more surprises up his sleeve for the third round, but I guess not.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
September 11, 2013
Viscerally ferocious, delivering brawny, low-octane Diesel.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/10
September 10, 2013
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
September 10, 2013
This sequel is less like a video game than the grandiosely titled Chronicles, offering a gritty, boy's own adventure that is a bit like Outward Bound with no instructors... The film's main appeal lies in the hulking form of Vin Diesel
September 10, 2013
an acceptable sci-fi actioner, though after all this time, it ultimately rates as a safe return for the title character, rather than one that really grabs the audience by the throat and goes in for the kill.
September 10, 2013
So disconnected from its previous installments - the 2000 survival thriller "Pitch Black" and the 2004 fantasy "The Chronicles of Riddick" - that maybe they should have started from scratch.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
September 10, 2013
Not a great movie, but it is a decent summer action film, and there haven't been many of those this year.

I will not be giving anything away by saying that the final frames of "Riddick" blatantly sets us up for "More Adventures of Riddick."

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.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4

Riddick! Because one name says it all - and not nearly enough - all at the same time! Riddick! Because "Riddikulous" has too many syllables.
Full Review | Original Score: F
September 9, 2013
A derivative disappointment that's more of an uninspired remake than a groundbreaking sequel.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4
September 9, 2013
The script promptly shoots itself in the equal-ops foot with some repellently ill-judged rapey "humour", promptly undermining any residual goodwill.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
September 9, 2013
Riddick returns to its B-movie roots.
