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.'
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.
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
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.
