Don't waste your time on this one.

B-level sci-fi doesn't have to be this tedious or banal.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5
September 8, 2017
[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.

Maybe the return of Xander Cage will be better.
September 9, 2013
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.

September 12, 2013
A vibrant stylistic mishmash that works brilliantly in chunks but is ultimately too scattered to sustain any cohesion.
September 4, 2013
Part of me wants to support this franchise on the grounds of how rare it is for an original science-fiction concept to get a full trilogy of theater-released feature films, but Riddick makes that damn near impossible.

Forbidding, sun-scorched, deadly. But enough about Vin Diesel's pectorals. Come back. We got more . . .

As a creature feature, Riddick isn't half bad, though it's far from truly good.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
September 2, 2013
Riddick lacks the soulless, mechanised groan of the previous film, but even stripping away the excess, this disappointing jaunt has very little meat on its bones.

September 4, 2013
Twohy succeeds in staging moments both tense and funny, but they're fewer and farther between than one would hope, and the dialogue is served up with a heaping helping of cheese, especially when delivered in Diesel's low-frequency growl.

Put simply, it's not a great film but it's still watchable.
Full Review | Original Score: B-
September 6, 2013
A poorly paced, generic action movie with cheap-looking special effects, only a step or two above the sci-fi fare that goes straight to video.

September 4, 2013
Awww, a heartwarming story about a Diesel and his digital dingo dog...
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
September 6, 2013
Gratuitous nudity involving the appropriately-named actress Katee Sackhoff (Dahl) fails to distract from the clunky dialogue and the film's climax is, frankly, Riddickulous.

September 4, 2013
If you were to make a comedy about an actor who makes cheesy sci-fi action movies, and you needed a hilarious clip of his work that underscored the awfulness of his output, just about any 30-second segment of Riddick would do the trick.

Riddick disappoints.

September 6, 2013
Diesel's character never really gets scared. He's just arrogant. Morning, noon and night...he's a horses butt. That doesn't make for an interesting story.
Full Review | Original Score: D
September 4, 2013
'Riddick,' the overdue, and largely unwanted, third installment in Diesel's first big film series, is so full of tough-guy overcompensation that it makes the 'Fast and Furious' movies seem like understated character studies by comparison.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/10
September 5, 2013
The first (and one hopes the last) film to borrow heavily from both Alien and Old Yeller.
