This is the first and best of the series, full of simplicity and tension in a unique sci-fi world. Vin Diesel gives an understated performance here that conveys more emotion and intensity than in any of his future, more action-oriented roles.

Pitch Black review

Carolyn Fry (Radha Mitchell) informs her co-pilot, Greg Owens (Simon Burke) that the Captain is dead. They try to maneuver a crashing ship with people namely Paris (Lewis Fitz-Gerald), Shazza, Muslim Imam (Keith David), a young boy named Jack (Rhiana Griffith), Zeke (John Moore) and Johns (Cole Hauser) and Ali. Convict/murderer Richard B. Riddick (Vin Diesel) escapes. Zeke gets killed and they are susecting it was Riddick. Riddick tells Fry it wasn't him. Visual effects and set pieces were impressive. Screenplay had some sublimnal messages such as: "Trees mean water." "Watch your mouth." "Let's just stick to the deal."The creed is greed." "I was wrong. I admit." and "I would die for them." The scene between Imam and Riddick regading a God was somewhat ill-advised. Overall, Pitch ...

"Pitch Black" by Yoijimbo

The passengers on a space transport turn to a ruthless prisoner for help when their ship crash lands on a deserted planet inhabited by a swarm of flesh eating nocturnal creatures.

His charismatic presence lifts the film above the crowd of low budget cult sci-fis out there and thanks to some creative and economical direction from David Twohy it cracks along with the appropriate tension and atmosphere required for this kind of thing to work. It clearly lifts a lot of ideas from the first two Alien films but it does it with a modicom of style despite some slightly dated looking SFX. The only serious flaw is that Radha Mitchell is a little lacking for a ce...
