I believe if Vin Diesel had everything he needed, Riddick would have been awesome. As it is, he may have the rights, but was hamstrung by a low budget - as it stands, the CG is adequate at best (though the beasties are quite inventive) and the mercenaries - even with Katee Sackoff, Dave Bautista and Jordi Molla giving it their all - are pedestrian at best. Diesel remains the best part of this franchise - calm, cool and utterly invincible. Hopefully there will be a next time.

A disappointingly pedestrian Riddick outing after the underrated second Riddick movie. Here, the budget has been stripped way down, which limits the scope of the action sequences and the special effects considerably. In addition, the plot is about as predicable and cliché as you can possibly get. On the plus side, the first half hour or so is lot of fun with Riddick trying to survive on a planet filled with nasty CGI monsters, but the movie really bogs down once a ship arrives on the planet filled with a group of very dull mercenaries. From this point on the movie is unfortunately average at best.

Have to agree with a fellow critic. It starts off strong with Riddick's method of survival. It goes downhill with some ridiculous characters and dreary screenplay. The plot was not that interesting since it just rehashed the same story of the previous installments, he has a bounty and just wants to go home. Even the conclusion was a bore. If only they could come up with a better story and a worthy opponent instead of everybody fearing him. Overall, probably the worst of the trilogy.
