Plot Outline:

Betrayed and left for dead on a sun-scorched planet, Riddick fights for survival against vicious predators - and in the process becomes more powerful than before. The only way off is to activate a beacon - a beacon that brings bounty hunters and mercenaries directly to him - including one that is very personal. If he hopes to escape, he will have to fight his way out. -- Chris Kavan

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.

"Riddick" by Yojimbo

Left for dead on a hostile planet, Riddick communes with nature to regain his edge and forges an uneasy alliance with a group of mercenaries to escape from a swarm of vicious indigenous creatures. David Twohy's sci-fi B-movie franchise abandons its pretensions to becoming a grand space opera and returns to its roots as a straightforward alien monster movie. It pretty much ignores everything that happened in Chronicles Of Riddick, preferring to become a cover version of its first incarnation Pitch Black. Once again a gang of disparate characters are holed up in a hostile environment and menaced by a horde of alien creatures, but this time the characters are a bunch of unlikeable thugs instead of people you really want to root for, and the fact that the creatures are in plain view at all ti...

Testosterone Filled Action packed flick

Riddick is crowned king of his enemies, the all- conquering cult the Necromongers but gets betrayed by his jealous rival Vaako (Karl Urban returning for a one-scene cameo) while searching for his original home planet of Furya.

Kicked off a cliff in a desolate alien-infested planet, he is forced to seek shelter from the harsh rocky landscape and the vicious alien creatures that inhabit it. Needing a ride out of there, he sends a distress beacon which calls down two separate teams of Mercenaries, one a decent professional outfit run by Johns (Matt Nable) and his tough right hand woman Dahl (Katee Sackhoff).

The other is a bunch of crude bad space pirates led by the vicious and unpleasant Santana (Jordi Molla). Both groups are looking for Vin, but for different reasons; Santana want...

Riddick-ulously Average

I'm new-ish to this movie series. That is, I'm familiar with the character of Riddick, but haven't seen the previous two films. This third part doesn't offer much to newbies in terms of backstory, character, or anything to do with the universe of the films. The beginning was promising. It starts off with Riddick alone on a desert planet, just trying to survive the elements and creatures with nothing. An entertaining setup, until the rest of the cast arrives. From here on out, it becomes a cliched and predictable affair, complete with bad dialogue and uninteresting characters (not to mention sub-par f/x). It's joyless in lack of effort, but not in lampooning ability. Overall, it generates the feeling of a good Sy-Fy channel flick, which is about the equivalent of a severely mediocr...
