Movie Summary

Director:
David Twohy
Released:
2000
Rating:
R

Criminal, Richard Riddick is being transported to prison in a cargo spaceship when a freak meteor shower damages their ship. Forced into an emergency crash landing on a deserted planet with three suns and no night, the survivors are bewildered by their surroundings. They have crashed landed on Hades, otherwise known as M6-117 and the dead desert planet is harboring a secret. Co-pilot Carolyn Fry and police officer William Johns set out with other survivors to find shelter or water on the scorched planet but what they learn scares them to their core. Hades is home to savage mutant creatures, Bioraptors, who live deep within the surface of the planet. These bloodthirsty beasts have killed all previous residents of the scorched planet. When members of their group are killed by the mutant Bioraptors, they are forced to turn to the criminal Riddick for help. Staying in the light can protect them for now, but with a total eclipse of the sun due any day, can they find the strength to survive once again?
