Movie Summary

Director:
David Twohy
Released:
2013
Rating:
R

Left for dead on a sun-scorched planet, fugitive Riddick fights for survival against alien predators more lethal than any human he has yet encountered. His only hope for escape is to activate an emergency beacon, but that brings with it a different problem: mercenaries. The first ship carries an especially violent and lethal group; the second is led by a man from Riddick's past. With time running out, Riddick realizes that neither group will leave without his head as trophy.

Metacritic Score

    Film.com

    Riddick is a fractured skeleton of a script, with each distinct installment scratching its own itch.

    The Hollywood Reporter Justin Lowe

    Playing it safe with a script that offers Riddick up as a lone avenging hero, Twohy passes on the opportunity to effectively shade the character's distinctive dimensionality.

    Movie Nation Roger Moore

    Like Vin Diesel, it has bulk, lumbering clumsily along as it repeats Diesel's greatest hits — the ones that don't require him to drive a fast and furious car.

  • Hard but not terrible.

    This is a very hard character in terms of what you usually see in SF films but it is also a good character. I have seen the other Riddick films and I thought they borrowed from a french graphic novel artist called Phillipe Druilet who did many unusual but interesting graphic novels in the SF genre mostly in the 1970's. I like all kinds of SF and this film worked but-and there is always a but-it could have been more visually varied. Other than that is was worth whatever I paid to see it-in a smaller theatre in a smaller town while on a trip not so long ago.moreless
