Another tail about the criminal, Riddick. Betrayed and left for dead on an unknown planet by his own kind, Riddick must go up against alien creatures and send a beacon so he can get off world. Two ships come for him: One, a pack of bounty hunters who want nothing more then ‘his head in a box’ and another who’s captain wants to talk to Riddick about his past. As the two crew’s decide what to do with Riddick, night is falling and they’ll have no choice but to relay on the criminal that can see in the dark, but can he be trusted to save them. . .
This movie has some of elements of what made 2000's “Pitch Black” so good. But nothing really happens for the first twenty minutes of the movie. Riddick pows around with a dingo alien puppy as he takes out snake creatures. While the story is a little flat, fans of Pitch Black will love seeing the ‘Riddick vision’ again and the cinematography was well worth the twenty minutes of ‘waiting for something to happen.’ Other than that movie goers of this genera are sure to love this instalment of the film.
