    Vin's Other Diesel-Soaked Series

    Great movie, solid transfer, but, and I'm basing this on prior excellent work out of Arrow, it appears the master had some damages that just couldn't be repaired in the transfer process, leading to portions in the rich blacks (which is funny on two levels, just due to the blacks being so deep, a high praise, considering I'm on a mid-tier 4K TV & a non-dedicated 4K player (XB1) and that this is a film with "black" right there in the title,) that end up with "scratchy-snow" dancing throughout them in some scenes, where some a perfect & quite breathtaking, compared to the black levels I've encountered in other films. Unfortunately, this is a chance you take with some older films being upgraded to 4K nowadays (has it really been two decades since Pitch Black hit theaters? Wow, I'm old lol). For fans of Pitch Black, the entire trilogy, or Vin Diesel, this is a must-own, ESPECIALLY at this under-$20 price tag & it including the "Director's Cut" (tbh, it's about 3mins of footage & I couldn't tell you what was added/changed, it's been so long, but I'm sure hardcore fans will know immediately). For others, if you're happy with your blu ray, the price point may be enough incentive, but otherwise, dampen your expectations at a pristine transfer.

    Pitch Black 4K UHD worthy upgrade

    Posted .

    An interstellar cargo/passenger ship is damaged by some meteors and is forced to crash land on a barren desert-like planet that has two suns which means there is now nightfall. Our survivors come to find that some vicious predatory creatures live in strange caves in the darkness. Eventually the survivors find an abandoned scientific camp and realize too late that full eclipse is about to happen allowing the predatory creatures to come out and hunt. Rented this way back when and thoroughly enjoyed the movie. This movie was an early role for Vin Diesel and he steals the show and cemented him as an action hero. This 4K UHD restoration is well worth the cost if you have a UHD capable system

    I love this movie. It’s such an underrated sci-fi flick that’s intriguing, freaky, and a bit terrifying at times. Also who didn’t love Vin Diesel in this?

    David Twohy's first chapter of the Riddick series arrives on 4K courtesy of Arrow Video. A small but fantastic Sc-Fi film. Arrow's release is somewhat disappointing, yes you get a brand new 4K master of the film on an UHD, the legacy features + The following NEW special features: Nightfall: The Making of Pitch Black Black Box: Jackie's Journey Black Box: Shazza's Last Stand Black Box: Bleach Bypassed Black Box: Cryo-Locked Black Box: Primal Sounds What you don't get: A Blu-ray disc. (Only an UHD disc is included) A slipcover. I would still recommend this product, and Best Buy had the lowest price in town!!

    If you love Pitch Black, this is the version to get. Much more detail than the blu-ray and better color. Tons of special features including the animated film "Dark Fury" in HD.

    Enjoyed this movie and like these Arrow Video Bluray releases too, Especially the 4K Bluray's. Only Wish Arrow would release more of the Steelbook packaging versions which this movie does not have. (Yet...)

    This is the first in the series, which, in my opinion, is Vin Diesel’s best. Four in all, Riddick is the best character Diesel has created. I was surprised to hear of the sequel, only to discover that it was Vin’s favorite as well, which is why there have been 3 sequels done so far. I still hold out hope that there’s another coming, Riddick kind of ended with the promise of more story to tell…

    Arrow Video Knocks It Outta The Park

    Arrow Video knocks it outta the park yet again with another great release to add to their growing library of cult classics, and this time around it’s in the 4K UHD format. I own a lot of titles from Arrow Video’s catalog but I don’t think I’ve ever seen one of their releases have this many extra features included, and that’s saying something, especially for a non limited edition release. It’s so much that the extra features have extra features, so you get a lot of content for your money, especially if you catch it at a cheap price like I did at $19.99. If you’re a fan of this film or sci-fi films in general, do yourself a favor and pick up a copy of this awesome 4K edition!

    Sleeper Hit that launched Vin Diesel

    Arrow's first 4k didn't disappoint. The video is in Dolby Vision and this is the best Pitch Black has ever looked including it's theatrical run 20 yrs ago. This disc has both the rated and unrated editions in 4k. The Audio is only DTS 5.1 Master Audio. A DTS:X mix with been nice, but it does decode nicely to X with a receiver. The real gem in this collection is the new special features and archival special features. This is Criterion level special features. Included is the anime movie which bridges Pitch Black and Chronicles of Riddick

    Underrated sci-fi action film

    Pitch Black is a highly engaging and visceral sci-fi action flick from 2000. The movie is well written with intelligent characters, although Vin Diesel as Riddick steals the show. This edition from Arrow Films contains only a 4K UHD disc and but no Blu-ray or digital options. There is a small booklet included as well but that will only come in first pressings.

    It's not until repeat viewings that I really came to appreciate this remarkable film. Such a well made and involving piece of cinema for what was suppose to be a low budget B-movie. The Terrain, the unique cinematography makes this film a standout watch. The 4K transfer is noticeably sharper and the colors are more natural and tight. The audio is even better. I swear it's even louder than the 1080. The low end and the dialogue are all more obvious. Replace your 1080 with this 4K transfer. You won't be disappointed

    When I saw this movie years ago I absolutely loved it. There was a little bit of everything. But the main thing I liked is that it had horror movie vibes, but wasn't over the top (compared to the jump scare filled gore feats that are everywhere now). The creepiest part of the movie was the audio. When the light would disappear and the movement and alien noises began was a little freaky, but also exciting. Only a few characters really feel fleshed out, but the obvious draw to this movie is Riddick. It's his movie and everyone else is along for the ride. The 4k transfer looks great and it appears to be a lot more crisp. I would definitely recommend this movie.

    first off lets get this out of the way! to me this IS vin disels best performance of all time! his acting is great. the movie on 4k is dark and gorgeous as its meant to be. i havent seen this movie in years and man the gore on this is nuts.the story is plain and simple, a transportation ship gets destroyed and stranded on an abandoned planet and they have to find refuge or escape before the suns go down. on the night there are dark creatures that feast on the flesh and use sonar as a way to get around if that doesn't sound interesting to you then i don't know what will. this movie HAS to be seen on 4k
