    Riddick, a sequel to The Chronicles of Riddick, takes place some time after that film with Riddick getting "fat", as fat as a buff Vin Diesel can be, and complacent. The necromongers are conspiring to oust Riddick as their leader by dangling the carrot of his homeworld "Furia" in front of him. After being betrayed and left for dead on a planet call, well "not Furia" Riddick must regain his animal side with the first 30 dedicated to a long form montage of him learning the land and fighting some monsters. Later Riddick finds a Merc station and hit's the emergency button to call someone to get him off the plant. The remainder of the movie is a cat-and-mouse game between Riddick and the mercs in an attempt to steal on of their ships to get off the planet before an impending storm, which will bring with it blood thirsty "mud" monsters, (It's actually less stupid than is sounds). This movie is clearly made for the fans, in fact Vin even mortgaged his house to finance the film, don't worry he turned a profit, and actually Universal wants him to make another. A good film worth a buy for fans of the franchise, even if it is somewhat forgetable.

    This blu-ray is a must have for any Riddick fan. Don't settle for the theatrical release. The directors cut answers some questions about what happened between the Chronicles of Riddick and this movie that the theatrical version has edited out. This particular set has blu-ray, dvd, and digital download and is the best value for your money. Anyone who loved the original Riddick film, Pitch Black, will love this movie. It does have a very similar plot theme to the original Pitch Black: they're on an alien planet where everything wants to kill them and they must escape. But it has enough originality to be different, and still has all the things that we came to love about Riddick in the first movie. Sci-fi fans will also enjoy the performance by Katee Sackhoff (the new Battlestar Galactica's Starbuck) as well as the fantastic performances from the other actors, including one of which who will make you dislike his character so much that you will look forward to his demise (bravo Jordi Mollà!). That's all I can say without posting any spoilers!

    Riddick picks up after the Chronicles of Riddick, which tried really hard to be "epic" and only partly succeeded. This story quickly relocates our hero from the throne back to being abandoned on a planet to die with bad guy bounty hunters looking for him, so fortunately the "epic" nature has been thrown out (good riddance!) The movie is really more of a rehash of Pitch Black, which is good and bad -- good, because Pitch Black was actually a really good movie, and bad, because, well, I've seen this movie already. Weird planet has once-in-a-while special weather that herald the coming of monstrous creatures. Riddick must survive and get off planet. Much blood and stalking of bad guys ensues. Sound familiar? Yeah, exactly. Aside from bad language, bloody violence, there's a gratuitous scene of Starbuck's boobs. But doubtful you'd be letting your 10-year-old watch this anyway.

    Ever since Pitch Black, I have loved watching the evolution of Riddick through the three movies. You see his raw, animal side at the start and then the slow adaptation to his surroundings to meet his needs. In this installment, we see Riddick go back to that side and decide to stay that way. It's a good fit for his character and even though we still see his character grow. The only difference is he grows more towards that raw side of himself. We see his his possible last break of companionship with the introduction of the animal sidekick. The plot is a little weak at the start but it helps tie everything together across the three movies. His personal development is what feels like the focus of this movie which will lead to his search for his home in the coming follow up(s) I assume. Overall, this is the Riddick I want to see more of.

    This is a genuinely good movie, it follows on from the previous Riddick movies and doesn't leave anything to be desired. Richard B Riddick is up to his old tricks again, and if you're a fan, you won't be disappointed, definitely a must see. Vin Diesel is great as always, playing a character that never ceases to enthral me, and the rest of the cast is great too. You know a movie is good when it makes you watch the previous movies when you get home from seeing it. The music is also exceptional I found too, fitting in very well with the action scenes. I've always found Riddick to be a movie that is very rich in its universe, it pulls you in without really telling you much, and this movie does exactly the same, worth a watch even if you're not a fan.

    Ok I know a lot of people call this series cheesy. But i must sat that i love the character Riddick. I was however a little skeptical going into the third film. I knew the overall plot line but i just had to see what had become of our hero. Riddick has its up and downs and by no means is it perfect.In either the 2nd or 3rd film do i like the look of the alien planets that Riddick encounters..Nor do i like the look of some of the alien life .For a big budget film i think they could do better.Overall Riddick is filled with shoots that look good on screen an OK but predictable story, and an ending that resorts back to what worked for them in the first story.But somehow when i started watching it i couldn't stop. C+ .

    Great addition to the Riddick Saga

    Riddick continues the story of the Riddick Saga, picking up right where Chronicles of Riddick (CoR) left off. While it takes a sharp turn from where CoR left off, and returning to a much smaller story, its still a great movie. If you liked Pitch Black, you will certainly like this movie, as the two are very similar. I've read reviews that say you'll be confused if you havnt watched the first two movies, but I dont think thats true. There are certainly characters you will not know AS in depth as other people who have seen the other movies, but as a stand alone movie, I see no reason why it cant be enjoyed. If you liked the other Riddick movies, you should love this one as well. And on its own, its a good fun scifi flick.

    I am a big fan of both Pitch Black and Chronicles of Riddick. So it should come as no surprise that I was also a fan of this movie. Personally I think it is the weakest of the three films, but a fun film regardless. The Riddick character deserved a return to the screen, and while we got his return, I wish it had been the return that was planned at the end of Chronicles. I have heard that they still plan to tell those stories, and this was just a slight detour for the film series. After all, "We all have to go home somtime." If you were a fan of the previous Riddick films, you should definitely give this one a try. If you are not, I would still recommend you rent this film and give it a chance.
