VIN Diesel’s character of Riddick, an intergalactic outlaw with nightvisiony eyes and steroidy muscles, stole the show in the very good Pitch Black ( 2000). Then stole our dough in the very bad Chronicles of Riddick ( 2004). In terms of entertainment value, the new movie sits smack- bang between the previous two. The wonky excesses of Chronicles have been ripped up and the last- bad- man- on- a- last- badplanet stylings of Pitch Black have been stitched back together. In this passable affair, Riddick is stuck on a far- fl ung world with just 11 bounty hunters who want him dead for company. Will he survive to fi ght another day ( and star in another sequel)? No answers please. Co- stars Matt Nable, Katie Sackhoff.
