The third chapter of the sci-fi thriller saga following Pitch Black (2000) and The Chronicles of Riddick (2004). Writer/ director David Twohy returns, as does star Vin Diesel as the badass Riddick – escaped convict wanted by every bounty hunter in the galaxy. Left for dead on a seemingly lifeless, sunscorched planet, Riddick finds himself fighting for survival against lethal alien predators. Also stars Karl Urban. They say: Box-office in the US was just OK; critics mostly gave it a pass as a stripped-down and sufficiently mean midbudget action pic. (Report, Page 11.) Wesay: Diesel’s a good sport and the film does everything it can to service the Riddick franchise’s fanbase. Running time 119 minutes.
