Rid­dick

The Gold Coast Bulletin - Play Magazine - - MOVIES -

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. Robina, Pa­cific Fair, Aus­tralia Fair, Coolan­gatta, Har­bour Town, Nerang.
