The original Riddick adventure, 2000’s ‘Pitch Black’, was a serviceable ‘Alien’ clone, as Vin Diesel’s muscular convict held off an army of darkness-loving beasties with only the galaxy’s most gravelly voice as his weapon. ‘The Chronicles of Riddick’ (2004) was a misfire, placing our hero at the centre of a tedious ‘Dune’-like intergalactic conflict. Now, unheralded, comes ‘Riddick’, a return to the Vin-kills-slimy-things template of the first movie. In parts it’s almost a remake, the only difference being that these nasties come out in the rain, rather than the dark. There’s a whole lot of previously-on-‘Riddick’ backstory to get through – a gang of bald chaps with names like Lord Siberius Vaako tried to bump him off, apparently – before we reach the meat of the story. When we do, it’s flavourless: the aliens are unscary and easily despatched, Vin’s too silent to be interesting, and the other characters – a gang of bounty hunters on Riddick’s trail – are either dull or offensive: Katee Sackhoff’s lesbian character appears to exist purely so the male characters can threaten to rape her. Nice.

I enjoyed it. It went back to what made Pitch Black a grear sci-fi flick. What can I say, critics know nothing about what is good and what is not.

Pete K, if you seriously rated this film 5 stars then you not finding work in this country must be one of the few things this country is doing right.

I'll at least give Tom credit for not BEING that other critic named Alonso Duralde. At least Tom basically briefly said ”i didnt like this film” as opposed to Alonso's 10 paragraph hate rant on Vin and Twohy. Alonso Duralde's review of this film is despicable. You guys can delete my previous one, cause after reading that mess on thewrap site, it makes this one more tolerable. Cheers from the states.

Tom Huddleston gets paid to write such brilliant reviews as this? And I cant find work anywhere in this country? What a sad state of affairs.
