My pal Ro gave me the third Riddick Film for my birthday this week.
In some ways its themes were a combination of the first two films. PITCH
BLACK was a horror movie with SF underpinnings while CHRONICLES OF
RIDDICK was mostly science fiction action. The third movie, simply
titled RIDDICK, manages to carry over the SF elements from CHRONICLES but
has its own share of creepy monsters like in PITCH BLACK. Vin Diesel
still growls his way through the tough guy lines and Richard B. Riddick is just as much of a killing machine as ever. The supporting
cast is good and the action never flags. They did do one thing I really
didn't like, but this is a spoiler free review so I'll keep that to
myself. All and all a good third entry in the series. (Fourth if you
count a short animated film. It's actually pretty good.) The ending
definitely left things open for yet another sequel. Time will tell.
