Plot Summary
Left for dead on a sun-scorched planet, fugitive Riddick (Vin Diesel) fights for survival against alien predators more lethal than any human he has yet encountered. His only hope for escape is to activate an emergency beacon, but that brings with it a different problem: mercenaries. The first ship carries an especially violent and lethal group; the second is led by a man from Riddick's past. With time running out, Riddick realizes that neither group will leave without his head as trophy.

    Fan of Pitch Black and Vin Diesel\'s sexiness. Riddick was surprisingly good. Very entertaining from beginning to end. I felt that there were a few confusing story points, but otherwise, it was well crafted and not over animated. Supporting actors were a great compliment to Riddick. Worth seeing.

    First time seeing a Riddick theme thought it was a very good sifi, and traditional super character. Entertaining.
