I went to see Riddick last week at the Regal Cinemas in Lone Tree, CO with Conroy. The Fandango website at Riddick describes the movie as follows…
”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…”
The Review: Riddick is continuation of a Vin Diesel character that started out with the film Pitch Black, which I thought was a pretty cool science fiction action film that came out back in the year 2000. Now 13 years later, Vin Diesel is still making movies with this crazy futuristic character.
This movie is a continuation to the last film, The Chronicles of Riddick that has him being the leader of a violent group of aliens that are going around destroying planets and now they have double crossed him and left him on a very hostile alien planet. Once there he discovers that he’s wanted for his crimes and has to set off a rescue beacon that brings a group of mercenaries to kill him before he can get off the planet. The problem is that the monsters are coming to get all of them before they can leave, which makes for a pretty wild movie.
Conroy and I both liked it and thought it was Worth The Trip, but it’s really a Rental for most people at best. The character is pretty cool, in the same way that Conan the Barbarian is entertaining, but it’s very violent and not very realistic. The acting isn’t great, but it’s just an entertaining and fun action film, if you like the science fiction and action genre.
