I got into a press screening of Riddick today. Here are some quick thoughts on it:
'Riddick' is quite possibly the best of the Riddick movies, although that's damning with faint praise, as I'm not exactly a big fan of the previous two. It starts out strongly with an extended dialogue-free sequence of Riddick fighting for his life in an alien desert, but then devolves into an overlong remake of 'Pitch Black'. Overall, though, it's a reasonably effective, unapologetic b-movie with solid performances from Vin Diesel and Katee Sackhoff and a couple of neat action scenes and creature effects.
