One of the best space opera movies. It definitelly tops Star Wars prequels and sequels and also the whole Marvel crappyverse. We need some strong, badass male characters todays more than ever. Unfortunatelly movies like this are not made anymore.

The more I watch this movie, the more I like it. It´s much more sophisticated than it seems. Vin Diesel is irresistible in this film!

User review rating: 4 March 02, 2018

It would be even better if it was more cruel and dark. The best part is that one on the prison planet Crematoria. Also the chemistry between Riddick and his rival, the merc Toombs, works great. The weird worlds are creative, reminding darker and more cynical Star Wars.

Vin Diesel can´t act? :D And how exactly should one play cynical, slightly psychopatic escaped convict? Diesel was born for this role! Riddick is equaly iconic character as Terminator played by Arnold Schwarzenegger. One certainly doesn´t need to have elastic face like Jim Carrey for this kind of role. Rather the opposite.

Big step in the different course than Pitch Black was. Very brave step. I like the fantasy stuff, beautifully hostile planets and insane Crematoria physical laws :D , Twisted Necromonger religion (they are like crossbreed of Nazis and the Empire from Star Wars) and the best part - funny teasing and insulting between Riddick and Toombs. I would love to see Toombs in some sequel(s) in the future. What puts one star away is the PG-13 rating. The movie could be darker, more violent and cooler if the rating was R. Kyra-the character obviously for teenagers- is annoying mentally broken stalker who pretends to be badass like Riddick but is just pathetic. She loves to play "who is the better killer" but fails to stab Lord Marshal to the sweet spot when standing behind his back and when he´s distracted with fighting Riddick. She´s angry at Riddick and blames him for her own mistakes. If she was really badass, strong mature person, she would accept she destroyed her life and apologize him. And the most disturbing part - she signed up with mercs to find Riddick. She didn´t care he might get killed because of her. She was so obsessed with him she rather put his life in danger than to let him live his life. It bothers me ´cause teenagers romanticize her obsession and see it as love. Fortunatelly Riddick still sees her as a child who needs protection, not as potential partner (and script on Twohy´s website confirms this for sure). She´s not equal to him in any way and it would be pathetic if he saw her as a suitable partner. It wasn´t IMHO neccessary to put Kyra in the movie at all. Riddick could just escape the prison with some other people and go to kill the Lord Marshal because he killed the most of his nation and tried to kill him as a baby. The self-fullfilling prophecy is good and Necro Purifier who in fact was the one who "dreamed of it" and indirectly caused the holocaust of his nation is touching and very good part o

Lots of good action

User review rating: 0 January 05, 2005

I liked the movies alot. If i had to say a rating like from 1 to 100 I would say 100 because I liked the mavie alot by how much action there was. Riddick was always doing something in the movie. That`s all i have to say.

This was a very new look at Riddick and the special effects were great. Vin Diesel was so wicked in this movie! He really blew me away

User review rating: 0 November 30, 2004

This is a genre that is not readily appreciated by the general public. For those who DO enjoy darker sci-fi/horror films, this movie is a treat. I especially enjoyed the nihilistic attitude of Riddick. The "I`m not with these guys" statement says it all.

User review rating: 0 November 28, 2004

Maybe I was expecting too much, but this movie was a bit disappointing.

User review rating: 0 November 22, 2004

not great...a waste of good special effects

We have a new HERO!!

it waz good

User review rating: 0 November 12, 2004

This was one of the most pathetic films I`ve have ever seen. Vin Diesel (Mark Vincent) needs to stop acting, he is just the wrong person for the screen. I mean what in the hell was going on in this film? no plot, no story, bad acting and just really poor directing. They needed to go back to the drawing board with this one, maybe an acter who can actually act should have had the lead role. Vin Diesel I want my money back.

User review rating: 0 November 09, 2004

This movie ROCKED! it has to be one of Vin Diesels best. It would be great if there was a sequel. If you`ve have not seen it go. I can`t wait to see it again and again.

Awsome, I have a new found respect for Vin!!!

The details in this movie just blew me away. I never saw Pitch Black, so I wasn`t sure if I would be able to fully anjoy watching Riddick, but I thought it was amazing. Sure some of the lines were cheesy (Diesel seems to have a habit of those) and even some of the action was rather cheesy, but the storyline was great, the acting was impressive and the plot just kept getting better and better.

tis was good.

User review rating: 0 July 23, 2004

It Even Makes The First One (Pitch Black Better)

User review rating: 0 July 11, 2004

Well this movie could have been great if it was along the lines of Pitch Black. The sets where great! But it was like watching a whole lot of opulence with no substance. It has some cool bits but it is a watch it once type movie. Big impressive and hollow. Wait till video.

User review rating: 0 July 05, 2004

I loved it!!!! I hope they do another one.

User review rating: 0 July 05, 2004

If you`re looking for academy award material, skip this one. Many of the lines are so corny that even the finest of actors could not pull off a believable performance. However, for action and cinematography this movie would be a good choice. I also was pleasantly suprised by the fact that it was a full continuation of "Pitch Black" and the old characters were incorporated.

User review rating: 0 July 05, 2004

I am speechless. Words can`t describe how horrible this movie is.

User review rating: 0 July 05, 2004

To fully understand this movie, see Pitch Black and Dark Fury. Great Movie!

User review rating: 0 July 03, 2004

it was okay but vindisel is better in the fast and the furious the any other movie he has done.

User review rating: 0 June 29, 2004

User review rating: 0 June 28, 2004

The acting was HORRIBLE!!! Big waste of time and money!!

User review rating: 0 June 27, 2004

It was way better then Pitch Black. Better characters and better story line. Way better than I thought it would be.

User review rating: 0 June 25, 2004

Probably one of the worst movies of the year, prdictable and cheezy, if you don`t see things coming you`ll love it.

User review rating: 0 June 23, 2004

this was a good movie

User review rating: 0 June 22, 2004

I thought that it was amazing! I mean how they captured Vin Diesel was just breath taking. Everybody should go see this motion picture. It`s truly lovable!!!!!!!!!!!!!11

User review rating: 0 June 22, 2004

One of the best sci-fi movie I have seen. Personally, I loved it more than Star Wars.

User review rating: 0 June 20, 2004

i still dont get why people have to select 1 star 50 times just beacuse they dont like the movie that much.. by the way how could they not like it? please select the rating you want only once so we can get the real thoughts of people...

User review rating: 0 June 20, 2004

This movie is replete with bad acting (save for Judy Densch, who is superb), a script that shouldn`t have been written, and an actor in a "leading role" who try`s far too hard to emulate the likes of Sylvester Stallone in his delivery of nonsensical lines. In a futuristic setting, the use of lines like "back of the bus", relating to civil rights actions of the 50`s is totally out of place - but, that is only a small symptom of the movie: totally out of place.

User review rating: 0 June 20, 2004

for someone who didnt enjoy the first one and thought it sucked i enjoyed this one!!!

User review rating: 0 June 19, 2004

Sorry to say, but this flick was nothing more than a mish-mash of material taken from other, far better, sci-fi material on the net. Mr. VD has even admitted to searching for inspiration on the www. What a shame he didn`t take the time to make it original and thorough enough to make sense. He says we need to wait until movie 2 & 3 for that... why? Need some time to do a little more "research"?

User review rating: 0 June 19, 2004

it wuz pretty excellent! i luv vin. i think it wuz a little like pitch black. i wuzn`t kine on da ice-blue eyes he had, it turned me off!

User review rating: 0 June 19, 2004

I really liked the look of the movie. It was Very much like Conan the Barbarian in the Far future.

User review rating: 0 June 18, 2004

Soooooo bad please someone tell VIN his acting days are over stop wasting your hard earned dollars on this punk i did not i sneked in to the movie. Thank god for that

User review rating: 0 June 18, 2004

It was good I liked it coulda been better. Vin did a great acting job in it. But the camera work!!! What the heck were they doing? during one of the first fights I had no clue what I was looking at and I felt like I was going to get motion sickness. They never kept the camera still. "We don`t need fight coreography...we can move the camera!"
