Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: A preening outer-space costume drama staged as a backdrop for its leading man's muscles. – Benjamin Strong, Village Voice, Jun 16, 2004

Rotten: An inane film rendered sometimes laughable by an atmosphere of dead-serious reverence. – Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: Despite a few goofily entertaining moments that are so over the top they are instant camp, the movie suggests that the hero's name derives from 'ridiculous.' – Jami Bernard, New York Daily News, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: Writer-director David Twohy has a much bigger budget than he did for Pitch Black, but he makes the all-too-common mistake of believing money can substitute for imagination. – Megan Lehmann, New York Post, Jun 24, 2010

Awsome movie!!!

This movie is great!! Not only is it a sequel to one of the greatest sci-fi movies of all time ( Pitch Black), but this movie alone has its own original story line. I just wish they had made a sequel to this movie....

Riddick Rules

Sweet action sequences in this one. Instead of monsters, Vin Diesel is fighting a group of people who are just as deadly.

Surprisingly Well Done

While I am no means a Vin Diesel fan, David Twohy has created an imaginative universe with a wide variety of characters, each with their own background - the scope is as wide as any sci-fi epic, although much darker than popular Hollywood films; and much closer to what we expect from modern science fiction epics. Vin Diesel is perfect for this character, so his acting skills had no need to stretch here, but the intriguing storyline, effects and worldbuilding make this the beginning of a classic Sci Fi epic. Heres to hoping there will be future Riddick adventures.
