Vin Diesel Week presses on with a movie I probably would have liked better if I had watched the rest of the series first.
Also, this is a review of the Unrated version.
This was nothing more than an “almost everyone gets killed off one by one” movie. It wasn’t bad, but I was hoping there’d be more to it.
Riddick himself has potential**, and I’m pretty sure it’s impossible to dislike a Rhada Mitchell character, but there wasn’t much to the rest of the cast.
**I have a feeling I’ll like him more in the sequels.
The flashing lights in the beginning, the constantly changing color scheme, the weird skewed shots…The visuals felt kind of amateurish, actually.
Yeah, none of that going on here.
By the time you read this, I will have seen both The Chronicles of Riddick and Dark Fury, so my original scoring of 1 in this section has been bumped up to a 2, because I like them all as a whole.
