Riddick (15)

Action, Sci-Fi, Thriller

Left for dead on a sun-scorched planet, Riddick finds himself up against an alien race of predators. Activating an emergency beacon alerts two ships: one carrying a new breed of mercenary, the other captained by a man from Riddick's past.

The critical consensus

The results are by turns boring and bizarre, although Diesel still has some presence.

**(*)(*)(*)Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian, 05/09/2013

Director David Twohy keeps the action fairly tight, even if some of it has the weightless look of a computer game.

**(*)(*)(*)The Independent, 06/09/2013

For all its obvious flaws and stupidity, Riddick consistently entertains.

***(*)(*)Rob Carnevale, The List, 03/09/2013

The effects are good and fans should enjoy some healthy gore.

***(*)(*)Henry Fitzherbert, Daily Express, 05/09/2013

Shame, then, that the script promptly shoots itself in the equal-ops foot with some repellently ill-judged rapey "humour", promptly undermining any residual goodwill.

**(*)(*)(*)Mark Kermode, The Observer, 08/09/2013

After the bloated disappointed of The Chronicles Of Riddick, it’s great to report that Riddick recaptures the stripped-back edge of Pitch Black. Opting for an R-rated, back-to-basics survivalist romp, it puts the fury back into the Furyan.
