When their ship crash-lands on a remote planet, the marooned passengers soon learn that escaped convict Riddick isn't the only thing they have to fear. Deadly creatures lurk in the shadows, waiting to attack in the dark, and the planet is rapidly plunging into the utter blackness of a total eclipse. With the body count rising, the doomed survivors are forced to turn to Riddick with his eerie eyes to guide them through the darkness to safety. With time running out, there's only one rule: Stay in the light.

With no aspirations to be a franchise, this is a very effective low budget sci-fi thriller. Twohy makes very clever use of his budget, through cinematography that helps to sell the otherworldly environment and a concept that allows him to hide the primitive CGI used for the creature effects. After a great opening crash landing, Twohy gradually builds up the tension to the inevitable eclipse and whilst most of the cast are essentially there to be picked off one by one, the three core central characters are interesting and developed well and unpredictable with a very effective moment of redemption and closure at the end. It is easy to see why more films were made as Riddick is the standout character, but both Radha Mitchell and Cole Hauser make an impact too. There are some great tense moments in the darkness and clever use of limited Iighting.

I'm having a Riddick Marathon Day. When this first of the franchise came out (2000) the billing of it as a horror film made me a little tentative (I'm a whimp when it comes to horror movies) but I'm so glad I took a chance. The writing is creative, the acting should make Australia (and California) proud, the monsters are convincing, the look at humanity is insightful, the anti-hero extraordinary and the tension is well played. This is one of my favourite cult films (with two of my favourite actors - Vin Diesel and Claudia Black). I give it a 10 (the total package) out of 10. And for those worried about the horror - today it would only classify as a thriller. [Thrilling SciFi Action]

This movie started out decent. Some people crash-landed on a strange planet and have to discover both the mysteries of the planet and the mysteries of their partners. This leads to some exciting moments, either by unexpected characters or unexpected alien behaviour. Unfortunately, halfway through the movie, everything gets explained. Now you know who the bad guys are, and what's wrong with the alien planet. Because of this, the tension is gone and the movie ends in a very slow pace, where you can already predict most of what's going to happen. Too bad.. Can't really recommend this, because it's nothing special. The build-up of the story is nice, Riddick is an interesting character (although you don't learn too much about him), the acting is okay, unfortunately it turns into a very generic movie halfway. It did make me curious about the sequel though, so it must have done something right.

It looks cheap and quickly put together, but it works in service of its zany universe. I enjoyed the unlikeliest bunch of characters coming together, no one truly good or bad, but just there to survive and sling out some great lines.

This movie is sort of cheap. The cinematography is not that good, also. The visual effects are bad. I really expected way more since it's a Vin Diesel movie but everything turned up to be a waste of time for me.
The storyline of the movie is really great and I was so excited to watch it that I More

One of those few movies that most people don't care for, but I personally think is **criminally** underrated.

_Final rating:★★★★½ - Ridiculously strong appeal. I can’t stop thinking about it._

Shipwrecked on a desert planet, the survivors of a doomed commercial spacecraft explore the sharp sand dunes and bleached alien skeletons of a foreign landscape, seeking water and, with luck, the means to escape or send an intergalactic SOS. They aren't many in number, and even that sum soon beg More
