★★★☆☆The return of interplanetary badass Richard B. Riddick may well have come as a surprise to anyone who saw 2004's sluggish sequel The Chronicles of Riddick and witnessed its subsequent below-par performance at the box office. Undeterred, franchise star Vin Diesel (no doubt encouraged by the sizeable returns from his endlessly money-spinning Fast & Furious franchise) has shepherded this third entry, Riddick (2013), into production, with director David Twohy back on board. Together they've concocted a handsome sci-fi actioner, but have ultimately failed in bringing about a satisfying close to the trilogy.
