When Kyra removes the cup that Riddick used to kill a guard on Crematoria, the cup has a badly broken and jagged rim and its handle is attached about an inch below the rim. In the next shot where the cup is completely visible, the cup's rim is less broken and jagged and its handle is attached at least two inches below the rim. The cup she places on the rock appears the same as it did when she first picked it up. See more »

The closing credits are displayed over extreme close-ups of elaborate Necromonger sculpture. Eventually the sculpture is revealed to be a statue of Riddick sitting in the Lord Marshall's throne. See more »
WOW! What a surprise! A very well thought-out plot, excellent character development, immersive sets, and special effects that melt into the fabric of the movie so well, they all but disappear. I was not expecting to be absolutely glued to the screen when I first sat down to watch this movie, but I was. It pulls you in like a roller coaster ride, and doesn't let you off, until the ride is over. A performance from Vin Disel, that is arguably his best ever, not to mention he was also a producer of this movie. My compliments to your ability to recognize a good story, and to bring it to such life.
This one is on my library list. My only regret was that I did not see it in a theatre. I hesitate to call this art, but it has been a long time since a movie has entertained me so much.
