Some Cleavage (during an action sequence, several weapons are shown, then a brief shot of a woman's cleavage, then more weapons)

A woman kisses a shrouded figure on an alter who acts as a communication device between her and her husband.


Not very graphic but pretty intense.

A man uses a tea cup to stab someone in the chest. Very little blood, but the victim falls down dead.

Several men are completely destroyed by extreme temperatures on a fiery planet. The flames erode them down to their skeletons. It is very brief.

Riddick stands atop a manhole cover, while the person below lifts it, searching for him. Riddick then stabs the man in the face with an anchor-like chain. The man later falls hunders of feet down a shaft to his (probable) death. Cheesy, not graphic.


1 use of the F word in the PG-13 version and 2 times in the R version. Standard PG-13 otherwise.


Brief drinking

6/10 Intense.

There are puma like lizard dogs on cremitoria. These may scare younger viewers. Riddick later tames one and pets it, but they are still very frightening and kill a few minor characters (offscreen).

Total Explicit Rating: 18/50

12+ for violence and frightening images.

About as graphic as The Bourne Identity or Mission Impossible.

Rated PG-13 for intense sequences of violent action and some language (edited for re-rating)
