Sex & Nudity

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

In the R version there is some fairly graphic french kissing.

Unrated Version: A woman talks about going down on a man.

Unrated Version: A man is told to search a female prisoner for weapons. When he gets to it, he grabs her butt.

A female mercenary seductively smells Riddick and sits on his lap while he is asleep and held captive It turns out he is only pretending to be asleep. Nothing happens

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

Violence & Gore

Not very graphic but pretty intense. In the R version on the last fight sequence on Cremitoria, the sound is not muted.

Unrated Version: Riddick jumps through the air with a knife in each hand, and slices an enemies head off. The head rolls on the ground briefly. Very little blood.

A woman is thrown across the room and is impaled on a spiked pillar. She later dies

A man is stabbed through the top of his head with a knife. Although little gore is shown, the person who stabbed him them breaks the handle off, leaving the blade in the victim's head.

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.

A man hits a woman (his wife) during an argument. They kiss shortly after.

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.


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

Unrated Version: 1 use of the F word, 6 uses of the S word or its derivatives, 1 use of p*ssy, 1 use of a**.

Brief drinking

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).
