The infamous Riddick has been left for dead on a sun-scorched planet that appears to be lifeless. Soon, however, he finds himself fighting for survival against alien predators more lethal than any human he's encountered. The only way off is for Riddick to activate an emergency beacon and alert mercenaries who rapidly descend to the planet in search of their bounty. The first ship to arrive carries a new breed of merc, more lethal and violent, while the second is captained by a man whose pursuit of Riddick is more personal. With time running out and a storm on the horizon that no one could survive, his hunters won't leave the planet without Riddick's head as their trophy. Written by
Vin Diesel's original vision was to have the "Chronicles of Riddick" become like J.R.R Tolkien's Middle-Earth. "Pitch Black" was to serve like "The Hobbit", to be a stand alone film to establish the universe, and to have a trilogy of the "Chronicles of Riddick" serving like "The Lord of the Rings". See more »
When Riddick is trying to get past the creature to the other side of the planet, the water in front of the stairs is deep enough that two of the creatures (one very large) can be fully submerged in it. However, when he runs back with the dog, it is shallow enough that he can slide across it without trouble. See more »
Don't know how many times I've been crossed off the list and left for dead. Guess when it first happens the day you were born, you're gonna lose count. So this, this ain't nothing new.

Riddick is a movie about Riddick and not really much more.This movie explores a deeper side we have not seen but not all is given away.Riddick knows to keep something back and even under duress. I loved the back story and how he ends up where he is and how he uses people and objects to get where he wants to be. The characters in this move are quite wooden with no need for any real acting and who were really only there for body count. Riddick plans his moves carefully like chess and plays people against each other to his advantage. Riddick has a mixture of traits that make him a real action hero and really hope that there is more in future. I would say he is the ultimate action hero and we do need more in future.
