Left for dead on a sun-scorched planet, Riddick finds himself up against an alien race of predators. Activating an emergency beacon alerts two ships: one carrying a new breed of mercenary, the other captained by a man from Riddick's past.
The wanted criminal Richard Bruno Riddick (Vin Diesel) arrives on a planet called Helion Prime and finds himself up against an invading empire called the Necromongers, an army that plans to convert or kill all humans in the universe.
Extreme athlete turned government operative Xander Cage (Vin Diesel) comes out of self-imposed exile, thought to be long dead, and is set on a collision course with deadly alpha warrior Xiang (Donnie Yen) and his team in a race to recover a sinister and seemingly unstoppable weapon known as Pandora's Box. Recruiting an all-new group of thrill-seeking cohorts, Xander finds himself enmeshed in a deadly conspiracy that points to collusion at the highest levels of world governments.Written by
When Becky Clearidge drops the machine gun during the warehouse action scene, it falls to the ground and starts firing in full auto. In order for this to happen, the trigger would need to be pressed or the gun fire control would had to break, which is very unlike to happen on such a small drop.
In the early days of machine guns, they could fire once if dropped on the back of the receiver, but virtually all industrial quality machine guns made after WWII have a drop safety mechanism, this is certainly true for the MP-5K depicted in the movie. See more »
You know how I came up with the idea for the Triple-X program? Skateboards and swimming pools.

Mindless VFX, dull acting and no screenplay and story
Been cursing myself to have watched such mindless video game movie.
Deepika Padukone is completely misfit and she looks awkward for most of the screen time. Vin Diesel should stick to Fast and Furious franchise, 2002 XXX was much better. Rest of the star cast is assembled to just please the producers "Shanghai Movies".
There is no story, no screenplay, improper acting, it seems like director has wasted his most of the time in VFX labs than on actual story and screenplay.
Disgraceful start to 2017, if you want to watch mindless graphical action, better play video game. Disappointed to the core, save your time, money and if you still want to see then be ready to curse yourself...backed by big production house, critics and fake reviews will start floating soon appreciating the movie, beware.
