Storyline

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 Universal Pictures

Trivia

When Riddick steps into the identifier for the emergency beacon, the stats on him read: "Richard B. Riddick. Escaped convict. Murderer." This is how he introduced himself to the character of Paris in Pitch Black (2000). See more »

Goofs

Dahl shoots 1500 meters with a tracking bullet and misses the dog. Then she is able to shoot over 1500 meters and hit a running dog. The chances of her hitting a running dog at over 1500 meters is slim to none. It would have been more believed if she had waited for the dog to stop again rather than shooting at a running dog that far away. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Riddick: 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.

Alternate Versions

In the director's cut, there is one alternate ending. In that ending, Riddick finally reaches Helion Prime and demands Vaako's whereabouts to his aide Krone. Krone cryptically answers that Vaako has kept his word and achieved 'transcendence', which meant that he has converted into a deity. The film ends with Riddick looking out of a window to the galaxy.

Riddick is Back
19 August 2018 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

"Riddick" is an action sci-fi movie with the return of Riddick. The story is entertaining and simple with top-notch special effects. Riddick is left alone in an arid planet with predators. His only way out is activating an emergency beacon that alerts two groups of mercenaries that land on the planet with their spaceships to chase Riddick. There are many funny moments and quotes and for fans it is worthwhile watching. My vote is six.

Title (Brazil): "Riddick 3"
