In Writer/Director David Twohy’s Riddick, the marooned and wounded character played by Vin Diesel has to fight off more monsters in the first half hour than most superheroes have to defeat in their entire film franchise. And, the monsters are extremely ugly to boot.
It’s only then, that he has to begin to fight off the bounty hunters, who come to the dead planet for his head…literally.ans of Diesel and this character will enjoy the film, which was shot well by Cinematographer David Eggby and has a deliciously murky set designed by Joseph C. Nemec III. However, it’s definitely not for the squeamish.
I give Riddick a 4 out of 5 for the fan base. Others, beware!
