Story


The latest chapter of the groundbreaking saga that began with 2000's hit sci-fi film "Pitch Black" and 2004's "The Chronicles of Riddick" reunites writer/director David Twohy ("A Perfect Getaway," "The Fugitive") and star Vin Diesel (the "Fast and Furious" franchise, "XXX"). Diesel reprises his role as the antihero Riddick, a dangerous, escaped convict wanted by every bounty hunter in the known galaxy.

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.

Riddick also sees the return of Karl Urban ("Star Trek," "The Bourne Supremacy") as Vaako and introduces to the series Jordi Molla ("Bad Boys II," "Colombiana") as Santana, the arrogant captain of the mercenary ship; Matt Nable ("Killer Elite") as Boss Johns, a man looking for answers; Katee Sackhoff (TV's "Battlestar Galactica") as the Nordic mercenary Dahl; and Bokeem Woodbine ("Total Recall") as bounty hunter Moss. Rounding out the cast are Dave Bautista ("The Scorpion King 3: Battle for Redemption"), Conrad Pla ("Immortals"), Raoul Trujillo ("Apocalypto"), Nolan Funk (TV's "Aliens in America") and two-time Grammy Award-nominated singer Keri Hilson.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..an improbable but very enjoyable sequel that recaptures much of the stripped-down intensity of Diesel and director David Twohy..”
by Scott Foundas [Variety]
“..faithful to the template if not the spirit of previous installments, this flabby second sequel barely manages to advance Riddick's considerable personal mythology..”
by Justin Lowe [Hollywood Reporter]
“.."Riddick" feels like a segmented anthology film - the actor cranks his gusto for running, jumping, slashing, and smirking to 11..”
by Matt Patches [Film.com]
