Chicago Tribune

It's fun! Extremely violent, cleverly managed fun, full of eviscerating aliens.

Riddick isn't perfect but it's a good high-octane sci-fi tinged action/thriller.

An improbable but very enjoyable sequel that recaptures much of the stripped-down intensity of Diesel and director David Twohy’s franchise...

The Playlist

By Drew Taylor
Riddick, as a character, is best when he's alone, fighting against insurmountable odds, with narratives that serve his singular nastiness.

Riddick is a fractured skeleton of a script, with each distinct installment scratching its own itch.

Empire

By Chris Hewitt
Overlong and often overcooked, this is nevertheless a relative return to form for Diesel as the fiendish Furyan.

Entertainment Weekly

By Keith Staskiewicz
At a time when the budgets for sci-fi films are, like the universe itself, expanding at an astronomical rate, Riddick decides to go small.

The only reason to root for Riddick is that his name is on the ticket stub. But he's so dull and the hunters so weird that we're literally...

Move along, there's nothing to see and no one to root for in this murky franchise reboot.

Regression

Riddick is mildly entertaining, but didn't live up to my expectations. Pitch Black built a cult following on the back of a pretty awesome "hero" despite being a so-so movie. The Chronicles of...

Mmmmm

By LesPetitesLys
I loved the Rated R Riddick. I just love the way he talks. I wish we'd seen more of him locked in the heat of battle with the aliens. I felt like the end resolved itself too quickly. However, overall...

Riddick

Terrible. I absolutely love the first three movies including the anime #2. Great series that just got a very limp finale. Vin Diesel was good but the story was terrible. There was essentially one...

Action and Humor

By SRHOPE
Similar to Pitch Black in a lot of ways but has more humor and better lines. Classic 'Riddick' with a few twists. Some nudity and lots of gore....

RIDDICK

By willisanto7854
The visuals were great , the storyline could have been better and RIDDICK should have been more Dangerous Welcome back RIDDICK!!! But do not fade into that goodnight!...

Wait for the dvd.

By stevetsmith
SGI????? Come on. Barely qualifies as what is normal now. Acting? Oh well, it's Vin. Don't expect to much. Monsters???? More like a boy and his dog story. Wasn't impressed. The story? It's RIddick....

For the hardcore fans

By Shannonmajerle
If you're a hardcore fan of the Riddick-verse, then by all means go see this movie. I'll admit to being left feeling somewhat lackluster after the film, but as a movie goer, I enjoyed it over all....

Riddick

By robertedavis
A pretty good Sci-Fi, but undortunately, Hollywood has an obligatory formula that always includes Gratuitous Female Violence against Men. We are treated to the usual fare of several scenes with a...
