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 Riddick tried to broaden the scope of Riddick's universe too much. "RiddicK" brings everything back to the beginning, but ends up being too basic.
The plot is fairly weak and predictable. The CGI is only decent (not IMAX worthy). There is one scene depicting the hover bikes that looks unbelievably fake.
I was mostly entertained throughout the movie, but I felt like I wanted more. The creatures weren't shown enough, nor were they smart/dangerous enough. It's hard to go back to a Pitch Black scale of movie after seeing the universe at large in the Chronicles of Riddick. Vin Diesel is enjoyable to watch, the action entertains, but it could have been so much more.
There's nothing during or after the credits
If you like my reviews, add me as a fan. I'll add you back!

Don't expect Othello but expect an action Sci-Fi movie that's fun and made for the fans more than the almighty dollar. Vin Diesel put his house up for collateral just to get this movie made for the fans of the first two and while you might think, "What's a million dollar home compared to someone who makes $15m per movie?" It shows that even if he's rich to most peoples standards, he didn't have Scrooge McDuck money sitting in a vault somewhere. This movie was made to be fun so if you can't let yourself be immersed in an Alien/Starship Trooper/They Live mosh-up movie, go see something else.

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 I just loved this movie!
Vin as Riddick is always something to love.

its pitch black meets Lassie. Good entertainment if you like sci fi/ action. Of course its predictable...name a movie that came out in the last 20 years that wasn't.. The obligatory foul language and sexual references. Its good escapism. If you want cerebral, stay home and read the dictionary while playing sudoku.

Totally loved it. Liked all the other actors. Wonderful graphics (CG). Totally left me wanting more. I believe their is going to be another movie since he has some unfinished business yet to complete. Can't wait to see that!!
