Riddick, the third film in the Chronicles of Riddick series takes us to a lonesome desert planet where our shiny-eyed star Vin Diesel fights for his life against alien forces of nature and two team of bounty hunters looking for his head.
The underground appeal of the past films coupled with Vin Diesel’s recent box office success spawned this chapter, costarring briefly Karl Urban (Star Trek, Dredd) as his nemesis and reason for exile as well as Katee Sackhoff (Battlestar Galactica) channelling Starbuck in her bounty hunter role.
There is action, bloody horror and creepy space beasts in the end of summer Riddick directed by franchise creator David Twohy.
Riddick starts off with our hero playing the part of Taylor in Planet of the Apes (via the sands ofMan of Steel’s Krypton!), on a barren world, leg injured by a fall. He hides from a pack of bloodthirsty Dingo space dogs with no weapons yet, finding shelter in a cave.
