Vin Diesel's "Riddick" is set to hit stores on DVD and Blu-ray on January 14th. To give fans a preview, Universal Studios Home Entertainment just released the first ten minutes from the movie online. Check out the video below.
Plot: Betrayed by his own kind and left for dead on a desolate planet, Riddick (Diesel) fights for survival against alien predators and becomes more powerful and dangerous than ever before. Soon bounty hunters from throughout the galaxy descend on Riddick only to find themselves pawns in his greater scheme for revenge.
"Riddick" cost $38 million to make and grossed almost $100 million at the worldwide box office. The film has a 59% fresh rating on RottenTomatoes.
I agree. It was boring and predictable. And just a glimpse of Katee Sackhoff boobs? bullsh*t!

lol. Saw this WEEKS ago in its entirety for free. Glad I didn't pay for it as it tries very hard to retread Pitch Black even though 65% of this movie is Diesel glowering from one restraint to the next. No tension, slack pace, poor character development.
The best part is probably the beginning during which Ridd*ck reenacts some rendition of the trials and tribulations of Hercules. After that the film dribbles away to nothing, which just means Towhy knows you need a solid script beginning after which once you've hooked the audience you can go piss up a rope.
The plot sounds like a step back from the ending of part 2, IMO. It's mindless fun, but going back to "the drawing board" seems more like they considered part 2 a mistake...
Part 1 is still the best and part 2 wasn't one of my favorites but in CHRONICLES OF RIDd*ck, I appreciated how they upped the ante...solid villain and how they made the ongoing environment/ inhabitants deadly.
Shame they didn't know where to go from there or how difficult it was to get funding...looks more like V. Diesel was able to get it made with the popularity he had from the F&F fame he built up. Nothing more...
Why watch a third? It's already been covered in part 1...better. Part 3 looks like more of the reheated manipulating/killing-bounty-hunters-to-get-off-a-deadly-planet...meh.
