Despite the good perforamnce by Vin Diesel, "The Chronicles of Riddick" is too long and too depressing for a science fiction movie. there are good special effects, but the depressing tone that the film has set is too much for me.

This movie is great. I thought it was going to suck, seeing all kinds of bad reviews for it, preveous to seeing it.

But it was very entertaining. Like a mix between MI-2 and Dune.
Some parts weren't great, but you can't expect every part of a movie to be top notch. Can you?

The final battle, seemed too hokey for my tastes; but the people I was with liked the end more than me. One scence was a great hack and slash, with big bad Diesel doing what he does best. Then, out of nowhere, the sound slowly fades off, and fast techno starts to play in the backround. When this happens in action movies, I get mad.

With those being my only criticisms, this movie is a See Now.

I enjoy Sci-Fi, I liked Pitch Black, I like the Riddick character, and I liked this film. Not great, but not a stinker.

Long and dull. Nothing like Pitch Black. Even the popcorn was bad at this one.

Very good movie. David Twohy has crafted a very good sci-fi movie. ONly two things kept it from a see now, first, was that they backed off a bit on the bad guy aspect of Riddick, and second was that it felt a little rushed. But other then that, a damn good movie, worth seeing.

Great movie. The fighting scenes were excellent, even though it was hard to see what was happening and who was winning most of the time. The story line was another story though. It was very hard to follow who was good and who was bad with all the names/races that were involved.

I STRONGLY recommend seeing the prequal to this movie (Pitch Black) to find out what is happening during the movie. Vin Diesal was spectacular in this movie. I give it a 7.5/10.
