It is Vin Diesel starring in the Riddick 3 Rule the Dark. The saga continues this fall in theaters September 2013; after being abandoned and left for dead. Riddick sends an emergency signal beacon, but the wrong ships receive his signal. One is a race of mercenary alien predators and their only mission is to capture and kill Riddick, the other ship is captained by an old foe.
When Riddick realizes who has come for him, he changes the plot from hunted to becoming the hunter. The bounty hunters are newbies and the captain is the only one with the smarts to predict Riddick's next move and his capabilities as to see in total darkness. A good part if the movie takes place during the night, and the unexpected seems to happen often, this is not a predictable movie, though the plot lets the viewer knows what the outcome may be: you must get ready for a twist at the end. The well-acted characters become very familiar to us; the new action scenes are very violent and will keep you wondering if he will come out of that one in one piece. Yet, the furyan lives…
One by one Riddick must deal with the hunters which may not stand a chance against him. He is pursued with hovering cycles, on foot, and from the ships themselves. This action adventure has some amazing action sequences and the special effects are much better than in the previous series. The planet is infested with blood thirsty creatures, not only has he managed to survive the hordes of alien creatures that lived on the surface and underground; but now he must deal with the bounty hunters that have discovered he is still alive in the planet.
The cinematic special effects are flawless and spectacular; this movie filmed in 2012 will also be shown in IMAX theaters. The cast of characters is perfect and the character Riddick is true to his previous rolls. It has excellent and continuous action sequences with realistic CGI effects. There is only one thing left to ask; are you afraid of the dark?
Labor Day has come and gone, summer, at least from a commercial perspective, is officially over, and the weekend ahead is set to be one of the quietest of the year at the box office. The quiet is well deserved, coming as it does after one of the most tumultuous summer seasons in recent Hollywood memory. The only new wide release this week is the sci-fi action flick "Riddick," a sequel to "Pitch Black" (2000) and "The Chronicles of Riddick" (2004). Like those films, "Riddick" stars Vin Diesel as an escaped convict who must avoid galactic bounty hunters.
