      I thought this third entry was solid had that PITCH BLACK feel, good action and i liked the story it told Riddick was a true badass again.

      • aliensharkboy

        You edited your comment and removed the finishing words of “take that sharkboy!” I rather like it when people take stabs at me. 😛 Why change it?

          I dont want to be a smartass and get personal we like what we like no probs, enjoy.Riddick was better for me than Pac though i stand behind that.

          • aliensharkboy

            Nothing’s ever personal… Except frank_dracman calling me a “bozo” for liking The Rage: Carrie 2. :'( It was totally uncalled for.

    • frank_dracman

      The first half of the movie was great, the second started to get a little silly. The first ten minutes is not a proper representation of the entire movie. Overall I’d recommend it to anyone who liked Pitch Black but not the second.

        It’s funny how divided Riddick leaves most people with their opinions. All because of its three very different acts. I think I’m the only person I know who enjoyed the film as a whole. Was fun to see a simple gory video-game styled sci-fi à la Starship Troopers again.

        • frank_dracman

          I guess it’s because I was really digging the whole lone survivor story. A man against the element, all alone except for a dog. You don’t see that kind of stuff in the theaters anymore and it was a great surprise. the rest of the movie? Been there, seen that. Still good, but kind of a downer compared to the first half.

          I’ll be buying it and can’t wait to see it again, and I’d rate it 3 1/2, maybe 4. One of the best action movies I’ve seen this year.
