"RIDDICK is extremely violent, cleverly managed fun -- full of eviscerating aliens, Vin Diesel making those little swimmie-goggles look sharp and Katee Sackhoff of BATTLESTAR GALACTICA swaggering around..."

"[A] very enjoyable sequel that recaptures much of the stripped-down intensity of Vin Diesel and director David Twohy's franchise starter PITCH BLACK."
Vin Diesel's Riddick character gets a new lease on life in this third film from writer/director David N. Twohy. Katee Sackhoff and Bokeem Woodbine head up a group of assassins out to kill Riddick, who lures them to a desolate planet when confronted with a hostile alien species.
