Pitch Black is one of the greats in modern sci-fi horror films and tragically it spawned two really bad sequels one of which was RIDDICK. The film spends the first 15minutes explaining away the events of Chronicles of Riddick which to me is as good as saying ‘sorry that movie sucked here is why we are ignoring all of it in this one’
RIDDICK is basically Pitch Black on a bigger scale, with more mercenaries and a big gimmick. Go ahead and ask me what the gimmick was! Ok glad you asked! The gimmick is Katee Sackhoff showing off her boobies for ‘artistic’ merits I am sure. I am a huge fan of Katee’s and wish she had just kept it on!
Sorry to be Debbie Downer but I loved Pitch Black and I am disappointed that as the budgets increase and Vin Diesel transitions to a superstar these films have just gotten progressively more mainstream and lackluster.
