Ah, Riddick, getting left for dead again, on some remote planet somewhere outside our solar system. Fighting foes, finding food, lighting a rescue beacon that calls on a ton of bounty hunters, that get involved in one big manhunt, that shows who's got heart and who hasn't, who's got spine, who's next in line, and who climbs the skies at the end of the day.
It's all the same thing, really, same thing as previous movies, but this time without any of the awesome civilized sights and sceneries. This time it's all wilderness. Plenty of action, a good plot, but much more waiting and much less moving around than the previous ones. I like how down to earth the movie is, but at the same time it's not as pompous as it used to be, not so much to see, it doesn't climb to the same heights of grandeur and awesomeness and this time there aren't that many humane critters involved in the fight.
It's not so much about gunfights and blades flying through the air as it is just a struggle for survival. I guess that's the way it's meant to be, though. Good movie.
rated 3/5: not bad
