The Chronicles of Riddick




Just like Dark Fury, I had never seen The Chronicles of Riddick until now and it's clear that writer/director David Twohy had something that could be turned into a real Tent Pole Franchise. The Chronicles of Riddick is bigger, louder and badder and makes Pitch Black seem almost like a little art-house flick by comparison. Riddick is grandeur in size with a real sense of moving the story forward, into a place where you absolutely know was never intended by Twohy. Just where Dark Fury ended, with Toombs (Nick Chinlund) now in pursuit of Riddick (Vin Diesel) albeit 5 years later, it ties everything together to lay the groundwork of what's to come. Even Keith David returns for a brief spell as Imam.

I love Alexa Davalos and have been a fan of pretty much everything that she has done and I can't wait to see what she does in Lost Angels. She was great in Riddick as Jack/Kyra. But there is a part of me that wished that Rhiana Griffith had returned to play Jack. It would have added a lot of depth to the scenes between her and Vin, with a sense of their history on screen. Really not sure why she wasn't brought back or what the story is behind her no-show. Anyway, the new cast is heavy on name/face recognition with the likes of Thandie Newton, Colm Feore, Karl Urban and Judi Dench adding to the festivities. Definitely a nice addition to the Sci-Fi genre. A Buy for sure.

Overall. this is a nice package of films and worth a Buy for any Sci-Fi fan.
