Directed by: David Twohy

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.
“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…” (Los Angeles Times)
“[A] very enjoyable sequel that recaptures much of the stripped-down intensity of Vin Diesel and director David Twohy’s franchise starter PITCH BLACK.” (Variety)
“The series director and writer, David Twohy, has smartly gone back to genre basics with this installment, which serves as an effective reboot.” (New York Times)
“Twohy has the pulpy visual chops to match his storytelling.” — Grade: B+ (A.V. Club)
