A VERY GOOD REVIEW BY BEN KENDRICK
[ click to enlarge and read]
Richard B. Riddick (played by Vin Diesel), more commonly known simply as Riddick, is the antihero of four films in the Riddick series, namely:
- Pitch Black
- The Chronicles of Riddick
- The Chronicles of Riddick: Dark Fury (the animated movie)
as well as the two video games:
- The Chronicles of Riddick: Escape from Butcher Bay and
- The Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena.
Within the canon of the series, he is shown to be a highly skilled predator and he is extremely mobile and stealthy, especially for someone of his size, has a vast knowledge of how to kill almost any humanoid in a variety of ways, is an extreme survivalist, and is notoriously hard to contain. He is also, self-admittedly, a dangerous convict and murderer – yet despite this, he is sometimes shown to perform moral or even atypically heroic actions, usually against his own better judgment and survivalist nature.
Riddick is an upcoming 2013 American science fiction action film, the third installment in the The Chronicles of Riddick film series. Produced by and starring Vin Diesel as the title character, Riddick is written and directed by David Twohy, who previously wrote and directed the first two installments, Pitch Black (2000) and The Chronicles of Riddick (2004).
The film is scheduled for a September 6, 2013 release.
Betrayed by the Necromongers and left for dead on a desolate planet, Riddick fights for survival against alien predators and becomes more powerful and dangerous than ever before. Soon bounty hunters from throughout the galaxy descend on Riddick only to find themselves pawns in his greater scheme for revenge. With his enemies right where he wants them, Riddick unleashes a vicious attack of vengeance before returning to his home planet of Furya to save it from destruction.
