The title says it all in that the script also called for the lead Vin Diesel, the anti-hero, to speak single syllable words, make that sentences, for majority of this sci-fiction action thriller, the third installment in The Chronicles of Riddick series.
First off we find Riddick, first name Richard, near death only to pull and pin himself together while fighting off aliens that look like something from Men in Black or the Muppets.
Up until that time we are also treated to a world similar to what we saw in John Carter, a brightly lit sun scorched desert planet with odd creatures and forgiving environment.
Great CGI work.
Riddick befriends what looks like a cross between a hyena and a dingo dog, with what I thought was terrible CGI though, to take on some bounty hunters who have come to claim his head, literally.
Jordi Molla gave us nothing special or unique with his character Santana, the lead scumbag, but Katee Sackhoff and Dave Bautista were perfect for their roles as Dahl and Diaz respectively. Both tough as nails physically and in presence.
The one point of the movie that brought you out of your chairs was Riddick’s quite original parting with Santana. You will either laugh or scare your head off.
Another piece of great CGI was the motorcycle hovercrafts.
This is perhaps one of my shortest movie reviews ever…so what does that say about the movie.
As a true Riddick fan it will not disappoint. If you want movie magic…there was no rabbit in the hat.
On a scale of one to three on the Bump in the Dark scale we give this a two.
See you on the silver screen.
