I am a discriminating Sci-Fi fan, both literature and film, and I definitely do not agree with what professional critics had to say about this movie. I'm glad I didn't pay attention to the reviews and watched it for myself.
The story includes Dune-like intricacies (prophecy, conflicting character motives, foreshadow, plots within plots, weakness, multiple heroes, patience, questionable morality, rituals, inner challenges, sacrifice, etc.) but without the extended, drawn-out politics to slow the story. It is fast paced and entertaining along with the important issues and messages. The art in this film is breathtaking including the rocky fins and caves of the ice planet, the Necromonger ship; the sparkling seas, sands, and architecture of Helion Prime; and the brutal beauty of the jagged, glassy, and blistering Crematoria. The DVD version really showcases the artistic elements of this movie.
The film has a Conan flavor with the non-traditional and non-innocent hero doing the right thing instead of the easy thing, and getting involved though he doesn't have to. The superhero (and regular hero) qualities of the Riddick character are also a nice addition to the story: speed, protection of the weak, strength, ease of killing, frequent flying through the air during attacks/escapes, quick thinking, resistance to Necromonger mental intrusion, enhanced eyes for night vision (Achilles heel being light sensitivity), precision, gracefulness despite bulk, piloting skills, use of varied weaponry, respect for life, risk taking, etc. The combination of weaponry is also interesting - unique craftsmanship blades mixed with Sci-Fi technology weapons. However, the violence in this film is very tasteful, similar to the Zatoichi movies, where our hero is able to kill without a lot of blood and gore.

4.0 out of 5 stars This movie rocks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Nov. 20 2004
By abdur
If you're looking for a fresh take on the whole sci-fi space adventure epic genre, then this is the movie for you. I thoroughly enjoyed the theatrical version, but the unrated director's cut fleshes out the story even further, making it more engrossing. Some critics were fast to slam this movie, and I am glad I did not listen to them. Sometimes, I just think these critics think they are good only if they are harsh on movies such as this.I saw the movie in theatres and now own the director's cut DVD.
Twohy has introduced a remarkable universe and an intriguingly simple, yet complex character in Riddick. This is a character that you can see Vin Diesel really put his heart into. I cannot wait to see how this character evolves, as well as seeing more of this universe, not to mention the infamous Underverse, as well as more on the Furyans. I've heard that Universal will base their decision to continue with a sequel depending on the sales of the unrated director's cut. This movie, like its predecessor Pitch Black is destined to become a cult hit. I only hope the studio realizes this sooner rather than later. I would give this movie 5 stars, but I have to leave some leeway for them on the sequel (fingers crossed).

4.0 out of 5 stars ACTION ACTION ACTION March 11 2005
Format:VHS Tape
stand alone heros are what the world wants. riddick has a lot of personality that most stupid people don't get, he loves jack as a father-figure but has been used by too meny people to just let things go. as with imam, he had to get riddick to help them the only way he saw to do that was to get killed by the bad guys. if you are smart enough to reed between the lines you will see a lot of depth that some rewiewres don't see

Chronicles of Riddick [Blu-ray] [Import]

The version of The Chronicles of Riddick I purchased is not in stock at the moment and the link I provided is the exact item I received but not the Import. This is indeed a steelbook (blu-ray + DVD + Digital Copy + UltraViolet) and I was lucky enough to grab the last copy in stock in December. The price I paid was significantly lower than the import that is available at the moment. This film and Pitch Black are my first steelbooks so I can't really compare them to any other steelbooks out in the market. What I can say is that there is no artwork inside the case, just the plastic that holds the two discs, one on top of the other but not touching each other of course. This steelbook looks exactly like what you see above and as my first steelbook I love it!

This film is one of my favorite sci-fi films. I originally saw this movie on TV and immediately loved it. When I saw the director's cut I was amazed that they took out those missing scenes which in my opinion are much needed and add so much more to the movie. This film is action packed and at no point does it start to bore, the action and story just keeps building. Riddick is a complex character, a gifted killer who doesn't give a second thought to "offing" anyone who gets in his way but deep down has a big heart which makes him endearing. This film is definitely my favorite of them all. I was somewhat disappointed with "Riddick" because it was very reminiscent of "Pitch Black".

The Chronicles of Riddick is a "must watch" film and one that will make you want to watch it over and over again! Vin Diesel brings the character of Riddick alive with his tough exterior and sarcastic humor. Seeing this film originally on TV (before I had HD and then on regular DVD) I can say this bluray version is awesome to the eyes!
