Pitch Black was premium-grade science-fiction/horror. It gathered up all the creative detritus left behind by the Twilight Zone, The Outer Limits, Star Trek, and E.C. Comics like Weird Science, retro-fitted them for use in a CGI-equipped modern-day monster movie, and hit the ignition. It didn't explode. Or it did, but in a good way.

A space-ship full of cosmic pilgrims crash-lands on a thoroughly alien world. They find themselves in a scorched wasteland, a desert graveyard holding the bones of hill-sized behemoths. It seems bad, and the presence of a convict named Riddick makes things seem even worse. When they learn that subterranean tunnels house myriads upon myriads of nocturnal exo-monstrosities, like terrifying hybrids of the Hammerhead shark, Komodo dragon, Bengal tiger, and the alien from `Alien', they're relieved that these terrifying things can't handle sunlight... starlight... whatever. When they learn that the hourglass is about to be flipped, and the planet's eccentric orbit and axial rotation will result in something too `lastingly dark' to call `night', well... it's a bit scary. Riddick ends up being the pitch-black anti-hero his badge-wearing escort isn't, and Radha Mitchell finds classic 1961-style redemption for her selfish past.

Director David Twohy earned his stellar reputation among SF and horror fans with `Pitch Black', and deservedly so. Then he destroyed his stellar reputation among SF and horror fans with `Chronicles of Riddick', and deservedly so.

Watching "Pitch Black" for the first time was like trying a new ice cream flavor; you're not sure until the second or third bite what you really think. The original film got zero publicity and a limited release but served to introduce Vin Diesel to an audience in his first true starring role.
A passenger spacecraft ends up crashing on a desolate planet. The only survivor from the crew co-pilot Carylon Fry (Radha Mitchell) takes command and directs her surviving passengers (including Claudia Black from "Farscape") to find food and water. While there appears to be no indigeous life forms, a human survey team did briefly occupy the planet. Curiously, there's no indication as to where they went or why they left much of their material behind.
Also on the flight is a what appears to be an interstellar police officer (Cole Hauser) escorting a convicted criminal by the name of Riddick (Diesel). Riddick has the unique ability to see better in the dark than the light. While he's no hero, he does make suggestions to the survivors to help their chances for survival. Unfortunately, they're soon to discover that some life form forced the survey team to consider leaving once night arrives.
A suspenseful "B" movie premise that works primarily due to Twohy's sharp, taunt direction and crisp dialogue, "Pitch Black" immediately graps your attention with its inventive visuals and intense performances from the superb Mitchell, Deisel, Hauser and Black. Actally, the entire cast gives strong performances throughout the film and Twohy throws in plenty of unexpected twists and turns to keep the audience on the edge of its seat.
This "new" unrated director's edition was available previously on DVD a couple of years ago.

Sci/fi horror stories. You really don't expect such charatcer development in these types of movies, but this one does an excellent job, from start to finish. This is definitely not a B movie, not by a long shot.
You find out for example that the bad guy is not always the bad guy. In the crash sequence after all the dust settles and Johns finds an empty cryo sleep tube and his gun missing, it's found on the floor under a dangling Riddick. Now if Riddick was such a bloodthirsty bad guy, he would have taken the gun and shot Johns and been done with it. This is the second interesting development in the film, and gives you a nice window into the character of Riddick.
The first interesting development is the moral dilemna during the landing/crash of the ship, in which Fry tries to eject all the passengers.
The third interesting development is the assuming of Riddick's guilt in the death of Zeke, for which no one has apologized yet.
I've rarely seen such a depth in chracters in the scifi genre. All of the characters go through some deep changes under the pressure of the struggle to survive. Check out the expressions on the faces of the actors, and the dialogue, excellent job, without overacting or forcing.
The special effects are good, and they don't overwhelm the story. The plot is good, and the suspense stays with you up until the very end, building and ebbing throughout the film.
I wish they'd have had a bigger budget for this one, but if they had they'd have probably overloaded on the special effects.
Overall, I would give this an excellent rating as a movie buff.

Set in the distant future, a spaceship carrying some 40 people, mostly ones wanting to settle on other planets from their own, hits a meteor shower and crash lands on a distant planet killing all but about a dozen of them. The survivors, led by the second-in-command Carolyn Fry, find themselves on a hot and humid landscape with constant sunlight from three orbiting suns. The marooned passengers soon learn that escaped convict Riddick isn't the only thing they have to fear. Every 22 years, the planet's three suns go into a total eclips and cause a 'lasting darkness' where the darkness brings out the planet's real inhabitants; Deadly creatures that lurk in the shadows, waiting to attack in the dark. It is the 22nd year and the planet is rapidly plunging into the utter blackness of a total eclips. With the body count rising, the doomed survivors are forced to turn to Riddick with his special eyes to guid them through the darkness to safety. With time running out, there's only one rule: Stay in the light.
