The infamous Riddick has been left for dead on a sun-scorched planet that appears to be lifeless. Soon, however, he finds himself fighting for survival against alien predators more lethal than any human he's encountered. The only way off is for Riddick to activate an emergency beacon and alert mercenaries who rapidly descend to the planet in search of their bounty. The first ship to arrive carries a new breed of merc, more lethal and violent, while the second is captained by a man whose pursuit of Riddick is more personal. With time running out and a storm on the horizon that no one could survive, his hunters won't leave the planet without Riddick's head as their trophy.

Blu-ray is excellent with enough extras if you're into that. Usual "Making of..." stuff, the "World of Riddick", "The Twohy Touch" and more.
Bottom line; if you're only a so-so Riddick fan don't bother because you will feel like you've seen it all before. However, if you liked Pitch Black and want more of that, then this is for you.
The special effects were decent. The dialouge meets our tough guy expectations. Good mix of drama and action, with a touch of levity. The plot is very simple, Riddick vs. bounty hunters vs. alien creatures. Good popcorn film.
Parental Guide: F-bomb, nudity (Katee Sackhoff + full frontal) sex talk.
Now much older and in poorer shape he struggles to survive and in this sequence he comes closer to the Pitch Dark in some aspects of his personality. Finally got all three movies in my DVD collection and would recommend this show to anyone who wants to see something above the league in comparison to any other shows out there. The way to go Vin Diesel :)
Consider, for instance, that this is a character survived Crematoria, and then took on - and beat - the leader of the Necromongers, and now we're looking at Riddick vs some merc teams? It doesn't add up. Sadly, the backstory is that Universal decided to shelve the Riddick character after "The Chronicles of Riddick" didn't do well, so the the original creatives got the rights back and produced Riddick, which means the follow-up stories and movies will be vastly scaled back.
On the plus side Riddick develops an interesting master / pet relationship with a local animal, one of the merc teams had a redeeming reason for being there, there's some unexpected plot twists, and Katie Sackhoff does a good job reprising her hard-scrabble characters along the lines of BattleStar Galactica and Longmire.
Overall I give this three stars as a "meh" movie - it's worthwhile if you can get it for around $10 and have an afternoon to spare or something else to do while it's playing.
