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.

As expected from a Blu-Ray this movie looks great. Browing the Blu-Ray menus produces some sound that gets really annoying really fast.
Which by the way is more or less the version that was shown in theatres at first. So anybody else having a problem with the necromonger's stuff missing and the shorter version of the survival opening must have this one. If only it was not a Bluray!
But don't be afraid. This is actually one of the very few Bluray disc that does not destroy the movie. Riddick was filmed for imax theatres at first, so even the definition of a blueray cannot betray it's special effects on a home television screen.
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.
