Vin Diesel reprises his role as the antihero Riddick in the latest chapter of the groundbreaking saga. A dangerous, escaped convict wanted by every bounty hunter in the known galaxy, 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 him to activate an emergency beacon and alert mercenaries who rapidly descend to the planet in search of their bounty. With time running out and a deadly storm on the horizon that no one could survive, his hunters won’t leave the planet without Riddick’s head as their trophy. Also starring Katee Sackhoff (TV’s Battlestar Galactica), Karl Urban (Star Trek Into Darkness) and Dave Bautista (WWE).

Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics Consensus: It may not win the franchise many new converts, but this back-to-basics outing brings Riddick fans more of the brooding sci-fi action they've come to expect.
Riddick is one of those movies that, once you watch it, is destined to likely get mixed up in most people's minds with a lot of other movies that are sort of like it. However, for the time that it's onscreen, it's diverting enough to merit a watch.

What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Riddick is the third movie in the Vin Diesel sci-fi/action series that began with Pitch Black and The Chronicles of Riddick. There's strong sci-fi violence, with lots of fighting, shooting, stabbing, blood, and gore, including alien guts and a scene in which a blade goes through a man's head, and the top portion of his skull slides off. Human characters die, and a lovable alien dog is shot and killed. This installment amps up the sexual content, too; there's toplessness and full-frontal female nudity, as well as strong sexual innuendo. Language includes several uses of "f--k" and "s--t," as well as other words. Minor drinking and smoking are quickly shown in some scenes. It's been a long time since the last Riddick movie, so many teens may not be familiar with the franchise, but you don't have to have seen the previous movies to understand what's going on.
