Vin Diesel (XXX, The Fast and the Furious) stars in this electrifying special-effects-fueled action spectacular! After years of outrunning ruthless bounty hunters, escaped convict Riddick suddenly finds himself caught between opposing forces in a fight for the future of the human race. Now, waging incredible battles on fantastic and deadly worlds, this lone, reluctant hero will emerge as humanity's champion - and the last hope for a universe on the edge of annihilation. Powered by groundbreaking visual effects and pulse-pounding, thrill-a-minute action, The Chronicles of Riddick is "a roller coaster ride that leaves you kicking and screaming for more!"

A preening outer-space costume drama staged as a backdrop for its leading man's muscles.

The Chronicles Of Riddick is never dull, but it's far, far, far too pretentious.

Very violent, brainless explosion movie.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Chronicles of Riddick is a sci-fi action movie that isn't very good, and has intense and graphic violence, including people getting fried in intense heat and a lot of fighting. Characters are in constant peril and many are killed, there are a few four-letter words, and a character speaks of being forced into prostitution. The movie's few strengths are that there are diverse characters on both sides and the way it makes clear that the good guys stand for tolerance.
