The Chronicles of Riddick (2004)


Vin Diesel
Karl Urban
Judi Dench

Directed by David Twohy

No matter what the critics say, Chronicles of Riddick was one film I loved and enjoyed; some of the lines Riddick said still stick with me, indulge me:
You made three mistakes: first, you took the job. Second, you came light, a four man crew for me f#@king insulting but the worst mistake you made, empty gun rack.
Also when the Necromonger lord asked him to bow, he replied: I bow to no man.

If you are not in the Riddick army, I advise you take some time from you busy schedule to join in, by watching this well-crafted movie. The movie wasn’t all that perfect there were some lapse in the story telling and then there were some things that didn’t well correlate, but in the end the whole action scene and the whole idea of this night seer made the movie worth it.

Now there was a short animation movie that was done and released a day or so after this movie and it was done to bridge the gap between Pitch Blackand this movie, the name of the 30 minutes animation was The Chronicles of Riddick: Dark Fury, which tells us how Jack got left with Imam.

Now Riddick is back at New Mecca to see Imam (after five years since they parted) when he heard that Jack has gone looking for him. Riddick learnt of a new threat that is swooping in on the universe the name of the pirates are the Necromongers and there is some prophesy that a Furyan (which is race that Riddick is from) will kill the leader of this new race, which are dead but alive.

Well the movie displays some very cool fight scenes that I will tell you. There were some areas where Riddick even did the impossible, by killing a guy with a cup.

The movie also gave a brief introduction to who Riddick is and where he is from and how come there is only he left of his race.
The Chronicles of Riddick has a nice cult following that I myself I’m a full member, after the film I made sure I saw the animation and also played the game.
The Chronicles of Riddick didn’t do well in the box office, but its DVD sales were massive and so was the sale of the video game (The Chronicles of Riddick: Escape from Butcher Bay) that followed, on Xbox and on PC.

There seem to be another Riddick movie coming out this September, the budget is lower there than this movie but no matter, I can do with some more Riddick, what about you?
