R | | Action, Adventure, Sci-Fi
Left for dead on a sun-scorched planet, Riddick finds himself up against an alien race of predators. Activating an emergency beacon alerts two ships: one carrying a new breed of mercenary, the other captained by a man from Riddick's past.
Vin Diesel's original vision was to have The Chronicles of Riddick become like J.R.R Tolkien's Middle-Earth. Pitch Black (2000) was to serve like "The Hobbit," to be a stand alone film to establish the universe, and to have a trilogy of Riddick serving like Lord of the Rings.
Don't know how many times I've been crossed off the list and left for dead. Guess when it first happens the day you were born, you're gonna lose count. So this, this ain't nothing new.
Despite having spacecraft with sensors, no one ever suggest that they overfly the area and discover Riddick using those sensors. There's nothing presented in the narrative that suggest that this is not possible.
The Extended Cut runs about 8 minutes and 9 seconds longer than the theatrical version. The Extended Cut has 2 additional scenes 2 extended scenes with alternate footage 1 alternative dialogue
