Riddick Blindsided: Companion piece only
Blindsided is a 5 minute animated short that takes place shortly after the events of The Chronicles of Riddick (2004).
Riddick is now the Lord Marshall of the Necromongers, a position he never asked for and it's not a very safe place to be. Mulling over his next move he is in constant danger of assassination attempts and rebellion.
Essentially Blindsided is one single fight scene and little else. Animated in that comic book style which is mostly static it looks better than these things normally do. I personally hate this style of animation and had this been longer than 6 minutes I might have lost interest fast.
Vin Diesel and Karl Urban reprise their roles and deliver the best they can but ultimately this cannot be considered anything but a companion piece. It accomplishes nothing, it adds little to the story, and is a real blink and you'll miss it situation.
One for fans and fans only.
Looks better than these things normally do
Things I Learnt From This Short:
Vin Diesel NEEDS to do radio!
