QUICK TAKE:
Sci-Fi: Trapped on a desolate planet filled with carnivorous monsters, a long-time escaped convict must contend with the arrival of various humans who want him captured for different reasons.
PLOT:
It's been years since convicted murderer Richard B. Riddick (VIN DIESEL) escaped mercenaries who had captured him only to crash-land on a hostile planet that yielded only a few survivors. Having escaped that only to eventually be named the leader of an alien race known as the Necromongers, Riddick has now been betrayed by them and left alone on a desolate, sun-scorched planet.

After surviving having a busted leg and repeated attacks by both hyena and monstrous scorpion type monsters, Riddick gets himself to a long abandoned outpost and signals its homing beacon. That results in the arrival of Santana (JORDI MOLLA) and his band of mercenaries that includes his right-hand enforcer, Diaz (DAVE BAUTISTA), and rookie Luna (NOLAN GERARD FUNK), among others, who want Riddick's head for the handsome bounty it will fetch them.

They're not the only ones interested in capturing Riddick, however, as Boss Johns (MATT NABLE) arrives with his crew that includes Dahl (KATEE SACKHOFF) and Moss (BOKEEM WOODBINE), although they want the long-escaped con for reasons beyond the price on his head. Yet, neither team is prepared for just how resourceful and wily Riddick is, or the danger both he and their new environs pose to them.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
If they're fans of either of the first two movies in this series, they probably will.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: R
For strong violence, language and some sexual content/nudity.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
