(2013) (Vin Diesel, Jordi Molla) (R)
- 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.
- 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.
