Movie synopsis
The sequel to cult sci-fi hit PITCH BLACK sees Vin Diesel enthusiastically returning to his role as Richard B. Riddick. Director-writer David Twohy is on board again, building on themes established in the first movie, and expanding his vision with some incredible special effects work. Twohy opens the movie with Riddick on the run from a group of bounty hunters. He escapes them with ease, then seeks information from an old friend named Inam (Keith David). Inam informs Riddick that he has been singled out by an Air Elemental, Aereon (Judi Dench), as the one man who can stop the evil Necromongers from taking over the Universe. Suddenly, the Necromongers arrive on the planet, causing mayhem and destruction. They capture Riddick. He soon escapes, only to fall into the hands of the bounty hunters he so deftly eluded at the start of the movie. They take Riddick to a rogue prison planet where he is met by scorching heat, an underground penitentiary, and his female companion from PITCH BLACK, Jack (who is now called Kyra, and played by a different actress, Alexa Davalos). They plan their escape from the planet, and vow to bring down the Necromongers. Things don't go according to plan however, leading to a suspense-filled climax to the film, and an eyebrow-raising ending that suggests Twohy may have plans for further installments in the story.

the second pitch

Bigger isn't always better, but for anyone who enjoyed Pitch Black, a nominal sequel like The Chronicles of Riddick should prove adequately entertaining. Writer-director David Twohy returns with expansive sets, detailed costumes, an army of CGI effects artists, and the star he helped launch--Vin Diesel--bearing his franchise burden quite nicely as he reprises his title role. The Furian renegade Riddick has another bounty on his head, but when he escapes from his mercenary captors, he's plunged into an epic-scale war waged by the Necromongers. A fascist master race led by Lord Marshal (Colm Feore), they're determined to conquer all enemies in their quest for the Underverse, the appeal of which is largely unexplained (since Twohy is presumably reserving details for subsequent "chronicles"). With tissue-thin plotting, scant character development, and skimpy roles that waste the talents of Thandie Newton (as a Necromonger conspirator) and Judi Dench (as a wispy "Elemental" priestess), Twohy's back in the B-movie territory he started in (with The Arrival), brought to vivid life on a vast digital landscape with the conceptual allure of a lavish graphic novel. But does Riddick have leadership skills on his resumé? To get an answer to that question, sci-fi fans will welcome another sequel

Great Sequel to Pitch Black

Vin Diesel stars in this sequel to Pitch Black.

In the film Riddick is being chased by bounty hunters. After defeating the bounty hunters he takes their craft and sets out to find out who put the bounty on his head. During the search he discovers that he is the one chosen to defeat the Necromongers who are trying to take over the galaxy by converting everyone to their 'faith'.

This movie is full of fast paced action and Diesel continues to make this character one to watch.

If you have not seen Pitch Black be sure you get that one as well as this movie makes a lot more sense if you have seen Pitch Black first.

Epic sequel to Pitch Black.

"Sometimes you must fight evil with a different kind of evil..."

Vin Diesel doing what he does best in an epic, over-the-top interplanetary action flick.
Anti-hero Riddick returns to civilization to find out who put a bounty on him, to learn he's been summoned to help in fighting the Necromongers, a planet-conquering cult that kills everyone who does not join.
Epic sci-fi-fantasy, excellent special effects, and just enough tongue-in-cheek to keep it fropm getting too serious.

Alot better than the theatre version

This should have been the version in the theatres. I recondmend this version of movie. It goes in to more detail and introduces more aspects.The visuls were great. I liked it better than Stars Wars.

The scope was phenomenal. Director David Twohy had a vision that was so grand and yet he managed to pull it off. The scenery was otherworldly but you felt these places existed. Planet Crematoria (the prison planet Riddick travels to where sunrise brings temperatures to 700 degrees on the surface) was breathtakingly beautiful and horrible. Imam's home planet was so lovely, you would love to explore it.
Each character was meticulously crafted, from Riddick all the way down to the convict in charge at the prison. There was history in each one, such that you wanted to see a movie about their lives, and what brought them to this point and their interaction with Riddick. The additional footage in the unrated version completes the movie. It makes a good movie. Great.

Futuristic Action Adventure

I had seen a small part of the movie on television and wanted a copy for myself. If you are a Vin Diesel fan, this is one to have. It is a very good science fiction movie about good and evil, and the hero has to make a decision which side to take. He goes through the first half of the movie having you thinking that he is a cold blooded killer and cares only about himself. Favorite line in movie is "you keep what you kill." Many special effects and fight scenes to keep your interest peaked for most of the movie. Recommend for older teenagers and adults because of violence.
