Five years after The Chronicles of Riddick, Riddick, played by Vin Diesel, has become increasingly uneasy in his role as Lord Marshall of the Necromonger fleet. He previously refused to swear into the Necromonger faith and this has caused dissent among his subjects. He is left with no option but to strike a deal with Commander Vaako; the location of Furya and a ship to take him there, in exchange for Vaako becoming the next Lord Marshall. Led by Vaako’s aide, Krone, Riddick and a group of Necromongers arrive on a desolate planet.

This is the third installment in the The Chronicles of Riddick film series. The first one was titled Pitch Black and released in 2000. It was followed The Chronicles of Riddick in 2004.

This third installment opens in a desert where the anti-hero has been left for dead on a desert planet where he finds himself fighting for his life against alien predators far more vicious than any human he has ever faced.

Riddick was met with mixed to positive reviews. It currently holds a 60 per cent approval rating on the aggregate review site Rotten Tomatoes, based on 149 reviews.

Its consensus states: “It may not win the franchise many new converts, but this back-to-basics outing brings Riddick fans more of the brooding sci-fi action they’ve come to expect.”

Michael Phillips of the Chicago Tribune gave the film three out of four stars, saying, “This is not one of those Johnny-come-lately sequels preoccupied with getting a new audience up to speed on where the story was. It’s about living in the moment, in the now, and killing in the now.”
