A man, a dog, two ships full of mercs and a planet of beasties (spoiler notice)
Right off the bat, let me confess that I like this film series. I have a soft spot for Richard B. Riddick. Not everyone has, clearly evinced by the slew of negative reports surrounding this latest entry. Riddick is a movie that sets out to do a very specific thing. It takes its damn sweet time to do it, and along the way a few iffy story lines involving women swish uncomfortably past, but it succeeds at exactly that goal. Whether you'll be as disappointed as many others depends on your stomach for Vin Diesel reprising his role as intergalactic badass.
