Good action, great visuals, good story depth
I only saw the directors cut, but apparently that makes all the
difference, and so i think the 6.1 rating may not be representative. I
never felt like i was lost or something could be better explained.
I was surprised at the depth of the story line, almost inspiring me to
go read the books (except I don't have the time :) Sure, some of the
one-liners were corny, but Vin Diesels usually similar style actually
fits the role of Riddick quite well.
One caveat, I went in with low expectations which may have boosted my
overall impression. And while there are a few references to Pitch
Black, I wouldn't call it required viewing to see this movie. They
carried over a few relationships but at least gave a bit of background.
