Watch Riddick () online - Amazon Instant Video

I have to say I liked RIDDICK over-all. It's a bit goofy how they play up Vin Diesel's character (I preferred when he talked less) but it plays as an overly ambitious but competent B-movie. The film tries to hearken back to success of the 1st, PITCH BLACK, but doesn't quite get there because of the over reliance on studio sets, CG, and greenscreen shots (the 1st had great locations & actually took a risk with bleach-bypassing their film for a very moody tonality to the picture). The very end was just plain stupid (or some kind of inside joke) as this B-movie was trying to go for a high-brow sci-fi cliff hanger (part of being overly ambitious). #facebook
