Year 3 Day 39

movie: Riddick
starring: Vin Diesel, Bokeem Woodbine,
genre: Sci-fi, Drama
year: 2013
format: Shaw Video On Demand

plot: After deciding it's time to try to find his way home, Riddick is stranded on a desert planet. He manages to survive against all odds, until a bounty hunters come looking for him. Soon, chaos begins as the hunters and Riddick find themselves fighting off thousands of mutated scorpion like creatures that stand between them and getting off the planet.

Part three in the film series ( Pitch Black  and Chronicles of Riddick)

This takes you back to the idea of the first film, with man against beast and man against environment as the main plots.

I have to admit, I liked the idea of him saving a hyena-wolf creature in this and raising it, gave the character an edge we hadn't seen since his semi adopting the kid in the first one.

This is pretty much a sci-fi-western. A lot of shoot'em up scenes, on a deserted planet. Bit predictable at times, but it's still enjoyable.
