It was reported earlier this week that Riddick star Vin Diesel put his own house up to get the Pitch Black sequel off the ground, but was it worth the risk? Evan Dickson reports in with his thoughts on the David Twohy-helmed sequel that he says “gets back to the basics.”
“Riddick isn’t something I’d recommend to the average man on the street,” explains Dickson in his review. “In simpler terms, if you liked Pitch Black you’ll probably like this.”
“Riddick might be a strange combination of Pitch Black, Chronicles and Jeremiah Johnson – but it’s also pure Vin Diesel. A force of nature and optimism that emerged from humble beginnings to become one of our most interesting action stars, it would be unwise to underestimate him. The same goes for this film.”
The film, starring Diesel, Karl Urban, Nolan Funk, Jordi Molla, Matt Nable, Katee Sackhoff, Bokeem Woodbine and Dave Bautista, is in theaters everywhere tomorrow.
