Movie Review: The Chronicles of Riddick (2004)


My Rating: 3Stars

This evening I went to see the movie “The Chronicles of Riddick” at AMC Cinema, Festival Walk, Kowloon Tong.

Vin Diesel did his usual level of acting, not great but also not bad. I did not like the director having the actors describe some of the scenes and actions, I think he could have let the audience discover or let the story line review itself a bit more. Some part of the story sounded like it is trying to set the audience up for a sequel, but did not do it so obvious that they have to commit to it. I guess even the movie makers themselves are not certain if this movie will be a success. Given the amount of audiences at the theatre I was in, it is doing okay, but then this is only the third day of its release in Hong Kong.

This movie reminds me of the movie “Dune” of yesteryear.
