Chronicles of Riddick

OK, I call bullshit.

I can put off all the stylish, artsy, bad-sociology, weird-science stuff, and the Riddick Is Jesus Mithras In the Dark, but ... the prison planet.
When dawn comes along, the intense heat causes the very air itself to explode in flames.


Uh, no. Where does the oxygen come from? Where does the breathable air come from at all?

My suspenders of disbelief just went SPROING.

Yeah, the surrogate Sting guy just went out walking in the dawn, cricklycrackly, and Vin is barely sweating 40 feet away.

Must be some amaaaazing atmospherics there.


And the face sticking out of everything? How pharonic.

And it's just occurred to me, most of the badguy army wears Legacy Chain helmets.

Yep. As long as you're in shade, you're okay. Sigh.

The killing scene with the tea cup, though? So very much worth it.

The rest of the movie, well, meh. Pitch Black was so much better.

The sardine can key really ties the scene together.

See, this is why you need a CRANE for your suspension of disbelief.

Suspenders just won't do it with some of the stuff Hollywood puts out...

The lack of breathable air never occurred to me.

Oops.

The vapor trails coming off the spacecraft in deep space also bothered me.

Star Wars, anyone?

Star Wars had, sad to say, LESS character development than Riddick.

And noisy spacecraft. I always pretended that the noise came from their engines giving off EM noise.
