      Just finished watching Riddick ( 2013). David Twohy throws another Riddick(sounds like a vegetable) at us with the hope of regaining but actually losing Riddick fans. The creator of the Riddick Chronicles gives us another film mostly filmed on a set with obvious and unfortunately out of today's date effects. Plenty of green screen containig scenes become obvious especially when the Vin Diesel is walking sideways and not straight into the field. For instance when he is on a lookout for predators which are bound to hunt him down. Overall the film is not actually bad. The cast is decent and the actors make brilliant work of the given set, and reduced budget in comparison with other big titles for 2013 and the recent 2014 films. Scenes full of straight humour and a few one liners make the film's digressing de picture and shallow effects easy to swallow. You can relate to the characters and even learn a few lessons about determination. Moreover one of the film's lessons is not to be out of shape treating being normal and sidetrack as a sin. I recommend watching it mostly for the fans of The Riddick stories and of course Vin Diesel who does a tremendous job in terms of acting and using his powerful voice to create some impresser monologues. One that got my attention is his monologue while he is in chains threatening everybody's lives and showing off a cocky attitude whilst 'Not Givin'a'f**k) pardon the use of the words 'whilst'and 'attitude'. For those and similar scenes alone the movie deserves 6-7 out of 10.
