Here's what the critics are saying:

The story feels like quicksand. “Riddick,” which couldn’t even qualify for proper summer movie placement, moves like Martian molasses and can’t present an action scene to save its life. — Joe Neumaier, New York Daily News

“Riddick” is many things: a surprisingly solid sci-fi B-movie, a showcase for the limited but real talents of star Vin Diesel, a relatively bright note after a summer of disappointing genre films. But more than anything, it’s a lesson in the virtues of going small. — Peter Suderman, The Washington Times

Not only is this third installment in the series tedious, grisly and inane, its star, Vin Diesel, plays a ridiculous amalgam in the title role. He's a killing machine with a heart of gold, a malevolent mush-ball who plays fetch with alien critters. — Claudia Puig, USA Today

This is not one of those Johnny-come-lately sequels preoccupied with getting a new audience up to speed on where the story was. It's about living in the moment, in the now, and killing in the now. — Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune
