Another fantastic movie played by Vin Diesel, plenty of sci-fi references and horror themes to keep any movie buff happy!
I found it very slow to get into the story, but once it got going it was quite a good movie.
Interesting movie - took me a while to get into - it wasn't fantastic but not terrible either - an in the "middle of the road" type of film that is good 'weekend' waster movie
Great idea but poorly executed. Chronicles of Riddick was a much better quality film, so I sort of felt like this was the poor cousin when watching it!
I loved this movie. It's different and highly entertaining.
I enjoyed this movie, was worth watching
Loved it, Vin Diesel is great as someone you never quite know whether to trust
Some will love it, just not my thing
I first saw this movied when it came on TV years ago, I was channel surfing and happened on it by accident, I missed the very beginning so didn't know what it was about to start with, but then I saw Ms Black from Farscape (sorry can't remember her first name) and realised it was a sci-fi. Being a sci-fi fan I watched it and was impressed. This was my first encounter with Vin Diesel. Incidently is he really double jointed or was it special effects? When I joined Quickflix I just had to see Pitch Black again and see the whole story. I hadn't missed much just a few minutes at the beginning. Wow I'm impressed again, for the true sci-fi space adventure fans this is a must see movie. Can't wait to see The Chronicles of Riddick
I really enjoyed this movie the first time I saw it when it was first released. Finding out it was made in Australia was a bonus too. The Aussie actors in it have done us proud. Oh and of course being a woman, who could pass up on Vin, lol. Great movie.!!!
good movie if you no tha hole storie great perv for diesel
A cult film it may be but I found it all a bit dull.
Good thriller/Sc Fi movie - Continues the Riddick character or rather introduces him and Vin Diesel is good. It is a good movie with interesting story really worth watching
If you'r not afraid of the dark before you see this you will be after you see it!
The prequel to Chronicles of Riddick is watchable. Although Vin Diesel's acting presence here is commanding due to the character, there's not really a lot of acting. Plot is simple: a whole bunch of people running around trying not to get killed/eaten and the lone stranger comes to the rescue. Sometimes it is better to act alone.
Excellent movie, great acting.
Not as good as the sequel. Too much language used (not necessary)The story was quite good and good suspense.
We've seen it before and will get it out again. Whole family thinks it's a great watch.
A cult classic with Aussie stars. Well written and well acted. Vin Diesel well he's someone for the women to admire and the men to aspire too. Watching this more than once allows one to see things you may have missed in the first viewing Dark intense and captivating.
One of the better thrillers in recent years. And it was filmed in Aus too! look out for the accents...
Great outing for Vin Diesel, infinitely better than the fast and the furious. While it doesn't quite reach the electric tension, or feature the ground breaking special effects, of Alien or Event Horizon it is still a worthwhile addition to the sci-fi thriller/horror genre and should be a great intro to the Chronicles of Riddick - well worth a watch!
