A disappointment, and yet there is a fair amount of fun to be had with Riddick. The screenplay doesn't live up to its own delusions of ability, and a few things are crazy, but somewhat enjoyable nonetheless.
It's time for the best of the year... and the worst. Get our rundown on the movie year that was 2013.
It's entertaining to be sure, but it doesn't work as a film in the way it needs to. There isn't anything to hang your hat on, and somehow the movie gives the impression that it doesn't care.
A couple of movies that weren't great at the end of the day, but neither as bad as all the bashing they're taking... except Getaway... if you listen to Shane.
A great movie in virtually every way, except that (for me) it's apparently written by big fans of Scooby-Doo.
