Probably the best alien monster movie since the "Alien" trilogy. A good ensemble where one don't want anyone to die with the possible exception of one or two. One of the better spaceship crash landings up to that time too and Vin Diesel made his breakthrough as an antihero with glowing eyes. Sadly a little predictable with who will meet their maker, but fun stuff.
13 years on this first entry in the 'Riddick' series still stands up as a superior sci-fi chiller feature. Plotting was nothing new, but clever creature design, a knowing script and game performances especially from Diesel and Mitchell made this one something special. Mind you, 'Alien' this is not but it is an entertaining and often thrilling ride.
