Riddick (Trailer #1) Review
Well here it is the first full trailer to the final film in the Riddick trilogy. I loved the first film, it had a unique feel to it and was so simple it’s hard not enjoy the ride. Then the follow up Chronicles of Riddick which was so far in the opposite direction even I had trouble keeping track of the Sci-Fi/Fantasy elements at play. Now watching this trailer I obviously feel it taking more influence from the first film, stranded on a desert planet, bounty hunters, the nasty monsters come out at night, R RATING! Love it all and I think it will be at the very least fun. Also got some interesting casting going on which I will talk about later, but on that note where the hell Karl Urban? Honestly put him in the trailer! The action looks good, the monsters look scary and Riddick’s eyes are glowing so let’s get this review started! Comment and like at the end please.
My Score: B+
Release date: 6th September 2013
Betrayed by his own kind and left for dead on a desolate planet, Riddick fights for survival against alien predators and becomes more powerful and dangerous than ever before. Soon bounty hunters from throughout the galaxy descend on Riddick only to find themselves pawns in his greater scheme for revenge. With his enemies right where he wants them, Riddick unleashes a vicious attack of vengeance before returning to his home planet of Furya to save it from destruction.
Top 10 Scenes
10. Riddick’s Back!
What a brilliant opening to a trailer. As the Vulture thing descends to land and feed on a fresh corpse Riddick grabs its neck. Love it! It’s in keeping with the character and the planet definitely resembles the first film.
9. Where’d The Dog Come From?
Just a little random, but a dog appears with him out of nowhere. Granted it’s an alien dog thing but I thought it was very strange since it doesn’t appear again. Is it just a random animal that walks next to him in that scene (that would be neat) or just not explained in the trailer?
8. Dragged Into Darkness
Any excuse at the minute to say into darkness mwahahaha. Anyway the scene is great as the shots just go from a group of hunters to being the hunted.
7. Hey Look It’s Drax And Starbuck
Yeah…let’s cut him loose. Love it, hell is descending upon them and they have the common sense to release Riddick. The actors we have here, on the left will be Drax in the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy and on the right we have Starbuck from the Battlestar Galactica.
6. Fighting For The High Ground
Why he is in that position is beyond me but it looks very cool and in the scene you get a close up of Riddick full on throwing a spear into the head of a big beasty, like in the next image.
5. Slice Him Down The Middle
Gut that freaky monster! Make it two monsters.
4. Look At That Beasty
Look at the detail on that badass beasty, looking pretty good so far with a small budget. You don’t need big budgets! I keep saying people.
3. Our New Ripley?
That picture looks so kick ass! It really reminds me of Ripley in that Aliens scene taking on the alien. I hope she does really well because she looks right and some more strong female characters never hurts in the Sci-Fi genre.
2. I am Not Taking A Bath With Them
What a brilliant shot to show both the threat of moment/ monsters in general and the sheer number of them. It very similar to the number of nasty’s in first film.
1. Fight Back To Back
This is easily the best shot, back to back fighting with the enemy surrounding you, going to predict it to my favourite scene of the film. On a more focused note we get a good look at the creatures and well they can only be described as a hybrid between a Velociraptor and a scorpion, what a terrifying combo.
Well that’s my views. Now what do you think about this newest trailer?
