This movie is a lot better than you’d think. Sure, it’s cheesy as all hell, but in a delicious way. For me, it really reminded me of old school 80s action movies, stuff like Aliens, with all those classic character archetypes – the tough chick, the bastard, the spiritual one, etc. – and in a way it felt refreshing to watch, compared to the type of action movies we get these days (more grounded). I also love how it takes its time, like the long opening that just has Riddick dealing with the wildlife on the planet he’s stranded on. As a whole, it kinda feels like something that you’d have read in Heavy Metal magazine, and I’m definitely OK with that.
