The Chronicles of Riddick (2004)

The wanted criminal Riddick arrives on a planet called Helion Prime, and finds himself up against an invading empire called the Necromongers, an army that plans to convert or kill all humans in the universe.

OK sci-fi saga adding some sword & sorcery fantasy (and more violence) to the Pitch Black universe; nicely made, but otherwise quite mindless entertainment.

Maltin*1/2: "...a densely plotted, overproduced action/sci-fi extravaganza...Laden with a self-serious storyline and enormous computer-generated settings and effects, it sinks under its own weight."
