When their ship crash-lands on a remote planet, the marooned passengers soon learn that escaped convict Riddick isn't the only thing they have to fear. Deadly creatures lurk in the shadows, waiting to attack in the dark, and the planet is rapidly plunging into the utter blackness of a total eclipse. With the body count rising, the doomed survivors are forced to turn to Riddick with his eerie eyes to guide them through the darkness to safety. With time running out, there's only one rule: Stay in the light.

  • Shawn Levy

    Between the tart dialogue, the compelling lead performances, the vivid violence and the stunning cinematography, it's complete and satisfying all on its own.

  • Lisa Schwarzbaum

    So jaunty, so limber, and so visually self-assured that art peeks through where crap has traditionally made its home.

  • Paula Nechak

    A total guilty pleasure.

    Seattle Post-Intelligencer Full Review
  • Kevin Maynard

    Visually, Pitch Black is sleek and stylish in a post-apocalyptic way, and a scantily clad Radha Mitchell does a nice, more femme variation of Sigourney Weaver's Ripley.

  • Sara Wildberger

    Just may be the most entertainingly derivative movie of the millennium so far.

  • Jonathan Foreman

    By far the best thing about Pitch Black is the cool-looking lighting and photography.

  • Desmond Ryan

    The "Alien" recipe with a little imagination.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Justine Elias

    (Diesel's) Riddick, a silver-eyed, musclebound escaped killer, is the most sequel-worthy sci-fi creation since the Terminator.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Roger Ebert

    Clever, done with skill, yet lacking in the cerebral imagination of the best science fiction.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Susan Wloszczyna

    Nothing really fun, scary or exceptionally gross occurs.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Jay Carr

    The B-movie is still very much with us.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Maitland McDonagh

    This handsomely photographed, briskly directed sci-fi fright picture is enjoyable enough on its own limited terms.

    TV Guide Full Review
  • Emanuel Levy

    Mildly scary but not particularly engaging on any other level.

    Variety Full Review
  • Lisa Alspector

    Stylishly realized, but its striking cinematography, nontraditional editing, and consistently reflexive use of genre conceits add up as methodically as a math problem.

  • Marc Savlov

    Say what you will about the story, but Pitch Black at least looks and sounds stunning.

    This is damaged goods from the opening Poly Gram logo.

  • Robert Wilonsky

    It's just a familiar bore, offering chills and thrills only to those who have never seen a movie before.

    Dallas Observer Full Review
  • Kevin Thomas

    A routine sci-fi/horror action-adventure, takes us where we've been countless times before.

  • Desson Thomson

    You are allowed to come up with a monster we haven't seen before.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • John Hartl

    Quite shameless in imitating its predecessors. Full Review
  • Barbara Shulgasser

    A rather wan version of "Jurassic Park" - a series of setups featuring humans being picked off by bigger, faster and stronger carnivores.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Jami Bernard

    It has a distinctive look but a few too many recycled ideas; better luck on the next crash-landing.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Bob Stephens

    The sudden cranking of the volume that makes us jump, even if we're just watching a cow chew on its cud.

    San Francisco Examiner Full Review
  • Milton Kent

    A gigantic mess.

    Baltimore Sun Full Review
  • Bob Graham

    This half-baked sci-fi horror film, filled with jerky, washed-out, highlighted, blurred and toned imagery, is a tiresome experience.
