Lightning Review: The Chronicles of Riddick: Dark Fury

The Chronicles of Riddick: Dark Fury movie posterSynopsis
After Riddick (Vin Diesel), Imam (Keith David), and Jack (Rhiana Griffith) escape the desert planet, they are picked up by a mercenary ship.

Review
Dark Fury‘s premise is to connect Pitch Black with The Chronicles of Riddick, and it does so very well. Though it does serves more as epilogue to Pitch Black than a prologue to Chronicles. Imam and Jack get closure as to what happens to them after Pitch Black and Jack’s character development carries over into Chronicles.  It also shows the first meeting between Toombs (Nick Chinlund) and Riddick. The animation style is done by Peter Chung, who is also responsible for The Animatrix short Matriculated. For the most part it is pretty slick, but during the fight scenes, the outlines can get heavy and make it look weird. Dark Fury looks great and does an excellent job of bridging the gap between the first two Riddick movies.

Rating
3/5
