I think it's an utter piece of trash.

A shameless pastiche of 80s action movies with heavy ripoffs from Dune in terms of the feel they were GOING for, with the added bonus of every bad Conan cliche they could find.

"I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain."

al right, i guess it might be a bit of a rip off, but what isn't these days?

I have a rendezvous with death, At some disputed barricade, it may be that he shall take my hand, and lead me into his dark land, and close my eyes and quench my breath, I have a rendezvous with death, and i to my pledged word am true, i shall not fail that rendezvous...

i love that one to! quote: "One rule, stay in the light." also have you seen the other movie? it's called 'Dark Fury'. it's only a short cartoon though, but it fills in on a few questions that were left unanswered....

I also think it was a great movie, Pitch Black was far greater. I've heard somewhere that there's going to be a Chronicles 2 and the possibility of another after that. It wouldn't be that much of a shock considering how Vin Diesel's made no secret of how much he love's the character Riddick and all. It might not be for a few years tho as he's currently working on 'Hannibal the Conqueror' which should be out in late 2009.

I personally think both movies are awesome... (I actually think the reverse about Dune.) and I am really hoping for a third, though unlikely. I have seen Dark Fury and though I wasn't a big fan of the anime style I did like the content and the loose ends it tied up.

As for being a total rip off of other things: I don't think so, but thats just my opinion. Everyone is allowed differing tastes in films and if you're loyal to an older film any similarities in newer ones (intensional or not) are going to irritate. Purely new ideas are near impossible to come by and have been for a very long time... it is very difficult indeed to find anything in GW which is truely of their invention.

It's the hamfistedness of the pastiche that's particularly galling.

"I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain."

while that may be true it's still a good pastiche Col Deschain
