Don't be afraid of the dark. Be afraid of what's in the dark.
The daylight can burn you, but the darkness will kill you. From the mind of the writer of The Fugitive comes the pulse-pounding sci-fi thriller, Pitch Black. Experience the psychological terror when a group of marooned passengers must face a pack of terrifying creatures whose only weakness is the light. With little power and dwindling numbers, the doomed passengers turn to a vicious convict (Vin Diesel) with an appetite for destruction and eerie eyes that can guide them through the darkness.
In Pitch Black we are introduced to Riddick, a convict with eerie looking eyes, who can see in the dark and is one heck of a fighter. This is the first in the Riddick movies.
You start the movie just as the ship hits something and begins to crash. They land on a strange planet, no water, three suns and a convict on your ship? Could things get any worse? Of course they can when they find out the night is coming, and what lies in the dark, is worse than Riddick.
The special effects weren't anything unique and in fact I felt that they were more of an excuse so as not to have as much plot in the movie. There were parts where it showed you what the creatures were seeing, but, once or twice is good, but more often.... not really a good thing.
The plot was nothing that good, the special effects were simply ok, as a movie overall it was nothing that great.
