[edit]

Synopsis: Riddick and the other two survivors of the previous adventure are caught by a woman with a very twisted sense of artistic beauty.


Reaction: The animation is cool, but the story isn't particularly deep. This was largely created to help bridge the gap between Pitck Black and The Chronicles of Riddick.


Personal Rating: 7/10

Riddick decides to drop off both Jack and Imam and Helion Prime and retire himself to the UV system on Planet 6.
