The Chronicles of Riddick (2000 & 2004)
A science fiction directed by David Twohy, starring Vin Diesel. A criminal with eyes altered for night vision crash lands on a planet when the prison ship carrying him goes down. He defends the civilians aboard the craft from the monsters on tat planet that only come out at night. Years later (and skipping a film), he fights against an evil and powerful group called the Necromongers.
The first film (named Pitch Black) was decent and almost cool. The anti-hero with night vision fighting night monsters is cool. The CG was decent and it had some style. The later film was terrible! The little gimmick used in the first one had expired and it seemed like a sci-fi channel presentation. I'm giving this a mixed review.
