Pitch Black: Directed by David Twohy. With Vin Diesel, Radha Mitchell, Cole Hauser, Keith David. A commercial transport ship and its crew are marooned on a planet full of bloodthirsty creatures that only come out to feast at night. But then, they learn that a month-long eclipse is about to occur.
After watching all 8 of the F&F movies, I still had a taste for more Vin Diesel in my life, and as I had just read the book, I felt the Riddick series was a logical next step. The movie still holds up, if only because Riddick isn’t the main character. He’s one of them, surely, but I’d argue that the others in the cast made a fantastic impact on the final result.
