Left for dead on a sun-scorched planet, Riddick finds himself up against an alien race of predators. Activating an emergency beacon alerts two ships: one carrying a new breed of mercenary, the other captained by a man from Riddick's past.
The wanted criminal Richard Bruno Riddick (Vin Diesel) arrives on a planet called Helion Prime and finds himself up against an invading empire called the Necromongers, an army that plans to convert or kill all humans in the universe.
Veteran-turned-mercenary Toorop takes the high-risk job of escorting a woman from Russia to America. Little does he know that she is host to an organism that a cult wants to harvest in order to produce a genetically modified Messiah.
Extreme athlete turned government operative Xander Cage (Vin Diesel) comes out of self-imposed exile, thought to be long dead, and is set on a collision course with deadly alpha warrior Xiang (Donnie Yen) and his team in a race to recover a sinister and seemingly unstoppable weapon known as Pandora's Box. Recruiting an all-new group of thrill-seeking cohorts, Xander finds himself enmeshed in a deadly conspiracy that points to collusion at the highest levels of world governments.Written by
On the way to recover Pandora's Box in Detroit, Xander's (Vin Diesel's) team is driving a yellow van with the signs "Pork Chop Express" and "since 1985". "The Pork Chop Express" was the name of the truck driven by Jack Burton (Kurt Russell) in Big Trouble in Little China (1986). See more »
In the final few minutes when the cargo plan is in a nosedive, everyone in the plane is suspended in midair as if there's zero gravity when in fact they're heading towards the ground. The plane nosediving towards the ground would cause weightlessness for a brief period (this is exactly what the Vomit Comet does over the Gulf of Mexico), but what is shown in film is too long for that period of weightlessness.

You know how I came up with the idea for the Triple-X program? Skateboards and swimming pools.

I went to the movie as a way of waiting for my kid who was seeing a different movie, my wife came with me. I honestly was not expecting anything buy explosions, impossible stunts and a bad story. Boy was a wrong, what we got was 2 explosions, stunts that should not be in any movie because they are not possible by any shape or means in real life, and a story that was far worse than i originally expected. The acting and script were really bad to boot.
I guess they took the Michael Bay philosophy, i.e. who needs story and script when you can dazzle them with action and stunts, but you really cant.
I cannot make up my mind if most of America is really dumb in liking this stuff, or they just manage to switch off their intelligent part of their brain when they do, i seem to be unable to switch off however.
