Riddick is charged with stopping the Necromonger army from its evil grip, meanwhile rescuing an old friend from a prison planet and evading capture by bounty hunters.

The Chronicles of Riddick Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

The Chronicles of Riddick arrives on Blu-ray with a high quality 1080p transfer framed inside a 2.35:1 window. After a more depressed, dull, and colorless opening sequence, the film livens up once the action switches to Helion Prime. Color reproduction is impressive, the image basted in a slight golden hue. The many colors scattered about, primarily the reds and golds of Helion Prime, sparkle, though they later give way to the dark grays and lifeless locales of both the Necromnger ships and the harsh reds and grays of Crematoria. Detail is highly impressive throughout; whether in the long, flowing robes worn by the Imam or the revelation of every bead of sweat, pore, hair, and other markings on human faces, the disc offers plenty of clarity that sometimes borders on visual perfection. Black levels and flesh tones are nicely reproduced throughout. The Chronicles of Riddick isn't the best-looking disc available, but it ranks above many others.


The Chronicles of Riddick Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  5.0 of 5

The Chronicles of Riddick explodes onto Blu-ray with a high-powered DTS-HD MA 5.1 lossless soundtrack. This track wastes no time in cranking out the goods. It is immediately impressive as powerful sound flows from the entire soundstage. The film's score is loud and clear, accompanied by thunderous bass from both the percussion section of the orchestra as well as the numerous loud and distinct sound effects. Sound swoops around the listening area in a 360-degree sound field, pouring out of the rear channels as loudly and aggressively as the front. The opening chase again features rumbling bass that punishes the best of sound systems, with impressive directionality and unforgiving bass. This level of aggressive excellence continues throughout. Rarely do more than a few minutes go by without a loud, exciting sonic sequence that flows from every speaker. While all the shootouts border on stunning, one heard in chapter eighteen makes for one of the highlights of the track. It plays sans music, and the crackle of gunfire, both loud and distant, is heard coming form every corner of the soundstage to wonderful and seemingly realistic effect. Dialogue reproduction is strong and authoritative throughout. The Chronicles of Riddick's lossless soundtrack is another masterful effort from Universal.
