Rocks hit the ship and fly through, taking out some of the passengers and sending the ship spiraling towards an unknown planet. Fry(Rhada Mitchell) takes over the group, and there are others who are left, including a criminal named Riddick(Vin Diesel) who happens to be able to see in the dark.

Only there’s one problem – every so often, there’s a rare occurence where an eclipse sends the planet into total darkness. And at that time, the aliens who only come out to play in the rare darkness attack. Much of the early half of the film revolves around Riddick – tracking him down and getting him to help, but the second half of the film starts the action a little quicker.

The movie starts up the tension very well during the second half of the picture, and is successful in not letting go till the end.MV5BOGE4MmNjYjMtYTM0My00ZGY5LWIwZjQtNDRkZWI4YWI3YjgxXkEyXkFqcGdeQXVyNTQxOTM1NTc@._V1_SX1777_CR0,0,1777,999_AL_Pitch Black works simply as an entertaining low budget Sci-Fi Movie.
