I agree 100%, and thats why I was let down by Riddick. Chronicles had SO much plot. Too much for most people, but that was the reason I loved it.

But that's what most "fans" wanted, another Pitchblack. So that's what they gave them. I liked the new Riddick for what it was, but I'll only watch it twice. I've watched Chronicles about 100 times. That's the difference. Chronicles had sub-plots, backgrounds, flashbacks, plot, great characters, action, superior dialogue, good editing, good sequence- not alway linear, reminded me of Dune (but didn't rip Dune off in any way). I'm not a huge Vin Diesel fan either. You don't have to be.Anyone who likes Sci-Fi, provided they don't have ADD, would agree The Chronicles of Riddick was by far the best film out of the series. Ah well. Maybe next time hmm?

As much as it is a sharp, comic look at a vacant and corrupt world, MAPS TO THE STARS is also a haunting ghost story.
