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. Pitch Black is a 2000 science fiction thriller film co-written and directed by David Twohy. The film stars Vin Diesel, Radha Mitchell, Cole Hauser, and Keith David.

In the film, dangerous criminal Richard B. Riddick (Diesel) is being transported to prison in a cargo spacecraft. When the spaceship is damaged by comet debris and makes an emergency crash landing on an empty desert planet, Riddick escapes. However, when predatory alien creatures begin attacking the survivors, Riddick joins forces with the surviving crew and other passengers to develop a plan to escape the planet.

While passing near a desert planet, the comet debris cloud rupture the hull, killing some of the crew, as well as the captain. The rest of the crew, which includes a docking pilot, Carolyn Fry, and her co-pilot Greg Owens, attempt to land the ship on a nearby planet, as the ship starts to rupture and fall apart as the heat of the atmosphere and also the meteors start to tear the ship apart, forcing Fry to dump some of the sections of the ship to give them a landing.

Fry, in a moment of desperation, tries to dump the passenger section of the ship to reduce their weight and give her a better chance of landing, rather intending to have 40 people killed to save herself. Owens, shocked by the lack of her morality, locks out the releasing mechanisms to stop Fry from killing them, but is killed when the ship crash lands. Fry joins the surviving ten passengers, among them an Imam, a law enforcement officer named William J. Johns, and a young boy named Jack. Johns was tasked with escorting Riddick back to prison.

They come across an abandoned geological research settlement, with supplies of water and an emergency dropship with drained batteries. In the coring room at the settlement they discover more creatures, and one of Imam’s children is killed. The group also discovers a model showing that very soon the planet will be eclipsed for an extended period of time and the creatures will be free to hunt above ground. Riddick rejoins the group, remaining calm unlike Johns said, and they all agree to go back to the crash site and retrieve the power cells from the downed ship, which will then be used to power the escape ship. Riddick talks to Fry privately and reveals that Johns(shown above) is not actually a law officer, but is in fact a morphine addicted mercenary who is here to collect a bounty on Riddick.

After Imam(far left) notices they have crossed their own tracks, the group stops and Riddick reveals that the creatures hunt by blood and that Jack(in the middle of Imam and Fry) is bleeding.  Johns pulls Riddick aside and offers him a deal; if Riddick kills Jack and uses her as bait to lure the creatures away, Johns will report that Riddick died in the crash and let him go. However, Riddick, who is actually has a high sense of ethics and morality and knowing that Johns is lying, severely wounds Johns and uses him as the bait, seeing Johns more amoral and opportunistic than himself.

I saw this movie recently on Saturday. Bought it on Blu-Ray, so i decided to watch it. This was one of the most anticipated movies during the summer. People all over the world, waiting for another great marvel movie. And it gave exactly that. This movie has so many shockers, for people who don’t read the comics, so if you read the comics, you can maybe know whats really going on.

Anthony-Mackie-really-wants-to-be-in-Avengers-Age-of-Ultron

Anthony Mackie starring one of the new introduced Marvel super heroes, The Falcon. He may not look like how he does in the comics, but he sure does fit the part in the action packed movie. If your looking for a jam packed movie this is packed with enough to drive you wild.

If your expecting to see The Falcon, looking like this…your going to be disappointed. In this movie he is introduced as a ex-military solider. And he doesn’t fly along side a falcon either. Marvel may not follow most of its comics, but it sure does stick to their story lines. Which comic book fans should be happy about.
