You know, I never saw the movie “Pitch Black” a few years ago, and because of that I didn’t even realize Vin Diesel was associated with that movie, and as I watched the trailer again I wondered about this movie.

The synopsis kinda goes that Riddick (Vin) has been on the run for the past few years as people try to hunt him down because there’s a bounty on his head. In the meantime, there’s this Lord Marshal dude (Colm Feore), who pretty much captures humans with these things called Necromongers. Well, Riddick gets captured, hooks up with some chick, and finds himself fighting Lord Marshal and his Necromongers, and because of this it’s up to him to save the planet he’s on.

Okay, so the story is as strange as any other trying to save another planet from evil people, but this one’s got Vin so you can pretty much assume the action gets kicked up a couple of notches. As Dwayne Johnson (that’s The Rock if you didn’t know) and Vin fight for bragging rights for action bad-ass, I think Dwayne’s got an edge with him in “Walking Tall,” but Vin is fun in his own right, so I plan on catching this movie even if I’m not really sure what it’s about.

That’s it for this preview! I’m The Dude on the Right!! L8R!!!
