I thought this screenplay was absolutely boring and it wasn't even scary.

What I liked most about this script was its pace. The dialogue, direction and story pull were apparent in every scene. I think everyone has been let down by alien monster movies and we now expect something that ranks up there with ALIENS 1 and 2. Not gonna happen. This story seemed to be made around Riddick which was why alien developement was less important. It's a good concept. The sequel would have really taken off if not for the over the top effects and bad acting.

Surprised to see the low score; thought it was a very effective film with a unconventionally strong female lead (whose ruthlessness and cowardice are tested by conflict) and a more prosaic, understated view of the future than most sci-fi.

Great film. It wasn't an over the top special effects film, which made more real . The sequel was, so even a good story line could seem crap.

This movie was amazing. It had a lot of action, it was really well done and the sequel to it was even better.

Great movie. If you're looking for a thoughtless alien-monster action movie, this isn't it. Most movies that try to have a bad guy be the good guy drive me crazy with their complete rationalization of the morality of it all and attempts to make the "bad" really "cool"; Riddick is the exception. This character is great and the movie uses him real well. If The Chronicles of Riddick is making you avoid this, don't let it. Pitch Black is ten times better and succeeds in all the places that its sequel fails.

@Sean Reynolds- This is merely a revision of the first draft. Not the final film. Plenty was changed when the final film comes out. Also, the director's vision, quality of the acting, and music used in a film can completely change the pace and feel of a story. This first draft seems pretty cheesy. Nothing like the actual film. But that's to be expected. No first draft is perfect, and this script had plenty of potential. It might not be your sort of film, but it kept me on the edge of my seat first time through.

Interesting but it's clearly not the shooting script, which is the one I was looking for.

Dawn (10 out of 10 )
I love this script, it's an awesome story. Movie isn't bad either.

Good thing this came out before 9/11, otherwise the studio probably would have decided that Chrislam is too "controversial".
