Dark Fury is a very nice, very well made, true to the character and beautifully told animate movie that was created to flesh out Riddick’s character. This is a smart and well told 35 minute action packed animated movie.

Any fan of the Riddick character will be pleased with the animated version of Riddick and the voice work of Vin Diesel as the legendary Riddick. It can be difficult when creating an animated version of an heroic character to stay close to the character. The temptation to venture further into the fantastic is very present when creating an animated version of a story. Kudos to Peter Chung for remaining true to the character and giving us a storyline that progresses clearly and builds on the characters we are familiar with while staying consistent to who they are.

The storyline is simple enough in this animated movie. Riddick, Jack and Imam are captured by an intergalactic bounty hunter who has a taste for men of violence. She wants to see Riddick in action and to guarantee he will perform she threatens the lives of Jack and Imam. Any inaction on behalf of Riddick will of course result in the death of Jack and Imam.

All in all this is a sound effort and well worth adding to your Riddick or Anime collection.
