Black boasts a
cast comprised entirely of relatively unknown but supremely
talented actors, foremost among them the intensely
charismatic Vin Diesel. As the bad-ass, muscle-bound,
gravel-voiced criminal Riddick, Vin Diesel is a man destined
for action figure status; what's even cooler is that he can
really act. Like most of the characters in Pitch
Black, Riddick initially appears to be no more than a two-dimensional
plot device, as the film progresses, he reveals a surprising depth
and complexity that is only
magnified by Diesel's incredible appeal.

(played by Diesel) is looking for meaning and
intimacy in his life. Like his testosterone-tweaked
buddies, Rick is a "stray" -- lacking a traditional
family structure and wrestling subconsciously with
the psychological bruises inflicted by his father's
absence. Shielding any vulnerability under the
toughened cloak of detachment, Rick has
administered his life with a deliberate effort
reliance on anyone or anything. But things are about to change.
When Rick meets Heather, a corn-fed
walking-talking "girl next door," he suddenly
perceives a new avenue and an opportunity for an
open, committed relationship. Though the chemistry
between the couple is immediately charged, Rick's
street cheek and volatile aggression flare, threatening
to extinguish their relationship before it begins.
Trying to assimilate into Heather's world, Rick takes
heat from his perpetually adolescent cohorts, whose
ambitions are restricted to riding fast, toking slow,
and ditching hard. However, like his childhood alter
ego, Ferdinand the Bull, Rick is only a fighter by
training and ripe for the transition to a softer,
