"The Chronicles of Riddick"

Liz and I went to see this movie yesterday. Visually, I really liked the costumes and the special effects. There was only one effect that looked fake; the rest were pretty solid. The sound was overly-loud whenever a ship flew by, but that was bearable. What wasn't bearable was the plot line. It just didn't make any sense from the first movie (and I really liked "Pitch Black"). What the hell was the Underverse? Who were the Necromongers? Why did Riddick almost cry at the end? I like the Riddick character, but this movie was not a good continuation of the first one. Sadly, like most Hollywood ventures, this could have been a decent 2nd movie, but somebody screwed it up.
