Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Chronicles of Riddick is a sci-fi action movie that isn't very good, and has intense and graphic violence, including people getting fried in intense heat and a lot of fighting. Characters are in constant peril and many are killed, there are a few four-letter words, and a character speaks of being forced into prostitution. The movie's few strengths are that there are diverse characters on both sides and the way it makes clear that the good guys stand for tolerance.

Sexual references, including to forced prostitution, some unwelcome groping.
