The crew are back but this time it's a movie not a TV series. The directing and the characters are the best part of this movie but am not a fan of firefly if I have to be honest so I thought this movie was alright.

As someone who had never watched a single episode of Firefly before seeing Serenity, I was refreshed by the combination of a solid sci-fi film with Whedon's signature humor-filled, gleeful directing style. The film is exciting throughout and a fun ride, even for those unfamiliar with the source material.

Serenity Sucks. There I said it.

There are a few things that fanboys, geeks, nerds, and similar groups of like-minded social outcasts must understand and accept. One of them is the plain and simple fact that even though Firefly was an awesome tv series, the movie that Joss Whedon made as a continuation was just terrible. I'm gonna get assassinated for saying this probably but Serenity is a terrible movie.
Newcomers would be confused as **** by the writing and the mythology of the series. The central conflict of the film emerges in the third act and afterwards, all the characters act like this was what the movie was about when it was clearly just a bunch of actors confined to a spaceship for sixty minutes.
Granted, the villain is awesome and becomes the most memorable aspect of an otherwise mediocre film which does tr...

Serenity review

A mixture of humor, horror, drama, western, action and sci-fi all rolled into one package. This type of picture smiply gets better as you view this from the very first scenes. It boils down to this message from the flick - "We meant it for the bestů to make people safer." and yet detrimental effects occur. Malcolm "Mal" (Nathan Fillion) is the Captain of Serenity, where his team consists of Zoe (Gina Torres), pilot Hoban "Wash" (Alan Tudyk), Inara (Morena Baccarin), weapons expert Jayne (Adam Baldwin), mechanic Kaylee (Jewel Staite), doctor Simon (Sean Maher) and his psychic sister River (Summer Glau). Only minor gripes would be the lack of character development/participation of Inara and better special effects in certain scenes, but doesn't necessarily affect the picture. Performan...

"Serenity" by Yojimbo

The crew of a spaceship operating on the ragged edge of civilisation are targeted by the ruling Alliance for harbouring a pair of fugitives that have knowledge of a secret that is potentially devastating to their regime. The fans of cult sci-fi western Firefly were aware that Joss Whedon was capable of creating a hugely enjoyable fantasy blockbuster a good while before The Avengers hit our screens. Serenity is the conclusion to the swiftly - and unjustly - cancelled TV show and contains the same formula of likable characters, funny one-liners and space bound action that made it so beloved by the few who actually saw it. The idea of a roguish smuggler going head to head with a charismatic villain to expose the folly of an evil empire is not unlike that of a certain other infamous franchise...
