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.

Way to go for getting closure for a very unique series. But...the plot is more than just a little iffy when it comes to morality and no kiss for Mal and Inara? Criminal.

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...

Serenity

Joss Whedon, creator of Buffy, Firefly and Dollhouse, is by far the director with the most devoted fanbase ever, and there's a reason for that. After the roaring success of the Buffy television series, Whedon busied himself with creating the most recognisable sci-fi television series in history, mashing several genres into one exhilirating show effectively.

That show, Firefly, was praised by critical acclaim, although it faired very poorly with the home viewers, and was unfortunatly cancelled mid-season. But from that spawned a film adaptation, financed in great part by the massive fandom that sprang from Firefly.

Although Serenity is now hailed as a striking example of good sci-fi filmaking, it will definitely not appeal to everyone. It has a very unique style and atmosphere, comb...
