When the renegade crew of Serenity agrees to hide a fugitive on their ship, they find themselves in an action-packed battle between the relentless military might of a totalitarian regime who will destroy anything - or anyone - to get the girl back and the bloodthirsty creatures who roam the uncharted areas of space. But, the greatest danger of all may be on their ship.
Dear 'Who Ever Was Responsible For Cancelling Firefly",
I don't know who you are. I don't know what you want. If you are looking for sadistic pleasure in annoying fanboys, I am in no position to stop you, as I do not have patience for people like you. But what I do have are a very particular set of skills; skills I have acquired over a very long career. Skills that make me a nightmare for people like you. If you bring Firefly back now, that'll be the end of it. I will not look for you, I will not pursue you. But if you don't, I will look for you, I will find you, and I will kill you.
(Just kiddin', o'course, but seriously, mate, do all of us a favour and bring it back. I won't ask nicely again...)
Every single time....
In good company
Caught in the momentum
Lump in throat
Completely and utterly miserable
Every single time.....
A damn near perfect film - fun, entertaining, always moving forward, never stopping to re-fuel. It's a testament to Whedon's brilliant writing, directing, characters and actors that it works nearly just as well stand-alone as it does when viewed after Firefly.
Made me watch Firefly and confronted me with one of the greates mysteries known to man. Why on earth was this series cancelled?????
Serenity was my vector into the ‘verse oh so many years ago. At the time we didn’t have any knowledge of Firefly, and didn’t for years after. I remember finding it quite enjoyable, and rather unique in the crowded sci-fi action genre.
Then one day, I don’t remember how, my wife made the discovery about Firefly. A few years had passed, so we didn’t remember Serenity all that well, just that we liked it. We sourced the series, and after watching the first few episodes we were completely and totally in love. My son came up for a weekend and we hooked him too. Even though he came in a few episodes in, he quickly became as much of a…
People talked about this being the Star Wars for the new millennium. That's a bold statement and something not everyone agrees with. We had three prequels from Mr Megabucks Lucas of questionable quality that slightly tarnished and I mean only slightly tarnished his original trilogy. "Serenity" was a whole new kettle of fish and one that stood on it's own two feet and shouldn't have been compared to Lucas's genre-defining blockbusters.
A simple story told really well with great special effects, a witty script and some novel twists on the future of mankind, this was a very clever film and television series that ended all too soon. Comparisons are always made and I don't think this was ever truly appreciated…
space adventure me like
Joss Whedon's bouncy, busy feature-directing debut was made on the advantage of the cult stature of his fly-by-night series Firefly to vindicate its conclusion on the big screen. The sets and the attitude are surreal, and surprisingly more brutal than the show, focusing a lot more on the horrific galactic infestation of Reivers, but the human charm is down-to-earth and relatable, the ethical dilemmas knotty and involved. Whedon shows how much affection he has for his fans by giving them a choice big-screen send-off. New viewers are inevitably a little confused, and longing fans can't entirely be satisfied on every single conceivable level, but there's enough verbal wit and agile pacing in Serenity to satisfy as much as it could.
Action/thriller divertente che non ha cadute di tono e intrattiene con gusto estetico e ritmo.
It was nice to see Nathan Fillion playing a different role other than the one he does as Richard Castle in the TV series. Even nicer than this was to watch a sci-fi action film with such great effects and storyline.

The show firefly, although short lived, running for a mere one season, had a unmistakable charm to it. A cast of likable characters, From our Protagonist Captain Reynolds, The wise yet mysterious Shepard book and every other member of the Firefly crew.
So the big question is, does this movie "Serenity" effectively end the story the show left off on? Is the charm of this Science fiction series still here? The answer is yes, yes it does, and yes it is.
All the actors returned to reprise their roles, and are back in charming form as their characters. The sets are fairly good, and although the special FX are dated and somewhat bad, it's still not unwatchable.
The movie itself…

A lot of fun, especially if you like the show, but the stakes felt kind of trumped up and only there for a possible sequel. With our current view on media I just have to think the video is pointless. What percentage of the alliance's citizenship would even think the video was legit? Just seems like a big strerch that this would hurt the Alliance at all, the primary antagonist even hints it won't do much. So why risk everything on that?
Bitching aside the quips land and are what you would expect from Wedon, his dirction is okay and particulary above average in the climax. We'll see if he gets another chance as his original works all turn out to be a little niche.
I still think he has seen "Outlaw Star" as some of the Reavers ships were clearly "grappler" ships.
Some nights it's nice to just sit back with and enjoy an old friend.
Watched this in the cinemas when it came out and enjoyed it.
Never got into the series.
Enjoyed watching it the second time as I could not remember it too well.
Lo que Star Wars nunca será.
No se si es mágico o trágico, o tráfico.
