I watched Serenity with Dave today, which means I have officially seen all there is to see of the Firefly series. Serenity, like the TV show it was spun-off from, was wicked-awesome. The movie picks up some time after the series ends. In the opening sequence one mystery from the series is cleared up. The action really doesn’t let up from there. The focus of the film is really on River, and her mysterious past. The movie is very much like the television show, so if you were a Firefly fan I am sure you’ll like the film. (I suspect if you are already a Firefly fan you will have already seen the film.) The dialog is great, and the actors do a fine job reprising their roles from the show. Everyone from the main cast is back for the movie. I would have liked to have seen some of the more interesting extras from the series; no one really makes an appearance. I still can’t believe they cancelled the show. It is so good. If you haven’t seen the series, I really recommend that you do. It is a very atypical science-fiction series. You really don’t have to be a fan of sci-fi to enjoy it.

  1. I saw it in Sydney on DVD, I loved the show and the movie so much. I must worship Jana for turning me onto the show. I can only hope they make more movies or somehow bring back the show. You gotta love Mal!

Don't be shy, you can comment too!

Some things to keep in mind: You can style comments using Textile. In particular, *text* will get turned into text and _text_ will get turned into text. You can post a link using the command "linktext":link, so something like "google": will get turned in to google. I may erase off-topic comments, or edit poorly formatted comments; I do this very rarely.
