Best Sci-Fi ever made without Aliens
Here we go again, another Sci-Fi right?? Well, this time you are in for a HUGE surprise. Creator Joss Whedon (Buffy the Vampire Slayer & Angel) brings to life a new look at Sci-Fi with this story of space travelers on the run in deep space, yet no Aliens. The entire story has nothing but the humans of earth exploring space all alone.
The movie picks up from the short lived Firefly TV series that aired back in 2002 on Fox. The series itself is very well made and does have some really good episodes. Only aired for the Fall of 2002 because stupid FOX ran the show OUT OF ORDER!?!?! If you can believe it, they decided to run the Pilot episode that totally introduced all the characters in DECEMBER!!! What is with that??
Serenity was the completion of where Firefly was trying to go. The movie picks up right after the last episode of Firefly left off. Every member of the Firefly cast returned to play in the movie. There is not much to say about the quality of the movie, only that it totally took me by surprise. The story is so well written, and each character plays off each other so well that you can't help but enjoy watching them. Watching the TV series first does help with the understanding of the movie, but is in no way required. Watching the movie first is what made me want to watch the TV series. The choose is up to you.
So, stop reading this review, and go check it out. I am willing to bet that more than half the people that view this movie who love Sci-Fi will go out and buy it the next chance they get. You will simply not be disappointed.Read full review

Great movie viewing. Entertaining.
Nathan Fillion and the Firefly gang are at their best in this concluding movie.
From Buffy the Vampire Slayer to the FIrefly Series to Castle, Fillion brings amazing presence, energy and fun to the screen.

AWESOME movie !!!
An excellent movie and great conclusion to the Firefly series. It was great to see the Firefly characters again. It wrapped up a most of the loose ends left when the series ended. Most, but not all. We still don't find out who "The Shepard" (played by Ron Glass) really is. The cinematography is great as is the writing.

Shiny. I aimed to misbehave and went to that special hell.
The ending was sad, but it had to be. If you are a Firefly Fan at all, you will want this movie.
