Western meets SciFi
Terrific. Not to be missed, but it does help if you first know the characters as developed in the cult series "Firefly".

best of times
After Wheddons incredible success with The Avengers its a great time to be a Firefly fan...there's no talk of any sequel but the cast are still up for one and Wheddons bank in Hollywood is so strong atm that the possibility must be there ...even if its a slim one

Pity it is on the dreaded ITV channel but if you were disappointed by George Lucas' shameless racism in Star Wars episodes 1, 2 & 3 and the fact that were all so TERRIBLE, then sit back and enjoy a really excellent romp with the crew of Serenity. Easily one of the finest science fiction films of recent years, on a par with Dark Star and Silent Running. Incidentally, I notice that most of the dissenters on this page have not watched more than a few minutes of this film. Says it all really.

This film has everything, action, humour and the hottest starship mechanic you are ever likely to see.

One of the best sci-fi films ever. Beats the likes of star trek xi without any effort and even better than revenge of the sith and made without their budget. Action, space battles interesting storyline and all with a sense of humour, what more could you want?

Dissing Serenity, that's a funny one. Joss did a wonderful job of translating his criminally cancelled Firefly to the big screen. Idiots don't like Firefly, idiots don't like Serenity, but kudos on trying to be different, scratch that, you're idiots.

To the Firefly series. Glau finally gets to deliver her grace and skills to her character River Tam, whilst managing to retain much of the mystery surrounding River's true capabilities. The story makes some very heartwrenching and brave decisions seriously affecting the cast and franchise over any possible sequels. This is a sequal, so relies heavily on our familiiarity with the characters. So it is preferrable to have seen "Firefly", the TV series, first.
