In a previous review, I discussed the television series Firefly. Serenity is the movie that was made two years after Fox canceled the series.
Joss Whedon had an interesting dilemma — create a movie that anyone could see without having to see the TV series, while adding new stuff for those who did see the show. Given that task, I think he did a decent balancing job.
He brought back the original actors, some with slightly different situations. He did a good job of wrapping up some loose ends from the show and the ending was satisfactory. I may not have liked where some characters ended up, but then it was not my story to tell — that may be because I watched the series immediately before watching the movie.
The DVD includes:
- deleted scenes
- audio commentaries
My advice: enjoyable. If you are wanting something that is not your typical sci-fi movie, then check this one out…
