Great movie value! I bought this movie because I had watched the DVD collection of the first (& only) season of FIREFLY. I cannot praise the series or movie enough! Great characterizations, great writing, plots, stories, character development--Joss Whedon is a master at creating completely believable worlds of alternate reality. You come to really CARE about his characters, and when a series (and in this case, a movie) ends, you feel a profound sadness that it's not going on indefinitely. The movie is terrific, but if you haven't seen the FIREFLY series, you may be confused at first, because the movie begins where the series leaves off. Do yourself a favor, and try to find the FIREFLY series--you won't be sorry! In this series, Joss Whedon takes us to the distant future, and his space odyssey is flavored with an old west, gunfight at the OK Corral-type atmosphere. If you're not a futuristic outer space buff, but you like shoot-em up westerns, there's a good chance you, too, will enjoy SERENITY. However, if you're concerned about young children and movie violence, this may be a bit too intense; save it for the teenagers and adults!
a friend recommended this to me, but directed me to the "firefly" series first, before watching Serenity. He was SOOO right about that and It all came together in Serenity. Outstanding, vivid, and sometimes disturbing, but very entertaining. Oh, yes! Not for children under 17 as I see it.

Serenity is a very fun sci-fi movie. It is so visually pleasing that I watched it two days in a row. The great part is that you don't have to have watched the "Fire Fly" series to enjoy this movie. It does make me want to now watch the "Fire Fly" series. Kind of like Star Trek and Raw Hide rolled into one.
