Aro Recommended Serenity


USA 2005, 119 minutes
Dir. Joss Whedon
Rating: [M]
Genres: Science Fiction / Adventure

Topics: TV Spin-off.


Aroview: Thoroughly enjoyable sci-fi romp based upon the cult TV series FIREFLY, in which the ship 'Serenity' cruises a future solar federation of human settlers, living off petty crime and smuggling assignments, before being caught up in a deadly political scandal.

Captain of the vessel is the put-upon Nathan Fillion, who breaks his usual mercenary scruples to assist a psychic commando and her brother, on the run with damaging secret information. Recalling STAR WARS' free-running blend of action, drama and sardonic humour, this handles its story with unusual deftness, working in unfussy CGI f/x and a thoughfully-devised story backdrop.
