Lyles' Movie Files

After suffering through a summer crammed with TV shows being remade into movies, it's refreshing to see a movie based on a TV show that is so entertaining that it actually makes you want to go and see the show of which the movie was created.

New viewers will be a little bit lost, and old fans won't get quite everything they wanted, but there's enough going on in Serenity and it's all so much fun that it doesn't matter.

In the end you are left with the feeling that Whedon works better on television than in the cinema.

Hardcore fans will undoubtedly be satisfied but its unlikely this will spread much beyond that audience, and even they will find it lacks that human spark and freshness that made the series distinctive and appealing.

For what it is -- viewed as filmmaking in and of itself -- Serenity is tense and smoothly put together.

A magnificent closer to the series, and Whedon shows how much love he has for his fans by giving us a quality finisher...

Joss Whedon makes a rousing feature-directing debut, exploiting the cult status of his short-lived series Firefly to continue it on the big screen.

Firefly finally has the triumphant finale fans longed for: the excitingly tense, often surprising and even more frequently comical Serenity. Fans will rejoice.

The settings and tone are hyper-real, yet the human behaviour is grounded and credible, the moral conflicts complex and involving. Shiny, intelligent fun.

Orlando Weekly

In the context of an action cinema driven by false hope, misogyny and sadism, Serenity is an inspiring respite.

Sacramento News & Review

The movie is a sci-fi buccaneer swashbuckler; Whedon hits all the obligatory space-opera notes, and he does it with a degree of verbal wit and agile pacing that could teach George Lucas a thing or two.

Go out and see Joss Whedon's witty whizbang of an action movie, or we will kill a kitten.

If you're a novice, this is a plucky introduction to Whedon's world and the most fun sci-fi of the year. If you're a devotee, this is the magnificent return you've been praying for.

I personally didn't care when anyone died, I was bored for most of the way, wasn't impressed by its few action scenes.

It has everything the TV series possessed, but also manages to elevate the tension to the next level.

Any fan of Sci-Fi should enjoy this one. It's a bit too gory for the little people,but older kids and the parents, should have a blast.

Those familiar with the series will be quite pleased that there were some interesting ideas behind the fun adventures. It was a pleasure to see what was really happening and also to return to the characters of the series. But objectively I cannot recommen
