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.

An amiable B-level spinoff of a cult sci-fi series whose reach clearly exceeds its grasp.

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

Serenity is so like TV that it ought to come with a clicker so we can switch over to the next movie at the multiplex.

Though diehard fans probably will take issue, Serenity is mostly sci-fi silliness attempting to be something more substantive.

If you're familiar with the "Firefly" characters, you'll enjoy the episodic action far more than those who aren't.

It's a cult-film venture, with its own built-in geek fan base.

Whedon figures, probably correctly, that fans of "Firefly" don't need detailed introductions to the regular characters. The rest of us do.

The action sequences, it must be said, are intense, and the film is fun, if you can swallow all the hokum.

A television-sized adventure populated by thinly constructed sidekicks and a hero suffering from Han Solo envy.

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

TV's sci-fi Firefly goes down in flames, despite the return of the original cast and Whedon's retro-arcane dialogue.
