Its basic premise as a thriller barely works, as the shoddy pacing, editing, and character development manage to rob any potential for suspense.

A rewarding film for those patient enough to immerse themselves in it.

[T]he movie gives away all of its deeper ambitions, leaving audiences to deconstruct its logical flaws and the outright absurdity in which it plays out.

The movie can't figure out what it wants to be. Is it a nautical noir like "The Lady from Shanghai?" A high-seas adventure like "Moby Dick?" Or a "Lost" island fantasy? Knight just followed "Locke" with Locke, only this time there's no moving the island.

Serenity's noble attempt at baffling us cinematically might be too much style over substance for most.

The concept execution is like watching someone slip with its own vomit and fall down the stairs in a hilarious way. [Full review in Spanish]

A fascinatingly disastrous big swing.

Serenity is a bad noir effort that wastes all the great names attached to it.
September 17, 2019
It's sort of intriguingly bad... [But] it's worth seeing -- the cast is terrific.
August 7, 2019
Bad in a special way.

The paradigm-shifting twist buried in Serenity's saggy second act is certainly a shock, but whether or not it counts as an unavoidable conclusion depends on your personal level of masochism.

Serenity contains a narrative triple somersault that justifies the previously dissuasive elements - an idea that transfers this exercise in neo-noir to a completely different genre. [Full Review in Spanish]

This is wonderful nonsense. [Full review in Spanish]
July 2, 2019
There is a very interesting idea in Serenity's background, but it requires a high suspension of disbelief. [Full review in Spanish]

more codswallop than cosmic

Steven Knight's film triggers agitation, frustration and exasperation. Matthew McConaughey does channel his inner-Tommy Wiseau in two scenes, so there's that...
May 23, 2019
The plot, already extremely overdone and unoriginal, felt super forced and unrealistic.
May 21, 2019
Serenity is a film that seems to reject understanding or even reality.
