The twist itself particularly original. The way it's used, though, is rather ingenious.

A hilariously terrible noir-cum-brainteaser from Steven Knight, starring Matthew McConaughey's bottom.

The final nail in the McConaissance coffin.

Unfortunately, that destination was a disappointment. But that's not to say that I didn't largely enjoy the ride provided by writer-director Steven Knight.

If you like seeing authentically unusual movies, then ignore the haters: In its fusion of disparate genres, its sentimentality, and its weirdness, Serenity is actually worth watching.

"Serenity" is, instead, full of ludicrous trivializations that bypass the story's troubling implications.

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]

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...

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.
May 18, 2019
Serenity is either incredibly brilliant or monumentally terrible. I'm not sure which.
April 29, 2019
A pretty good idea. A lame execution. Serenity/i> goes all the way with its far-fetched story, but fails to deliver a good cinematic experience. [Full review in Spanish].
March 21, 2019
A crackpot suspense film about a fishing boat captain who veers into perilous existential waters, Serenity tries to pull off a "bait-and-switch" times two. But will anyone take the bait either time?
March 18, 2019
With all of this foolishness going on...Serenity is a real stinker. There are lines of dialogue here that beggar belief, they are so lame.
March 16, 2019
At one point the actors are really trying to give, and it was clear that the movie wasn't giving back.
