Beloved television cult director Joss Whedon ('Buffy The Vampire Slayer', 'Angel') makes a spectacular first foray onto the big screen with 'Serenity', the cinematic adaptation of his wildly popular but short-lived sci-fi series, 'Firefly'. A mix of space western, comedy, and drama, 'Serenity' follows captain Malcolm Mal Reynolds (Nathan Fillion) and his ragtag crew as they trade their way around the edges of civilised society. Of particular interest are two passengers they take on, Simon and River Tam (Sean Maher, Summer Glau), a brother and his telepathic sister on the run from the corrupt governing Alliance. As notorious former members of the anti-Alliance opposition, Mal and his crew make it difficult for Simon and River to stay hidden. Everything goes completely awry when a government assassin is sent to retrieve River. As Mal is forced to choose between his close-knit crew and the brother and sister newcomers, it becomes apparent that River harbours both a dangerous secret and astounding fighting powers, and Mal decides that discovering the truth about what she knows might just be worth his time.
Many of the film's action sequences revolve around Summer Glau's martial arts skills in her portrayal of River. Glau prepared for her role with Hong Kong stuntwoman Ming Lu, as well as stunt coordinators Chad Stahelski and Hiro Koda, and as a resulted performed nearly all the stunt work herself. In addition to the stellar stunts, realistic graphics, and an often haunting score, the film's actors display a rare chemistry that brings viewers both into their lives and into a possible version of humanity's future.

Serenity is a brilliant film that's made even better in Blu-ray.
Serenity is great but watch the Firefly series first. It's the best TV Series ever and everyone who has seen it loves it. My wife loved it too.
This movie is huge, especially for a die hard Firefly fan. The video quality is excellent, much better than the Firefly TV Series itself on Blu-Ray and it closes 80% of the big unanswered question. A must have for all Firefly fans out there.
The video results of this Blu-ray are quite impressive, although the majority of this movie is set in rather dark areas, but the colour levels and details are spot on, especially when we're talking shadows. In outdoor areas, the lighting and colours are well saturated, just superb. If you're looking for an impressive movie, providing you with exactly what Blu-ray has to offer, then buy this, this is is Blu-ray at its best.
