Epic sci-fi adventure from writer-director Joss Whedon, based on his short-lived television series 'Firefly'. 500 years in the future, after a galactic civil war has united all the space colonies under the repressive Alliance, former rebel soldier Malcolm Reynolds (Nathan Fillion) captains the Firefly class cargo ship 'Serenity', taking on odd jobs and scoring heists where he can to keep his ship and his crew in the air, all the while trying to avoid the attentions of the authorities. When he picks up Simon Tam (Sean Maher) and his disturbed sister River (Summer Glau), Mal ends up with more trouble than he could have bargained for. On the run from the Alliance, River has been the subject of horrific government experiments to develope her latent psychic powers. Determined to get her back, the Alliance dispatches ruthless assassin The Operative (Chiwetel Ejiofor), and Mal and his crew find themselves hunted throughout the galaxy. But when they discover an even darker secret the Alliance would like to keep hidden, they finally have their chance to hit back.

Serenity (Blu-Ray)Ben Grant
Quite simply this film is amazing, it is a follow on from the 'firefly' TV series, but is still strong enough to be a standalone movie. If you are a fan of Joss Whedon (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, Dollhouse) you will love the blend of humour bought to this high octane sci-fi adventure.
The characters are amazing and performances are sublime. The film is held together by Nathan Fillion (White Noise 2, Dr. Horrible's Singalong Blog) who plays Captain Mal Reynolds, the father figure to the crew, who will stop at no end to protect his crew, his character and performance are a particular highlight and you can't help but love the mixture of badass who can also make you laugh.
I would comfortably give this film 10/10 it is a great watch for any sci-fi, action, adventure genre enthusiasts. But also a great film to watch with friends. If you have never heard of it, well worth a watch.
