Serenity - Movie Synopsis & Plot

Joss Whedon—the Oscar-and Emmy-nominated writer/director responsible for the worldwide television phenomena of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel—now applies his trademark compassion and wit to a small band of galactic outcasts 500 years in the future in his feature film directorial debut, Serenity.

The films centers around Captain Malcolm Reynolds, a hardened veteran (on the losing side) of a galactic civil war, who now ekes out a living pulling off small crimes and transport-for-hire abroad his ship, Serenity. He leads a small, eclectic crew who are the closest thing he has left to family- squabbling, insubordinate and undyingly loyal.

When Mal takes on two new passengers—a young doctor and his unstable, telepathic sister—he gets much more than he bargained for. The pair are fugitives from the coalition dominating the universe, who will stop at nothing to reclaim the girl. The crew that was once used to skimming the outskirts of the galaxy unnoticed find themselves caught between the unstoppable military force of the Universal Alliance and the horrific, cannibalistic fury of the Reavers, savages who roam the very edge of space. Haunted by vastly different enemies, they begin to discover that the greatest danger to them may be on board Serenity herself.

MOVIE REVIEW

Based on the popular and very short lived T.V show Firefly (maybe it wasn't that popular) comes Serenity, the new film by the acclaimed director of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Joss Whedon. Complete with the same cast from the show and some impressive special effects, this is one of the most entertaining movies of the year. Given that the show was only around for one season, my expectations for this film were not that high. The cast is relatively unknown, the director's resume does not blow me away, but luckily it didn't show at all. Whedon has made a smart, sci-fi western hybrid, which should hold some great sequel potential (as I'm sure the producers already know).
