5.0 out of 5 stars Surpasses my fave sci-fi flick of all time..., 27 Feb. 2006

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Serenity [DVD] [2005] (DVD)
I was lucky to see Serenity. It took me forever to go see it at the cinema and when I did, the complex was evacuated thanks to a fire alarm as soon as I stepped inside! I thought I wasn't destined to see this flick but the next night I spent more money getting to the cinema - I just hoped it was worth it... and it was!
Firstly, I don't like westerns. Hate them in fact, so I was already dubious. Also, I already knew it was based on a show that was cancelled very early on so my hopes weren't high at all. But when I left the cinema I had just witnessed the greatest sci-fi flick I'd ever seen, even surpassing my beloved Star Wars. It's THAT good!
Joss Wheddon deserves praise for bringing so many characters to life in a way that makes you care about what happens to them. At the end when River "does her thing" I was literally rubbing my hands in glee because I truly thought all hope was lost.
This is a sad film and tugs on the heart strings from time to time. People die. Worlds get crushed. Hope fades. This is very dark in places which is exactly what Episode III needed and failed to pull off, especially next to this.
I shall be ordering Firefly in great haste and if it's anything like this film, I shall be DEMANDING it be reinstated for a new season.
WATCH THIS FILM AND LOVE IT.
