Plot Summary

A passenger with a deadly secret. Six rebels on the run. An assassin in pursuit. When the renegade crew of Serenity agrees to hide a fugitive on their ship, they find themselves in an action-packed battle between the relentless military might of a totalitarian regime who will destroy anything - or anyone - to get the girl back and the bloodthirsty creatures who roam the uncharted areas of space. But, the greatest danger of all may be on their ship. From the mind of Joss Whedon (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel) comes a new edge-of-your-seat adventure loaded with explosive battles, gripping special effects and fantastic new worlds!

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Whedon knows that he's blazing down a well-worn trail, but he addresses that by deftly adding elements of humor, action, romance and horror and continually confounding audience expectations. – Kevin Crust, Los Angeles Times, Sep 20, 2007

Fresh: This genre picture is still a thrillingly original science fiction creation. – Peter Hartlaub, San Francisco Chronicle, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: As always, Whedon's sci-fi fantasies smartly parallel the serious issues we're grappling with here on Earth, while his protagonists remain mordantly funny in the face of utter disaster. – Elizabeth Weitzman, New York Daily News, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: Serenity is so like TV that it ought to come with a clicker so we can switch over to the next movie at the multiplex. – Kyle Smith, New York Post, Jun 24, 2010

Among the best sci-fi ever!

Just a little warning: You better watch the series Firefly before watching this movie, because you might have a difficult time following the psychology of the characters, especially that of Malcom Reynolds. I saw the movie before watching the series myself. It is a shame this show has been cancelled. It is a blessing they could do movie out of it.

Excellent movie but see the series first

This is an amazing movie that wraps up the series "Firefly". It is a lot more relevant and makes more sense if you watch the series first. It is still a good movie even if you don't see the series first.

Ne pas oublier Firefly

SVP si vous n'avez pas vu Firefly (série télévisée) SVP regardez la et ensuite vous revisionnez Serenity.... c'est tellement meilleur :)
