Serenity is the movie version of the very popular, but short lived, tv show Firefly. It has all the original cast and characters as the TV show so there is no disapointment there. It has Nathan Fillion as Mal, Gina Torres as Zoe, Alan Tudyk as Wash, Morena Baccarin as Inara, Adam Baldwin as Jayne, Jewel Staite as Kaylee, Sean Maher as Simon, Summer Glau as River, and Ron Glass as Shepard.
The movie starts out with something that was never shown in the TV show, exactly how Simon rescued River from the Alliance research facility. From there you meet the main villain know as The Operative who is tasked with capturing the fugitives at all costs. This brings the crew of the Serenity into a world of trouble that they aren't inclined to run away from and end up stumbling into a huge government cover-up.
The movie captures all the class and charm that the TV show had, as well as all the great humor and serious moments all clashed into one. I think that only thing I disliked about the movie is that it brings to an end any chance of a revival of the classic show.
If your a fan of the show and haven't seen it yet then you should be ashamed of yourself. If you never heard of the show, but are still a fan of sci-fi then you should still pick this up. I only rated it Epic because there wasn't a higher rating!
