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 that 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 (The Avengers, Firefly) comes an edge-of-your-seat adventure loaded with explosive battles, gripping special effects and fantastic new worlds!

I STRONGLY RECOMMEND WATCHING THE SHOW BEFORE THE MOVIE.
You don't NEED to, but it makes it better. It is, however, a good, fun space western that stands on its own with the sparkling dialogue you have come to expect from Whedon, and the solid performances you have come to expect from the crew.
If I had a nitpic, other than 2 hours is not a great substitute for several more seasons of the show, it's that the effects, though better than the Show, are not a lot better. But, they still work.
That said, Serenity is a satisfactory conclusion to a tragically short series. It doesn't tie up all lose ends, but it does address quite a few while sticking with the winning combination of character-driven storylines, memorable characters and dialog, Western gritty ruggedness, space opera grandeur and gorgeous visuals that won over so many "Browncoats" (Firefly fans).
I've been a Trek fan, a Star Wars fan, Lord of the Rings and so and so on . . . The series was fantastic as I was able to watch it in its proper order. I loved the way the characters were developed and how the captain was always true to what he believed in. Just trying to survive on the edge of the galaxies and being loyal and true no matter what the cost might be. The series had its share of comedy which made for an entertaining and exciting program. Not too much CG, just enough to enhance the show. Pure entertainment with a political message mixed in, one we should all be aware of. Be true to yourself and loyal to your family, whatever family that might be. This series would still fly today and I think it would do well because it's not just the normal bang, bang, shoot em up that most adventure series are. The human element will always be interesting no matter how much the world tries to de-humanize us. We were designed that that should be so. I found it interesting that Josh would explore Christianity in a series such as this, but he did and he showed all sides and it worked. As I would hope, most people embraced God in this futuristic escapade. Some didn't and that wasn't the focal point. Sci-fi tends to push God away, but the writers made a place for love and feelings and anger and loyalty, all of the things we are.
Great show and movie, great writing. Glad I was able to see it.
The series was excellent, and this movie is also excellent. Joss Whedon is a very talented writer, director and visionary. All the actors are so good at portraying their characters you don't see the actors, you only see the characters. They really make the series and the movie outstanding.
If I saw Joss Whedon in a bar, the first question I would ask him is "Why didn't you find another way to continue this great series and movie series!!"
It should have never aired on the Faux Network.
