DVD Review: Serenity

Thank the heavens, finally a good Science Fiction movie. Star Wars has single handedly ruined the genre in my opinion, but this little adventure from the cast and crew of TV's cancelled Firefly breath new life into it. The crew of Serenity are still fighting and hiding from the Alliance and an assassin is hot on their trail. He wants to get to River, the human cargo that's been on the Serenity, she's carrying some important information. Soon, the crew finds out just how dangerous River can be but they need to keep her from the Alliance. Action, adventure, humor and jaw dropping effects combine to make an astounding film. We also find out how the Reavers came to be. The TV show was boring, but the movie rocks! I hope Joss Whedon keeps it up. This could be the next great sci-fi franchise. ****1/2 out of *****.
