This movie is yet another piece of art crafted by Joss Whedon, creator of Firefly, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and the past few Avengers movies. While a science fiction novel, this film questions the bounds of society and human behavior, even further than the beloved Star Trek franchise has offered. While highly reviewed by IMDb: 8/10 and Rotten Tomatoes: 82%, Serenity was not popular with the mainstream audience, Serenity has captured the hearts of the cult following of Firefly, the show Serenity sequels, that pushed for its making.
Starring the main cast of Firefly and some favorite extras, Serenity ties up the story in a hasty abridged cancellation of Firefly by the demon that is Fox Entertainment. Not only did it destine the show to failure by absurdly airing the show out of order, the president of Fox coldly claimed the cancellation of the cult classic was a shame. Baloney!
In a riveting story unveiling the history of the creation of the reavers, the main, evil, cannibalistic group in Firefly, Joss Whedon gives his die-hard fans a satisfactory ending to yet another successful franchise.
