Serenity is a movie spawned by the cancelled Fox series Firefly. Both are directed by Joss Whedon, the man behind Buffy the Vampire Slayer. I didn’t watch either TV series. I avoided the original run of Firefly because I generally hate all cowboys, space or otherwise. I did catch a few episode reruns before seeing this film though. This movie stands by itself and is a decent sci-fi action film compared to recent offerings. I did have some issues with it. It didn’t give me some burning desire to resurrect the series. I felt that I could identify a Joss Whedon joke by the end of film and would probably be pretty tired of them half way through a second movie.
