Consensus: Snappy dialogue and goofy characters make this Wild Wild West soap opera in space fun and adventurous.

Andrea Gronvall
Chicago Reader

Joss Whedon makes a rousing feature-directing debut, exploiting the cult status of his short-lived series Firefly to continue it on the big screen.

It has a great sense of humor about it, an attractive cast and it's just a lot of fun.

After suffering through a summer crammed with TV shows being remade into movies, it's refreshing to see a movie based on a TV show that is so entertaining that it actually makes you want to go and see the show of which the movie was created.

The settings and tone are hyper-real, yet the human behaviour is grounded and credible, the moral conflicts complex and involving. Shiny, intelligent fun.

Taut, immersive, and alternately hilarious and heartbreaking, a well-balanced blend of whooping Wild West action and space opera.

New viewers will be a little bit lost, and old fans won't get quite everything they wanted, but there's enough going on in Serenity and it's all so much fun that it doesn't matter.

Go out and see Joss Whedon's witty whizbang of an action movie, or we will kill a kitten.

Serenity isn't about effects. It's about narrative and characters, and it does a solid job in both areas.

In the end you are left with the feeling that Whedon works better on television than in the cinema.

Serenity is the work of an auteur. It's hard to call Joss Whedon that since he primarily works in fantasy, horror, and sci-fi (apparently only Godard,… More
