Serenity (2005) – A Hall of Fame Quick Capsule Review
Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
One of the best sci-fi films in recent memory, Serenity (based on the superb but brief TV show Firefly) is an action packed, superbly crafted ride that delivers you so much more than blockbusters with 3 times the budget. It’s also not afraid to throw in a few surprises… not least killing one of the casts most loved characters. Almost 15 years on it holds up surprisingly well. In short I adore this world and we are all worse off that we’ve never been back. As Mal would say… Shiny!
