"They aim to misbehave and they do it so well"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Well it been 5 years since this was released and around 8 since the TV Show “Firefly” was shown here. But this movie still amazes me (this will be the Third time I have brought this movie, Twice On DVD and this Blue ray. I have seen the HD-DVD version as well). They have slightly improved the Experience each time they make a new release.

The Movie

Serenity races by at a quick 119-minutes of non-stop action, suspense and, as is typical with Joss Whedon, a great sense of fun and humour. The chemistry between the cast members is still there and the writing is excellent. Newcomers will not be lost with the plot and fans of Firefly will feel like the series never left. It is not a Directors Cut so there is nothing new, but that's fine for me. If you didn't like the first time, sorry there is nothing here to change your mind.


A fine transfer here with Serenity seeing a 1080P VC-1 encode and a 2.35:1 framed aspect ratio. It must been hard job to do when the movie jumps from the black of space, to bright colours of clothing. Details are stunning. On a good size TV you can see every detail. Chapter 5 The Reavers Chase will be a good test scene for me in the future


Serenity is presented on 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio. If you can use this option it is simply amazing. Techincally better than the audio on the HD-DVD

Serenity will tick off your neighbours, impress your friends and scare the living hell out of the cat. Highly recommended!

What's different between the DVD and HD-DVD Content Wise?

Kicking off these new features is a visual commentary with Joss Whedon and members of the cast. This is, in reality, the same audio commentary as found on the DVD and HD DVD release, albeit now presented visually. The standalone audio only track can also be accessed from the special features menu. Also new are BD-Live enabled features, which I haven't tried yet. A Picture-in-Picture track presents a behind-the-scenes look at the movie, with everything from rehearsals to interviews, some of which is taken from the standalone features included on the disc. The “Mr. Universe Compendium” is basically a trivia track that plays throughout the movie, but with added visual aids. Of more interest is the “Digital Tour of the Serenity,” which opens an additional window with information and graphics related directly to the ship.

The rest of the special Features are the Same as the 2 DVD collectors edition.

The Bloopers are still Brilliant.


If you have the HD DVD version or the Special edition DVD then it might be fine to skip the Blu-ray as you got most what on this version

If you are a Fan, Hi Def nut or haven't got this in your collection then grab it as soon as possible. You won't be disappointed

"One of the few series that gets a finale"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Epitaph to one of the greatest recent series, Firefly. Cancelled after its first series, through fan uproar they were able to get enough interest to wrap things up in a movie project. essential for any fans.

"Greatest Sci Fi Action Comedy ever!!"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Probably one of my most favourite Sci Fi films. Great on its own, though watching “Firefly” first will give you a better experiance for the film. DJ

They aim to misbehave…

Serenity is the feature-length adaptation of Joss Whedon’s cult TV show, Firefly, about a band of galactic outcasts 500 years in the future.

The story centres on Captain Malcolm “Mal” Reynolds (Nathan Fillion), a hardened veteran (on the losing side) of a galactic civil war, who now ekes out a living pulling off small crimes and transport-for-hire aboard his ship, Serenity. He leads a small, eclectic crew who are the closest thing he has left to family - squabbling, insubordinate and undyingly loyal.

When Mal takes on two new passengers - a young doctor and his unstable telepathic sister - he gets much more than he bargained for. The pair are fugitives from the coalition dominating the universe who will stop at nothing to reclaim the girl.

The crew that was once used to skimming the outskirts of the galaxy unnoticed find themselves caught between the unstoppable military force of the Universal Alliance and the horrific cannibalistic fury of the Reavers, savages who roam the very edge of space. Hunted by vastly different enemies, they begin to discover the greatest danger to them may be on board Serenity herself.
