I'm glad Joss Whedon and the original fans of this series fought to make this movie... it provided much better closure than the series was given... and packed a few extra surprises as well. Liked it... would have rather had a longer series run though.

A good finale for the series, but certainly not all the series could've been had it continued. The conspiracy and intrigue are dumbed down significantly so they can be summed in a compact two-hour action movie. The whole plot with River and her connection with Miranda and the Reavers--I mean, really, not only was it illogical in light of the series, but disappointing. Nevertheless It works, just not as great as it could've had they had more than two hours to really build something.

I was glad to see the show take some risks with this film, to see it in the glory that only a big budget could provide, and to see these wonderful characters one last time. I only wish it hadn't been the end.

What is it? It's a science fiction western that is the endnote to a cancelled television series called "Firefly." Goofy fun, lots of action, bad guys a plenty. Watch the 14 TV episodes first and then watch this.

While it would help to watch the tv series Firefly first to get a handle on the characters and the universe that they live in, this movie can be watched as an outstanding standalone feature. It has fantastic villains and heroes, great action, and superb storyline.
And, if you followed the t.v. series this does provide answers that were left hanging.
Wonderful acting, lots of action - cowboys in space, too much fun :)

This is a action-packed movie with a awesome actor called Nathan Fillion.
Nathan is also staring in a abc series called Castle. Which is epic.
Nathan Fillion is a Natural, Funny,
Actor that leads to success. So, I can guarentee you that you'll enjoy this movie! ^_^

A pretty good sci fi action film. I never watched the tv series and found this to be pretty good. The fight against the Alliance has some interesting sub text for current society (we seem to value conformity a bit and the Alliance could be the extreme we get to if we keep going down the same path)
