From Whedon's script, "Serenity" is based on the director's ill-fated, 2002 Fox television show, "Firefly." If, like me, you never saw an episode, be prepared for an anything-goes thrill ride here....a movie that becomes impressively intense as it veers toward an ending whose climax isn't telegraphed. There are genuine surprises here, particularly at the end, which gives this swift movie a formidable kick.
So now I know that I can recommend this movie without reservation to folks who never saw Firefly. It will doubtless be a fine double feature with Wallace and Gromit.
