Beautifully played action adventure
4 March 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Serenity is a tale that I fully recommend to everyone who is intrigued with adventure, loyalty, action and romance. The movie exhibits grace, realism, some romance but also a sense for the search of truth and the human element of compassion for others. Each of the individual actors plays his or her part extremely well, and you can clearly sense that they really want to act their part and want to be in that make believe fantasy world; every single one of them is a true star; it is seldom to see such real acting and it puzzles me why these actors have never been more on the forefront of the cinema screen. The part of the secret operative sent to eliminate River, the girl searched for by the empire and gifted with psychic abilities, is played very well; his melancholic and somewhat sad nature contrasts beautifully with the never giving up captain of the Serenity crew, who even after having almost lost all his people in the war with the empire and is thoroughly disappointed with the world and himself, still manages to find plenty of courage to come to the rescue of River and her brother. This element of compassion is a very strong theme in the movie and is the guiding principle from the beginning to the end. Even the slightly worn out idea of saving the universe from the manipulation of a degraded empire, still does it extremely well in this beautifully made movie.
