    As challenging as it must have been to pilot Joss Whedon's space opera from the TV junk pile to the big screen, the finished product is a triumph. show more

    Although Mal is ostensibly the movie's hero, and River its heroine, Whedon does a good job of giving all onboard their own story arc, their tragedies and triumphs.

    Loved it, Still can\'t understand why FireFly was cancelled. Well casted, they worked so well together. Would love to see Gina Torres as \" Wonder Woman\". Nathan Fillion is the best.
