FireflyFirefly - "Serenity" Movie - Chud.com Review

Devin says: It’s the future. You can tell because every is dressed like cowboys yet fly spaceships. And they all curse in Chinese. It’s the world of Joss Whedon’s failed sci-fi show, Firefly, miraculously resurrected by Universal in film form. The movie takes up where the series left off, as the outlaw crew of the Firefly, headed by Captain Mal Reynolds, are chased for a mysterious young girl named River. Who’s chasing them? The mysterious Operative, played by Four Brothers’ baddie Chiwetel Ejiofor.
Prognostication: Here come the hate mail! Look, I think I may enjoy this film (even though I’m not a huge Firefly fan), but everything I have ever seen in the world of Hollywood tells me this movie won’t do well at the box office. And hey, if the movie is good, who cares? Well, anyone who wants the hinted-at trilogy, for one. And anyone who - like me - wants to see Nathan Fillion get more work.
