The Guardian

For Firefly fanatics, this is a phoenix job, a $40m movie rising from the ashes of a cancelled TV series. For the rest of us, it’s just another sci-fi action movie with a cheesy script, variable acting and only the odd touch of class.

This is surprising, as it is from Joss Whedon, creator/writer of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Whedon directs as well as writing, and includes a frail-looking kung fu-kicking heroine, but there’s little of Buffy’s originality and wit.

Article continues It plays more like a Dark Angel episode in space with a few bits grafted on from The Matrix, Minority Report and Star Wars.
