When I saw this film I questioned what the hell I just saw, Its a mess of over the top bastards with guns shooting around everywhere - lesbian snipers, creppy puns and agents - and lets not forget ari gold from entorage (piven) getting drugged up and eing a bloody magician that everyone wants dead.
But in the end it ust becomes, lets throw as muh cool shit in as we can - even if the director pulls it off with great style.
There is very little I can say about this film, It changes the firefly tv show into something very differnt yet almost just as brilliant. The entire thing is great, acting, directing writing. Its whedon at his best - I do question if the film would have the same effec on sonebody who had not seen the tv show (everyone).
But then theres the end, which being the closing of the story does not give me a sense of serenity. A high on action, fast paced film like this tries to end morosley and slowly. And yet only succeeds witht he latter. I will not spoil it but 2 characters may sightly die and it may be very poorly handled with no emotion or closure.
In fact I ried at the end, half of the reason was because they killed my favourite character - the other half because they did it for absoloutly no reason apart from the fat that joss whedon was bored and also ecause of how little eotion there was in it. A dissapoitning end really, to a film that really is one long ending...doesnt that make it redundant?
No because it is also one of the best sci-fi film ever made and has had a great influence on films such as star strek and star wars witch really - should be inspiring it.
