SERENITY

119 MINUTES | The Internet has been buzzing for months about the nerdy joys of this big-screen adaptation of cult writer/director Joss Whedonís short-lived TV series Firefly, and damn if the geeks arenít right. Set in a future where Earth is a distant memory and the universe is governed by the ominous-sounding Alliance, a group of petty thieves find themselves the target of a government hitman when they pick up a young psychic and her brother. Thatís a bit high-concept for a TV show, which could be one reason it failed, but on the big screen it works, as does Whedonís idiosyncratic sense of humor. The entire cast from the series appears in the film, and at least a few seem poised for breakout status, especially Nathan Fillion as the tortured shipís captain and Summer Glau as the psychic River. The word on the Net is that if this film is a big enough hit, there may be a sequel. Letís hope the geeks are right again.
