Según Scifibrain.com Serenity es la mejor película de ciencia ficción de 2005:
Joss Whedon does it once again, and thanks to all the fans who spent so much time trying to revive the ‘canceled before its time’ television series, sci-fi fans got one heck of a movie. Serenity kept the charm and feel of the television series, but blew it up to twice its size and slapped it onto theaters across the country. Fans were disappointed that more people didn’t turn out to watch the movie, but that isn’t any fault of the movie, since it was easily the best sci-fi film of the year. One of the first sci-fi adventure/action films to blend drama and comedy so well in quite some time, Serenity is one of those films you can watch again and again, and is one that should not be missed.
Y, evidentemente, Joss Whedon el mejor director:
You can’t really have a Best Film without a Best Director, so it is only natural that Joss Whedon – directing his first movie – wins the award for Best Director. With all the characters and plot going on in Serenity, it would’ve been easy for a director to come in and make a mess out of it all, but Joss knew exactly what to do with the script he wrote. The movie is filled with memorable shots such as River framed by a burning swing, that you can’t help but hope Joss Whedon gets to direct another film very, very soon. Hopefully, another Serenity film at that.
