This smart, action-packed adventure takes you on an edge-of-your-seat journey loaded with explosive battles, gripping special effects and fantastic new worlds!
A mix of space western, comedy, and drama, the film follows captain Malcolm Mal Reynolds (Nathan Fillion) and his ragtag crew as they trade their way around the edges of civilized society. Of particular interest are two passengers they take on, Simon and River Tam (Sean Maher, Summer Glau), a brother and his telepathic sister on the run from the corrupt governing Alliance. As notorious former members of the anti-Alliance opposition, Mal and his crew make it difficult for Simon and River to stay hidden. Everything goes completely awry when a government assassin is sent to retrieve River.
As Mal is forced to choose between his close-knit crew and the brother and sister newcomers, it becomes apparent that River harbors both a dangerous secret and astounding fighting powers, and Mal decides that discovering the truth about what she knows might just be worth his time. In addition to the stellar stunts, realistic graphics, and an often haunting score, the film's actors display a rare chemistry that brings viewers both into their lives and into a possible version of humanity's future.
This mesmerizing look into the breathtakingly original universe includes 'A filmmaker's journey', exclusive extra content not available on the US DVD, which looks at Joss Whedon's journey from script to screen. The DVD also includes, deleted scenes; 'Re-lighting the Firefly' - the story of a cancelled TV series becoming a major film and outtakes.
