Quotes

[first lines]
Teacher: Earth that was could no longer sustain our numbers, we were so many. We found a new solar system, dozens of planets and hundreds of moons. Each one terraformed, a process taking decades, to support human life, to be new Earths. The Central Planets formed the Alliance.

Crazy Credits

The film content begins seamlessly from the Universal logo. After the 'Universal' title appears over the earth icon, the earth image becomes more realistic, and then the word 'Universal' is moved away to reveal the earth devastated from overpopulation, with spacecraft departing, as the first 'regular' shot of the film.

a must-see for sci-fi fans
27 June 2006 | by facederaggoutSee all my reviews

First off, I want to say that I loved this movie. It's got intense action sequences, a good plot,some humor, likable characters, fantastic special effects, hardly ever a dull moment,and oh yeah... it's a total babe-fest!!! I must confess I'm new to the whole Firefly universe.I don't watch much TV so I'd never even heard of the TV show. So until watched this DVD, to me,Firefly was nothing but a dumpy little American made car. I rented this movie with no expectations whatsoever; maybe that's the reason I enjoyed this movie so much. I can't speak for the fans of the series, but if you enjoy well-made sci-fi, then you'll love this cool little movie.
