Rated PG-13 119 minutes 2005

For those unfamiliar with the story line of this movie, spawned from Joss Whedon's failed Fox TV series Firefly, it takes place 500 years in the future, sometime after a sort of civil war that pit Earth's Alliance against folks who didn't take kindly to being ruled and regulated. Among the rebels is a cowpoke named Malcolm "Mal" Reynolds (Nathan Fillion) -- the bastard son of Indiana Jones, Captain Kirk, Robert Conrad's Jim West, and Rowdy Yates -- and a crew right out of every western ever made. Their mission is to protect a young woman whose mind's been tinkered with by the Alliance, which wants back this powerful prophet with the ability to see the future and destroy all comers. The sole addition to the main cast is Dirty Pretty Things' Chiwetel Ejiofor, whose cool presence renders this a classier and more thoughtful affair. Ultimately, though, he's just a guest onboard this party ship, which is just as well. Who needs brains when there's a bullet left in the chamber?
