Hang on, let me give some space for people who preview the thread contents.
A bit more…
Okay, it was great. It was exactly what I wanted in a Firefly movie and I think it will work for people who have not seen the show. It had the action, it had sparkling writing and dialog, it had a plot worth watching, and it had some closure for people who are already fans. If this was what every continuation of a cancelled science fiction series could be I would demand that they bring more back.
BTW, at the screening in Miami Gina Torres (Zoe) was there initially (and then left as the film was starting so I suspect that they are flying everyone to as many screenings as possible). Anyone at other locations want to comment on who showed up for theirs?
