Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_1'); })After Firefly was cancelled partway through its first season, a massive letter writing campaign was launched to bring it back. Years later, The Movie was released to provide closure to some of the unanswered questions of the show and accompany the comic series and other Expanded Universe materials.Shortly after the end of the series, the crew of the Firefly-class ship Serenity is still getting into trouble. The presence of Ill Girl and government experiment River Tam has brought the fist of The Alliance down on her, Captain Malcolm Reynolds, River's brother Simon, Kaylee, Zoe, Wash, Jayne, Shepherd Book, and Inara.More details are brought to light about the experiments that were done on River by the government and the Alliance conspiracy that she learned by accident through her powers, driving her insane. Pursued by a ruthless and devoted Government Operative, the crew seek to solve the mystery surrounding River Tam and the Alliance that has caused them so much misery, and perhaps use it to get out from under the thumb of the Alliance once and for all.Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_2'); })Not to be confused with the 2019 movie of the same name, starring Matthew McConaughey and Anne Hathaway.

Anyone Can Die: Two major characters whom the audience know and love die in the movie. Book and Wash. According to the commentary, this is precisely why those two died, to heighten tension and make that final fight scene, in which nearly everyone else is hurt, all the more scary.

comment
Instant-Win Condition: The Operative's mission is to eliminate River Tam before any of the big state secrets she has in her mind can be let out. He's willing to kill huge numbers of people, the protagonists included, to pursue this mission. Once the broadcast of the 'Pax' report goes out, that mission is a failure, so he has his men stand down, as the damage is done, and killing Mal and the others is no longer "necessary" to him.

Break the Badass
 Serenity / int_18262b13
comment
Break the Badass: The fact that Jayne Cobb is the most comfortable with gore and violence makes it all the more significant when he is the one to demand the transmission of the Reavers messily killing the scientist be turned off. Jayne's fear of the Reavers in general seems to evoke this trope. When the Reaver fleet appears out of the Space Cloud in front of the Alliance fleet, it is the Operative—stoic, nerveless mass-murderer and Knight Templar—who reacts with terror and desperation. (Although at least he acts: everybody else is too stunned to do anything.)

Gone Horribly Right: The Pax. The drug did work as advertised: people were rendered calm by it, so much so that they neglected their own well-being out of apathy. The Alliance wanted to create an unstoppable psychic spy/assassin in the form of River, and in the process, they got exactly what they wanted—only said psychic spy/assassin turned against them and blew the whole Miranda scandal wide open.

The Heavy: The Operative is a secret government agent who represents the Alliance's interests and carries out their plans to use extreme measures to create a better world. The government elite who give him his orders remain unseen, so he's the closest to an overarching villain in the movie and presents the biggest threat to the heroes.

Everybody's Dead, Dave: When the crew figures out that "Miranda" is a planet, Serenity makes a perilous journey through Reaver territory, to try to find out why Miranda is so important. When they finally land planet-side, they discover the long dead corpses of an entire planet's population. Of course there were once survivors, but they all turned into Reavers. Earlier, after the Operative has been outwitted by the crew of Serenity one more time, he proceeds to have everyone who has ever provided shelter to the crew killed, en masse, including any inconvenient bystanders, even Shepherd Book. This is what pushes Mal into going to Miranda to find out just what the Alliance is trying to hide.

Earth That Was: Humanity has migrated to a large multi-star solar system and Terraformed dozens of planets and moons. Earth appears at the very beginning, showing the colony ships leaving it. "Was" is very appropriate; most of the planet is a sickly shade of brown, and there are several large explosions going off, possibly nuclear. The series is the Trope Namer.

Death of a Child: The Operative is not above killing children, as he flat out informs Mal. As proof of this, when the characters arrive at Haven, Kaylee (the crew's most soft-hearted member) comes across a dead little boy about 10 years old (one whom she was briefly seen interacting with affectionately, earlier in the film). The Operative is aware that this is his Moral Event Horizon, but argues that these deeds are Necessarily Evil.

Shoot the Dog: The Operative describes this as his raison d'etre—his purpose in life, he says, is to create a world where monsters like himself will not be allowed to exist. Mal's choice to disguise Serenity as a Reaver vessel is also treated as a Shoot the Dog—he is desecrating the corpses of their deceased friends and turning their home into an abomination in order to defeat the Alliance.

Facial Dialogue: During the opening robbery, River and Zoe have a short conversation using nothing but facial expressions that goes something like, "That guy has a gun and he's about to pull it." "You sure? He looks like a hick." "Yes, I am sure, now stop him before he moves!" When Inara first sets eyes on the Operative, her previously cheerful expression disappears completely. When Simon mistakenly thinks that River might have multiple personalities, he asks if he is speaking to Miranda now. River's reply is a What an Idiot! glance at her brother.

Analogy Backfire: The Operative compares River to an albatross, recalling The Rime of the Ancient Mariner. Mal, who's actually read it, points out that the albatross brought good luck and even saved the crew, and it was the Mariner killing it that brought doom on the ship.

comment
Ax-Crazy: River at times, though it turns out she has a very good reason for it. She's been conditioned to respond to certain triggers, one apparently being "attack everyone." She also absorbed a number of the Alliance's dirtiest secrets, such as the accidental genocide of 30 million people on Miranda. Knowing that your benevolent government was behind creating the Reavers would be enough to drive anyone crazy, let alone reliving the events leading up to it.

Hidden Depths: You wouldn't count on Mal knowing The Rime of the Ancient Mariner, or River being a death machine. The Alliance didn't expect Simon to instantly adapt his natural brilliance into stealing test subjects right out of top secret labs. And Book... Book knows all about the Alliance, and operatives, and such. His strange expertise is explained in the third of the three comic books, "A Shepherd's Tale."

Gratuitous Foreign Language
 Serenity / int_2fcf9bbc
comment
Gratuitous Foreign Language: The Mandarin-ish and Cantonese-oid phrases scattered through the dialogue, often as family-friendly swearwords. Doubles as a Bilingual Bonus. As the DVD set shows, they use actual Mandarin phrases, although as mentioned above, the pronunciation is so atrocious that even native speakers will have trouble deciphering them, and some of them are absolutely hilarious in English. The trigger phrase that Simon uses to put River to sleep after she clears out the bar is Russian, "Это курам насмех", meaning literally "This is hilarious to chickens", an old Russian saying used to denote something ridiculous. Another Bilingual Bonus for the name of the chemical used on Miranda. Pax is Latin for "Peace".

Ramming Always Works: The Operative's ship gets T-boned by a Reaver ship in the final battle, snapping it in half. The latter ship is significantly larger in addition to its chosen orientation, and the Reavers are crazy enough that they don't necessarily care about the damage to their own vessel.

Apologetic Attacker: River beats up Simon to get to the bridge. Afterward, she explains that she didn't know if he was going to make her sleep, whereupon Simon wryly says, "you could have asked." Simon of course, always forgives his dear little sister. Also the Operative, who apologizes to Mal for killing all the crew's contacts (including an entire settlement with children and noncombatants), acknowledging that it was an evil deed.

Humans Are Flawed: Joss states in the commentary that the point he wanted to make with this film is that while the Seven Deadly Sins are bad, they're also inseparable from human nature. This is demonstrated with Miranda, a world where everyone from whom sin was 'removed' is dead—and those who clung to it are no longer human.

Kick the Dog: After the Serenity crew prevent the Operative from tracking them down twice, he coldly reasons that they have to run somewhere, so he starts destroying every settlement where Malcolm Reynolds is known to have friends or contacts. More chilling than most examples because this is not anger or revenge, just a Scorched Earth strategy.

Crapsaccharine World: On the surface, the Alliance is a highly advanced parliamentary democracy. Start digging deeper and you have oppression and abuse perpetrated in the name of making them better. From relatively minor atrocities like involuntary surgery and brainwashing on children, all the way up to annihilating entire colonies and covering it up to avoid public censure. We know from the series that the free market reigns, with everything from indebted slaves to corporations withholding vital medicines for a profit to terraforming hackjobs apparently performed by the lowest bidders...

Bittersweet Ending: For the film and the series as a whole. The crew exposes the Alliance's crimes and turns the Verse against them, the Operative spares them once he sees that killing them will accomplish nothing, most of the remaining Reavers have been destroyed, Kaylee and Simon get their Relationship Upgrade, and the crew gets to fly off into the sunset. But Book, Wash, Mr. Universe, and whole communities of other good people had to die to make it all happen... and while it's suffered a crippling blow to its good publicity, the Alliance is still active and will probably try to hunt down the crew for vengeance eventually.

Would Hurt a Child: The Operative is not above killing children, as he flat out informs Mal. As proof of this, when the characters arrive at Haven, Kaylee (the crew's most soft-hearted member) comes across a dead little boy about 10 years old (one whom she was briefly seen interacting with affectionately, earlier in the film). The Operative is aware that this is his Moral Event Horizon, but argues these deeds as being Necessarily Evil.

Combat Pragmatist
 Serenity / int_49fb5ccb
comment
Combat Pragmatist: A number of characters are willing to fight dirty. Being a soldier-turned-outlaw smuggler and no longer bound by anything resembling official rules beyond "keep the ship flying", Mal has no qualms with bringing a gun to a proverbial knife (or, in the Operative's case, sword) fight. Mal shoots not one, not two, but three unarmed men over the course of the two hour film. Of course, when put up against an exemplary swordsman and martial artist such as the Operative, fighting dirty (and obfuscating his immunity to a certain attack) is just about the only reason Mal's able to keep up with him. In the same breath, the Operative himself. Every time the man engages in combat, his focus is always on ending the battle quickly, decisively, and with himself unharmed. As a result, he wastes no time, energy, or effort on flashiness, style, or meaningless forms: his fighting style is brutally functional and ruthlessly efficient. As for Jayne? He's always been a fight-loving outlaw. While Mal avoids rules perhaps out of necessity due to the responsibilities placed upon him by his captaincy, Jayne flat-out doesn't care about them. Likewise River, super assasin or not, she cannot hope to outmuscle Jayne. So she squeezes him in the crotch, then hits him there again before grabbing a nearby tray to bash him in the head.

The Hero's Journey
 Serenity / int_4a852053
comment
The Hero's Journey: Oddly, given the not-particularly-heroic nature of the crew, the film follows this pattern remarkably closely. It begins with Mal performing his everyday duties as a low-end crook and bank robber, only for his routine to be disrupted by a literal Call to Adventure; in this case, the signal that activates River. Though Mal initially refuses the Call, he Crosses the Threshold when the Operative murders his friends. With the aid of River's essentially supernatural powers, he descends through a swarm of monsters onto a planet of the dead, fights his way through a Road of Trials (in this case, a fleet of enemy ships) and then faces the Operative in battle before ultimately forcing him to Atone, while River reaches Apotheosis. In the end, the universe and the heroes Return to a new equilibrium.

Emergency Cargo Dump: Discussed Trope. Zoe wonders why Mal refused to let a civilian tag along with them to escape a Reaver attack (Mal subsequently Mercy Killed him), and he says their hovercraft won't carry five. Zoe says they could've dumped the cargo, but Mal says they couldn't afford to fail the job.

Crazy-Prepared: The Operative informs Mal that his ship has locked onto Serenity's pulse beacon and will fire with a single command. Mal responds by handing him that pulse beacon. He also preps six decoys for nav sat tracking, Serenity being signal #7. Inara lights a flashbomb disguised as an incense stick—unbeknownst to Mal or The Operative. The Operative might arguably qualify near the end, bringing in the entire fleet just to deal with one ship. Turned out to be extremely useful when Mal tricked a second fleet into pursuing him.

Humans Are White: For a universe which is heavily Asian inspired and merged completely with Chinese culture, none of the main cast members even have Asian features; Tam is likely a Chinese surname, but Simon and River don't look at all Chinese. Even the colonists, Alliance navy and (from what little one can see) Reavers tend to be mostly Caucasian.

Air-Vent Passageway: Serenity's ducts are large enough, but Mal still must get a wrench and properly remove the duct cover before entering them to get past a locked door. After escaping the space battle in an Escape Pod, the Operative infiltrates Mr. Universe's complex via its air ducts. Played for laughs at the end, when Simon and Kaylee are taking the "unresolved" out of their Unresolved Sexual Tension. They begin removing their clothes, then start kissing, then they fall down out of sight... and the camera pans up to show River watching from an air duct overhead.

Pragmatic Adaptation
 Serenity / int_603f1a80
comment
Pragmatic Adaptation: Although a followup and conclusion to the television series, there are a subtle amount of changes and simplifications made to make the movie more accessible to those who hadn't watched the series and/or to make the film more self-enclosed: The western/19th century clothing/motifs are heavily toned down, the swearing in Chinese is heavily reduced, Inara's profession is never disclosed, and Mal's Sergeant rank in the army is changed to Captain to avoid confusion about why he is called Captain Malcolm Reynolds. In addition, there are some elements of Simon, River, Alliance and possibly the Reavers that appear to be retconned to keep a simpler and more straight-forward narrative. In the show, Simon explicitly hires professionals to rescue River because the Academy knows his face after a failed previous rescue attempt (he may also recognize that he doesn't possess the required skills) as opposed to leading the rescue operation himself, River's insanity is discovered to be due to part of her brain being removed as opposed to possessing a dark secret that needs to be let out, and overall the Alliance in the television show appears to be more "apathetic, corrupt, and decadent" than the "meddlesome do-gooders who believe that Utopia Justifies the Means" you see in the film, which allows for a stronger antagonistic presence for the main characters.

Identical Twin ID Tag: Parodied. Mal can tell the Rample twins apart because "Fanty's prettier", but there is no easy way to spot the distinction between him and Mingo.

Meaningful Name: Combined with a Bilingual Bonus, The Pax. Pax is Latin for Peace. "Miranda" is a character in Shakespeare's The Tempest who famously says "O brave new world that has such people in't" upon seeing people from outside her sheltered island existence; this quote in turn is the inspiration for the title of Aldous Huxley's novel Brave New World, wherein the dystopian totalitarian state uses drugs to pacify the (genetically engineered) people. A complex multi-layered reference.

Artistic License – Military: Appears as a Freeze-Frame Bonus in a scene of the Operative looking up Mal's service record from the War of Independence. Mal's rank in the record is indicated to be captain, which contradicts what viewers of the series know of him (namely, that he was a sergeant in the war and only became a captain after he bought Serenity). This was likely a choice made by executives to prevent confusion from moviegoers who had never watched the series, but that change is what brings this trope into play: an army captain and a naval captain have completely different levels of command authority, being two different grades on the officer's rank ladder.

Color-Coded for Your Convenience: The Alliance wears primarily blue and grey to match all their shiny tech. The Browncoats wear, um, brown, red, yellow, and orange, which goes with the Wild West setting. This symbolizes the Alliance's cold modernism versus the Browncoats' heart. The Tams wear dark blue, perhaps signifying their previous ties to the Alliance. The Reavers wear... heavily stained human skins.

Heroic Safe Mode: Zoe's response to Wash's death. She is in no way paralyzed with fear. Her response when everyone else asks where he is reeks of "must focus on the matter at hand, my emotional state is not important right now." It seems that she is determined almost to the point of suicide during the climactic fight, since she casually walks away from cover straight toward the waves of oncoming Reavers while firing her shotgun. The DVD Commentary says Joss Whedon and Gina Torres, Zoe's actress, argued about it. She felt Zoe would be more angry, and Joss explained that Zoe was suppressing it right up until the aforementioned point.

comment
Psychic Powers: River Tam demonstrates uncontrolled telepathy and empathy. It's theorized by some that her combat prowess may be partly attributable to low-level precognition—seeing seconds into the future to determine an enemy's next move. She also has other abilities, such as an ability to discern health problems and locate dead bodies, find her way through strange environments with no guidance, and locate electronic devices or discern problems with machinery. Interestingly, "The R. Tam Sessions" imply that River already had some form of latent psychic ability before the Academy started working on her.

Fake in the Hole: Seen in the deleted scenes, when Mal and Inara escape from the Operative.

Had it been left in, it'd be an Establishing Character Moment for Mal—cunning, pragmatic, frugal, and ultimately preferring the non-violent path.

Better to Die than Be Killed
 Serenity / int_99298c71
comment
Better to Die than Be Killed: Mal, Jayne and Zoe share this view, at least when it comes to Reavers. When a bystander is captured, Mal shoots him dead before the Reavers can cut into him, an act later described by Zoe as "a piece of mercy". When Jayne looks like he is going to be captured, he asks Mal to do the same to him. The view seems to be universal among anybody who knows about Reavers. Cruelly subverted with the Miranda recording, in which the scientist tries to shoot herself after it becomes clear that she is not going to escape the Reavers. She does not do it quickly enough.

Took a Level in Badass: River. Boy does she ever. She is able to beat Jayne in a mostly fair fight, and later takes on an entire army of reavers by herself. It's shown that Kaylee is able to hold her own in a fight as well, especially when she's properly motivated. Simon as well. Both on a personality level (he is less Fish out of Water and more weary traveller now) and in combat (in the show, he was stated to be such a bad shot that he didn't manage to shoot anybody in the one raid he was part of. Here he takes down a score of Reavers alongside the others)

Continuity Nod: During Mal's Shirtless Scene, you can see the scar where he got stabbed in "The Train Job," and another from Niska's torture device in "War Stories." Speaking of which, the "Mule II" hovercar is the official replacement for the "Mule" ATV that was destroyed in that episode. A subtle nod to "Objects in Space": The barrels ejected from Serenity as they escape the Training House look and function just like the pilot's "Crybaby". The second Reaver ship to appear in the climax is the one from the pilot episode.

Revealing Cover-Up
 Serenity / int_a1b0c1c2
comment
Revealing Cover-Up: The Alliance spends a whole lot of time and effort hunting down River Tam, including murdering just about everybody who may have been in contact with her, in order to cover up what she learned through her telepathy when she was in the same room as several high-ranking Alliance members. River, being insane, probably doesn't understand what she knows and, in any case, isn't in any position to tell anybody even if she does. But the Alliance's campaign of persecution gives Serenity's crew a big motive to find out and make the information public knowledge.

Double-Meaning Title
 Serenity / int_a4905771
comment
Double-Meaning Title: Serenity is (obviously) the name of the spaceship, but the title also alludes to the Alliance's plan to control the people of the 'Verse by using drugs to make them naturally peaceful and docile. Historically, the title refers to the Battle of Serenity Valley and more broadly the Order vs. Chaos struggle between "civilisation" (The Alliance) and independence (The, erm, Independents) that forms the undercurrent of the film. Thematically, the Operative, Mal, and River are all looking for peace of mind.

Oh, Crap!: The Operative's smugness turns to complete terror as he realises who Mal has brought with him to get past the blockade. Inara is very good at reading and controlling body language, so when she meets the Operative, the way her smile fades before he even says anything speaks volumes. The head scientist gets an understated one when Simon says, "She always did love to dance." He has just enough time to realize that this isn't a government official he's been escorting into Top Secret research areas before he is knocked out by the stun grenade. The crew, when they learn where Miranda is located, as Zoe explains, in-between where they are and Miranda are the Reavers. All the Reavers.

Biological Weapons Solve Everything: Failed spectacularly. The Alliance attempted to use an engineered gas to make the populace of a colony world peaceful and non-aggressive.

Precision F-Strike: "Eight months. Eight months you had her on my boat knowing full well she could go monkeyshit at the wrong word and you never said a thing." It's easy to miss it, but this is a cuss word they couldn't drop on Fox, but could in a Big Damn Movie. In the movie's novelization by Keith R.A. DeCandido, a version of the scene on Haven where Mal announces his plan to use the corpses of the murdered settlers as part of a disguise for Serenity to cross Reaver space is featured where Mal drops the F-bomb to emphasize his point. Pretty sure the same scene is featured in the early draft of the film's script floating around the 'Net, the version where Wash and Book don't die.

Act of True Love: The film starts with Simon breaking his sister out of the Alliance research facility where she was being experimented on. On viewing a recording of it, the Operative and the lead researcher discuss Simon's motives, and the fact that he pretty much threw his life away to do it. The scientist thinks it's insane, but the Operative points out that he's motivated by love, which makes him even more dangerous.

Special Effect Branding: Both used and subverted throughout Firefly and Serenity. The Alliance and civilian vessels (particularly Serenity) have very distinctive differences from each other. However, while definitely "branded" with their Spikes of Villainy, painted blood, and corpses, the Reaver ships are still recognizable by class - one shot from Serenity's fleet battle shows an Alliance frigate and a Reaverized counterpart of the same ship in great detail.

Bring News Back: After learning the horrible truth about what happened on Miranda, Mal and the crew of Serenity set out to reach the only means of sending/spreading the report on what happened. It's something of a variant on this in that the only "authority figures" around, the Alliance, had the report buried, since they were responsible for the whole thing, but Mal is determined to get the message out in order to speak for the people who died there, and to strike a serious blow against the Alliance.

Have a Nice Death: The Operative usually offers one of these. He's not being insincere or mocking when he does this, since he's pretty big on the "honorable death" thing.

You Can't Go Home Again
 Serenity / int_da12bcfb
comment
You Can't Go Home Again: Neither River nor Simon Tam can return to their home on Osiris, because doing so would get Simon arrested and River sent back to the Academy. On a more blunt note, Malcolm Reynolds can't go back to his home on Shadow because the Alliance virtually destroyed the planet during the Unification War, rendering it uninhabitable.

Aesoptinum: The Pax, an experimental chemical agent that the Alliance used to attempt to control possible violence in one of its colonies. It ended up failing spectacularly when most of the test subjects became so passive that they simply lay down and died of starvation, with a very small portion of the population instead becoming monstrous Reavers.

 Serenity / int_dca70c44
comment
Reasonable Authority Figure: The Operative comes off like this at first. When Dr. Mathias sees him reviewing footage of River's escape, he protests that there was nothing he could have done to prevent that. The Operative actually agrees with this, saying that Simon had spent far too much time and effort preparing for the escape for them to realistically have prevented it. Then he executes Dr. Mathias because he had, inadvertently, leaked government secrets by allowing Parliament members into the same room as a mind-reader.

A Mind Is a Terrible Thing to Read
 Serenity / int_ddfb4e53
comment
A Mind Is a Terrible Thing to Read: Simply being put in a room with key members of Parliament was enough to drive River completely monkey-shit. It is expanded on in the Novelization—she was writing coherent secret messages to Simon right up until that point, upon which they immediately degraded to hash. On Miranda, River is able to hear the psychic echoes of the former population, and is driven to tears by what she hears: the deafening silence of millions of minds made so apathetic that they let themselves die.

 Serenity / int_e663d3ef
comment
Only a Flesh Wound: When Mal gets stabbed during his fight with the Operative, though having Alliance medical care available soon after may make it somewhat less applicable. During the Reaver chase scene in the opening, Jayne gets impaled through a leg by a barbed harpoon. It doesn't seem to bother him much until he's back on Serenity.note This is actually likely a case of Shown Their Work, as in high danger situations, adrenaline kicks in to allow the body to ignore otherwise very painful injuries until the danger has passed. Given that Jayne's injury didn't take out a major artery and he didn't do much athletic work with the leg after getting safely onto the Mule...

comment
The Oner: A 4-minute-long shot right after the title card, which follows Mal through the corridors of Serenity, establishing the geography of the ship, allowing him to interact with the other six people on board, and providing an Establishing Character Moment for all of them. (Per DVD Commentary, it's actually two shots disguised with a whip pan, because Serenity's upper and lower decks were built as different sets.) The cinematography decision was a deliberate attempt to ground the movie, which until then had involved nested flashbacks (River's school days, Simon's heist, The Operative's investigations), two Info Dumps and a lot of disorientation.

Groin Attack: When River's violent programming is triggered in the bar on Beaumonde, in the middle of trashing the place and beating the crap out of everyone within reach, she grabs Jayne's package and squeezes. Hard. Jayne is icing it down in the next scene. This could be a subtle Brick Joke to the episode "Trash", when River insulted Jayne by stating that his is a girl's name, to which he angrily replied, "I'll show her good and all I got man parts."
