Anyone wanting to see how exposition should be done should watch the first fifteen minutes of Serenity. The movie had to bring new viewers up to speed on the events and background of the TV series without boring those who had seen the series. There's a dream within a recording within a flashback followed by Mal walking through the ship.

The rest of the film is pretty good too… Reply Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
