Serenity: A Letdown, Despite Best Efforts

There’s a whole lot of mystery behind the stakes that drive Serenity as the film finds itself landing somewhere mixed between noir and thriller. Baker Dill (Matthew McConaughey) finds himself in the same routine every day.  Over and over, he plays the same game off of Plymouth Island: catch the fish.  Everybody on the island as their place and they don’t really change up their routines at all.  One day, Baker is shocked to find…
