A good price for what I think is an underrated film.

Joss Whedon, the Oscar and Emmy-nominated writer/director behind Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel, now applies his trademark wit in this breathtaking action epic.

Captain Malcolm Reynolds, a hardened veteran (on the losing side) of a galactic civil war, now ekes out a living aboard his ship, Serenity. He leads a small, eclectic crew, but when Mal takes on two new passengers - a young doctor and his telepathic sister - he gets much more than he bargained for. The pair are fugitives from the coalition dominating the universe, and so Serenity finds itself caught between the unstoppable military force of the Alliance, the horrific, cannibalistic fury of the Reavers - and another danger lurking at the very heart of the spaceship...

Makes more sense if you watch 'Firefly' first, which I didn't, to which it is a sort of sequel. Often available on DVD at £land - not HDR though.

It's explained a bit more in the series. The ships are anything that runs (death traps in a lot of cases) plus they spend a lot of time waiting for prey and they eat people

Yeap, at least we got this movie to try and tie up a lot of the lose ends.

Still takes a lot to run a space ship, arm the torpedo's.. aim.. etc etc.. Actually liked the series and film.. but the Reavers were a bit poop... Reminds me of the Klingon's in Star Trek.. Too busy hitting each other to wonder who they ever got off their planet...
If you like this I highly recommend Cowboy Bebop.

I love the series but yeah, it's an issue with many sci fi shows

The Klingons are a great example. When the show reinforces their society is one of the warrior, you wonder how exactly they manage to match up to one where the preservation of culture and progression of technology is a major drive.

You see in some episodes they do have scientists and engineers that seemingly aren't well respected because of their professions. Maybe it makes sense that those Klingons develop the technology, and then send all the war hungry lunatics off commanding those ships just to get rid of them so they don't have to deal with them on a day to day.

Take your torpedoes and get out

Many breakthroughs happen in wartime. That’s just human against human. Or human against prey when you look at traps. So an intelligent but wary race, would want to be stronger and faster than any potential enemy. This easy to identify even looking at the basic accommodation compared to that on the Enterprise.
anybody purchased this yet and comment on the 4k HDR picture of this, as I purchased the 4k version of Goodfellas on Apple TV for £3.99 and could not tell the difference between HD and 4k!

That much is obvious from our culture. I do think it's more that the nature of the show only really exposes the viewer to the military arm of the Klingons. What the rest of the (presumably billions) populace gets up to is rarely seen. It's this warrior caste that dominates politically at that time so that's what we see.

In early series you have this angle that the Klingons are some totalitarian warmongering regime. It's a rare case that works for major technological advance based on real world human experience. They are more likely to steal or reverse engineer than create. Possibly that is another explanation.

Later on that ideology is heavily watered down to create an allegory of the real cold war and especially the period of detente. It makes more sense by the TNG timeline that such a culture could advance to that level of technology. I find the evolution of the show fascinating, you see a lot more than a simple sci fi if you look close enough.

Anyways, enough of the fictional TV show analysis lol

Going by this review, it's pretty average.
