Storyline Heading
Baker Dill is a fishing boat captain leading tours off a tranquil, tropical enclave called Plymouth Island. His quiet life is shattered, however, when his ex-wife Karen tracks him down with a desperate plea for help. She begs Dill to save her - and their young son - from her new, violent husband by taking him out to sea on a fishing excursion, only to throw him to the sharks and leave him for dead. Karen's appearance thrusts Dill back into a life he'd tried to forget, and as he struggles between right and wrong, his world is plunged into a new reality that may not be all that it seems.

Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Drama Thriller - This is a mystery/thriller aimed at an adult audience. Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, and Jason Clarke play the key roles while other familiar faces such as Diane Lane and Djimon Hounsou have much smaller ones. Language, violence, sexual content, and adult subject matter make the film not for kids.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Above Average ...a film that contains some big, interesting ideas but never fully gels. The ending in particular feels hollow because of the revelations that precede it. McConaughey rarely (if ever) gives a bad performance and he doesn't make this an exception

Roger Ebert Full Review
Poor ...terrible and insane, and will surely end up being one of the worst films of 2019. But it's also such a wildly ambitious roller coaster ride that it must be experienced, preferably with friends, to laugh together at its cheesy dialogue, over-the-top performances and multiple, major plot twists.

NY Post Full Review
Average With its pulse-pounding, blue fin tuna fishing scenes (you read that right), enthusiastic humping and a video-game plot twist, "Serenity” could have been a nifty noir potboiler. Alas, there's very little "Body Heat” in this waterlogged "Double Indemnity” revamp.

Rex Reed Full Review
Terrible ...Serenity already qualifies as the worst film of 2019. Both moronically written and directed with shocking, amateurish ineptitude by Stephen Knight, it's a pointless bomb... As the movie turns into a long, exasperating episode from The Twilight Zone, the dialogue induces giggles and then loud guffaws.

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 42 moviegoers:
ADULTS: These are not bad reviews, but they aren't very good reviews for a Matthew McConaughey movie. About 30% of the males and 40% of the females enjoyed "Serenity" very much. This isn't real bad, but it is quite low. If you are a fan of Matthew McConaughey, it's probably worth a matinee ticket since approximately 75% enjoyed it, at least to some degree, and only about 10% to 15% rated it as low as "poor."
