I don't think it sucked....

I think it just wasn't the route people expected... with 9 years of history to pull on you would have thought that they coulda come up with something better... for example an old enemy raises it's ugly head once again ie 'Tooms' like killings occuring cause an X-File to be reopened.

An old enemy that would bring mulder out of hiding and Scully back to the FBI for one last case...

But we got

Kiddy Fiddlin priests and ice...

I seem to be in the minority here, but I thought it was an excellent film. It was a very poignant drama which really rounded off the Mulder and Scully arcs. What it lacked in special effects and action, it more than made up in character study. I guess most X-Files fans expected an action-packed FX extravaganza and were put off by the film simply being a dramatic thriller. I dug it, though.

I loved the character development but come on the FBI wanted list has Mulder on it

Spoiler
and he's shacked up with Scully? surely they'd have been watchin her :lol:


Nah character development was great but the Will They, Won't They relationship of Mulder made the First movie brill and the series wonderful with each weekly adventure I was more of the Supernatural fan of the show rather then the alien stuff....

I didn't see it in theaters, because I was still catching up on the seasons. I read somewhere that it did break 50 mil worldwide, which could leave hope open for another flick in 2012. If they are really cool, they'll do it on Dec 22, the day cancerman said that the big battle would take place. I'll pick this up, to have my $$ be counted for that possibility-I love X-Files!

I'll blind buy this as an X Files fan that missed it on release.

I have heard though that its a glorified tv movie but average X Files is better than no X Files

I'd say someone took the piss and spent 15% of the budget on the film itself and then buggered off with the rest of the money

Yeah! X-Files movie on Blu-Ray

Oh Crap, it's being released by Fox, so who knows if we're going to get a good transfer or not.

This wouldn't have even made a good sweeps episode. This would probably have worked as a Millennium episode. Hell the final episode "The Truth" felt more like a film than this. I just don't know what Carter was thinking.

I agree that the story itself was rather tame, but the best part of the movie was simply seeing the old crew in action again.

Default Do Not Blind Buy

Hey Guys,

I have been coming here for a couple of years now and finally decided to jump in to warn you not to blind buy this one. I am a huge X-Files fan and have all 9 seasons but this movie is beyond bad. There is absolutely no action. Not one gun shot is fired, in fact, Moulder and Skully do not even have guns. There is no X-File in the film. You can tell there was no budget. An episode of Lost or 24 has better production value then this film did. The plot is a mash up of ER and CSI on a really bad day. If you need any more reasons to not pick this up I will be around. For those that liked the film....I've got nothing.
