This movie sucked...... bad. I love the x-files as much as the next guy, but this was pretty god awful. I would get Fight the Future on blue ray at a descent price, but you would have to pay me to sit through this again.

Was it really that bad? The movie left the theatres so fast I got whiplash, so I didn't get a chance to see it first hand. In an offhand way, can you say what was bad about the movie? Like was it the acting, the story, everything, or was it something else? I'm kind of curious how they could screw this up that bad.

No, it wasn't that bad. Was it particularly great? No, especially after waiting 5-6 years for an X-Files continuation. It was basically a decent but not exceptional standalone episode of the series (aside from the character developments of Mulder and Scully which I thought was the one highlight of the movie).

Even though I had a free ticket to see this... I never dedicated a day to it. Netflix-ing it for sure.

It was a really bad episode of the x-files, nothing more. I mean I wasn't expecting greatness.... but.... just to save some people the Fox pricetag on a blindbuy. The movie *spoiler* is about a stem cell transvestite. There I said it.... and the only supernatural part is an old guy stumbling around in the snow for 20 minutes. Soooo yeah its pretty bad.

And don't even get me started on the guard dog... sorry about the spoiler but its for your own good.

IWTB did suck but as a huge X-Files fan I will not be able to resist picking up the Blu-ray. Hopefully Fight the Future comes out the same day. That film was terrific!
