Default The X-Files: I Want to Believe-IGN Review-One of the worst films of the summer

Well this sucks. I know its only one review but I was a big fan of the show and was looking forward to this movie but it appears its going to be a huge let down.

The movie was actually quite good and that review is absolutely wrong. The movie is NOT a huge let down, but people will think it is for no reason other than people constantly spreading shitty reviews without even seeing the movie.

Check Roger Ebert's review for a better and more genuine take on the movie:

I've read reviews where people say the acting is top notch (as expected) but that there's been better plots on any episode of LA Law... why they would put this plot into a movie was beyond them.

Well that review is much better. The review from IGN was the first I read and it sounded like it was going to be a huge letdown but it looks like reviewers are just having different takes on the movie. I was going to watch it regardless but thanks for posting the other review. It certainly makes it sound more promising. Changed thread title to make people aware that it is just IGN's review on the movie.

Its not a huge let down if somebody else reviews it and says its crap. Reviews are only opinions of other people. I think we tend to latch on to reviews and make our minds up before we even see the movie. If you see it and like it. Then YOU cant say its a letdown.

In other words you want to believe... hehehehehe... Great title for an X-Files movie I think, I too am hoping for an entertaining movie going experience. This was one of my fav all time series.

IGN has some of the worst film reviewers in the industry.

I take everything they state with a grain of salt.
