The story in the tradition of some of the show's most acclaimed and beloved episodes, and takes the always-complicated relationship between Fox Mulder and Dana Scully in unexpected directions. Mulder continues his unshakable quest for the truth, and Scully, the passionate, ferociously intelligent physician, remains inextricably tied to Mulder's pursuits.
Drama Mystery Thriller - This is a spin-off to the popular, long-running sci-fi television
series that ended in 2002, but there is a lot of talk and not much
action unlike the first feature film spinoff in 1998. Those looking
for action, scares, and effects won't find them here.
Berardinelli, Internet CriticFull Review Average Rather than providing a springboard to a movie franchise, this film puts the final nail in The X-Files' coffin. Mulder and Scully can now fade into pop culture history.
Roger EbertFull Review Very Good I make it sound a little silly. Well, it is a little silly, but it's also a skillful thriller, giving us just enough cutaways to a sinister laboratory to keep us fascinated.

OPINION OVERVIEW The following is the original "What's Worth
Watching" write-up for this movie.
Based on a theater exit polling of 93 moviegoers:
TEENS:Three of the four males truly enjoyed X-Files. The remaining one rated it "Good/Average." The female reviews are very similar. Four of the six reviews are high with the remaining reviews being "Good/Average" to "Fair."
TWENTYSOMETHINGS:About half the males rated it above average. The remaining reviews are mixed but are not terribly low. The female reviews are quite a bit higher but still have quite a few who rated it somewhat low.
ADULTS:The male and female reviews are about the same, very mixed. About half truly enjoyed X-Files, but it didn't receive very many "Fantastic" reviews, which is a negative. Quite a few rated it "Good/Average," which is decent but quite a few also rated it "Fair" to "Poor." I wouldn't recommend this movie to adults at full ticket prices maybe a matinee or a rental later.
