Chris Carter had the daunting task of pleasing fans of the show, while at the same time not alienating those new to it. It's a balancing act that he mostly achieved, but in the end it's probably best enjoyed by those who are already fans.

Dark, funny, paranoid, arbitrary, humming with tamped-down eroticism and in love with all things weird: That's the good news.

Stylish, scary, sardonically funny and at times just plain gross.

The director, Rob Bowman, is not some TV hack; his work is thrillingly kinetic.

If you watch the show religiously, you've probably already seen it this weekend.

Production-wise, the film is pretty slick with large budget F/X helping the upscale television production.

It's a great way to relieve the anxiety that the series' endless mysteries have built.

The sci-fi action movie probably has little to offer those not already hooked on the series. Trust me.

What UFO conspiracy movie would be complete without a scene of the heroes running through a cornfield with helicopters chasing them?

The whole enterprise is constructed of equal parts brains and heart -- and the end result shows a high degree of commitment and affection.

The X-Files isn't likely to go down in history as as great sci-fi flick, but it harbors enough good fun to qualify as a jolt of sprightly, brainless summer entertainment.

The paradox of both the show and the movie is that, like its investigative protagonists, it is both hysterically paranoid and rigorously rational.

This first episode works well enough. Underneath the murk, the darkness, the desperation, the blood and the gruesome autopsies, lies a golden heart of goofy fun and satire.

I'm a huge devotee of the series, so it's a little tough to be objective, but I think the movie is self-contained enough not to confuse those who aren't.

This bigscreen version of the rampantly popular TV show is, as expected, exciting and compelling from start to finish, maintaining the intelligent writing, wry humor and character chemistry of the series.
