The X-Files - Fight the Future Reviews

The X-Files movie is really just a two-hour teaser for the series's sixth season. And little else.

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.

As it is, pic serves up set-pieces and a measure of scope that are beyond TV size but remain rather underwhelming by feature standards.

Only two scenes in this spin-off are worth the time of followers of the TV series.

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

The truth may be out there, but it's certainly not in here.

Had the creator of The X-Files set out to prove that tiny theorem, he couldn't have done a better job.

David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson are enormously sympathetic heroes.

Who hasn't walked into a movie late and tried desperately to catch up with the plot, to make sense of what's on the screen?

It's a two-hour episode of the show, except with better production values and a nicer wardrobe for Scully.

One of the season's more lightly enjoyable mainstream offerings.

Conspiracy theorists, consider this: What if the hush-hush atmosphere and Internet mania surrounding the first X-Files feature film were part of a giant plot to hide the uneventfulness of one more summertime sci-fi fizzle?

As pure movie, The X-Files more or less works. As a story, it needs a sequel, a prequel, and Cliff Notes.
