The X-Files: I Want to Believe (The X Files 2) Reviews
An awful return for the once mighty show. Anderson is given a backseat but once again proves she has surpassed Duchovny and this show.
Starring: David Duchovny, Gillian Anderson, Amanda Peet, Billy Connolly, and Alvin "Xzbit" Joner
Directed By: Chris Carter
To Find The Truth You Must Believe
O my god, I don't understand why fans of the show don't like this movie because I love it! Most fans of the show don't like this movie because it wasn't about aliens. And for them I have one question, who gives a crap! The show was never about aliens it was about the paranormal in general hell we didn't even see an alien until like what season four or even the first movie, plus it mostly centered on Mulder and Scully's relationship investigating the paranormal.
The film is about our two agents Mulder and Scully being called for help on the FBI for a case with a series of unexplained murders with a man who is having visions. Scully is being tested with both her faith in God and science because of this man as she tries to save a boy she is nursing and save Mulder.
The film does have a plot that is very interesting, because it keeps you shrouded in mystery and you never what's coming until the end. I would also like to point that it was half of the time Scully who needed the saving throughout most of the show and in the last movie. I won't spoil the ending but it's a great send off to the case.
The cast and the performances from this movie were utterly good and joining our famous agents we love so much were cast members Amanda Peet, Alvin "Xzbit" Joner and Billy Connolly who I found too be good as well, especially Billy and Amanda they stood out most when it came to new characters.
The movie is more in tone with the "Monster of the Week" episodes from the series and those were always my favorite. One about a man who could control electrical items, fire, a kid who made his fears come to life and my favorite a fast food clerk who was an ancient creature eating brains.
A big question is answered for both Mulder and Scully in this movie do they believe or do they just want to believe? I was introduced to The X-Files by a good review for this movie and when I found the show on Netflix and the chronological order of the movies and where they came in between the shows I watched it all just to get to here and it's been a blast. And I have grown to love all the characters from the series. Nothing more for me to say to say can't for the mini series, hope after that they make a third movie and screw the haters of this movie because I'm giving The X-Files: I Want To Believe a five out of five.
