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.

I want to believe this latest X-Files film was created for a reason other than financial reward, but I find it difficult to guess at what that reason might have been.

...lives up to the standard set by its small-screen predecessor's superb early seasons.

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

Some fans will be pleased, others annoyed and endless online discussion will be generated, while X virgins will most likely wonder what all the fuss is about.

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.

One big, vaguely ominous blur, in which nothing really seems to be at stake except Chris Carter's future as a movie creator.

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.

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.

I'm sure that fans of the show were satisfied, but others may find this movie uninvolving and its conspiracy theories juvenile. It's nothing more than a two-hour promotion for the television series that fails to resolve any of the conflicts it introduces.

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.
