Not delivering the amiable approach to the movie's subversive themes it might have hoped for, The X-Files tells a rather inconventional yet alluring conspiracy story that will defy one's belief within the format of a more ambitious episode of the eminent TV series, strongly supported by Duchovny and Anderson's indisputable chemistry.

Even if you did not watch the series the movie is still for everyone. You will not get lost and you will find out the basis of the X-Files. David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson do an excellent job. The story is well thought out and many questions are answered.

Ok for a loyal X Files fan, although its essentially a high budget double TV episode, not a film.

The Alien Conspiracy finally comes to light in The X-Files: Fight the Future. Set between seasons 5 and 6 of the television series, FBI agents Mulder and Sully investigate the bombing of a federal building and uncover a sinister plot by a secret cabal to pave the way for alien colonization. Both David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson bring their A-game and deliver strong performances. Additionally, several recurring characters from the series stop by for cameos. Some knowledge of the television show is helpful, but for the most part the film does a good job at giving the audience a taste of the series without overwhelming them with too much mythology. Exciting and full of thrills, The X-Files: Fight the Future delivers a compelling sci-fi adventure with aliens, shadowy organizations, and government conspiracies.

This inbetween the season 5 and 6 movie, is at all the effects part of the mithology of x-files, for this reason is totally faithful to the series. This is both a plus and a minus in my opinion. A plus, because all the people who follow the serie and watch the movies, recognize it immediately, and appreciate it for what it is: a very long cinematic episode of the x-files world (much before the Marvel try to do something similar with the different phases of its movies and tv series). The minus is that, if someone did not go to watch the movie to the cinema when it went out, would have surely lost too much in respect to the tv series. In fact, while in the preceding 5 seasons something rarely happens that give to the story a great advance, in the 2 hours of the movie a lot happens in a very short time. This is a bit unfair for the tv series itself, although as already said the movie should be just considered their extensions. The only real minus though, is that this movie is terribly long to be truly enjoyable, because the structure is the same of a tv episode, only 1h 20 minutes longer!

As a huge fan of the series, this movie was everything I was hoping it would be. It has supernatural mysteries, uber conspiracies, and scares/surprises throughout. Many complained that this just simply felt like a 2 hour TV episode, but at the end of the day, isn't that just what fan of the X-Files are hoping for. There isn't anything wrong with the TV series, so why fix it if it ain't broke? Don't get me wrong, the set pieces and action sequences are worthy of the Hollywood big screen, so there is more here than just your 40+ minute FOX episode. So again, what more could you possibly hope for than an elongated TV episode that successfully bridges Season 5 to Season 6?

It may come as a mystery to people who are not familiar to the series but overall fight for the future satisfies the big screen movie that the die hard fans waited for
½ January 19, 2016
Basically, a two hour episode with better production value. That's not necessarily bad for fans of the show but even fans of the show might have a hard time finding any reason for this movie to exist.

The x files the movie was just as good as the TV show. With it being shut down Mulder and Scully are just working as normal FBI agents and not liking their job when they discover a bomb and not is all as it seems. Soon they discover there is a cover up and as usual Mulder is on the case

This movie was intended to bridge seasons 5 and 6, but it was so much more than that. Great film for fans of the X-Files!
½ July 18, 2015
Fits into Chris Carter's original story arc perfectly and maintains all the entertainment of the series and then some.
½ July 9, 2015
This sci-fi thriller is sure to be a hit with fans, although it may come off as boring to those unfamiliar with the series.
May 14, 2015
Furthers the series and sets up what's to come but it really didn't need the big screen to accomplish that feat.
February 10, 2015
This movie was good but it felt like a bigger budget TV episode.
September 15, 2014
This is an amazing in between film for those that follow the series and really makes the rest watching of the series much more exciting and meaningful knowing that many things were brought to light. A normal viewer would probably not understand some aspects but it is still watchable either way. Still focuses more on teasing the 6th season but it answers some unanswered question about the first half of the series.
