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.

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.

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.
May 19, 2008
Only two scenes in this spin-off are worth the time of followers of the TV series.
July 23, 2007
One big, vaguely ominous blur, in which nothing really seems to be at stake except Chris Carter's future as a movie creator.

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

... dumbed down and flattened out
April 8, 2004
A huge disappointment.
August 11, 2003
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.

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?

The labyrinthine plot got so outlandish at times that our audience started laughing at it.

Chris Carter has succeeded so well in keeping the plot under wraps that even after you watch the imposing imagery, you leave the theater wondering who's conspiring against whom for what purpose.
January 1, 2000
Move along. Nothing to see here.
