Editorial Reviews

When a group of women are mysteriously abducted, it becomes a case right out of The X-Files. The best team for the job is ex-agents Fox Mulder and Dr. Dana Scully, who have no desire to revisit their dark past. Still, the truth of these horrific crimes is out there somewhere - and it will take Mulder and Scully to find it!

Much like the first theatrical outing for Mulder and Scully, this will disappoint some for what it is not, and others for what it actually is. It is very much the type of stand-alone story which used to be squeezed between the conspiracy and mythology episodes. The problem presented by the avenue chosen by Chris Carter and Frank Spotnitz is that after so many years have passed, fans aching for what The X-Files did best will be confronted by a dreary and snowy low-key and intimate story which while excellent on its own, is not what fans had anticipated.

That being said, I do believe, however, after the initial shock, and perhaps after a second viewing, fans will embrace it for Carter's courage to once again fly in the face of the powers that be and tell an often creepy stand-alone story showing how the darkness always found Mulder and Scully, and how it was having each other to lean on which helped each keep their faith. It is almost as if this is a segue to something more on the horizon. For even within the confines of a story which does not deal in the slightest manner with any of the X-Files mythology fans have hungered for, there are portents.

Beginning with both Mulder and Scully leading very different lives than those we came to know, Carter uses the darkness to bring them back together. It is a kidnapped F.B.I. Agent and a Bureau ready to forgive Mulder for his many indiscretions if only he will help work with the psychic who may or may not be genuine which starts things rolling. Scully's need to help a young boy with an incurable disease and the relationship of our favorite F.B.I. couple, even though neither works for the Bureau anymore, gets as much screen time as the premise, which is like a creepy episode rather than a feature film.

5.0 out of 5 stars I will always believe!! September 22, 2008
Format:DVD
Mulder and Scully are back...and that's incredibly awesome!!!
I think it was a shame this movie didn't get the attention it deserved when it was released. I believe that the studio's poor promotion and the unfortunate date of release --THE DARK NIGHT's SUMMER-, among other external conditions didn't help it attract more viewers. But now that this fantastic 3-disc edition is here, there is no earthly excuse to not watch Mulder's and Scully's triumphal return.

Give this movie a chance if:

1)You were a fan back in the 90's --oH THOSE HAPPY DAYS!--.
2)You are sick of flat characters who never actually grow up, grow old and /or mature.
3)You are in the mood for an intelligent little movie and you have had your share of CGI and exaggerated action sequences -that, let's face it, turn out to be a whole lot of nonsense most of the times-.
4)You want to be captivated by 2 of the most representative characters in TV history.

Give it a try, re-watch some of the tv series'episodes, get in the mood and enjoy!! Remember the Truth is out there...and we want to find it in a third movie. I waited 6 years for this one, I hope I won't be waiting that much for an XF3!!!

Note: If you watched the movie in the theatre and thought the storyline had some slight plotholes, check out the DVD edition of the film. This is REALLY the film Carter wanted to give us. Few extra scenes give a subtle but meaningful enhancement.

4.0 out of 5 stars X-Files: Redemption... January 18, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The X-Files TV series' untidy conclusion left fans wondering what happened. 2008's "The X Files: I Want To Believe" is producers Chris Carter and Frank Spotnitz' attempt to scratch that itch. The fan base of the TV series should find the result enjoyable if not completely satisfying.

As the story opens, a female FBI agent is subjected to a brutal kidnapping. The FBI's principal lead in the case is a disgraced pedophile priest (Billy Connally) with psychic visions of the kidnapping. The FBI lead investigators (nicely played by Amanda Peet and Alvin "Xzibit" Joiner) find themselves out of their depth and seek out former agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully (David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson reprising their roles). Scully is working as a doctor at a Catholic hospital, trying to save a young boy with a nominally terminal illness. Mulder is living in seclusion in a rural cottage, avoiding the FBI. The FBI offers them a clean slate if they will help.

Thus begins a bizarre case that would have been a solid "monster of the week" episode from the series. Mulder and Scully wrestle with clues that defy easy explanation; the credulous Mulder and the skeptical Scully will debate their meaning while racing to stop a hideous medical experiment. In a thrilling conclusion, Scully will call upon an old FBI friend to help rescue Mulder, whose relentless pursuit of the clues leaves him in mortal danger.

Carter and Spotnitz largely avoid X-Files conspiracy mythology while delivering the standard format of the TV series. Most satisfying to this reviewer, they honor the nuanced relationship between Mulder and Scully, who pick up their repartee without missing a beat.

3.0 out of 5 stars First 4 seasons were not produced in Hi-Def May 20, 2011
Format:Blu-ray
***October 6, 2013 Update***
The Hollywood Reporter confirms that 'Illuminate Hollywood' has been creating new 4k HD Masters of the X-Files TV series. The original unedited camera negatives are being scanned in HD and will be re-edited back into complete shows. Special effects will have to re-created with CGI in HD. Cutting continuities and SD Videos of the original shows will be used as reference for editing. The bad news is that this is the new name for the company that botched the Star Trek TNG season 2 Blu-ray with DNR & other errors. CBS cancelled their contract with them after that.

----Original review----

If the original 35mm camera film elements exist there is some hope, but like ST-TNG every episode would have to be re-edited and the special effects re-created using the original 35mm films.

The first 4 seasons of the X - Files were not produced in Hi-Definition, the original camera negatives were transfered to standard definition video and the video was edited into the final shows. Unlike classic filmed TV shows of the 1950's, 60's & 70's where in those days the final editing was done on 35mm negatives, so a Hi-Definition transfer can be made of those old shows. From mid 1980 to 1998, the camera films were directly transfered to standard definition video for editing, no edited 35mm film master exists to make a new hi-Definition transfer.

Starting with season 5 (1997) the X-Files was produced in wide screen, but even that does not mean it was in hi-Definition as it pre-dates U.S. Hi-Definition broadcasts & standards. Hi-Definition broadcasts didn't start until October 1998, and then it was not for regular TV series.

Glad I'm not the only one that thought this movie was REALLY weak. Everything that made the X-Files enjoyable to me (tension, NOT having everything spelled out for you, ect...) was GONE.

It is related to this movie only, not the series as a whole.

I have to say its the... Read More
