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!

Customer Reviews

Big x-files fan here, and this movie was a huge disappointment.
R. Mark
The second thing one might need to know is that "I Want to Know" is not much of a movie.
R. Long
Perhaps the most confusing aspect is the relationship between the two main characters.

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.

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.

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.

I am a fan, I would have been happy with 2 hours worth of Mulder and Scully doing absolutely nothing in the screen, as long as they were back. But, we have been given a lot more! Chris Carter has given us a thriller and a pretty good one at that.

The film follows FBI agents in their search for a missing agent. They are aided by a man, a priest of questionable morals, who has visions. They bring in Mulder and Scully, now a surgeon (since when?!) to help them in their investigation. If Mulder helps, all will be forgiven (a bit of a stretch since he was charged by the military for murder after all). Regardless, our favorite couple discovers a sinister plan that will make you cringe.

Amanda Peet is the FBI Agent that brings Mulder in. Her character could have been better used. Skinner makes an appearance!

The movie was sinister, evil, spooky and just plain wrong. It was great! To top is all off: Mulder and Scully. There is nothing bad we can say about their acting and their portrayals...they own these characters, they created them, and made them the memorable characters we like. The direction was excellent, with amazing long shots and beautiful photography. The great musical score was done by Mark Snow, who else would have been better for this?!

For the X-philes (fans): oh, this will be fun, sunflower seeds, "I want to believe" poster, pencils in the ceiling and a whole lotta Mulder and Scully talk. Priceless. Did you see Chris Carter in the scene at the hospital, sitting down?

For the X-shippers, you will be happy. Mulder and Scully, what has happened will be answered and then some.

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.

Enough with the Digital Copy and the cutsie edition names!
Well, it's nice to be able to watch a favorite movie on a portable device, but with the DRM-enabled "digital copy" on these discs, it's pointless. You're better off using the plethora of ways available for free on the net to transfer video. I don't want to be locked into DRM, nor do... Read More

What is the "Trust No One" documentary?
It is related to this movie only, not the series as a whole. However, it is an extremely well done documentary that takes you through the entire process of the film from script to final product and focuses on the lengths they went through to try to keep the plot a secret. I have to say its the... Read More
