  • X-Files: I want to believe (avoid at all costs)

    As a long time fan of the show and the first movie, I went into this flick expecting a high quality production at least on par with the last one or a really good episode. I don't often say this about a movie, but I absolutely HATED it. I was mad when I left the theatre.

    It is deathly slow.
    The plot is a total mess and is more fitting to a movie like Hostel or Saw.
    The characters were totally unlikeable and even cameos by XFiles regulars were thrown away.

    If you had a notion of seeing this film, stay far far away. rates the film at 34% which is spot on.

    OK, I've done my good deed of the day!
    Our forefathers died to give us freedom, not free stuff.

    That is definitely bad news, but it confirms what I have been hearing elsewhere. It also confirms the old adage that sequels are usually a bad idea.

      The plot felt more like a eposide of Law and Order SVU than X-Files. It was pretty bad and slow to me.
