Product Description

Product Description

A special edition X File comprising two episodes from the first series edited into a feature length film. Three people are killed by a serial killer, who rips out their liver and then leaves quickly leaving every possible exit locked from the inside. A suspect is soon found, and he is a 100-year-old mutant, an abnormality who is able to reshape his body at will and goes into hibernation for thirty years once he has completed his bloody work.

From Amazon.co.uk

The definitive American television series of the 1990s. The X-Files comes to the big screen with an anticlimactic whimper. And how could it be otherwise? Why should material so perfectly realised in one medium necessarily translate well into another? The series is crisply and thoughtfully executed in just about every detail, but the heart of its appeal lies in the elegant handling of complicated and evolving ongoing story lines, which is not something movies are especially good at. The big-screen drive for closure cramps the creative style, though it may also help nonfans get a grip on the proceedings. We do get some invigorating thrills and chills, however, and a more satisfying sense of the scale of an all-enveloping human-alien conspiracy than ever before, but there's no more plot development here than in an average two-part season-ending. FBI black sheep Mulder and Scully have been temporarily transferred from the X-Files project to an anti-terrorist unit to investigate an Oklahoma City-style bombing. They uncover a new wrinkle in the Syndicate/Cancer Man conspiracy--basically an attempt to help one bunch of (benign?) aliens fight off another bunch who want to colonise Earth. A spectacular, ice-bound finale thrillingly staged by series-veteran director Rob Bowman offers Mulder (but not a conveniently unconscious Scully) his first clear look at a You Know What, which in some quarters qualifies as an epochal event. Martin Landau offers the agents some crucial clues, and several familiar TV faces (including the Lone Gunmen and Mitch Pileggi's indispensable Assistant Director Skinner) turn up briefly to wink knowingly at faithful fans. --David Chute --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: DVD
For 5 years The X Files haunted tv screens around the world. Chris Carter his and Chums created this movie as a "treat" to fans for being so loyal to the show. What was also done however, was that the movie was also made so that anyone could sit down and watch it. However, to experince the full impact of the movie, those who have already followed the show through its 5 Seasons will respect and enjoy this movie. (And will of course scream as I did when Mulder & Scully's near kiss is cut short due to a little bee problem)
The aspect of this movie is a two part X File episode in one go, we were left on a rather od cliffhanger in Season 5 and then the movie very much picks up from there. Certian themes are ressurecited for the movie (ie The Black Oil), but also a new Alien form shows up (although this is very much a mimic of ALIENS, The X Files version mixes very well with the growing mythology). In the context of WHEN this movie was relesed, it was awful. Boring and even confusing. But in context of the over all show and The DVDs, this is a must for your X Fies collection.
For not only does this tie in with the Season 6 opener, but also these themes will return in Season 8. (Keep an eye out for "Fight The Future" later on in the series of the show.)

I first saw this movie in the cinema on its release and wasn't sure whether I liked it or not. However having purchased all the seasons DVDs and watching this movie again in between Season 5 and Season 6, it is VERY relevant and good entertainment, linking those two Seasons together.
It perhaps doesn't have the same feel as the series, but all the elements are still there. Mulder and Scully nagging at each other in their funny ways, Skinner playing middle ground, and Cigarette Smoking Man always lurking in the least suspecting of places.
The movie DOES progress the theory of the conspiracy the Syndicate has with the aliens to form a slave race, while at the same time trying to invent an anti-virus to fight off that impending invasion
The special effects are excellent and the movie does have quite a bit of pace.
As a fan from the start I still feel it could have been better in places and have a bit more edge like the episodes have, but it's still very worthwhile to have this movie in your X-Files collection.

The last time I cried about a TV show, I think I was about 5. Since then, I've been a self-proclaimed 'hard man' and I never cry. But this changed everything. Everything I've been watching for, everything that Mulder was searching for- it's all there. The ending was deeply upsetting and yet incredibly liberating and frankly, an incredible climax to the show's greatest mysteries. The whole show is worth watching merely for the ending, but quite frankly, I only mention the ending as the climax of one of the greatest episodes ever (That's CLOSURE, not SEIN UND ZEIT). This mythology video was voted the best ever made. I completely agree. If you miss this, you are not an X-Files fan. Don't miss it. Sure, you may have had the climax ruined by over eager journalists or friends, but don't let that spoil the most deeply emotional episode ever written. Believe. Sure, Sein und Zeit is a little disappointing up until the last 15 minutes, but Closure is incredible. Even if you're a Scully-sceptic, don't miss out on this. You must find the truth. Buy this video now. I'm begging you. Don't miss out.
You want the truth? Then buy this.
"Are you OK, Tom?" "I'm fine. I'm free."

If you ever lost interest in the x files in the last few years after being a regular watcher, and you're wondering what happened since they made the movie, then this is the one to buy, this video answers HEAPS of questions while only raising a few new ones.
The video picks up after the mysterious appearance of a new species of blank faced aliens that burn people alive. Revealing them as a "rebel" species, who play an important role in the plot concerning alien colonisation of earth.
In this video, we learn more definitive answers to...
1- The true identity of cancerman, and his relationship to Jeffry and Cassandra Spender.
2- The whereabouts of Mulder's sister, and the true reason behind her abduction
3- The real deal concerning the relationship between cancerman's secret group, and the aliens.
And lastly, the main new question that is raised is... what role does the rebel aliens really have?

Format: DVD
The great thing about this film is it makes sense without you having to watch the first five seasons of x files beforehand. The writers have developed a fascinating and interesting conspiracy plot that, whilst still having ties to the show, does not require its audience to have extensive prior knowledge of the x files. Instead you can sit back for two hours and be enthralled by this awesome and gripping movie. Gillian Andersen and David Duchovony translate their tv roles to the big screen flawlessly and none of the chemistry or relationship is lost, both actors deliver brilliant performances, as do the supporting cast that is littered with famous faces. The plot is very well written and involves harnessing hundreds of millions of years old alien energy. The aliens are never over-used and look awesome, as does the brilliant CGI (again never over-used).
The pace is relentless and the two hours run time whips past at a breakneck speed, yet nothing is ever glossed over and by the end you will feel thoroughly satisfied and entertained. If you're a fan of the x files i'm sure this will be a winner as it delivers a intricate storyline, brilliant performances and a gripping conspiracy. Those who have never seen x files can still watch and enjoy this as a alien conspiracy thriller and be no less entertained or intrigued than x files fans.
Overall, x files fight the future is a slickly directed, fast paced, well acted thriller that will leave you hungry for the series itself. Compared to the later X files: i want to believe movie this comes first by miles and miles.
