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

5.0 out of 5 stars Chris Carter, Your The Man! 5 Mar 2003
Format:VHS Tape
Quite possibly the best of the twelve feature-length X-Files that started with 'The Unopened File' and finished with the aptly titled X-File 'The End', but where 'Tooms' excels is in its non-stop action that initiates on a Psychological level and finishes Physical. Originally released on the 25th March 1996 on UK video, 'Tooms' was formerly split into the two divided episodes 'Tooms' & 'Squeeze' in the first pioneering series of the unprecedented Fox Television show and made such an impact they combined the two for this fantastic video.
File 2 'Tooms' is an elaborate yarn regarding a young man called Eugene Tooms who becomes a dominant suspect in a string of fierce murders after his fingerprints are found in a victims' office. Initially perplexed at why the fingerprints are found around the air ducts and on no other points of entry and give the impression to be of a very strange nature as if they have been stretched. FBI Special Agent Fox Mulder, deducing that Tooms is his man, scans his fingerprints with the ones which were found on another sufferer who died 30 years previous. Both Mulder and Partner Special Agent Dana Scully find this exceedingly strange and come to a decision to visit the original case official and question him over the aforementioned Tooms. As the conversation between the three go on, the ex-officer takes out his own research on the case and proves that Tooms is not as young as he looks and his tastes for killing and stealing human livers have a much more sinister reason.
Running for 85mins, the two episodes 'Tooms' & 'Squeeze' are directed by Harry Longstreet and David Nutter, respectively, and are both of the very highest quality. Chris Carters original series does not get any better than this that is on the same level of ingenuity as other celebrated episodes such as 'Ice'. Followed by File 3: Abduction.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fight The Future 11 Sep 2005
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.)

5.0 out of 5 stars "I'm fine. I'm free." 10 May 2001
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
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."

5.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining, better than I remember... 9 Jan 2006
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.
