All good things...,
By A Customer
This review is from: The X Files: The Truth [DVD] (DVD)
In The X-Files: The Truth, Mulder (David Duchovny) returns after a year's absence, placed on trial for a killing super-soldier Knowle Rhorer, a man we know he couldn't possibily have killed. While A.D. Skinner (Mitch Pileggi) stands in as Mulder's attorney, Scully (Gillian Anderson), Doggett (Robert Patrick) and Reyes (Annabeth Gish) look for evidence that will prove Mulder's innocence and the truth behind the X-Files once and for all.
If you're expecting this final release to tie up all the loose ends from the previous nine years, then you're going to be sorely disappointed. In all fairness, it would have been virtually impossible to do it as the long running alien conspiracy has been twisted that many times that I'm not sure even the writers understand what's going on anymore. However, for die hard fans I'm sure "The Truth" offers a satisfying conclusion for what one of the most important shows of the 90's.
I on the other hand was disappointed, while it was good to see David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson together again as Mulder and Scully, I couldn't help feel sorry for Robert Patrick and Annabeth Gish who are virtually ignored here, despite their valiant efforts over the past two seasons to keep the show alive. Hope that they will feature prominatley in the next feature film, but as for the show itself, I'm glad it's over, it has more than run it's course, and despite a few rather good episodes, this last season has been rather poor. And The Truth? Well, it's still out there!
