Product Description

Product Description

David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson reprise their roles as Agents Mulder and Scully in director Chris Carter's cut of this supernatural thriller. The film begins with the mysterious disappearance of a group of women in Virginia. The FBI calls Mulder and Scully back to duty to investigate and they are led to a priest, Father Joseph Crissman (Billy Connolly), who is having strange visions. Father Crissman's unusual apparitions subsequently lead Mulder and Scully to a bizarre secret medical experiment which may have a connection with the women's disappearance.

From Amazon.co.uk

The feature film The X-Files: I Want to Believe is a satisfying if unspectacular installment in the X-Files series, taking place an unspecified time after the show's nine-year television run. Former agent Dana Scully (Gillian Anderson) is now a doctor, while Fox Mulder (David Duchovny) is being hunted by his former agency and living in seclusion. He and Scully are summoned back by a case involving a missing agent and a former priest (Billy Connolly) who claims to be able to see clues to the agent's whereabouts psychically, though his initial search turns up only a severed limb.

Don't expect the usual cast of characters; the FBI has completely turned over (except for the George W. Bush portrait), and the only reason Scully and Mulder are back is because agent Dakota Whitney (Amanda Peet) remembers his success on similar cases involving the inexplicable. Don't expect the same rogues' gallery either; unlike the previous X-Files feature film, which was inextricably linked to the series' convoluted mythology arc (and served as a bridge between the fifth and sixth seasons), I Want to Believe is a stand-alone piece that makes use of the series' roots in horror/sci-fi and moody Vancouver, B.C., locales. Also unlike the previous film, which was almost self-consciously shot for the big screen, this film is on a smaller scale, like a double-length episode of the series. But it's still a good reminder of the creepy vibe that hooked fans for years. And the relationship between Mulder and Scully? It seems to have resumed pretty much where it left off, at least when you take into account the long period of separation. But stick around for the end-credit sequence to take in all the possibilities for the future. --David Horiuchi, Amazon.com

When Chris Carter revealed the first footage from the new X-Files movie at this year's Comi-Con Festival 2008 in San Diego accompanied by stars David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson, it was greeted with crowds of hysteria by the festival's visitors. It showed Billy Connolly rushing through the deep snow atop a frozen lake, an FBI search team equipped with helicopters and Alsatians following behind him. He would drop to his knees and cry..."Its Here!.....Here!.....it's Here!". Great stuff I can tell you, and certainly enough to get you very excited about the prospect of the new movie.

Indeed, it's very appealing to see Duchovny and Anderson back on the screen together after 6 years since the show aired it's final episode. The X-Files show was always of a high quality, and the first X-Files movie, released in '95, was also very well produced. The same can be said this time. X-Files creator Chris Carter, making his feature debut, has put together a very detailed and original story for our intrepid heroes to unravel. This time around the story has nothing to do with the alien mythology: the thread that ran through the core of the series. Here we have a stand-alone mystery enabling those who've never seen the series to enjoy and appreciate what the X-Files was all about. This was a wise move by the creator. That it has been 6 years since the show finished, it is also entirely possible that there is a whole new audience that may not have even heard of the show - and therefore, may have been completely indifferent to Chris Carter serving up another round of his alien invasion conspiracy.

So.....Just what exactly is this new adventure about?

Six years since the exploits of Mulder and Scully came to an end after nine seasons. The second movie propels x-files into darker territory leaving alien conspiracy's on the back burner for a standalone adventure.

We catch up with Mulder and Scully now living together in a secluded house as Mulder browses newspaper articles looking for unexplained phenomenon and Scully has become a doctor at a catholic run hospital caring for a terminally ill boy when she is approached by the FBI, looking for Mulder to consult on a case, a female FBI agent has disappeared and a convicted paedophile priest father Joe claims to be having visions leading the FBI closer to their missing agent, Mulder reluctantly joins the search which leads to a grisly conclusion.

The X-files: I want to believe has received rather mixed reviews as a fan of the show I found it rather enjoyable but this doesn't seem to be the case with everyone. The x-files isn't a big flashy summer blockbuster its a grim mystery thriller. It goes back to its routes when the darker episodes lay rather than the more comedic centred episodes some of the later seasons took

It takes a very different tone from the first film, in an attempt to market it to a wider audience but it remains a largely fans only affair retaining classic X files flavour, on the whole the movie is about faith as both lead characters have their beliefs tested in search for the truth and it comes across the screen in a compelling form.

Duchovony and Anderson slip back into their roles with ease, the relationship between them starting as complete but as the movie progresses it threatens to tear itself apart as the pairs beliefs clash.

As with most people, I though that this would have a lot more weirdness and action. Then again, I was so confused by the ending of series 9, that I'll need to see it again to work out exactly what Mulder was fighting about, apart from "I believe and lots of people don't and they lied about it". So this film was like putting on an old pair of slippers. You don't expect much but they're comfortable. I wanted to say that Billy Connolly was excellent, but in fact he was not really given anything to get his teeth into. We had one scene between him and Scully where he questions the fact that paedophiles (well, the ones who ask for treatment, that is) medically dose themselves to fight off urges which are beyond their control. So if these urges are beyond their control, they come from....where? It would have been interesting to have had some debate between the god believer and the ex-priest (to whom the phrase "I want to believe" could also be applied), when he is now embittered by his relationship with god, but no. That spluttered out.

Why has Mulder got a beard? Tired cliche this, "I'm going to do something radical until the moment when I 'become' the character the fans have tuned in to see". Either have a beard or don't have one, show your transformation through acting instead.

"Don't give up" - very un-Scully like to have her giving up. She doesn't need people she doesn't believe in to say that to her, she's been through far more without giving up.

Not a lot of humour, shame, the Mulder quips are a little like hearing the same joke for the twentieth time. I only laughed at the pause before "Now I can't sleep".

I did cheer at the appearance of the only "Person at the FBI with balls". Too short an appearance.
