Agents Mulder and Scully (David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson) make their big-screen debut as they attempt to locate the source of a deadly virus, possibly brought to earth by aliens thirty-seven thousand years ago. As usual, their investigation reveals a potential FBI-cover up, brings them into contact with conspiracy theorists (this time a paranoid doctor (Martin Landau)) and leads them to the door of the all-powerful, yet anonymous, Syndicate. Contains interviews with the stars and previously unseen footage.

Millennium, producer-writer Chris Carter's follow-up series to The X Files, never quite matched its elder sibling's audience appeal. In the US, it ran for three series but was cancelled before the millennium, cheating it of an apocalyptic finale. This is why semi-psychic FBI profiler Frank Black, played by star Lance Henriksen (owner of one of the most craggily expressive faces on television), pops up in the XF iles episode named "Millennium" to resolve some, if not all, of his show's dangling story.
Along with this X Files-crossover, this VHS also includes the final episodes of Millennium ("Via Dolorosa", "Goodbye to All That"),which may bewilder UK fans since the latter show's second and third seasons haven't aired here. The Millennium wind-up has Frank Black on the trail of a killer who has copied the methods of a just-executed madman, while sub-plots about the mysterious Millennium Group abound. The X-Files episode has Mulder and Scully hauling Black out of an asylum in the last days of 1999 to advise them when ex-FBI agents who have committed suicide are raised from the dead as zombie horsemen of the apocalypse. This is also the show in which Mulder and Scully finally kiss, albeit for the New Year bells. There's also plenty of strong-meat horror drama and meaningful glances between characters who know more than is good for them, but don't expect anything like narrative closure. The unresolved plot threads pile up on the floor like spilled spaghetti at the end. --Kim Newman --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

On the whole the film is very good and extends the groundwork laid in the series for a new direction of conspiracy and colonisation, as you can only fight so many mutants of nature, yet it doesn't fully alienate (had to) those new to the show framework. The Blu-Ray video and audio quality is as you would expect for a recent release on excellent form. You also have the theatre and directors cuts of the film and some behind the scenes features regarding the music, effects and transition to the big screen from TV.
Surprisingly, the movie lacks the depth and engrossing atmosphere of the series. The cigarette man's character is totally wasted - in the series he's so interesting and important, while in the movie he is no more than a shadow. And something is definitely wrong with the pace of the movie. Sometimes everything just happens too fast. The dialogs are not particularly interesting. Picture and sound quality are not particularly good. Some films made before the II World War look better on DVD than this one.
