The X-Files first big screen outing was met with joy and some disappointment, some finding it confusing where as other just were happy to see Mulder and Scully on the silver screen. Set between series 5 and 6, Mulder and Scully have been removed from the X-Files (since the cigarette smoking man (CSM) burning down the office at the end of series 5) and have been assigned to investigate a terrorist incident that ends up with the destruction of a government building. The investigations naturally evolves to aliens and the governments conspiracy to aid (or fight) colonisation of the planet. Most of the key players from the series make an appearance such as Skinner, CSM, The Lone Gunmen and the syndicate.

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.

Carefully! This movie has been designed to connect two consecutive seasons of the X-Files series and in fact it is just another episode. In order to enjoy it the viewer should have at least some basic knowledge of the series; unfortunately, the film makers didn't care much about explaining what is going on. Fans should find the plot interesting and this is the only reason why the movie deserves 3 stars. It reveals significant information about the government conspiracy (you'll need that information in the following seasons of the series).

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.

Made at the height of the X-Files fame, this film really is awesome. The only issue some may have is the fact that this film is a continuation of a story line already established in the series and casual viewers may find themselves lost trying to follow the plot.

...still an excellent movie that falls part way through the seasons.

Classic filler between seasons, end of season 6 I think.

Entertaining big budget version of the show with all the expected elements involved. Just a shame the climax boiled down to save the girl.

Enjoyed this adventure into the movie world for x files fans. It is a must see to understand the start of series 10 as it followed straight on from the film.

One for the fans. Has a bit of an extra long episode feel to it. But that's fine by me.
