It grows on you.,
This review is from: X-Files - I Want To Believe (1-Disc Edition) [DVD] (DVD)
I think the biggest problem with this movie has nothing to do with the movie itself. Sky high expectations were the real problem. This movie really does deserve to be judged on it's own merits.
After my first viewing of this movie I was somewhat disappointed. Like many X-Files fans I was expecting a big budget block buster continuation of the alien invasion mythos storyline. Instead we got a little self-contained story that kind of lacks that "big screen" feeling. In fact, in a number of ways, it feels more like an ordinary episode of the X-Files. But on subsequent viewings I began to appreciate it more and more, and eventually began to warm to it and like it a lot. It may not be the movie everyone wanted, but it does have a charm all of it's own. In my opinion it is a worthy addition to the X-Files.

the fact is It was suppose to be a stand-alone film, they purposely set it away from the series, I for one love the movie and I've been a X-filer since its debut.
