Reel Movie Reviews: The X-Files: I Want to Believe

by at . Comments
Sorry, fans of The X-Files. But the latest film version of the iconic television series isn't receiving rave reviews.

Here are a look at some of the latest...

- For the uninitiated, The X Files: I Want to Believe may seem as musty and forbidding as one of those dank secrets that Mulder and Scully were forever digging up from some backyard, or fetid swamp, or their own aching hearts... -- Time Magazine

- Director/franchise creator Chris Carter gives devoted fans plenty of small moments to swoon over, but the appeal should be limited beyond those fervent loyalists... -- Variety

International X-Files Poster

- A movie that benefits from -- but doesn't make very good use of -- the history and the chemistry between its stars, David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson... -- The Orlando Sentinel

- The plot is mundane and seems pieced together from bits from (better) episodes of this now defunct TV show... -- Sci-Fi Movie Page
