X FILES: I WANT TO BELIEVE
I have been waiting for this
film anxiously since the film was announced. After a ten
year run "The X Files" is one of the best television shows
that I have seen, with the addition of "Lost" of course. The
first thing that I wanted to know was the release day. To
my surprise it was Summer 2008. I was skeptical about the
film being released in the Summer. As many people know
the Summer is for films with tremendous production budgets,
big explosions, and unbelievable special effects these
characteristics are just not part of this film.
that in mind, I embarked on my own mysterious search for the
truth. As a fan of the show, I was pleased with this movie
Carter and his team brought back the mystery, the writing
and messages of believing, that only "The X Files"
brought for many years to me and many people around the
It has been six years since the last episode and it was
rewarding to see Fox Mulder and Dana Scully back together in
a mysterious investigation combining the paranormal with the real world.
This film plays very
similar to an extended "The X Files" regular episode, and it still has plenty
writing, strong performance, mystery and tension that makes
this show a classic. No big explosions not
special effects, just pure mystery and tension. Chris Carter kept the essence
of what the show is about. It brings enough material
to appreciate once more the chemistry between David Duchovny
Gillian Anderson performing these characters. Mulder still thinks about
his sister and Scully stills argues with Mulder about faith
and believe in the paranormal world.
Many people will criticize
this film, because it doesn't present anything new. It
is the same concept, but for me "The X
Files: I Want to Believe" was not about bringing anything
new to the table. It was more about keeping the concept and
not disappointing the millions of fans around the world.
There is no doubt that is
going to be tough for this film to make a big splash at the
box office. Maybe a November or December release would have
helped the film make some noise at the box office.
I want to believe that is going to be a hit, because
regardless of the fact that Chris Carter did not brought
anything new to the table with this film, I still want more
"X Files" films.

People Movie Review The X
X Files 2; To Really enjoy this film,
you have to be a true fan of the show
otherwise you will miss the real meaning
of the plot. Mulder and Scully together
again. A dream come true after all this
years. A real creepy thriller, enough
said. Long live The X files and do not
forget the "Truth is still out there"
save your money........ it wasnt worth
the 8 bucks............ its a real
shame, i was hoping for something
better............... It was made by the
same people, same directors, same
writers, same everything, and yet they
couldent make a decent movie out of it ?
its pretty sad.... it was so long and
drawn out and made no sense at all. the
tittle was i want to believe, yet after
watching the movie i asked myself what
was it, that we were supposed to believe
in ? the
really stupid part was that they laid
the groundwork for a sequal ? when
they told Scully "dont give up" i
just hope they let the show fade away,
no more x files movies, no mas, not when
its this bad..........
