The X-Files: Fight the Future

Contrary to what many said previously to the arrival of The X-Files: Fight the Future, the casual viewer should be able to follow its plot. The sci-fi concept of this film (I will be hunted down by rogue government agents if I reveal what it is) should be universally intriguing. I think that most people should enjoy this slick thriller.

The same casual viewer however, may not be as involved in the film as an X-phanatic. The relationship between Agent Mulder (David Duchovny) and Agent Scully (Gillian Anderson) may not interest them as much as it will X-tremist. The rookie X-filist won’t care whether Scully and Mulder kiss, while a veteran may see the film solely for that purpose. But the film will work anyway

Having seen nearly every episode of the TV series, I must tell you I loved the movie. I was ecstatic at the answers Chris Carter gave to some of the questions that the series posed over the years. And here I was thinking that while I was intrigued by the questions I’d be dissapointed by the answers. Quite the contrary, I now am only more anxious for season 6 to start.

I don’t think I need to say much about the performances — Duchovny and Anderson are both solid actors with Golden Globes under their belt who have been with the show for 5 years. They are both game as FBI agents.

So, while all should enjoy it, most X-files fans will adore it. It’s a great way to relieve the anxiety that the series’ endless mysteries have built.
