X-Files I Want To Believe Movie Critique

Posted by LOTGK on August 4, 2008

I Wanted To Believe It Was A Good Movie

We walked into the theater for the much anticipated X-Files movie, I Want To Believe. The movie has been out one week and the buzz was not that good but being a big X-Files fan, we still made the trek to the theater.

As you can see from the picture above, we viewed the noon time showing. There were three people in the entire theater, including us. This was not a good sign.

The movie began and in the first 10 seconds, the familiar X-Files theme tune played. Alas, that was the best part of the movie. The very next thing I heard was the death knell signaling the end of the X-Files franchise.

What killed the movie and the franchise? First of all, the movie had absolutely nothing to do with the first movie or the previous 9 television seasons. No aliens. No UFO’s, no secret government society, no alien hybrids, not even a whiff of paranormal activity.

Instead, we get Mulder in a beard cast out of the FBI shacking up with Scully who left the FBI as well. Of course, for this movie, the FBI needs Mulder’s expertise on a case to find a missing agent. a psychic is leading them to crime scenes and he seems to know several pieces of information, but not enough to find the missing agent.

(Spoiler Alert!) In a nutshell, Mulder and Scully begin their investigation by following a crazy psychic on a wild goose chase. Several more people are killed, another is abducted, and still they are no closer to the truth.

In the end, Mulder and scully uncover several foreign doctors in rural West Virginia experimenting with stem cell regeneration to save a patient. Of course the experiments are taken to the extreme. In essence, the doctors create a modern day Frankenstein as the head of the patient has been transplanted onto a fresh disease free body. Hence, the missing agent who had the correct blood type needed for the transplant.

As for Father Joe, the excommunicated pedophile priest, of course his psychic gift is debunked and only Mulder believes him. (At least one person wants to believe) He dies from lung cancer suddenly at the end to tie up loose ends.

The movie ends with Mulder and Scully saving the abducted woman and Mulder and Scully kiss and left us pondering what their next move might be.

One thing is for certain. Don’t do another X-Files movie.

    Thanks for the heads up. I was looking for some honest reviews, and let me tell you, you pulled no punches. I was hoping they would continue the alien hybrid conspiracy.

    I didnt read the spoiler alert. I was afraid that they would butcher it 😦

    I saw it. On a Saturday night, there were about 50 people. Not a big files fan so I didn’t understand the chemistry between the two. I wouldn’t go see it again.
