|True to characters..Chemistry Driven...Does it's job!|

rosest: I appreciate film as 'Art in motion'. In short, I look to what the film is meant to do and how it accomplishes its task. This film is true to the state where the main characters, Mulder and Scully, would likely be, given where they were placed at the series end, and where they might stand in current time. A fragile balancing act was merged into a suspenseful (although not scary) mesh of subplots along with translating into human reality the tensions of two individuals surviving the darkness of their past. Both Anderson and Duchovny got the chemistry back and it showed in some special scenes where facial expressions seemed cut from a captured X-files episode. This film is no Dark Knight nor the CGI sequel that rises solely on one actor's, Heath Ledger’s, performance. It stands as a tribute to two fine characters and is very well acted. Unlike Batman, these two characters could NOT be portrayed by anyone other than Gillian and David as it wouldn’t work. If fate ends the big screen presence of Mulder & Scully with the scene at the end of the long credits, it would be an X-file in itself?

MovieFanAttic: I don't care how you reviewed this, this is a GREAT X-files movie. Regardless of the lack of ETs, this movie delivers to fans. I loved the X-files series on TV and I love the movies. When Skinner appeared on screen I had a mental orgasm, I would highly recommend this movie!
