The X-Files: I Want to Believe Movie Review

Scully and Mulder are back in this new installment of The X-Files. Probably one of the most successful shows on television has decided to come back with another movie to carry on it's legend. Fortunately they brought back David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson to play their roles again. Many of us fans have been waiting a long time to see another X-Files. Chris Carter is once again directing as well as writ ting this feature film.

This film isn't like the previous one, there is no black ooze and the conspiracy of aliens isn't a part of it. This is back to some of the old originals that deals with some strange occurrences that lead them to call Fox Mulder back into the FBI to help them solve the case. Mulder was a wanted man and this will give him his freedom. The story starts off with an FBI agent getting attacked outside her home and a strange priest leads the FBI to a buried arm that is connected to the disappearance of the agent.

Billy Connolly plays Father Joseph Crissman, a former priest who was convicted of child molestation and now lives in a halfway house to help heal. He gets visions of the woman and leads the FBI to an Arm and then eventually to a whole series of body parts to open up a really strange case.

Amanda Peet plays agent Dakota Whitney, who is fascinated with the works of Fox Mulder and brings him back into the game. Hip Hop star Xzibit plays Whitney's partner Mosley Drummy. So no smoking man or other mystery men in this one, just pure strange stuff and a hunt ot find the missing woman.

Without giving too much away all I can tell you is that Mulder and Scully are in a relationship at the start of this film, you will have to see it to know where it goes from there.

This one has some good twists and turns and keeps you thinking through out. Mulder and Scully were awesome as always and Chris Carter once again put together a good film. Even Skinner makes an appearance as well.

Check this one while it's still in the theaters if you can.

Rating: 3 1/2 out of 5
