The X-Files: I Want to Believe

Jays Rating:

There has already been one film based on the award winning television show The X-Files and Scully and Mulder are back together again in the Sci-fi, thriller X-Files, I Want To Believe. When the F.B.I. need help finding a missing agent they contact Scully played by Gillan Anderson who is no longer in the F.B.I and tell her to ask Mulder played by David Duchovny who also is no longer in the F.B.I. to help with the investigation. Of course Mulder helps (There wouldn’t be a movie if he didn’t) and they are pulled into an abnormal case involving psychopaths, severed limbs and the paranormal. If you like a good thriller you will probably enjoy this film but it doesn’t really remind me of one of the television shows. David Duchovny was right at home as Mulder and was able to add some passion into the film but Gillian Anderson didn’t seem to be able to jump back into character as easy. The studio wanted to keep everything secretive to hype the movie because there was no big plot to intrigue the viewer. No aliens, no UFO’s, nothing super natural and nothing to remember the next day about the story. In fact the plot fading so fast I think I’m involved in some X-files and I’m a blind guy that’s reviewing movies. I wanted to believe that this would be a fantastic film but it’s just mediocre and I’m giving it a C rating.

This movie has been given a PG13 rating by the MPAA

Although I am blind, I can appreciate a good movie as well as sighted individuals.
I rely more on a good story line than special effects.
