Trivia

The desert area with Dallas in the distance isn't real. A composite shot was used to make the effect. The Dallas area is actually very green and hilly, as is most of north Texas. These scenes were filmed in the high desert north of Los Angeles. See more »

Goofs

The film opens 35-40.000 years ago with Neanderthal men exploring an underground cavern. No scientific study every done suggest that human beings (even primitive ones) ever existed in the Americas prior to 18-20 thousand years ago. And since there is a definitive trail of human settlement from what is now Alaska down to North and South America, human beings wouldn't have been in North Texas until 8-10 thousand years ago at the earliest.

This movie is very good.Its deep,its clever,its very interesting,and entertaining.I just really like how Mulder and Scully are.The situations they get in make you care about them especially Scully.Martin Landau,William B. Davis,Mitch Pileggi,Jeffrey DeMunn,Terry O'Quinn,and Armin Mueller-Stahl were all good!The music is good and the direction and editing is superb.X-Files: Fight the Future is really a classic movie and I feel its one of the best films ever!
