Some fans of the original X-Files show were angry that the show's main antagonist, the Cigarette Smoking Man, was never included in the movie. However, because the Smoking Man died in the last season of The X-Files, it wouldn't have made sense to bring the character back for the movie, although he was in the 1998 X-Files movie, Fight to the Future.

Before I went to see this movie, I had seen 3 episodes of the TV show, despite having grown up with the series. One episode I saw when I was 9, and 2 just this week, when I decided to try the show out to see if I liked it. The first two episodes drew me in, and even though I thought I would be confused by the movie, I went to see it anyway.
Needless to say, I was not confused that much at all. The story was great, and I found myself drawn right into the characters despite not having seen much of their interaction previously. There was enough action and suspense to keep the story moving, and everyone in the cinema seemed to enjoy it.
When I left the cinema, all I wanted to do was go home and watch more episodes of the TV show, which was probably the intention of the producers of the film; to draw interest back into the series, which is what they achieved.
So, for me, as someone who hadn't watched the television show, I enjoyed the movie, as did my sister who had never seen an episode in her life. I definitely recommend it! Two thumbs up!
