Follows making of the revival of The X-Files to television after a long 13 year commercial break. Covers the bulk of creative decisions and production stories from the 6 episodes as filmed ... See full summary »
The X-Files' Lone Gunmen, their action-loving man-childish sidekick and patron, Jimmy Bond, and their sexy master thief frienemy, Yves, investigate crimes and conspiracies, often in a silly, comedic and over the top fashion.
Fox Mulder and Dana Scully both worked at the FBI as partners, a bond between them that led to their becoming lovers. But now they're out of the FBI and have begun new careers. Scully works as a staff physician at a Catholic hospital. Her focus these days is on a young boy with an incurable brain disease. Administration wants to give up on him. Scully, who feels a special bond with the boy, does not. Meanwhile, Mulder's focus is on clipping newspaper articles, throwing pencils into his ceiling and writing about the paranormal. Scully and Mulder are brought together as partners again when a special case requires Mulder's expertise and Scully is prevailed upon to convince him to help. The case involves a pedophile priest who claims he is having psychic visions regarding the whereabouts of a missing FBI agent. Written by

Scully? Why would he say that?
[he pauses then follows Scully to her car]
"Don't give up." Why would he say such a thing to you?
I think that was clearly meant for you, Mulder.
He didn't say it to me. He said it to you.
If Father Joe were the devil, why would he say the opposite of what the devil might say?
[she doesn't reply, though clearly attempting to rationalize]
Maybe that's the answer. You know, the larger answer.
What do you mean?

I was reading some comments about this movie and One guy said it was Great! Later, I understood why. He just had watched 3 chapters before this movie. So, for him it was a logical, interesting movie. For people who is a real fan of this series is a total disappointment. The characters could have been "John and Mary Smith" and nothing would happen. This is not even an "X File". It is not related with any of the cases that we used to watch neither with any of the characters we used to see. This might have been just a "regular chapter" from the series. There are ANY spectacular scenes like in the first movie. This is just a plain, boring, movie and Mulder and Scully are there just by chance. I think this could have been more successful if the story would be about two FBI characters and avoiding Mulder and Scully. I feel cheated.
