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?

The film is boring, the plot is very simple (like this comment). There isn't action or scary moments. I think that Chris Carter (the director), Frank Spotnitz and Chris Carter (writters)had forgot that x-files is supposed to be a sci-fiction movie. This movie was like view a bad and long episode of the TV series but worst.
The ambient and the music is perfect, the characters are very well, like always. David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson are the perfect couple. They act like real FBI agents, but the emotional scenes are quite unpleasant (like always).
The film isn't enough to satisfied any fan of the x-files series.
I felt disappointed.
