Are you asking me to give up?
No. I can't tell you to do that, Mulder. But I can tell you that I won't be coming home.

I'm not a big fan of X-Files. I think this movie is for the fans. If you have never watched the series, don't watch the movie. As a stand-alone movie, it's very poor. For the fans, the movie is great, because they get some answers (and more questions) about the relation between Dana and Fox. You can also see other characters of the series.
About the story itself, it's very basic. It could contain a lot of more mystery and action, but it's predictable and simple. The reaction of the characters are not consequent, you see the story changing every five minutes without any explanation. The action is so basic. There are some good episodes in the series that are better than this movie.
