Chris Carter originally planned to make this movie right after the end of the TV series, and use it to end the alien invasion storyline. Since production was delayed for over five years, Carter decided to focus on a standalone mystery in order to make the movie appealing to people who weren't familiar with the show's mythology, leaving the invasion subplot for a possible third film.

The X-Files Series is dead, and this THE X-FILES: I WANT TO BELIEVE is its burial ceremony! My hopes weren't very high but I was expecting something better after all these years. Make a second film for that? Why? Any regular episode of the series is better than this "large episode" The fans of the series might like it and I don't blame them, but in fact I think this film was totally unnecessary.
Well, the main topic of the plot ("the Frankenstein doctor" ) is not bad, but all the rest is not that good, at all! The film is too slowly paced, the action scenes are just a few and not well done, the main characters are truly old and wasted, and there's a subplot that seems to increase nothing to the movie except drama, cheap drama!
Rest In Peace X-Files Series
