Fox Mulder (David Duchovny) and Dana Scully (Gillian Anderson) worked at the F.B.I. as partners, a bond between them that led to them becoming lovers. But now they're out of the F.B.I. 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 F.B.I. Agent.Written by
In The X Files (1998), Mulder saves Scully's life. In this one, she saves his. Since, in the show, Scully was put in danger much more frequently than Mulder, this could be seen as small payback. See more »

In Memoriam of the X-Files series
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
