This movie was not what some expected.
All in all it had a good plot, some great acting and script that asks some good xfiles like questions.
The problem for some, was the tv show feeling that oozed out after halfway through.
Not that this is a bad thing, I mean it seems like a really good 2 or 3 part episode of the show. Not a movie.
After viewing the show once again, a few changes seemed necessary to carry the movie through.
Less reveal of the antagonist, less wordy love speeches between the two, and a few small cuts here and there bring forth more of a movie feeling.
Now I get what Cris Carter was going for. An x files movie that asks some questions by using a script that brushes what xfiles is about, at the core.
Sometimes it's about believing, even though everything says otherwise.
