X Files: Fight the Future

The X-Files

Although I liked both X Files movies, this one is the better of the two. I am not a huge TV watcher, and I think I have only seen one episode of X-Files on TV, so you don’t have to be a die hard fan to enjoy this film. I am sure there are things placed in there for the die hard fans, but, I wouldn’t know.

This a a very in depth plot dealing with the preservation of an alien virus and the elaborate cover up that ensues once the virus has leaked out. (Hope I didn’t describe every plot of the TV series…probably did, after all it is X Files.) Lots of fun details and very clever plot twists, any mystery fan will enjoy this one.

The performances were about what I expected, but a great job of quickly defining who the main characters are and what they are about. Again, taking into consideration viewers who may not be that familiar with the series. The conversation on the roof of the building defining Scully, and the first bar scene defining Mulder. Loved seeing Martin Landau (Best Supporting Actor Ed Wood) who is always wonderful and the great Armin Mueller-Stahl (Eastern Promises) with a small part.

This is good exciting movie making. Lots of fun with great action and suspense. I’ve watched this one over and over and never get bored with it.
