The X-Files Movie

FBI agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully, who investigate incidents that defy logical or scientific explanation, race across the country and literally to the ends of the Earth to uncover the secret of a black ooze entity that uses human bodies as hosts. The film focuses more on the action-packed elements of evading and combatting conspiring government figures rather than examining the potential ramifications and apocalyptic significance.

Claire Nicole: Hail C.C & D.D & G.A

Nick Soper: A very good movie. Lived up to the standard set by the series. Excellent special FX.

André Mes: Essentially a longer, budget extended episode of the TV series that (fortunately) answers more of the series' many mysteries than creating any new ones. Great performances and a sparkling script from creator, Chris Carter, buoy this exciting and, at times, rather chilling continuation for the fight for the truth!

Bennie de Klerk: Gaan kyk hierdie fliek en jy sal 'n idee kry waaroor X-Files nou eintlik gaan. Ek wonder of Scully NOU vir Mulder glo? Regtig 'n baie goeie fliek!

Gideon Jacobs: Great for HORROR.

Arnold Dreyer: The ending is overdone.

Niki Pretorius: As we are far behind America with the series, this movie answers some questions about the series. Special effects are good, and for a hopeless romantic like me, Mulder and Scully come as close to admitting having feelings for each other as they can without putting an end to the X-files. I loved the movie.

Craig Nicholson: Similar to Deep Impact but cool.

Herman Potgieter: It's a very good movie.

Leanne Harris: Brilliant! I love this movie, definitely one for the permanent collection.
