The X-Files: I Want to Believe
Mulder and Scully are back, six years after the end of their long-running television series. She's now a doctor, while he has become a recluse, bitter at the FBI. However, when an FBI agent goes missing, and they start using an apparantly psychic priest to track the agent down, the scene is set for experienced investigators. The FBI persuade Sculley to track Mulder down, to check out the priest. Meanwhile some Russian baddies with a penchant for body parts are also part of the plot, and possibly connected to the missing agent...

Adam Nayman quote iconThe X-Files: I Want to Believe is a major disappointment
5
Rolling Stone
Peter Travers quote iconI wanted to believe that X-Files creator Chris Carter, having had six years since the TV show went off the air to craft a humdinger of a plot, could conjure up something with more ding and less (ho) hum than The X-Files: I Want To Believe.

ScreenIt
quote iconNot horrible but nothing more than an extended and fairly humdrum and recycled episode from the original show.

Tomatometer quote iconThe chemistry between leads David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson do live up to The X-Files' televised legacy, but the roving plot and droning routines make it hard to identify just what we're meant to believe in.

What the People say

Internet
5746 Netizens quote iconThis X-Files movie episode isn't going to win any new fans over, but for X-philes, I'd bet we're probably just satisfied already with our heroes appearing in celluloid one more time, that no matter how wafer thin the plot is.
