REVIEW: The X-Files: I Want to Believe

Synopsis: When a group of women are abducted in the wintry hills of rural Virginia, the only clues to their disappearance are the grotesque human remains that begin to turn up in snow banks along the highway. With officials desperate for any lead, a disgraced priest's questionable visions send local police on a wild goose chase and straight to a bizarre secret medical experiment that may or may not be connected to the women's disappearance. Its a case right out of The X-Files. But the FBI closed down its investigations into the paranormal years ago. And the best team for the job is ex-agents Fox Mulder and Dr. Dana Scully, who have no desire to revisit their dark past. Still, the truth of these horrific crimes is out there somewhere...and it will take Mulder and Scully to find it!

My Review: I am not a fan of the TV show and I vaguely remember the first movie. So I went into this movie with an open mind and no expectations but exited it with the same feelings as when I entered …nothing. It wasn’t a half bad movie but it didn’t do anything for me. If you are a fan you may like it more than I did. As a avoid movie fan and a partial movie buff I don’t recommended it. BUT fans of X-Files and “nerds” alike could have a good time and may enjoy it. Besides that small demographic I see this film not doing that great. This film fit into the So-So category of film with Handcock being near the top of the list and X-files near the bottom.
