Have to say, disappointed. Without giving too much away, it wasn't what I expected. Mulder and Scully are an excellent team. We root for them. Given the lapse in time since the last movie and the TV show's first run, you would think the movie would not thwart 'expectations' so often and gleefully. But it does... and not in a good way.
Director Chris Carter still knows how to expertly create a mood oozing dread and darkness. That's the good news. But unlike the first time out, The X-files: I Want to Believe does not take its characters or the audience out of the darkness. Instead, it leaves everyone on screen and in the theater wondering what is the point to believing. And, more importantly, had this Flick Chick wondering, why didn't I just stay home and watch more of the old X-files episodes that were "marathon-ing" on cable?
