The Good: - Duchovny, Anderson, and Connelly all deliver excellent performances. Mulder and Scully are still fun to watch. - The atmosphere of the show is very much kept intact. - The surprise appearance of a series regular is a great addition to the finale of the movie. - The Scully Subplot was done very well. - The few action sequences are well done. - It explains what happened to Mulder and Scully.
The Bad: - Xzibit\'s character is as one dimensional as a piece of paper. - The plot is very weak due to it being incredibly simplistic. - It\'s slow pace will turn off many. - It feels made for T.V, almost exactly like an episode from season 7. They should\'ve made it a 2 hour special on T.V instead. - It\'s way more of a Drama film than a Sci Fi thriller, which is misleading since the previews showed otherwise.
Overall: I had mixed thoughts when leaving the theater. Though it was slightly disappointing and underwhelming, it was still a good movie, especially for X Files fans. Duchovny and Anderson have not lost a step and deserve either another season to close up the series or another movie. I\'m leaning more towards the former, as the movies have illustrated that Carter excels far more in a T.V environment.
