X-Files Series Episode 1

We can’t handle (or understand) the truth.

Federal buildings being bombed, FEMA plotting to overthrow the government, and extra-terrestrials plotting with The Syndicate to turn the human race into drone slaves. In the 90’s, this dense mystery made up the heart of The X-Files television show, where agents Mulder and Scully investigated paranormal activities and uncovered a plot by aliens to take over the earth. With a hardcore audience of fans, in 1998 The X-Files took the leap to the big screen, hoping to appease old fans and bring in new ones. Does this work as a stand-alone film, and does raising the stakes to the big screen pay off for fans? Listen to find out!

    I saw this movie in the theatre when it came out. I wasn’t a big X-Files fan to the point where I stuck with it but really enjoyed the movie. I like the fact that your review revealed some major flaws in the storyline but I liked it for the serious tone it established with Dallas (where I live) and some of the obscure details of the area they pointed out. At the same time, it gave me the kind of escapism I look for when I go to the movies. I will admit though that I was checking under my car for explosives before going home.
