David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson reprise their roles as Agents Mulder and Scully in director Chris Carter's cut of this supernatural thriller. The film begins with the mysterious disappearance of a group of women in Virginia. The FBI calls Mulder and Scully back to duty to investigate and they are led to a priest, Father Joseph Crissman (Billy Connolly), who is having strange visions. Father Crissman's unusual apparitions subsequently lead Mulder and Scully to a bizarre secret medical experiment which may have a connection with the women's disappearance.
The feature film The X-Files: I Want to Believe is a satisfying if unspectacular installment in the X-Files series, taking place an unspecified time after the show's nine-year television run. Former agent Dana Scully (Gillian Anderson) is now a doctor, while Fox Mulder (David Duchovny) is being hunted by his former agency and living in seclusion. He and Scully are summoned back by a case involving a missing agent and a former priest (Billy Connolly) who claims to be able to see clues to the agent's whereabouts psychically, though his initial search turns up only a severed limb.Don't expect the usual cast of characters; the FBI has completely turned over (except for the George W. Bush portrait), and the only reason Scully and Mulder are back is because agent Dakota Whitney (Amanda Peet) remembers his success on similar cases involving the inexplicable. Don't expect the same rogues' gallery either; unlike the previous X-Files feature film, which was inextricably linked to the series' convoluted mythology arc (and served as a bridge between the fifth and sixth seasons), I Want to Believe is a stand-alone piece that makes use of the series' roots in horror/sci-fi and moody Vancouver, B.C., locales. Also unlike the previous film, which was almost self-consciously shot for the big screen, this film is on a smaller scale, like a double-length episode of the series. But it's still a good reminder of the creepy vibe that hooked fans for years. And the relationship between Mulder and Scully? It seems to have resumed pretty much where it left off, at least when you take into account the long period of separation. But stick around for the end-credit sequence to take in all the possibilities for the future. --David Horiuchi, Amazon.com --Ce texte fait référence à l'édition DVD.

Fight the Future is a classic X-Files aliens conspiracy theory and works as a stand-alone plot although being familiar with the show will probably increase the enoyment of the viewer. I Want to Believe is suprisingly good; I feel that it has some similarities to Silence of the Lambs. An FBI agent goes missing, and they come seeking help from a former agent, none other than Mulder while at the same time engaging the help of a psychic who is having visions of the abduction. You may think of trying to catch the abductor as trying to catch Buffalo Bill. And the motive of the abductor is just as horrifying as that of Buffalo Bill. Since this is an X-Files, there is the element of psychic powers and pyschic connections between the key characters and some sci-fi elements alll of which come together quite nicely. I think it is a very well-written story full of suspense. Even the subplot about Scully's trying to save a patient's life with a drastic treatment method fits perfectly well within the construct of the plot and drives the point home.
I was surprised to see the low rating for "I Want to Believe" on IMDB and especially on RottenTomatoes (31% - they must be out of their minds to give such a low rating, especially when they give such high ratings to movies that are contrived cliches at best). My recommendation is don't be fooled by the low ratings and see for yourself. If you are an X-Files fan, you will definitely enjoy these movies. And even if you are not a fan, I still think you will enjoy them as someone who appreciates sci-fi and horror.
