The X-Files: I Want To Believe (DVD)

Mulder and Scully are back! After waiting over 10 years, we finally get to see a second X-Files film. With the cult following this show had, I think a lot of high expectations were set. Now, if you’re one of those fans that got disappointed after seeing this, I can understand. Waiting this long for another X-Files movie only to find out it has nothing to do with aliens can be a bummer. But wait! I know that the whole alien conspiracy played a big role in the TV series, but that’s not all it was about. Don’t forget that there were lots of other cases that dealt with different types of phenomena. From what I remember, some cases happened to involve psychics. And it’s a psychic that plays an important part in this film. When a FBI agent goes missing, Mulder and Scully are called back in to help with the investigation. Mulder is more reluctant to help, but that changes quickly as he gets more involved. However, they aren’t the only ones who are recruited to assist the FBI. A former priest named "Father Joe" has some kind of psychic connection to the crimes and his visions provide huge clues in this mystery. What follows is a race to save the ones who are missing, leading up to a disturbing twist at the end. Personally, I thought this was a great film. It really had that X-Files feel to it, even without the aliens. If you didn't see it yet, the DVD is out now. Along with the film, the 2-disc set boasts an impressive 3 hours of special features.
