Overview

Despite not completely overcoming the limitations of converting one of the '90s most complex and fully realized series into a two-hour big-screen feature, X-Files: The Movie translates into a substantial DVD with some interesting extras. The disc presents the film in a widescreen transfer with Dolby Digital Surround and 5.1 Audio, and includes bonuses such as a commentary track with director Rob Bowman and series creator/writer Chris Carter, a 40-minute "making of" featurette, three theatrical trailers, and some brief extra footage. Like the film itself, the DVD may not provide enough of The X-Files' intricate world to satisfy diehard fans completely, but they'll still find something to like among its many features.

    Absolutely LOVE IT!

    I am HUGE fan of The X Files. The first episode played when I was like 6. I didn't start watching it until I was in middle school. Me, my older sister and my dad started renting old episodes and watching the new ones every Sunday night. I was obsessed with it. Then, after the shows end in 2002- I was over it. But now that I just got the DVD set, I am in love with it all over again. My little brother watches the reruns with me every night in order. The movie that they made based on the show is outstanding! I love it! I have the VHS and just ordered the DVD. I know every word to the movie and cant watch it enough. One of my favorite scenes is the famous "hallway scene" I love the tense emotion that is shown between the 2 characters. I give this movie 2 thumbs up!! (And I give David Duchovny 3)I cant wait for the sequel!!!!

    One of the greatest films made in the 20'th century.

    What better way to describe the X Files movie and tv show than to call it absolutly incredible. Words simply cannot explain the power and devotion between the two characters Mulder and Scully. I myself am a Die hard fan of the show so I may be a little biased but I found the movie to be outstanding. The acting is incredible, the directing emmy worthy, and the effects are "out of this world". I was stunned by the plot change of the movie campared to what had been going on for the past five season. My only worry before watching it is that people who had not seen the show before would be utterly confused. However this was not the case, Chris Carter and Frank Spotnitz did such a good job with the writing that even I was understading the tv shows plot better than before. If I could I would give this movie 4 thumbs up! My only issue with the movie is that it had to end.

I would always hope Mulder would make a move on Scully when I was little.Gosh,why didn't he?It would've been great! I believe he does in the movie,right?

    Awesome Movie

    To tell the truth, the 6th and 7th season made me fall in love with this series, hands down. I was so bummed that just one season is like $100. Imagine how I felt upon finding this movie in my basement. I can nearly quote the entire movie now. Definitely ranking in my top 3! Cheap, but so worth it.
