FBI agent Drummy arrives to ask Scully’s help in locating Fox Mulder, the fugitive former head of the X-Files division, and says they will call off its manhunt for him if he will help investigate the disappearances of several women, including young FBI agent Monica Banan.

Not bad but you'll be disappointed that Mulder and Scully don't even work together. She is just a surgeon who only cares about using stem cell research to save a sick boy. While Mulder works with the F.B.I. on a Frankstein like case looking for a killer who is killing people for limbs. So yeah, the first movie is much better.

This is a weird one for me... I didn't especially care for this one when I saw it the first time, but when I saw a few years later it was an ok distraction. Now? Well...after just finishing season nine of the series, this is actually quite good, but that isn't really the truth since the ninth season of the X-files is a shit show of preposterous dimensions. When the show was at its prime, I Want to Believe is a mediocre episode at the worst and a filler at best. Yet...It has its moments, and Gillian Anderson is as lovely as ever, so it's not a total disaster. If you are a fan of the series it's required viewing. If not you can safely skip it.

The movie itself isn`t that bad. It just isn´t that much of an x-files movie. And this is not because it hasn´t got any of the mythology of the series. The story would have worked with two generic FBI Agents instead of Mulder and Scully. But I liked the scenes they both had together this did something for the whole story of the charasters and their relationship.

"X-Files: I Want To Believe" was received poorly by many because it didn't advance the popular "aliens are here" story line. This movie is a one-shot story like many of the episodes were during the original run of the TV series. The X-Files TV series successfully merged the anthology format with a More
