The formula on this one is simple. If you liked the television series, you will probably like this movie. if you are unfamiliar with Mulder and Scully, this will be a boring and lame movie for you. I was a big X Files fan at one time, so I mildly enjoyed it, but it felt more like a long X Files Episode than a movie, almost as if Chris Carter (the writer and director who I believe to be very talented BTW) was bored or just needed some $$. He is capable of better.
