Jimmy's Buzz Guide Review:
This supernatural thriller is little more than an extended version of the former television series. But die-hard fans will at least enjoy seeing Mulder and Scully reunited.

The X-Files: I Want to Believe
The veterans of the successful television series and first feature film, former FBI agent Fox Mulder (David Duchovny "Things We Lost in the Fire"), always assigned to investigate unexplained cases, is summoned out of professional exile along with his skeptical partner doctor Dana Scully (Gillian Anderson "The Last King of Scotland") who is currently involved in trying to save the life of a young boy with serious brain disease. They are convinced to join forces and solve one more case. Mulder becomes intrigued when he meets the convicted pedophile priest Father Joe (Billy Connolly "The Last Samurai") whose apparent psychic powers lead the FBI to a grisly scene. When a second woman goes missing, the urgency intensifies but Mulder's willingness to get involved is shaken by the inexplicable circumstances they discover. Mulder and Scully are assigned to work with two current FBI agents (Amanda Peet "Syriana" and rapper Alvin "Xzibit" Joiner "Derailed"), who's dismissive of Mulder and his reliance on the rantings of the psychic priest.

When body parts are found buried all over the place, it becomes clear that there's a serial killer loose. It seems a group of renegade Russian doctors are trying to save someone's life from an incurable disease by attaching that person's head onto a body stitched together from various body parts. Without giving too much plot away, the movie directed by the creator of the TV series Chris Carter (who also wrote and produced with longtime collaborator Frank Spotnitz) still features the inherent spookiness of the supernatural that became the staple of the television series.

The story is revealed slowly until the full ugliness of the events become clear. Tension mounts with the ever-constant barking of dogs, and the contrast of wintry white settings with the grimy dark events taking place on the screen. It is mostly the imponderables that propel the story and die-hard fans will undoubtably enjoy it, particularly the re-teaming of Mulder and Scully. But basically, this supernatural thriller is little more than an extended version of the long-running television series.
