This is the second movie based on the hit Fox television series. While the first movie that was released in 1998 was a culmination of events that took place throughout the series, this version was more like a stand alone episode. There were no big conspiracies, no government cover-ups or anything like that. Just one very creepy case.
For those of you that are already familiar with the X-Files series, then this movie should fit well with you. It's just like watching a longer episode from the television series.
If you are not familiar with the series, this movie might make you a fan. Even though you might not be familiar with some of the historical references that come up in the movie, the case itself and the acting were all well enough to make you enjoy the mystery. And there is very little science fiction in this movie. There are a few references, of course, but nothing like the first movie with aliens, and spaceships, and pods.
What I liked:
Reminded me of the series
A few really creepy moments
What I didn't like:
Not enough action at times
Overall, I give this movie 3 quarters out of 4 quarters. It certainly wasn't bad or boring. It was actually pretty decent. But nothing to go crazy about.
