An amazing big screen adaption of the popular and absorbing T.V. series....

This big screen adaption of the phenomenally popular T.V. series is nothing short of brilliant it has all the makings of a fantastic Sci-Fi thriller and a great conspiracy thriller all wrapped up into one sinister little package.

The X-Files: Fight the Future is not an oscar worthy film but it is a great one on it's own as a stand alone it would have done fantastically but it's tie to the series' plot keeps it chained down from busting loose and showing it's true stuff. But it does good with what it's already established it brings to the Sci-Fi genre , like The Matrix did, seeing as it is The Matrix predecessor in Sci-Fi greatness. This film, in my opinion, set the benchmark for conventional Sci-Fi and turned it into what we see now.

This movie I was hesitant to see at first but after watching the first three seasons I thought i should at least give it a try and boy was I blow away. It's a mystifying and malicious experience in the art of conspiracy and deceit and it moves along at a very steady and easy pace that you can easily keep up with and a story you can understand and follow as it plays out. This is the kind of film that keeps you guessing and guessing till the end it never let's up with the intrigue and the tension, it brings so much to the table and you have no choice but to eat it all up one small morsel at a time that so good you can't resist, this film also gives you a gritter side to The X-files adventure that you didn't see in the series it puts the agent's in more peril and danger then they have ever been in before and that is also another factor that contributed to this films success.

But when it comes down to it there is probably nothing bad you can say in this films honor, it's just to good to put down. The X-Files: Fight the Future is great fun and it's a wild ride that you have toe experience to believe, it's sinister and diabolical, it calculating and efficient in it's execution of it's craft and style. it brings more than it should and it does well with it and gives you a good show for your money and if your forgiving this film won't displease you. All in all The X-Files: Fight the Future is a great Sci-Fi thriller that is see and see again fun that you can't ignore. The X-Files:Fight the Future is red hot.
An amazing big screen adaption of the popular and absorbing T.V. series....

Man you got that right, the ties to the series held it back a little. Great write up

The future is a timeframe and time is an abstract concept and thus cannot be fought
   The X Files only "jumped the shark" after this movie for one reason, season 6 had lame episodes mostly catering towards selling out the platonic relationship the leads had and only further continued to mar the conspiracy and alien episodes with bad story telling.  Having said that...      X Files Fight The Future does get a few things right on the nose.  It's a thrilling and interesting movie that doesn't talk down to it's …

While the story has a great deal of exciting action and suspense, there are some serious logical holes that severely challenge your ability to suspend your disbelief. Furthermore, in true X-files tradition while some of the uncertainties in the series are resolved, many others are interjected, clearly laying the groundwork for a sequel.   It all begins with a boy in Texas falling into a natural hole in the ground. He is initially uninjured, finding a skull and then being exposed to a deadly …

First major X Files movie has an alien virus discovered in Texas and Mulder and Scullys fight to learn it's origins. Great and smart movie.
review by . May 14, 2008
Aliens, viruses, secret government entities, genetic engineering, assasinations and the rest of the staples of the X-files TV serial are all in this movie, tied together into a fairly cogent and actually quite believable storyline. And like a good movie based of a TV serial, multiple arcs are closed while none are opened. Specifically, this movie sees the deaths of two important characters from the serial (not Fox or Scully of course), and the existence of aliens on earth is confirmed once and for …

"The X-Files: Fight The Future" is the first attempt at transferring Mulder and Scully to the big screen. Though I enjoyed the original series, I was never a fanatic about it. In fact, when this film originally came out, I had no intentions of seeing it. Now that I finally have, I must admit that it is pretty good. It's full of cameos and tie-ins from the TV series that even a casual fan such as myself can pick up on, but you need not watch any of the series' episodes to enjoy this film.    This …

About this tv show


From its Fox Network debut on September 10, 1993, to its finale on May 19, 2002, the weekly 60-minute sci-fi drama The X-Files endeavored to prove that "the truth is out there." The series' title refers to those FBI files dealing with cases of paranormal and other otherwise unexplainable phenomena -- UFO sightings, alien abductions, genetic experimentation, possessions, telekinesis, and the like. Investigating the X-Files are agents Fox Mulder (David Duchovny) and Dana Scully (Gillian Anderson). Notorious within FBI circles as a maverick and iconoclast, the Oxford-educated Mulder made it his personal mission in life to prove that there were more things in Heaven and on Earth than were dreamt of in our philosophy. For him, it was very personal: his own sister had been abducted by extraterrestrials some 20 years earlier. His more skeptical partner, medical doctor Scully, was assigned to curb Mulder's more "fanciful" theories and to seek logical explanations to the phenomena at hand. (Ironically, in real life, actor David Duchovny doubted the existence of space aliens, while Gillian Anderson confessed to being a "true believer.") As the series progressed, Scully became more convinced that there were indeed paranormal forces beyond her ken; conversely, Mulder began to concede that Scully could be right once in a while, and tried to prove that humans, rather than aliens, were responsible for selected phenomena. Each successive season of The ...
