After five years, the X-Files have been closed down and agent Mulder and Scully are assigned regular duty.

This cover-up leads to an even bigger conspiracy involving a powerful cabal of men and a mysterious extraterrestrial virus.

There's competent, even sophisticated, storytelling here, but the film's dependence on the mythology of the show on which it is based means X-Files virgins (a group to which I belong) will be left with a feeling of vague disillusionment. Nevertheless, for cinematic spin-offs of TV shows, this is pretty much as good as it gets.

The familiar back and forth of Scully and Mulder will delight fans of the show, as will cameos from all of the show's most famous characters. However, the story is pretty standard and poorly told and people who aren't in on the show's many nuances won't pick up on a lot of the material. Taken as a straight sci-fi film outside of the show's legacy, it's pretty weak.

I love this film - one of my all time favourites. I can watch it repeatedly. It's great as a stand alone, and a brilliant x files episode. Love it!

Fans of the stalwart sci-fi series X-Files will undoubtedly be satisfied with this film. It works both as a stand alone and a compliment to the series. Though it has flaws, overall it adds to the rich mythos of the program.

"X-Files: Fight The Future" by Yojimbo

A young boy in Texas is infected by a mysterious contageon and when it seems as if an entire office building is destroyed by a phoney terrorist attack just to cover it up, Mulder and Scully investigate. I was a big fan of the X-Files in the beginning but it became increasingly obvious that the alien conspiracy storyline was just being made up as they went, leading to one unsatisfying plot development after another that never contained any real answers. At the time, everyone hoped that Fight The Future would finally explain all but when this turned out to be yet another load of half answered questions it meant exasperation and disillusionment all round. On revisiting it, I found it a lot easier to be objective and I must admit that knowing what happens afterward, the film actually makes a ...
