The X-Files: I Want to Believe
If the first "X-Files" movie landed in the midst of the TV show's run and near the height of its popularity, the second -- far more modest in scope and ambition -- comes six years after the program signed off. Both, however, share a common trait: Namely, neither would qualify as a better-than-average episode of the series. Director/franchise creator Chris Carter gives devoted fans plenty of small moments to swoon over, but the appeal should be limited beyond those fervent loyalists. So while the opening should be reasonably robust, this remains a movie primarily reserved for those wanting to believe in it.

A movie studio head talking to a Hollywood producer in 2008......
"Really? Let me get this straight.....We're gonna make a movie based on a TV show that peaked in the 90's.This will be the second movie based on the show....the first movie generated no interest and was a bomb and you'd like to shoot a second one?And you'll use the same two cast members from the TV show who have had absolutely no career since the TV show was canceled? Sounds fabulous! Make it happen! When can we start shooting part three?!?!"
