I was in Asda (Slough) this afternoon, picked up this movie for a decent price, it was £14 just last week in the same store.

For the devoted viewers of THE X-FILES, there can be few things more exciting than hearing the familiar notes of Mark Snow's theme song at the beginning of THE X-FILES - I WANT TO BELIEVE. This cinematic follow-up to the series picks up years after it ended, but the characters are still the same ones that audiences loved. Fans that followed the show religiously won't be surprised to learn that Mulder (David Duchovny) is currently living in hiding, still researching the paranormal while he grows a shaggy beard. Meanwhile, Scully (Gillian Anderson) is working as a doctor at a Catholic hospital. When an F.B.I. agent goes missing, the bureau calls on the pair to return to their old work. The paranormal element of their case is found in Father Joe (Billy Connolly), a former priest who is having psychic visions and leading the team from the F.B.I. to evidence to help them solve their case. Mulder and Scully return to their roles of believer and sceptic as they join in the search.
Just as in the show, I WANT TO BELIEVE is a genre-bender that combines science fiction, horror, and thriller. In fact, the film seems like a two-part episode of the show--and that's meant as a compliment. Though made six years after the series' finale (and 10 since the first cinematic incarnation), the show's central elements are intact, especially the interaction between Mulder and Scully. For those who weren't fans of the show, I WANT TO BELIEVE offers chills similar to THE SILENCE OF THE LAMBS and THE BONE COLLECTOR--but minus the gore. The show was always more about the unseen horrors, and the film works well as it follows its predecessor's lead.

No problem mate, regardless of the mixed opinions on the film, great bargain and will be purchasing at this price to complete the full set to go alongside my boxset, rep left for the heads up.

I'm a big x-files fan (just finished watching seasons 1-9 on DVD all the way through), and I have to agree this film is pants.

Lets hope the forecasted film of Chris Carters "Millennium" will fair better.

Wow! Lots of hate for the x-files film! I really enjoyed it!

I really enjoyed it too. No where near as bad as the reviews made out. Not sure what people were expecting but it is well worth £7!

Cold as poor film and as result you will no doubt find it cheaper in no time.

Huge fan. Such a dissapointing film.

Good price though.

Such a let-down. I saw this for free on a flight and it wasn't even worth the 2 hours of my time I spent, let alone 7 quid...

Man the films gettin' flamed. I'm a big X-Files fan and haven't seen this yet - if it's much better than the majority of you lot say it is: I'll wanna fight each and every one of you to the death :lol:

I liked the first movie! :?

Agree with most of the other posts.. the fim is terrible... none of the conspiracy stuff you would expect to see... in fact, it would have been a straight to dvd release if x-files hadn't been in the title...

Worst film ever made.

Haha harsh man.

Slough's only a few miles away from Windsor where I am. ASDA's surprisingly good for DVDs.

Just don't take your best motor with you :lol:
