Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: In not knowing who it needs to please, I Want to Believe pleases no one. – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: There may be no going back, as much as we might want to believe otherwise. – Claudia Puig, USA Today, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: The X-Files: I Want to Believe is atmospheric and moves briskly, but it's basically TV writ large. – Lou Lumenick, New York Post, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: Rather than providing a springboard to a movie franchise, this film puts the final nail in The X-Files' coffin. Mulder and Scully can now fade into pop culture history. – James Berardinelli, ReelViews, Jun 24, 2010

Keep an Open Mind

I LOVED IT. If you went it expecting Mulder Scull awkward moments barley misses and aliens you where disapointed, but, if you went in with an open mind expecting an aged mulder and scully, you got it. Life doesn't stand still, they couldn't pick up right where they left off, they had to move and grow. Buy the movie, Rent the movie, watch it with an open mind, and remember, the third movie will be alien yay! This was not ment to make a huge splash, it was ment to put the name into your minds.

It was a "Let's See What It Does"

It seemed like this movie was given the green light because it had a small budget and the studio wanted to see if there was anymore interest in the series. The story reflected that in the movie. It wasn't my favorite movie of the summer but I enjoyed seeing the characters and finding out what they've been up to over the last 5-6 years. Since Mulder was wanted by the FBI, I suppose Frozenville in the middle of nowhere would be a good place to hide. I had to give it 4 stars just for the reunion. Thanks Chris Carter.

Give it a chance

This film suffered from all kinds of expectations, which was a problem. If you watch this knowing that: a) It's a small, intimate movie b) there's no explosions, gunfire or excessive violence---except for some disgusting parts c) This is a character/relationship movie d) It's a movie about faith/ religion and god e) There are NO Aliens Then maybe you'll like it. I did. Alot. I think this movie is worth your time. Absolutely.
