Re: X-Files Bombs

^ Yeah, but the problem with that review is it only focuses on the character aspect of the two leads (the part of the film that I do find successful with the exclusion of the tag after the credits which seems to actually be a reverse of the message of the film, since it plays directly into what Mulder offers in giving up hope).

But the driving plot is exceptionally weak. The production values aren't that good (and you can be low budget and have good production values), the direction and cinematography aren't strong. The acting is of tv quality. The movie has huge flaws that has absolutely nothing to do with guns or explosions (as someone who prefers character pieces far, far more then Summer films). But I want good solid character pieces and this isn't one of them. Not by a long shot.
