I think they waited a bit too long to try and revive this franchise for film.

Re: X Files 2 - Letdown

I personally really like this movie, and felt that it was a character piece for Mulder and Scully who are the heart of the X-Files, and while the case might not have been super-weird it didn't need to be, plus Skinner showing up was great for me, because I didn't know he would be in the movie so it was a surprise.

The movie was ok but the story would have made a better 50 min TV episode.

Re: X Files 2 - Letdown

It was awful - a massive letdown. Admittedly, I'm not the hugest X-Files fan out there. I've seen maybe two-thirds of it, perhaps as much as three-quarters, and I'm not really very interested in the overall conspiracy arc or the 2012 thing. However, because of this I was really looking forward to the film, as I was aware that it was a standalone (monster of the week) style episode, and those were always my favourite. Imagine my disappointment when it turned out to just be incredibly dull, devoid of any interesting mystery, and in fact, barely even an X-File. I'd have given it a pass on tv - not at the cinema - must try harder.

Re: X Files 2 - Letdown

I read the novelization by Max Allan Collins and I was disapointed with the movie as well. Not surprised that it bombed at the box office. Wonder if it will do any DVD sales?
