Take Your Greatest Fear and Multiply it by X.
Thirty-seven thousand years ago, a deadly secret was buried in a cave in Texas. Now the secret has been unleashed. And its discovery may mean the end of all humanity.

"The plague to end all plagues..."

When a terrorist bomb destroys a building in Dallas, Texas, FBI Agents Fox Mulder (David Duchovny) and Dana Scully (Gillian Anderson) are drawn into a dangerous conspiracy surpassing anything they've ever encountered. With the dubious assistance of a paranoid doctor (Academy Award-winner Martin Landau), Mulder and Scully risk their careers and their lives to hunt down a deadly virus which may be extraterrestrial in origin -- and could destroy all life on earth. Their pursuit of truth pits them against the mysterious Syndicate, powerful men who will stop at nothing to keep their secrets safe, leading the agents from a cave in Texas, to the halls of the FBI, and finally to a secret installation in Antarctica which holds the greatest secret of all.

"Sharp, mysterious and wonderful" (Newsweek), The X-Files moves to the big screen, offering "everything a great action-thriller should: intelligence, excitement and awesome special effects" (Sixty Second Preview).

"Smart, sexy and sensational...X marks the spot.  ABC-TV
"Neither true believers nor newcomers to the phenomenon will be disappointed.  Bob Graham, San Francisco Chronicle
"A most unusual summer blockbuster: one that delivers the thrilling goods with an uncommon dose of intelligence and complexity.  Michael Dequina, Mr. Brown's Movies
"Like the TV show, The X-Files movie is stylish, scary, sardonically funny and at times just plain gross.  Michael O'Sullivan, The Washington Post
"Two thumbs up!  Siskel & Ebert

Editor's Note
The stars of TV's THE X-FILES, Mulder (David Duchovny) and Scully (Gillian Anderson) make it to the big screen in this long-awaited extension of the hit television series. True to the premise of the show, the movie opens with the discovery of a mysterious black substance which is predictably covered up by an unnamed, seemingly official group of men. Evading various perils, Mulder and Scully scramble through a series of spectacularly shot scenes not possible in the television productions.

ReelViews 8 of 10
There are two kinds of viewers for The X-Files movie: those have seen at least a few episodes of the TV series and those who have never watched it. I am a member of the latter group, so that's the perspective from which this review is written. As a result, I cannot assess how the film will appeal to a die-hard follower of the program. But, for the "uneducated" movie-goer, The X-Files offers two hours of solid entertainment...Transferring a television program to the big screen has become a routine procedure for a film industry starved for ideas, but this is a rare occasion when the movies continue the adventures begun on the small screen, with no re-casting involved...In interviews, writer/producer/series creator Chris Carter has stated that his goal with The X-Files was to make a movie that could stand on its own. There's no question that he has succeeded...Having seen the movie, it's easy for me to comprehend why so many people are enamored with the series. Although a lot of the material explored in The X-Files isn't new or revolutionary, the style of presentation and the quality of the writing set this above most other conspiracy theory/alien invasion pictures. I won't claim that the experience of having watched this film will suddenly convert me into a weekly viewer of the TV show, but at least now I'm aware of what awaits if I choose to catch an episode. - James Berardinelli

Chicago Sun-Times 8 of 10
As pure movie, ``The X-Files'' more or less works. As a story, it needs a sequel, a prequel, and Cliff Notes. I'm not sure even the filmmakers can explain exactly what happens in the movie, and why. It doesn't make much difference if you've seen every episode of the TV series, or none: The film is essentially self-contained, and that includes its enigmas. X-philes will probably be as puzzled at the end as an infrequent viewer like myself...Puzzled, but not dissatisfied. Like ``Mission: Impossible,'' this is a movie that depends on surface, on mystery, on atmosphere, on vague hints and murky warnings. Since the underlying plot is completely goofy, it's probably just as well it's not spelled out. If it were, this would play more like a seminar on the works of Whitley Strieber. Instead, producer-writer Chris Carter, who conceived the TV series, reassembles his basic elements in a glossy extravaganza...Much has been made of the fact that ``The X- Files'' is not so much a film based on a TV series as a continuation of that series in film form. The movie feeds out of last season and into next one. No final answers are therefore provided about anything; it's as if, at the end of ``Casablanca,'' the airplane circled around and landed again. But I liked the way the movie looked, and the unforced urgency of Mulder and Scully, and the way the plot was told through verbal puzzles and visual revelations, rather than through boring action scenes. - Roger Ebert
