X-Files 2

Mulder and Scully are together again in this decade-too-late second movie. And boy are they together! Were they able to recapture that fantastic chemistry they had back in the day?

Yes they did. It was just like watching an extended episode of the X-files. Loved it! Chris Carter decided to stay away from the alien-conspiracy theme from the series. Some people were disappointed by that, but not me. I could barely follow the convoluted plot line when I was watching the show, much less remember any of the details after so many years. I was worried about Billy Connolly's role as Father Joe, but he pulled it off well.

If you're a die hard X-Files fan, you've probably already grabbed your sunflower seeds and headed to the theater. If you've never seen the X-Files, you'll miss a few subtle throwbacks to the series, but the movie stands alone as a good murder-mystery thriller. So cue the eerie music and check out the latest X-Files!
