Honestly? I liked it. But I went into it expecting different things. It was two episodes of the tv show strapped together. That was about it. But that was all I wanted. To See Mulder and Scully being Mulder and Scully. Oh and I did think Billy Connolly was *really* good.

Connolly was great! Definitely one of the movie's good points. I guess I was just expecting something bigger plotwise. :)

I think as i knew all along this was more 'monster of the week' rather than government conspiracy... Btw, I cheered for the character that entered 5mins before the end.

I also thought Connolly accepting the role was interesting given that IIRC he was abused as a child by a member of the church.

Also, some people died who i didn't expect to.

I think by the end Anderson and Duchovny fitted back into the characters. I hope a 3rd film (maybe a Straight to DVD would work?) will follow. It did make me realize how much i missed them. And i've spent the past X months watching all the episodes from 1x01 till i think i made it to the end of series 7. Still have the last few to do.

I used to be into the X-Files, but I'm having a very hard time working up any enthusiasm for the new film.

I think that too much time has passed since it was on the telly. The trail has gone cold.

I watched it on and off when it was on telly. I never really got into it seriously, but I did like it. I don't think I saw any of the episodes Lucy Lawless was in, which probably makes me a bad Kiwi. :)

I liked it, too. I wasn't actually planning to see it, we were wandering by and decided why not.
