I've seen the movie twice now and it's only on it's second day of release at the cinema. I'm a big X Files fan and was sad to see the end off the TV series. I was really pleased to hear that there was going to be another movie.
The movie takes place 6 years after the end of the TV series and Mulder & Scully's relationship has changed. Billy Connolly also stars as Father Joe, who has physic visions. He plays a Xcellent and serious performance and gives it it's X Files element. If you never watched the TV series, you've no need to worry as this is a stand alone movie and you do not need knowledge of it to understand whats happening. However if you are a Phile then there are references to the TV series and actors that were in different eps of the show appear in this movie. If you look closely you will spot Chris Carter in a scene. This movie features Mulder & Scully's relationship heavily so if you are a shipper you will be pleased!
The DVD version will be a directors cut so it will be longer then the cinema version and will contain more gore I hear. Also the Blu Ray will have more bouns fetures then the DVD.
Oh don't forget to watch till the end of the ending credits as Chris Carter gives us a little present.
