Review: 'The X-Files: I Want to Believe'

Mulder and Scully reprise their traditional roles in a dark and doomy world, as Billy Connolly plays a visionary priest.

By Peter Rainer / July 26, 2008

The press notes for "The X-Files: I Want To Believe" states that "select department heads read the script in an enclosed room under video surveillance, after which the script was returned to a locked vault." Far be it for me, therefore, to reveal much more than that David Duchovny's Fox Mulder and Gillian Anderson's Dana Scully are still chastely in love, the world is as dark and doomy as ever, and Billy Connolly, as a scurvy priest who may or may not be a visionary, steals the acting honors. Grade: B (Rated PG-13 for violent and disturbing content and thematic material.)
