Watch this if you liked: "X-Files", "Alone In The Dark"

Making a movie out of a successful TV series is a daunting task, even if you've successfully done it before. Considering the fact that it has been 10 years since the last movie, fans of the "X-Files" series all over the world are expecting the final instalment to be bigger, stranger, and creepier than ever. Unfortunately, I thought "X-Files: I Want To Believe" was neither here, nor there.

Director for all nine seasons and writer for the first movie, Chris Carter is back in the director's seat this time for his latest, "X-Files: I Want To Believe". Carter claimed that this movie is a standalone and is not linked to the first movie or the series, making the wait more mysterious than ever. The long-awaited supernatural movie brought the famous duo back together, David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson as Fox Mulder and Dana Scully.

Very much different from the first movie, the supernatural case in this final instalment wasn't something out-of-the-world and freaky. It didn't cause mass-deaths nor did it destroy the earth unlike the first one. This time, the incidents were more concentrated in one area as opposed to the first instalment, which was more dispersed. Personally, I thought that is it's biggest disappointment. The main reason both Mulder and Scully were summoned to help the young FBI Agents was because the case involved a psychic who confessed that his visions was a gift from 'above'.

I followed the series religiously, and was more interested in the estranged supernatural cases that Mulder and Scully was entrusted to handle instead of following their ever-complicated relationship. In the movie, their 'love life' and questions on their faith and beliefs in the supernatural took the spotlight.

Unfortunately, there weren't much exposure and findings to the case, which was rather sad because it felt like the whole thing ended abruptly. In addition, the bloody organs and stigmatic (literally) experience didn't scare the pants out of me as what Carter promised. The case that made Mulder change his mind to return and help the FBI team was simpler than I thought it would be. Frankly, way too simple after a 10 year break!

Nevertheless, big questions like 'what actually happened to Scully's son?' and 'will Mulder and Scully finally be together?' will finally be revealed in this movie so keep your fingers crossed, and hopefully some of your questions will be answered!
