FIGHT THE FUTURE.
FBI agents Fox Mulder (David Duchovny) and Dana Scully (Gillian Anderson) try to find out why several fire fighters and a boy were placed inside a federal building that subsequently exploded. This movie materialized after the fifth season of the popular TV show about aliens and governmental conspiracies. Its creator, Chris Carter, delivers answers to many of the questions asked during the run of the show; it’s not always terribly exciting, but the stars are fun to watch. The filmmakers have milked their budget thoroughly; there are several spectacular sequences with great visual effects.
