...REALLY FREAKIN' GOOD.

Unlike every other movie I've seen this year, I can wholeheartedly give to thumbs up to The X-Files: I Want to Believe.

4.5 out of 5 - would recommend to others.

The new X-Files flies in the face of the Hollywood phenomenon of bigger/faster/hipper/more explosions. The movie was, as far as I could tell, completely free of CGI. There wasn't a single explosion; in fact, I don't believe there was a single gunshot.

What there was, was a story. Remember those? Where the writer keeps your attention by making you want to know what happens next, instead of bombarding you with an epilepsy-inducing array of shiny things?

Shippers: You'll be happy. Really, really happy. And not *just* the Mulder/Scully shippers. ::coughSkinnercough::

People who only caught the show occasionally: You won't be lost. Promise. It's not mired in backstory.

Anyway, if you have a soft spot for serious investigation of topics of moral ambiguity, that explore the blurred line between good and evil... see. The. Film.

I promise you won't regret it.
