In a small Texas town, a mysterious black substance emanating from the remains of a prehistoric human engulfs a young boy and his rescuers. Later, FBI agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully are in Dallas to disarm a bomb set to detonate inside a federal facility. Unfortunately the bomb explodes and leaves four inside dead. Mulder and Scully then receive a tip that the disaster was a government effort to cover-up an alien virus linked to the boy's death.
This was like watching a really long episode of the show, which was perfectly fine with me. You still have the same feel of the show while watching the movie. The characters are the same with a few new ones added to the cast. The script and the story went along with the show. It was great.
It is hard to talk about the movie without talking about the show, since it was going on at the same time. I love them both. If you are a fan of the show, then you have seen this movie. If you have not seen the movie, then what are you waiting for. It was really good. Enjoy.
