Product Description

Product Description

Thirty-seven thousand years ago, a deadly secret was buried in a cave in Texas. Now the secret has been unleashed. And it's discovery may mean the end of all humanity.

"The plague to end all plagues"

When a terrorist bomb destroys a building in Dallas, Texas, FBI Agents Fox Mulder (David Duchovny) and Dana Scully (Gillian Anderson) are drawn into a dangerous conspiracy surpassing anything they've ever encountered. With the dubious assistance of a paranoid doctor (Academy Award -winner Martin Landau). Mulder and Scully risk their careers and their lives to hunt down a deadly virus which may be extraterrestrial in origin - and could destroy all life on earth. Their pursuit of truth pits them against the mysterious Syndicate, powerful men who will stop at nothing to keep their secrets safe, leading the agents from the cave in Texas, to the halls of the FBI, and finally to a secret installation in Antarctica which holds the greatest secret of all.

One of the most distinctly creepy characters ever to appear on The X-Files, Donnie Pfaster is a guy with a few personal issues. Fired after his funeral director boss catches him clipping the hair from a corpse, Donnie begins to pursue his real interests in earnest. His escalating fetish leads him to seek out new, living victims, despite Mulder and Scully's attempts to stop him.

Sporting the funniest opening sequence in the show's history, Die Hand Die Verletzt tells the story of a small town with very singular religious practices. When teenagers begin to be murdered, Mulder and Scully investigate the locals' claims of witchcraft, but find instead a number of unexplained occurrences that defy the laws of nature and evidence of possible misconduct by the local school's officials. This lighthearted yet disturbing episode exposes the true nature of substitute teachers and demonstrates the repercussions of becoming lax in certain faiths. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

To fully understand the significance of this film as part of the X-Files storyline, we must take a quick look back to the television series. "X-Files: Fight the Future" was filmed before season 5 (this complicated things a bit for the cast and crew in filming that season because they knew how things would turn out.) The X-Files had been shut down for a second time. This left fans wondering how Mulder and Scully will continue to battle the Shadow Government and fight for the truth when they are reassigned to other tasks. But this film doesn't fully answer that question, and instead acts as a sensational detour from the recent series of events. We learned from previous seasons that killer bees are intended as carriers for some sort of virus, and of course that extra-terrestrials do exist.

Mulder and Scully attempt to stop a bomb planted inside a building, as they are currently on anti-terrorism duty. Being a big Hollywood production, of course the building blows up anyway. A man claiming to have known Mulder's father discovers that the bombing may have been part of a bid to cover up the outbreak of a mysterious extraterrestrial virus, the so-called Black Oil. As this virus is a threat to all humankind, our favourite FBI agents work their way north in a search for the truth. Along the way they encounter a gigantic dome full of virus-carrying killer bees.

This film dishes out everything that you'd expect a Hollywood X-Files movie to give its fans. It also has cutting-edge FX and astounding visuals. Mark Snow is brilliant as usual; the often-underappreciated X-Files composer. On the downside, I have to say that this film could have given the fans a little more. The story is just like a typical `two-parter' from the series, but for its pricy FX.

"The X-Files: Fight the Future" doesn't answer a lot of the questions that fans were waiting for from the movie. The only difference between this movie and, say, a two or three part X-Files story arc is the size of the budget, effects and the guest stars. The writing, unfortunately, doesn't measure up to the best the series offered. Nevertheless, it's a fine theatrical episode of the series.
Thousands of years ago an alien species ruled this planet. Humanity was just an afterthought. It's clear that these aliens want to regain control of the planet and members of the government have made a pact with the devil; humanity will become a slave race to these aliens (and other things you don't want to know about if you haven't seen the movie otherwise it'll spoil plot points).
Somehow all of this is tied into two little boys that discover an ancient underground cavern. One of the boys is infected with some sort of virus as are several rescue workers. In another part of the US, Mulder and Scully are checking out terrorist threat against the US. The building that Mulder and Scully and the rest of the team believe to be the target is a decoy. Mulder and Scully accidently discover the real target. The mystery at the heart of the film is why the terrorist targeted a building that had the agency FEMA in it when there were more vital government agencies they could have hit. Also, the building was evacuated. So how come there were two victims discovered in the rubble?
All of this remains at the heart of the mystery and it does, indeed, play into the alien conspiracy story arc than began to be undcovered in season one of the series. If you're interested in "The X-Files" but haven't seen the entire series, this movie is still comprehensible to the average moviegoer.

Those who haven't seen the show before will find this movie to be totally confusing. Even X-philes will be perplexed about what the deal is. I became a fan of the show for many reasons- series creator Chris Carter's unorthodox takes on society & myth, the acting of David Duchovney and Gillian Anderson, and the show's quirky humor. This movie really doesn't showcase any of those things.
For the movie Carter wrote a decent story which never really breaks free from its moorings. The potential scope and grandeur of the story is hinted at but never seen. While the directing is decidedly second-rate, the music is quite good- appropriately dark and moody. Anderson & Duchovney make what they can of Agents Mulder & Scully, but the story too often leaves the Agents reacting to events more than acting upon them.
The supporting cast is badly under-served as well. While Martin Landau has some nice scenes as Mulder's latest informant, the Lone Gunmen have little more than a cameo. Cigarette-Smoking Man & Skinner (both complex characters important to the show) are both left with small parts that are hardly relevant to the story. John Neville's Well-Manicured Man may have the best role in the movie as the man who brings Mulder closer to the truth than he has ever been.
Based on this film, Fox's strategy of bringing the show onto the big screen seems fated to failure.
Carter would do well to turn the screenwriting duties for his next film over to X-Files scribe Vince Gillighan or even Duchovney, a talented writer himself.
