  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
A real treat for fans of the award-winning television series, The X Files movie finds Special Agents Mulder (Duchovny) and Scully (Anderson) closer than they have ever been to unlocking the secrets behind government conspiracies. Continuing series

DVD Picture:
With a film that is often dark, this new anamorphically enhanced 2.35:1 DVD exhibits superb shadow delineation. Color balance is natural, with accurate fleshtones, rich hues and deep, true blacks. Imagery is sharp, with fine detail and definition, exhibiting improved clarity over the previously released DVD. There is no distracting pixelization for a picture that is quite crisp throughout. Minor source element artifacts are apparent. Though the score is the same as the previous DVD, this is the preferred version. (Suzanne Hodges)
