The X-Files: I Want to Believe 

Reviewer's grade: C

Series creator Chris Carter serves as director and co-writer of "The X-Files: I Want to Believe," six years after the TV show called it quits. David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson reprise their career-defining roles as Fox Mulder and Dana Scully, investigators of unexplained phenomena for the FBI.

Except now, they are not. They'll called back into action when a female FBI agent goes missing, and a disembodied limb is found under the snow near her home, with the authorities led to it by the psychic visions of a pedophile priest (Billy Connolly).

To discuss details of just what's going on would ruin any hopes of surprise for audiences, but for a film that's been shrouded under so much secrecy, one would expect something a lot "¦ well, bigger. Unlike its source material, "I Want to Believe" is ultimately doomed by its slow pace. There's enough good material for an hour-long episode, but it's stretched to nearly two. Anderson delivers some solid work here, acting heads above anyone else in the cast. They could do better, and you could do worse. PG-13
