Six years after the events of The X-Files series finale, former FBI agent Doctor Dana Scully is now a staff physician at Our Lady of Sorrows, a Catholic hospital, and treating a boy named Christian who has Sandhoff disease, a terminal brain condition. FBI agent Drummy arrives to ask Scully’s help in locating Fox Mulder, the fugitive former head of the X-Files division, and says they will call off its manhunt for him if he will help investigate the disappearances of several women, including young FBI agent Monica Banan. Mulder and Scully are called back to duty by the FBI when a former priest claims to be receiving psychic visions pertaining to a kidnapped agent.

The movie itself isn`t that bad. It just isn´t that much of an x-files movie. And this is not because it hasn´t got any of the mythology of the series. The story would have worked with two generic FBI Agents instead of Mulder and Scully. But I liked the scenes they both had together this did something for the whole story of the charasters and their relationship.

Not bad but you'll be disappointed that Mulder and Scully don't even work together. She is just a surgeon who only cares about using stem cell research to save a sick boy.
While Mulder works with the F.B.I. on a Frankstein like case looking for a killer who is killing people for limbs. So yeah, the first movie is much better.

Good movie and much better than I expected because of the reviews: a Russian with lung cancer is kidnapping women (one of them a FBI agent) so that his doctor can "switch bodies" thanks to stem cell transplantation.

Although I liked the movie, for me it has nothing to do with the X-Files besides Scully and Mulder's starring and I was constantly reminded of "The Crimson Rivers" (although I don't know why exactly ;-)).
