Will Scully and Mulder come together to solve both problems like in the old days? Why are the women being kidnapped and what are are the capturers doing with them?  


            Watching this film took me back to older times when investigative shows were really good. Scully and Mulder are great, intense and weird names for agents. As for the film, I liked it; it had drama, suspense, action and a smidge of romance. I don’t remember the last season but it was nice to see that Scully was finally working as a doctor and trying to save lives. I also love seeing the fire in her eyes when she is being an outspoken strong woman. Mulder was being Mulder, trying to find a place of the supernatural to dip his toe into. The script was well-written and casted accordingly correct to the scenes. I liked that this film wasn’t the typical supernatural film as it was more odd-natural, meaning that the reasoning behind kidnapping the women and the ways to utilize them were very odd. Even though, Scully and Mulder is a couple, their relationship still seems serious and ominous as if they are still partners in the FBI. The ending was gripping where I knew what the outcome would be but it was entertaining to just watch it unfold. All in all, I will see this film again.
