This is a very light edit, so if you hated "I Want to Believe" you won't be much happier with this version. But if you're an X-Files nut you'll certainly dig this. I didn't care too much for this movie when I first saw it, and while this edit can't save the film for me, it made it a bit more enjoyable. Editing is seamless and the color grading work is top notch!

This movie looks better than ever and is less annoying than ever (cough Xzibit cough). The color correction is awesome! Unfortunately as much editing as was done it's still not the best movie in the world. It's always felt like a mediocre episode of the show and it still does. However if you want to watch this movie in the best possible way this is it!
