At 32min 20secs the "Cigarette Smoking Man" gets out of a helicopter, and proceeds to light a cigarette whilst still in the down wash of the rotor. He uses a lighter that sounds just like a classic Zippo lighter (known for being still able to work in extreme wind conditions). See more »
When the helicopter is flying through Dallas, it passes the "One Wilshire" building in Downtown L.A. As it lands, the building to the right bears the "Pacific Bell" logo which would not be found in Texas. See more »
Well-paced and well-crafted, "The X-Files" is a surprisingly good movie that does not try to get cute and go away from the things that made the series such a national phenomenon. David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson seem out of place working with bomb squads and doing other mundane duties after their department is shut down by the government. However the two feel that something really major is up which involves alien colonization on Earth and a vast government cover-up that goes through the highest places in the U.S. political realm. A good screenplay and solid direction make "The X-Files" a first-rate film from a very good cinematic year. 4 stars out of 5.
