This movie passes the tests easily: Blythe Danner plays the Assistant Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation and has two or three scenes where she has conversations with Gillian Anderson's FBI Special Agent Dana Scully about terrorist bomb plots, extra-governmental conspiracies and secret genetic engineering installations.

Another bonus for fans of empowered women: Agent Scully ordering a security guard in a Texas office skyscraper to evacuate the building shows a character who spends a great deal of time talking about a man (Agent Mulder) or even as a damsel-in-distress plot device taking charge immediately and effectively in order to save hundreds of lives.
