8 Mile (2002)
USA / English
"Go back to where it all started. "A young rapper (Eminem) in Detroit struggles with his anger and social status through music.
I don't care for too many dramas, but "8 mile" was an excellent movie.
Eminem was a better actor than I could have dreamed for him to be. He put on
a great show, and kept me interested throughout the entire movie. Mekhi
Phifer did an excellent job and is definitely a rising star in Hollywood.
Brittany Murphy could have done a better job, but I didn't like her
character development at all. It seems that she flip flops around so much
that in the end you really don't know which side she truly plays. Kim
Basinger did a good job. I don't watch too many of her movies. The last
movie I saw of hers' was "Bless the Child" and that was a major let down.
As for the plot, don't go into the movie thinking that you're going to see
the life of Eminem. This is not about Eminem's life. Eminem said it himself
in an interview. Mekhi Phifer even said that he didn't want to do the movie
because he thought it was about Eminem's life and that Hollywood was just
trying to take advantage of a rising star, but this isn't the case. This is
just as any other movie, but this is Eminem's acting debut. Even though
there are certain things in the movie that relate to Eminem's life (ex. 8
Mile Road,) this is certainly NOT an autobiography.
If you go into "8 mile" expecting to see an action film with explosions and
such then you're in for a let down. "8 Mile" is an amazing story about a
white wannabe rapper trying to make it in the underground world of rapping.
There isn't much action in this at all because it is a DRAMA, not an action.
I hope you go see this movie if your in for a good story with some great
