8 Mile 2002

description written by member Zara:

The people of Detroit know 8 Mile as the city limit, a border, a boundary. It is also a psychological dividing line that separates Jimmy Smith Jr. from where and who he wants to be. A provocative fictional examination of a critical week in Jimmy's life, 8 Mile stars multi-platinum recording artist Eminem in his first feature-film leading role, along with Kim Basinger (as Jimmy's mother), Mekhi Phifer, Brittany Murphy and Eugene Byrd.

8 Mile Movie Review by Joe (7/19/2011)

Perhaps the best rapper alive, possibly ever, shares his lyrical ability and gifted acting skills in the movie 8 Mile. A story about Eminem's life and how hard it is to become a white rapper in a mostly black music business/community. Eminem plays himself, but with a name change, known as Jimmy Smith Jr. in the film, or...

8 Mile Movie Review by Bobby B (1/30/2008)

8 Mile is a deceptive movie. It's formula but it's not formulaic, familiar without being tired, stirring without being manipulative. Several times it flirts with clich´┐Ż but manages to side step it every time. In the end 8 Mile succeeds by doing what has come to seem an impossibility to expect out of a Hollywood...

8 Mile Movie Review by King Dangus Kahn (9/1/2007)

You have to be freaking sh*ting me. A movie about "eminem". Does this guy really deserve his own movie? Is this what our society has come to? A movie about a drug peddling white kid with a sh*tty mom becoming a rap star. Hollywood makes me sick. And so many bright children are wasting their lives being a "thug". Total...

8 Mile Movie Review by Seth C (10/18/2006)

"8 Mile" was the biggest letdown I felt at the movies in 2002. Granted, Eminem's performance is great in the film and the freestyle rap battles at the film's closing are worth price of admission alone, however Kim Basinger's performance has to be one of the worst performances ever in cinema's history. Basinger, who play's...
