What a sweet movie, Eminem is my hero and idle! He does a terrific job in this movie, he is the most talented person I know and he does such a great job in this movie. It is a 5 start movie no matter what, GREAT MOVIE I recomend to those who like Eminem's music!

What Mr. Hanson has done with 8 Mile is make a pop movie instead of a movie about pop. There's nothing disreputable about this. Full Review

There's no doubt that Eminem has the talent and presence of a star. It's just a shame that the filmmakers didn't capture his power with mad skillz of their own. Full Review

There are a lot of stale -- and nefarious -- clichés in 8 Mile, but most of the time they're overwhelmed by the pulsing, grinding, hopped-up camerawork and the soulful star turn of Eminem. Full Review

This is about the rise of a pop star, plain and simple. The real deal –- and the movie's greatest fun –- is in the rap contests. Full Review

As is usually the case with a well made sports movie, you don't have to appreciate the particular sport in order to enjoy the movie. 8 Mile has not been made solely with fans of hip-hop music in mind. Full Review
