Wow... let me say I was impressed. Yes, Eminem CAN act. And even though I am an Eminem fan, I was REALLY REALLY skeptical about his acting abilities. He actually has a demanding role that requires him to do everything from comedy to drama. This movie was awesome... I would encourage anyone to go see it who is 18 or older (it really isn't for kids). But it depicted hip-hop pretty accurately... and really offers outsiders of the community some insight as to what it's like from the inside. I could really relate to the struggles Em's character went through with freestyling stage fright... But anyways, if you're 18 or older and want to spend $7.50 on a current movie wisely... go see 8 MILE!!! DJ edit: Locked per CR request.
