Advantages: Very good watch even if you dont folloe Eminems music
Disadvantages: Somebody please feed Brittany Murphy
I watched this film a little sceptical. I do own 2 of eminems albums and do like some of his songs but i wasnt an over keen fan and after films such as The Cell and Soul Plane were other singers had turned to acting with very disappoint results i wasnt expecting to like the film at all. Im glad to say.... i was very impressed! The plot is not a biography of Martial Mathers, a.k.a. Eminem, but it is very much informed and guided by the experiences of his early career as a rapper in blue-collar and no-collar Detroit. Eminem is fantastic, not cocky in his performance at all. The soundtrack is fantastic and so are the rest of the cast... bar 1... Brittany murphy annoyed me quite a bit and frankly the girl needs a big mac meal. The end scenes where eminem was up against papa doc got me really excited and rooting for eminem to win. I liked the cameo scene with busta rhymes that was subtle but effective. Evan Jones character Cheddar Bob irritated me at first but after a while he grew on me and i kind of had a bit of a soft spot for his character.
Summary: Very good film
