'8 Mile' tells a inspiring story but it does lack at many points in the film, plus...I hate rap music.
Marshell "Eminem" Matthews isn't really that bad of an actor. He was perfect for the part in this movie and I didn't hate him in this. He wasn't great but still decent. Brittany Murphy was alright in this movie as well. And finally, Kim Basinger [from,
'Batman'  did a pretty good job in this movie. She was't half bad. BUT, the acting is really only worth 3 stars.
The direction was just a 'meh'. I hated how everything in this movie was so dark and dull. But, it's whatever.
Overall, an alright movie. This was much better than I was expecting. I'm also not a fan of rap so that sort of deducted points. But, this is still worth-seeing.
