The first thing to get out of the way is that this is not an Eminem film. Marshal Mathers portrays a character not unlike himself but it is a serious attempt to act in a film, not in an extended Slim Shady music video.
Jimmy 'B-Rabbit' Smith Jr (Mathers) is not a happy young man. He's just split from his girlfriend, has had to move back in with his mother (which mortifies him) and her boyfriend (who he hates), has a dead-end job and his dream of getting out of the squalor of Detroit's trailer parks through his talent for rapping is being hampered by his lack of confidence and open hostility from black audiences and other rappers. Over the course of the film we see him struggle to take charge of his life and find his place in the world he longs to be an accepted part of.
Mathers is very good in his first feature film. His scenes with his friends and his mother (Kim Basinger) are realistic and he is incredibly natural and tender in his scenes with the young actress who plays Jimmy's little sister but it is in the freestyle rapping 'battles' that he truly shines.
The rapping scenes are intense. It is to his credit that Mathers makes you feel how nervous Jimmy is; how important these moments are for him. You don't need to be a huge rap/eminem fan to appreciate what is going on and what is at stake. The final showdown is breathtaking.
The extras include a run of the mill 'making of' feature and some rap 'battles' between some of the extras and Eminem which didn't make it into the movie but are worth a look. There is also the video for Superman in all its sleazy glory and a DVD Rom option to access further bits and pieces.
I really enjoyed it and at this price it is great value. If you like Eminem or enjoy rap/hip-hop or even just the timeless story of the underdog struggling to succeed, you should find something here to like.

Im not an Eminem fan and I would never have watched this film by my own choice, but having said that - I enjoyed it. So there is obviously something in there to turn it around.
Ok, so I had absolutely no idea what people were saying for vast amounts of the film, I just managed to keep a hold of what was being rapped during the 'battles' and I followed the story by keeping my wits and looking for advice from the other people watching.
The story basically follows the young white rapper 'Bunny Rabbit' (How this guy got into as few fights as we saw with that name I didn't know) as he struggled, not so much to get noticed and recognised, but to pull out of himself the raw talent he and his friends knew he had.
Until this film he was an unknown, but respected within his group as good. By the end of this film by overcoming a variety of problems, being knocked back, getting a little luck, but overall walking in the right direction and trying to keep life on track (in a very subtle unspoken way too) he becomes a man who has opened a door, expressed his talent, proven he can cut it.
At times some of the things that happen appear almost random, without justification or motive, but then, that is not to say its wrong. That is obviously the way life works here. Its not so much a feature film as a semi fictional documentary to give you some insight, some fun and some shocks. Its certainly enjoyable whether a fan of Eminem or not, in fact the only song from the soundtrack that seems to appear in the film is the title track. Its true if you hate rap you are going to hate this film, but liking it is not so much a requirement as an added benefit.
My only real down point was that come the end, it finished. Abruptly.

It was nothing like what I had expected, no frills from Hollywood here, even the way its been filmed has a more real feel to it, I did not expect to like this film, I thought oh great another rapper who thinks he can act, but I take that back Eminem does a damn good job on this film, the ending is the last thing I would have expected, well worth wtaching at least once.

By Mr. N. Carnegie HALL OF FAMEVINE VOICE on 16 April 2003
Format: DVD
So here it is, the movie ‘debut’ of Eminem, the man once referred to by President Bush as 'the most dangerous threat to American children since polio'. Directed by Curtis Hanson (previously responsible for the excellent LA Confidential), Marshall Mathers III stars as Jimmy ‘B. Rabbit’ Smith, a wannabe rapper struggling to break of a life of poverty on the wrong side of Detroit’s 8 Mile Road.
8 Mile opens with B. Rabbit about to go on stage to take part in an open mic rap contest at a rap venue called ‘The Shelter’. Plagued by nerves, he throws up in the bathroom and down his sweater before going on stage, where in front of a cynical and somewhat hostile back audience he completely dries up in an embarrassing case of stage fright. Homeless and car-less after splitting up with his ‘pregnant’ girlfriend he has to return to his mother’s trailer home, whereupon he disturbs his mother (Kim Basinger) mid-coital with her younger lover Greg. As if that is not embarrassing enough his mother later confides to a horrified Rabbit that she is having problems with her sex life because Greg wont go down on her.
Almost everything in 8 Mile suggests that this is less than fiction and whilst perhaps not quite autobiographical it is certainly quasi-autobiographical. Much like a pre-superstardom Eminem, his character Jimmy has an absentee father, he hangs around with a multiracial crew and takes part in rapping competitions. Jimmy’s mother is a drunken fool neglecting her four-year old daughter, whilst living with a no-good loser virtually the same age as her son, in a squalid trailer.
