“I was afraid of this movie. For a long time I feared that one day, Eminem WOULD make a movie – and that movie would suck!!!!u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eAlong it came, and you know what? It didnu0026#39;t suck. Man, was I relieved. u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eI have never been able to put a finger on Mr. Mathersu0026#39; rapping skills, I think his technique is amazing. His rhymes are sharp and intelligent and he always performs them with pure justification. But could he take this to the big screen? He succeeded. In his debut movie he managed to play it real and natural. He had good on screen chemistry with pretty much all the characters, but especially with Brittany Murphy (Uh, gotta love that sex scene… That was hot.)u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe final battles in the movie, are the absolute climax. If you ever had any doubts about Eminmems talents – one way or the other – you definitely know his worth now!u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eu003culu003eu003cliu003eSome might say that it must be easy to play yourself, and itu0026#39;s not a secret that this movie is somewhat autobiographic. But it sure takes guts to put yourself out there like that, well done.u003c/liu003eu003c/ulu003eu003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eSo 8/10”
