Jimmy, known to his friends as Rabbit, is a young man trying to make his way out of the burned-out shell of inner-city Detroit. Rabbit is a white kid trying to make music in a predominantly African-American community and culture. After Rabbit freezes up in the midst of an MC battle, he's convinced he's missed his chance and that he's doomed to lead a marginal life as a factory rat for the rest of his days.

I really loved this movie! Eminem is a great actor, and I'm not just saying that because I'm his biggest fan. He is actually, and truly, good. I wouldn't recommend watching this movie if you're not a fan of Eminem's 'cause the whole movie is about him, but even if you aren't a big fan of rap, I think you will still enjoy this movie a lot.

This is one of my favorite movies of all time - hands down - so whenever somebody asks me what one of my favorite movies are; I'll say '8 Mile'.

Eminem is an actor and a reactor.

Enough said.

It was O.K for a home TV movie. I was entertained and interesting. But it was NOT worth the long library wait or the price to rent from a Red Box. "I fast forwarded a lot but not all the way.”

Drama, drama, drama but with rap. Music is good with basic down-trodden-struggling-pick-oneself-up-to-do-better story in gritty Detroit. Worth a watch.

I didn't think this movie was very good, but I think fans of Eminem would probably enjoy this. I'm just not a huge fan of bad acting. Other than that music isn't horrible, and the underdog story isn't that bad although it could have been scripted better.

A great movie, it teaches you how to shed away ego and be calm during troublesome time!

Distorts reality by playing up the myth that rap music is a popular movement from the streets and lower socioeconomic levels of society, when in fact its a huge megamillion-dollar commercial machine. At the same time the film does provide some information on rap music's intentions and origins--but who cares?
