Movie Reviews

Not bad...
(2 out of 5 stars)

"This DVD takes you on a journey from Eminem's childhood to his rise to fame. It contains many interview clips of Eminem, however there are more interviews with other people talking about Eminem - which is ok but most of them are basically just stating their opinion of him. It also has no music or concert footage.The back cover is misleading as to what is actually inside. For example: "Exclusive access to the Mathers' family photo album" really just a couple of pictures that are shown to us by a family member. "Masses of previously unseen film footage"...I'm still waiting for that - maybe they forgot to include it. "More than twenty-minutes of interviews with Eminem and his family"...this gave me the impression that they were being interviewed together, which they were not. The family member being interviewed is an Uncle. The interviews of Eminem are about 10 minutes - split up into about 16 clips.It is an unauthorized biography, which we are reminded of when at one point there are people shining flashlights into the camera trying to make it go away, and another time when a security guard asks the camera crew to leave - no wonder though -as they were outside the gates to Eminem's home. Although the interview clips with Eminem were great, these things just reminded me that I was watching something that was not endorsed by Eminem.I would not recommend this DVD. It does not "Uncover the real Eminem", as it claims to. Stick to 'Angry Blonde', or 'All Access Europe', which are official Eminem products."
