September 17, 2008
I can't say I warmed to the results, but I was solidly held for the film's two hours.

It is good work by Schumacher, but hard to watch nonetheless.

8mm is neither the sick exploitation film nor the risible misfire the critics had prepared us for -- it is a movie of serious intent.

Director Joel Schumacher steadily turns on the tension.

This is not a movie for the squeamish, by any means. But for those who like their thrillers dark and their heroes a bit more complicated and flawed than the average shoot-without-a-blink type so prevalent in today's movies, 8MM fills the bill.

Se salva por el buen oficio de su director y por la adecuada edicin que presenta, pero pudo haber ido ms all y dejar de ser un thriller como tantos otros

t's a comlpex achievement; exciting, sad and profound at the same time. It's also one of the year's first pleasant surprises.

Rarely a bore, and often finds the slick energy of the most effective dark action films.

It is a real film. Not a slick exploitation exercise with all the trappings of depravity but none of the consequences. Not a film where moral issues are forgotten in the excitement of an action climax.

The film never really gets under the skin of its central character.

Powerfully played and conscientiously filmed!

A return to form for director Joel Schumacher.
