josh's Review of 8MM

7 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes


With many successful hits such as "Face/Off" and "Con Air" behind him, Nicolas Cage ventures out in one of the worst films of the late 90's. "8MM" is so awful it doesn't even deserve to be in video stores.

"8mm" surrounds Cage's portrayal of a private investigator named Tom Welles, who becomes involved in a missing persons case. A missing persons case that leads Welles into a disturbing world that includes pornography. Which I think a film with pornography is just terrible and wrong in so many different ways.

There are only a few scenes in this film that make the film just short of a total waste of money. They include scenes of mystery and those that make you wonder what is going on and with his family.

Nicolas Cage is a very smart and brilliant action star; however, he must have let it slip his mind to go over the script with a magnifying glass.

"8MM" deserves a spot in the hall of shame.
