Eminem just doesn't have any screen presense. He's wooden, and un-charismatic. His rap battles showed why he's so popular. He exceptional at creating lyrics. But it takes so much more in front of the camera. I'd have cast someone else.
A brave film by Beatty that takes a lot of swipes at politicians and the ruling class. It's not as funny as it wants to be though but tries to at least be sincere. Beatty trying to get with Halle Berry wasn't realistic. But I did like the movie's overall feel.
