Jays Rating:

The words nasty, gross, and sick are accurate descriptions of the dark and disturbing thriller 8-Millimeter. Nicolas Cage is a private detective named Tom Wells, who is asked to watch an 8-millimeter film of a young girl who appears to be brutally murdered. Tom is horrified by what he sees, yet he accepts the job of tracking down the girl to find out if the murder was staged or real. This is how stupid this movie was. I could tell by the way the girl was screaming that she wasn’t at a picnic. Anyway, Tom flies to the seedy part of Hollywood searching for filmmakers who produced films containing staged scenes of girls being killed called “snuff” films. He meets a young man named Max who works in an adult bookstore and hires him to help search the other adult bookstores in town. After pounding the pavement for several days, Tom meets a slimy bookstore owner named Ed. He follows Ed to the house of an even slimier adult filmmaker named Deno. Did I mention everyone is slimy? Tom eventually finds out about the girl, but by this time the movie is already off track. This is a lousy film that has too much violence, too much foul language, and WAY too much explicit material. Did I mention, it was also poorly written? This movie was so hard to sit through, I wished I was deaf AND blind. This smut deserves an F rating.

This movie has been given an R rating by the MPAA

Although I am blind, I can appreciate a good movie as well as sighted individuals.
I rely more on a good story line than special effects.
