Eddie Murphy is probably one of the most underrated actors on American cinema. Even his Oscar nomination for his dramatic role in the award winning film Dreamgirls didn't seem to dispel this myth. However, over the years he has proven himself to be a consummate actor of the highest quality and is again displayed in this little 1999 gem that most of the world ignored at the time it was released. LIFE is a landmark film for Murphy as we watch his character grow and develop through an entire lifetime of mishaps, stumbles, failures, successes, goodness, happiness and deep despair. One of the best films in his long list of endeavors, LIFE is a must see movie for those who appreciate quality of workmanship in cinema. The supporting cast of Martin Lawrence (who delivers a stellar performance), Bernie Mac, Obba Babatundé, Ned Beatty, and so many more talented character actors, makes LIFE one of the premiere movies in my collection.
