Eminem 'Phenomenal' by Rich Lee

Cat Velez - 13th Oct 2015

Rich Lee, the director of numerous Eminem videos including Rap God, The Monster and Not Afraid, shows he's mastered the action blockbuster with the video for Em's Phenomenal - a compendium of action film tropes, which also includes the near-obligatory cameo by John Malkovich. 

It follows a Bourne-style storyline, with Eminem waking up at a hospital, with no knowledge of who he is but with an incredible high jump, killer fighting skills, and what turns out to be an indestructible spinal column. What follows is a dense showcase of over-the-top VFX sequences with slow-mo fighting, car chases, free falling from helicopters, crashes through rooftops and of course, multiple explosions.

And then there's Malkovich apearing in a rickshaw halfway through, lending some gravitas with his distinctive brand of smooth menace...
