    In 1995, a reporter interviews imprisoned rapper Tupac Shakur as he recounts his life. His Black Panther mother pregnant with him is released from prison after her exoneration. It's a struggle with the FBI, their move to the west coast, rough neighborhoods, and her drug use. This documents his rise, his friendship and rivalry with Biggie, and his troubles with his label. Eventually, he signs with Suge Knight and Death Row Records.

    This biopic actually made his epic life story somewhat boring. It has his music but it's not used effectively. There is no real style to the film. Demetrius Shipp Jr. is functional as Tupac but he doesn't have the charisma. It touches on all the important points but it doesn't dig that deeply. It follows Tupac's point of view which makes sense since it's his telling. It also keeps a damper on the proceedings. This is closer to a Lifetime biopic than what Tupac deserves.

    Who is Tupac Shakur? A man who was desperate for making a change in society where African-Americans were subjects to mistreatment by whites, particularly the law enforcement. And his desire to make change were conveyed through the electrifying lyrics of his music. Shakur was not rapper who made music solely for entertainment, but voice his message on the racial injustice that has ran amok from generation to generation. He was a social activist who voiced to tragedy of African-Americans living in fear of never seeing the life of justice brought to their suffering, and that is only a slice of made him of one of the most influential rappers of his generation before his murder in 1996. But how well does his legacy translate through the lens of director Benny Boom in this biopic focusing on his the late man's life? To be fair, it has its noble intentions. But the storytelling and direction never reaches a powerful edge when portraying the life of the late rapper, and the result is a biopic that fails to leave a lasting impact. For a film centering on such an influential icon, this one feels a missed opportunity. The film follows the shocking story of Tupac Shakur (played by Demetrius Shipp Jr.), a young African- American growing up on the violent streets of Brooklyn, then Baltimore before trotting all the way to the other side of the country of Oakland, California with his mother (played by Danai Gurira) and sister. Witnessing the racial injustice perpetrated by the police and white supremacist gangs, Tupac decides its time for African-Americans to have a voice. Landing a record label, Tupac's career as a rapper takes off as he scales the ladder of success in the music industry, while pitted in a battle against the law enforcement and his ill-fated friendship with fellow rapper Notorious B.I.G. (played by Jamal Woodard).

    Two years ago, F. Gary Gray shined his light on the legacy of the influential rap group N.W.A. in the biopic 'Straight Outta Compton', a film that draws parallels to how rappers ignited activism against racial injustice through the uproaring energy of their music. This movie worked as a powerhouse not only because its electrifying atmosphere, but also because it struck deep into the heart of the legacy the rap group planted on the rap genre as well as the African-American society. 'All Eyez On Me', deriving its title from his last studio album before his death, barely reaches any of these heights. Opening up the film is Tupac Shakur being interviewed about his past while incarcerated in prison for wrongful rape charges, which serves as the framework of the story. From the unsettling, yet powerful showcase to his childhood, to the inauguration of his career as a rapper with attitude, the story delivers a vibrant showcase of the rapper's attempt to raising his voice against the racial tragedies that defined the lives of colored-skinned citizens growing up in the hood. Each scene the rapper clashes on screen to spray the air with a lip-smacking rap number, there is a vital energy to be felt. And thanks to the performance by Demetrius Shipp Jr. who exhibits an absorbing resemblance of Tupac, these scenes work quite well. But when diving on the legacy that roared from the career, the story feels very shallow. Director Benny Boom attempts on hitting a strong point by tapping into Tupac's social activism, but too often plays things safe, and by the halfway point, completely drops that crucial element. During the final third, it grows significantly unclear which the direction Boom is trying to take. The scenes covering his time in prison add no flair and only hinder the pacing. At the end, audiences will leave hardly knowing anything they didn't already know about Tupac while the legacy of the acclaimed rapper is left hampered in threadbare storytelling that bears more unanswered questions than definite answers of how he made to be such an influential figure in the first place.

    All Eyez On Me may bear some gracious intentions, but sadly leaves much of its potential buried under Benny Boom's approach less-than- remarkable approach to its subject figure. The best thing that can be said about this biopic is that is respectable and shines with moments of ebullience. But for a film touching on the life of a highly influential figure, it feels more surface level than impactful.

    Summary (no spoilers)

    This movie tells us the true and untold story of the legendary rapper, actor, poet and the activist Tupac Shakur.

    My Review (no spoilers)

    This was one of the biography movies that I was looking forward but due to some bad acting and directing was not able to enjoy it to the fullest. We all know 2pac so he deserved a much better biography movie than this. This movie made his biography look really boring and uninteresting. The only thing I enjoyed in this movie is the music between intervals. Overall an awesome biography torn to pieces by some lame acting and directing.

    My Recommendation

    No don't watch this movie instead Google about him to learn more and YouTube for his songs.

    I'm not gonna ever watch it again, its not like notorious and straight outta Compton, there's no drama it feels like ur watching a soap opera rather than a tupac shakur biopic what a waste. sure the trailers looked fantastic but the movie itself is just garbage. I had heard it wasn't that good and everyone was right, it was gay. they gotta really redo this even if they use the same actors, stupid director ruined everything, this movie should have been about pac I mean it didn't even feel good to watch I was disappointed with it, what the hell kind of tupac biopic is this?
