Review: All Eyez on Me

14 July 2017 2:49 AM, PDT

This is the Pure Movies review for All Eyez On Me, starring Demetrius Shipp Jr., Danai Gurira, Kat Graham, Annie Ilonzeh, Lauren Cohan and Jamal Woolard, and directed by Benny Boom. It’s difficult to overstate the cultural impact of Tupac Shakur. Whether it’s inspiring Kung-Fu Kenny to make his 2015 masterpiece To Pimp a Butterfly, shedding a global light on the devastating social issues that perpetually haunted him (and are a blight on Western society to this day) or appearing alongside Snoop Dogg as a posthumous hologram at Coachella 2012, ‘Pac is the kind of hip-hop artist that even your gran could name. His legend looms large, lingering so fervently in the pop-cultural consciousness that even the greatest rap-sceptic is at least vaguely aware of his charisma, his social conscience and the mysterious circumstances surrounding his death. Any biopic is faced with an embarrassment of riches. »
