Rating for movie
29 December 2002 | by See all my reviews

This film is rated R for strong language, thematic elliments, drug content, strong violence against police. This movie is a documentary about Tupac's life. And they try to figure out Tupac's death. This is mostly about Tupac's death. This is a good but sad movie. You should see it.
