Biopics can either try to cover the highlights of a person's life, or focus on a single part of it. This one does the former, and it should have done the latter. The cast is great, and music blends in really well, and if this movie relates to something you are interested in then I am sure you will love it - but I would have preferred it focusing on either BIG in his early years, or, more preferably, the feud with 2pac. Having both did neither part justice. That said, BIG as they presented him, seemed like an under-achiever. He worked hard with his music, but mostly things seemed to just fall in his lap because of the people around him. If this is true or not, I don't know.
