Tells the true and untold story of prolific rapper, actor, poet and activist Tupac Shakur. The film follows Shakur from his early days in New York City to his evolution into being one of the world's most recognized and influential voices before his untimely death at the age of 25. Against all odds, Shakur's raw talent, powerful lyrics and revolutionary mind-set propelled him into becoming a cultural icon whose legacy continues to grow long after his passing. ALL EYEZ ON ME stars Kat Graham, Lauren Cohan, Hill Harper, Jamal Woolard, Danai Gurira and Demetrius Shipp Jr. as Tupac Shakur.
This movie was hyped to be a wonderfully poignant look at an epic entertainer who made his mark on the world. It is extremely disappointing. With the exception of Tupac's mother, there is very little character development. Scenes are very rushed and end up seeming random, incomplete and not well interconnected. The movie jumps all over the place without developing the story line well. There are a load of "era" errors -- cars, cell phones, brands, etc... that weren't even around when Tupac was, but are all over in the film. This was just generally a horrible fail of a movie.
I was holding out a great deal of hope and left feeling like my 11 years old could have told the story better - by simply reading a book about Tupac.
This movie is a downright disgrace. There were so many ways it could have been better. It is shameful that this was even released. I really was hoping and expecting to at least be entertained. This movie just completely misses the mark.
It is a waste of time to view this movie. You will never get that time back. Just don't do it. Ya, it's that bad.
