"The Defiant Ones" examines the partnership between Jimmy Iovine and Dr. Dre - one the son of a Brooklyn longshoreman, the other straight out of Compton - and their leading roles in a chain of transformative events in contemporary culture.
Story of a promising high school basketball star and his relationships with two brothers, one a drug dealer and the other a former basketball star fallen on hard times and now employed as a security guard.
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.
Tupac Shakur's rap group, Outlawz, appear in several scenes. The two remaining members of the actual Outlawz, Rufus "Young Noble" Cooper and Malcolm "E.D.I. Mean" Greenridge appear as themselves in several scenes with Tupac throughout the film, and even have a few speaking parts. Actors portray Kastro and Napolean. The remaining members, Hussein Fatal, Yaki Kadafi, and Mussolini, are now deceased. See more »
I've never walked out of a film before. But I walked out of this one
I'll keep this short and sweet..
It was alright at first, it seemed to have promise and had me pumped to continue watching, but it was a slow downhill from there. Now I look back and think "what a load of crap"
Basically, it was WAY too long. I can't stand long films as it is, but this dragged and dragged and dragged. I was nearly falling asleep and the mrs kept asking if I was alright. No, I wasn't. I was bored. And tired. And waiting for the film to finish. That's not the way you want audiences to be when watching your film.
It seemed like it was made by university students, too, as opposed to ACTUAL filmmakers. It was well made if you're making it for a college/uni project. But for an actual film.. no way. The acting was a little off, the storyline was only semi-factual, it was too long and drawn out.
So we ended up walking out. I've never walked out of a film before. But I walked out of this one.
So before you watch the film.. don't watch it.
