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.
John Singleton was originally supposed to direct the film, but the studio and Singleton couldn't agree on how Tupac was to be portrayed in the film. Singleton eventually left the project completely but has since stated that he still hopes to make his own film about Tupac on his own terms some day. He was also the only director to have been given Afeni Shakur's full blessing to tell her son's story. Afeni Shakur Davis died on 2 May 2016, aged 69 from a heart attack, thirteen months before the release of the film. See more »
To be honest, this movie gets way too much hate than its supposed to. Judging from the trailers, and Biggie's biography, this was not something i was going to see on the theater. I was really let down by biggies biography so my expectations were not that high for this movie. I saw it last week, almost a month after it hit theaters and I have to say I was neither too let down nor was i impressed. The movie showed me what I already knew about Tupac, and i didn't see anything worth all the hype LT Hutton put into this movie. Apart from some things being pointed out as being false by Jada and others who were close to Tupac, you can get an actual first hand account of the events highlighted in this movie from documentaries and videos in YouTube. The people who developed the script for this movie did not in any way bother themselves with showing us detailed events in Pac's life, and every scene seemed to be missing something once we jumped to another scene. Even though he did his best, Shipp wasn't really convincing as Pac, and most of the acting in the movie was sloppy. Kat was okay as Jada. What annoyed me the most was Snoop's voice over. It was just stupid. On overall, the movie could have been better, especially considering the caliber of the person it revolved around. Tupac was a great story teller and poet, and he deserves to be rightfully acknowledged. He wasn't perfect, but he made the most out of the little time he had on this earth to do all the good he could for himself and those he cared for. I really hope that someday the right studio will actually buy the rights to make these biographies about artists and completely invest themselves in creating a rap movie universe. That way there wouldn't be any inconsistencies. In my view Straight Outta Compton was a great start, and the next movie should have picked up from where it left off, with the same actors reprising their roles where necessary.
