Review: Over the years, I have seen many documentaries about the murder of Tupac and Biggie, which have all been conspiracy theories and made up stories from witnesses but this movie was very believable and quite shocking. The lead investigator, Greg Kading, put together a brilliant case against the real murderers of the two rap stars and the evidence was enough to put the major culprits, Puffy and Suge Knight, behind bars for a very long time but when the case got dropped and the evidence got shelved, it seems like Tupac and Biggie family will never get justice for there murders. The step by step viewing of the assassinations were very believable and the interviews with the various gang members were quite shocking. I just can't believe that the evidence didn't come out on a worldwide scale, because people are still making up there own stories about what happened on both nights of the murders. Anyway, I thoroughly enjoyed this in depth documentary, which doesn't look cheap like a lot that I have seen before. I honestly can't see why the law wouldn't take this evidence seriously because I am definitely convinced that Greg Kading has found the people who were involved and murdered Tupac & Biggie. Great!
Round-Up: This brilliant documentary was directed by Michael Dorsey, 37, who also brought you the Six Degrees of Helter Skelter, which is about the Manson family, Lost Airmen of Buchenwald, The Oyler House: Richard Neutra's Desert Retreat and Dearly Departed 1 & 2. The way that he describes how each murder took place, was great and the fact that he shows the real locations, made it even more believable. The real interview tapes that are used throughout the movie, also was a great touch, so I can definitely say that the cases have been solved, in my eyes.
I recommend this movie to people who are into their documentaries about the murders of Tupac and Biggie. 7/10
