amazing casting! I'm not a Tupac fan, but I felt like it was a journey into the east coast- west coast rivalry which I've heard about for decades & now understand. Learning about his love for family and their history helped me understand more about Tupac and although I'm not in the industry to write a detailed review, it fed my mind enough to want to learn more about him and his journey. This peaked my interest to delve deeper into the world of gangsta rap and the people involved, friends and foes. The chess game of life on steroids.It's rare that I think about a movie the <more>
day after. I'm the moviegoer that wants to escape for a couple of hours and forget so I can focus on other things, but I thought about most of the scenes in this movie all of yesterday, so I won't forget it. That to me is a success! There's 2 kinds of people in the world, industry and non industry and I have to say I loved learning about this human and am ready for more. #bringit
All Eyez On Me is the best movie ever. The movie is made perfectly. The actor that plays 2pac plays 2pac perfectly. 2pac was the greatest black person of the hip hop era and this movie does an excellent job of showing that and also the incredible impact he had on America. All Eyez on Me is better than Straight Outta Compton. Straight Outta Compton made Eazy-E look weak and soft. All Eyez on Me shows 2pac as the ultimate gangster. Definitely go see this movie in the theaters as many times as you possibly can. And support the legacy of the greatest rapper of all time ... 2Pac.
Outstanding (by andreame-98028)
I have been a die-hard fan of Tupac for the past 15 years. I too had a very difficult upbringing, and nothing provided the comfort and motivation I needed during those difficult times quite like Pac's music. All Eyez On Me did a very good job of encapsulating Pac's life and his art. Does it cover everything about Tupac? Of course not, no movie can. He was a complex American idol, and if you want to learn more about him, there are books and other films on his life and art to check out in addition to this one. I would highly recommend his book of poetry, 'The Rose That Grew From <more>
Concrete' to get more insight into his raw talent, prior to him becoming a huge star. 'Tupac Resurrection' was also a good documentary about him. But AEOM captures his story in a real and entertaining way that is true to him, while also being accessible to those that aren't yet very familiar with Tupac. Tupac was a very rare combination of incredible talent, intelligence, and charisma, and that is why he remains so popular to this day. He was ahead of his time, and truly too good for this world. Definitely recommend this movie to all interested in learning more about him.
I didn't have any preconceived notions about this movie, after all there can only be one Tupac right. But the movie was awesome and not the least overcooked with stereotypical characters. However I was kinda expecting to see the dessert scene from California Love & a little more 90s Ghetto Fabulousness. The lead man Demetrius did an awesome job of playing Tupac had his eyes & scowl down pat , but didn't quite pull off the Wings n Abs. The movie sounds out some worthwhile take home messages young men & minority youth need to hear & I know they'll all be checking <more>
How can anyone hate this movie. I loved it. The details as to what happened during Tupac's life is told vividly. It had a lot of truth to it regarding racial relations that a lot of people wouldn't be able to handle but I loved every second. I think the actors were spectacular. You can see the emotion through every word.
Completely underrated film... (by retailnoob1980)
This movie has gotten a lot of hate...and I don't understand it. Fantastic acting, good pace, and very accurate at least a REAL 2Pac fan will know it is . Personally thought it was better than Straight Outta Compton, which was also a very good film. Demetrius Shipp completely embodies Tupac, it's so eerie how much he looks like him honestly. Very good movie that you should watch for yourself and ignore all critics and their opinions.
Demetrius Shipp Jr embodies Pac! (by dwcorlew)
Throughout the movie I was captivated by his performance, so much so that I rate this movie 8 out of 10. He studied Pac and channeled him into his performance flawlessly. I found myself focusing on his performance and how he portrayed Pac for about 80% of the movie. However, the storytelling seems to be inconsistent; jumping back and forth between his youth and early days up until his prison time in 1995. Personally I feel it had an impact on the flow of the movie. If they had started from day one rather than hopping back and forth I feel this movie could have been an easy 10 out of 10. It <more>
was wise to end the movie at his death, as the point of the movie was to explore Pac and his character and not the circumstances/ investigation after his death too deeply.
It was good, but no movie is without flaws. (by Crown_22)
I've read mixed reviews of All Eyez On Me before seeing it in theaters myself. Some reviews praised it and some were a bit harsh. I was a little worried while watching it but overall, I must say that I did enjoy it. The good things about it is that most of the actors played their part very well. Tupac, Afeni, Jada Pinkett, and Suge Knight were very well done, especially Tupac. Props to Demetrius Shipp Jr. The music throughout the movie was really good and played perfectly in the scenes chosen. I only have a couple of problems with the movie without going into too much detail. The editing <more>
of some scenes and the lack of detail with certain plot points. If this movie had flowed better an editing issue and went into more detail about certain situations in Tupac's life, it would've gotten an easy 10/10 from me. Nonetheless, good movie, no movie is perfect.
An interesting, if slightly uneven look at the short life and legacy of one of the most iconic figures in the world of hip-hop (by MrDHWong)
All Eyez On Me is the biopic about the iconic rapper/actor Tupac "2Pac" Shakur. Starring newcomer Demetrius Shipp Jr. in the lead role, the film brings to life the story of a highly influential musician by focusing on the person he was, rather than just who he was on- stage.The film showcases the life of the renowned hip-hop musician Tupac Amaru Shakur Demetrius Shipp Jr. , from his early years as the son of Black Panther Party member Afeni Shakur Danai Gurira , his rise to fame as a rapper and actor, his time in prison, to his fatal shooting in 1996 at the young age of <more>
25.Featuring a terrific performance from Demetrius Shipp Jr. as Tupac, All Eyez On Me is an interesting, if slightly uneven look at the short life and legacy of one of the most iconic figures in the world of hip-hop. Shipp is not merely a dead ringer for the real rapper, he embodies all of Tupac's raw emotion and passion for what he stood for. Danai Gurira, best known for playing Michonne on The Walking Dead, also shines as Tupac's mother Afeni Shakur. She herself would be an interesting individual to make a biopic about. The soundtrack is fantastic, just about all of Tupac's best songs are featured, from the socially conscious "Brenda's Got A Baby" to the controversial diss track "Hit 'Em Up" aimed at his former friend and fellow rapper The Notorious B.I.G. The one major issue I have with the film is that it just seems to glance over what inspired Tupac to rap in the first place. I would have preferred if the filmmakers had included a scene of Tupac's childhood with him listening to the music that gave him that spark of creativity that helped him develop his style of rapping.I rate it 7.5/10
