All Eyez on Me captures the complicated life of Tupac and tells the story of how the prolific rapper, actor, poet & activist born Tupac Amaru Shakur grew into a legend.
Though there now are many artists who knew Tupac personally complaining of certain "inaccuracies" in the movie, the general consensus by those who have seen it in the US is that it is a fantastic movie, especially if you're a fan but even those who are not fans of Tupac say that it is a well-made film.
The film starts from his early days in New York City and we get to watch him evolve against all odds into being one of the world’s most recognized and influential voices of his time. Tupac’s raw talent, powerful lyrics and revolutionary mind-set turned him into a cultural icon and a Hip Hop Legend.
Tupac met his his untimely death at the age of 25 and his killer has still not been apprehended.
In his short life Tupac has not only captured the imagination of his generation but also of those older than him and many who were not even born yet when he was killed.
His lyrics are even studied at post-graduate university level and have been the subject of many PHD's either focusing on the literary content or the sociopolitical commentary contained in his revolutionary lyrics.
Tupac's legacy continues to grow long after his passing.
All Eyes On Me is directed by Benny Boom and stars Demetrius Shipp Jr. who plays the role of Tupac and Kat Graham as Jada Pinkett.
