    As you listen to his uncanny narration of Tupac: Resurrection, which is stitched together from interviews, you realize you're not listening to the usual self-important vacancies from celebrity Q&As, but to spoken prose of a high order, in which analysis, memory and poetry come together seamlessly in sentences and paragraphs that sound as if they were written.

    Tupac Amaru Shakur is riveting in Tupac: Resurrection. The rapper is a compelling, charismatic hero: articulate, well-read, politically radical, and movie-star handsome to boot (he in fact starred in Poetic Justice and Juice). Make that, was riveting.

    Resurrection is a revelation.
  4. It's no insult to Tupac to say that he was gangsta rap's greatest matinee idol, or that he lived the part only too well.

    One of the greatest documentaries I have ever seen. What separates this from the rest is the fact that Tupac himself (who died seven years before this was released) narrates his life story and takes us on a powerful journey. From his early days of poverty in Brooklyn all the way to his fatal shooting in Las Vegas in 1996. Loyal Pac fans will love this and those that didn't know too much about the slain rapper will be introduced into a musician many believe to be the greatest of all time. Full Review »

    This is a great movie, it's nice to hear the man for who he was and not who everyone wanted him to be. Peter J. get your facts straight. If selling out is getting out of jail the fastest way possible then by all means the man sold out, but who wouldn't? He was wrongly accused of a terrible crime, and All Eyez on Me is considered one of the greatest rap cd's of all time. Full Review »
