    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.

    The results are highly subjective perhaps, but highly entertaining just the same and make an interesting companion piece to Nick Broomfield’s "Biggie And Tupac."

    Takes a look at the man’s entire life and grants us an eye-opening look inside his brain. And now that the supposed be-all-end-all documentary has been made, let’s let the guy get some f----- rest, okay?

    Lazin has without question skillfully assembled an entertaining, strongly narrative nonfiction package.

    Detailed but, ultimately, one-sided.
  6. There's too much self-congratulatory showbiz overkill, and one is forced to wonder exactly who is getting paid, and how much, for leading this parade in his honor. Otherwise, this project makes it easy for anyone to understand the sanctified, semi-crazed star and the elements that created and destroyed him.

    MTV offers an airbrushed portrait that does nothing but perpetuate the myth of an "angelic" hoodlum.

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. Expand

    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. 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. Collapse
