Boom’s film (penned by Jeremy Haft, Eddie Gonzalez, and Steven Bagatourian) initially reads as a timely rallying cry around Shakur’s legacy, before devolving into a paint-by-the-numbers biopic that unspools with as much energy as a Wikipedia entry.
All eyes on me is a great movie that’s is based on a true story. It is about a man named Tupac who was a rapper making it big in America. He was the face of hip hop, and had a lot of supporters. But he did run into a lot of trouble with the police and made quite a few enemies. Tupac had rough life as police would stop a lot of black people back in those days for no reason at all, and would treat them different to others. But society was harsh like this. But I believe this movie gives people a reality checks as there is a lot of deaths and makes people realise life is to short. This movie does have an age rating which means kids are not allowed to watch it as there is a lot of violence and explicit scenes, which means it is only for adults. Paying to watch this movie is worth the money as it is an interesting and action filled movie. I definitely recommend this movie to others and to people that love watching action and violent movies, this movie is definitely the one to watch. In my opinion I would also definitely give this movie a high rating on the quality, story line, actors and the setting of the movie. Overall this movie is the best so far that I have watched and I think that everyone else will enjoy it for sure.
While there is a propulsive energy to some of the film, there is also a sense that a lot of territory is being covered. And not all of it – a nit-picking examination of Tupac’s contractual woes for example – is as dramatically compelling as the central arc of Tupac’s bright-burning stellar rise and fall.
All Eyez on Me is one of the most useless music biopics ever made — it’ll be too confusing for newcomers and too underwhelming for those familiar with the work and the life of rap prophet Tupac Shakur.
The general audience views of this movie is shaped by which Tupac you loved in his music. If you liked the more aggressive thug life personification he portrayed then this movie isn't for you. If you appreciated Pac as more of the artsy and modern revolutionary then you'll like it. Now what's wrong with this film it's choppy and rushed at many points, especially when it came to the music video performances. Once you start grooving and embracing the **** its a hard cut to something else. This was true about many none musical scenes as well. I guess it was due to the amount of things that happened in his life but LT Huton and Benny Boom needed to do a better job. This film simply failed to connect to audience fully with any of the characters. Now even with all that said, it was still a good film but not the classic some hoped it be. I understood why it wasn't and that's because Tupac was simply a great artist, actor and thinker not Scarface. He had an interesting life and at the very least that was conveyed in this film.
Not sure what's with the smear campaign on here among users but this film isn't awful. It is sloppy and ham-fisted and overlong, sure, but it's not awful. It is basically the TV movie version of STRAIGHT OUTTA COMPTON, with all the concert scenes being the highlights. Sure an icon like Tupac deserved a great vehicle to tell his story, but this one ain't half bad.
Once I saw the "All Eyez On Me" movie, it was all filler but no substance. And that's why this movie bores me to death. The acting was great, though both Jamal Woolard and newcomer Demetrius Shipp, Jr. stole the show and deliver solid performances of two of the most decorated and storytelling iconic rappers ever, 2Pac and The Notorious B.I.G. I just didn't like the Jada Pinkett one in the movie because trust me, she didn't act like the star who I know and loved today. It's just the characters that is totally messed up big time (not Biggie and 2Pac). The story... What story? It's like every 2Pac fan knows that he influences on what can happen if people doesn't change for a better life when it comes to violence, gangbangers, etc. and showcasing that 2Pac is not your ordinary auteur of rap, but he is a definitive hero in all of us and after his career cut way too short during the controversial battle between East Coast and West Coast rappers started to turn heads and all led to one of the worst tragedies in the Hip-Hop landscape and still remains unsolved to this very day. And that's why I lost touch with a forgettable script only if you could master the art of rap biopics if used properly in the vein of "Straight Outta Compton" (one of the most talked-about biopics of all time) remembering the good times and the bad times N.W.A has been going through from humble beginnings, contract issues, The LA Riots of 92, Ice Cube and Dr. Dre went seperate ways and done solo careers altogether, until "Eazy-E" Wright succumb to AIDS and that's how you make a biopic that is very edgy, raw, and exquisite. As for "All Eyez On Me," this didn't quite fit the picture. I'm also pissed off at the end of the movie where they didn't mention about 2Pac's mom and widow, Afeni Shakur, who passed away last year due to cardiac arrest at 69. For a movie that somehow trying to reminisce the late rapper's rise to **** and his ability to make peace not war is very insulting. Releasing the movie to theaters just came after 2Pac's posthumous 46th Birthday and now a member of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Class of 2017 is that nobody doesn't want to pay a ticket to see this movie, always listen to his music and spread the message to everyone why they still listen to 2Pac every time his messages will inspire a generation. "All Eyez On Me" is the worst movie of 2017 (so far).
It may seem as if the crew behind this film knew what they were doing. All Eyez on Me has one job to accomplish... guess what that was. You know, if they would probably work more into the effort, probably this might as well be enjoyable, but also forgettable compared to the other movies released this year. Instead, what they just give us is just a poor man's excuse to get money by doing absolutely nothing.
