Tupac Shakur was an icon of hip hop during the ’90s, enjoying phenomenal success and multi-platinum album sales before his death in a drive-by shooting, aged 25.
Taking its title from his fourth studio album, this sprawling biopic charts the rapper and sometime actor’s rise from his turbulent youth and formative years performing with Digital Underground, to a controversial solo career full of incendiary lyrics, accusations of misogyny, and multiple arrests. With his bling growing in proportion to his success, Tupac emerges as a young man driven by a resolute desire to change the world, imbued at an early age by parents with revolutionary ideals. All Eyez on Me is certainly thorough in presenting the facts on his short life, but tends to gloss over the unsavoury elements and never truly gets under the skin of its subject.
