I really liked it! I couldn't help but to make a comparison to Notorious, so I will say I wish the foundation-- more about Tupac's youth, etc.--would have been discussed. But it was a great MUST-SEE film for any hip-hop follower.

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.
Given the tragic and highly charged events it depicts, All Eyez on Me is oddly low on emotional bite, perhaps because it never feels real. As clean and polished and blandly overlit as a TV soap opera, Boom?s film looks and feels smaller than Tupac?s cinematic life story.
