All Eyez On Me gets bad reviews

 

 

A drama about the life of Tupac Shakur is sprawling but sketchy in a standard biopic way, yet Demetrius Shipp Jr.’s performance nails the hip-hop superstar as the ferocious role-player he was.

Our expectations of hip-hop biopics may have been elevated by Straight Outta Compton, but they come back down to earth with a heavy thump in All Eyez on Me, a ploddingly pedestrian dramatization of Tupac Shakur’s brief, tumultuous life.
