Tupac Shakur: Ain't nothing to be worried about.
Afeni Shakur: Like all Black leaders you have a bullseye on your back and today it just got bigger.

Fails to inspire
17 July 2017 | by kmtwSee all my reviews

They said John Singleton was trying to defame Tupac with his script, I'm starting to wonder if they lied. It barely touches on his younger life, glosses over the main bits and moves on way too fast. The dialogue is boring. The controversial sexual assault scene did not go the way he said it went so I'm wondering how much more was fiction.

One of the biggest things I noticed was that Tupac was almost too perfect. People know he wasn't perfect, he was flawed, he was paranoid and he had a hot temper to go with it. This movie skips all of that. It's too scared to show anything that may put him in a bad light, but fans of Tupac accept his flaws and respect him regardless. Perhaps the next director who picks this up should remember that.

Although the acting wasn't too bad and mostly the script was shabby, I've always thought Romany Malco would be a better fit for Tupac since he has a stronger on-screen presence and more acting experience.

Someone needs to pick this back up and do a movie that actually fits his legacy, I'm not even a big fan of rap music or Tupac, but if the Biggie Smalls movie and NWA movie got such great reviews and actually did a good job, I can't imagine how annoyed Tupac fans are feeling that this is by far the weaker of the free.

My recommendation, do not pay to go see this movie at the cinema. It doesn't deserve any box office plaudits. It needs to bomb to put the people behind it to shame.
