Tupac - Resurrection Reviews

Ed Gonzalez
Slant Magazine

It'd be easy to write off Paramount's Tupac: Resurrection as a cheap publicity stunt.

Cinemania

Tupac's evolution as an artist showed us a young man who was an activist, involved in the community, who showed signs of becoming a more self-aware and self-critical artist, as his music moved from the political to the personal.

Gripping documentary, see it with your teens.

Cole Smithey
ColeSmithey.com

The winning conceit of producer/director Lauren Lazin's flamboyant documentary about the life of Tupac Shakur is that the late rapper's voice is the primary source the audience hears.

Kam Williams
Afro-American

Whether he's dead or alive, this film reveals Tupac to be a scared, skinny kid with a gun, and a vulnerable human being who could easily be pierced by bullets, just like the rest of us.

| Original Score: 4/4

Lessons of Darkness

A dishearteningly incomplete portrait.

The film would have been strengthened if it had been a little more willing to challenge Tupac's behaviour.

A must-see not only for fans of Shakur's music but for anyone who appreciates a well-told life story.

State Journal-Register (Springfield, IL)

The film gives a fine sense of why Shakur's fans carry the torch for his legacy. But it's better from the perspective of that spirit on the streets, not up in the clouds.

Ken Hanke
Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)

Content to be a kind of Valentine to the slain rapper -- so reliant on recycled MTV footage that it feels more like a Behind the Music special than a feature film.

A balanced, insightful portrait of the provocative hip-hop icon.

Docs like this help to banish the fear of movie audiences that non-fiction pics are nothing but talking-heads bore-fests.

"Tupac: Resurrection" is one of the most eerie documentaries you'll ever see.

MTV offers an airbrushed portrait that does nothing but perpetuate the myth of an 'angelic' hoodlum.

Take away the typical lush life or hard life images you associate with rap, and Shakur's struggles are common

Austin Chronicle

Lazin's documentary may be somewhat one-sided -- Afeni Shakur's involvement guaranteed that -- but it's still immensely enlightening, and a genuine gift to Tupac's fans.

Don't expect investigative reporting.... Tupac: Resurrection is a trip through a man's head.

Film Journal International

Tupac sold more records after his death than when he was alive. Ultimately forsaking clarity and insight, Tupac: Resurrection is geared firmly towards that audience.
