All Eyez on Me attempts to reconcile an iconic figure with his very complex life. Its important commentary on race, however, gets overshadowed by technical problems.

Structurally the film has problems, but the movie finishes strong with Boom doing a good job of building some tension in the final moments leading up to the fatal Las Vegas drive-by shooting.

It's a closer call than you might think, but All Eyez on Me sells Tupac's life short.

All Eyez on Me is a sad contrast to the power of Tupac's words that have captivated fans over the years.

[T]he weak screenplay doesn't inspire viewers. While the focus is always on Tupac, there is not enough material to form an emotive connection with him as a person.

ALL EYEZ ON ME will, without a doubt, have value to a viewer - and even though this is a hugely flawed film, this man's life will forever be fascinating to observe and cherish

Tupac fans won't need a reason for watching this movie. But if you are wondering whether it does justice to the beloved artist, then yes it does and you must not miss.

For most of the 140 minute running time the film plays like a bio-pic suffering from ADD -- unable to focus on elements of Shakur's life that could have given more insight to his legacy.

Legends never die. The legacy also doesn't but there's sadly nothing here to further it.

A hollowly pretentious biopic that's equivalent to talking to the biggest Tupac fan for 140 minutes.

Overlong, fawning, and with a straightforward narrative style that makes the story of Shakur's life plod along, All Eyez on Me (the title coming from one of his albums) is for the most dedicated fan only.

While a good production provides audiences,... glimpses of the art form and its significance to America's musical legacy, it does not compensate for [its] hackneyed screenplay, with its confusing narrative and utter lack of character development.

When the anticipated conclusion hits its climax we feel relief at the ordeal coming to an end and no sense of the travesty that was the extinguishing of a bright, misunderstood and mysterious light.

All Eyez on Me is absolutely awful. It's a collection of scenes showing us events without any tissue connecting the narrative. Nothing here is engaging, which is a shame because it's very clear that Demetrius is giving it his all

Since it's Tupac, the music being brilliant is a no-brainer. However, unlike biopics on rappers in the past like Straight Outta Compton or 8 Mile, viewers who aren't aware of the legacy of Tupac, won't quite be able to connect with the film.

By comparison with Straight Outta Compton, this is lightweight, linear stuff.

It's often so straightforward and celebratory that it lacks the rebellious spirit of its uniquely talented subject.

Disappointment overshadows the long-awaited biopic of one of the most influential music artists of all time...

While Shipp looks the part, that's about all that this neutered movie has going for it.

All Eyez on Me is a powerful film.
