Unsolved: The Murders of Tupac and the Notorious B.I.G. (2018)

TOMATOMETER

Critic Consensus: Unsolved's prestige aspirations don't always work in its procedural structure, but strong performances and an ambitious spirit to find truth in this real-world mystery create an engaging exploration of two of pop culture's most notorious influences.

Tv Season Info

Season 1 of the true crime series follows the investigations of the murders of Tupac Shakur (Marcc Rose) and The Notorius B.I.G. (Wavyy Jonez). In 1997, Detective Russell Poole (Jimmi Simpson) starts digging into Biggie's death and uncovers a ring of corruption that plagues the LAPD; in 2007, Detective Greg Kading (Josh Duhamel) re-opens Poole's now cold case with the help of a federal task force. Meanwhile, several flashbacks offer insight into Tupac and Biggie's lives, first as friends and then as enemies.

Unsolved isn't all that it could be or enough of what it should be.

Top Critic

At its core, this is a murder mystery, but set in a world that's also still a mystery to many. Check it out -- on the USA network of all places.

Irresolution has its own undeniable power and Hemingway has wisely played the strongest hand he holds. If no one can figure these murders out, that's a good yarn by itself.

The performances here are uniformly strong and the mystery around these two murders remains fascinating all these years later.

It's an accomplishment unto itself for a tale you may already know how it ends (or doesn't end), and even more so when you see how Long and Hemingway use the cold case as a Trojan horse to break into a way bigger picture.

There's not enough meat to any one timeframe to make a compelling drama.

... making each episode compelling and gorgeous even when the action on-screen is gruesome.

Apr 18, 2018 | Full Review…

Dual investigation of hip-hop homicides has strong content.

Mar 7, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

In an ensemble this solid, it can be challenging for one performance to emerge as a standout.

Apr 18, 2018 | Full Review…

Unsolved does subtly show us how the life and times of Biggie and Tupac have seeped into our public consciousness over the years. Their untimely deaths have turned them into unexpected martyrs whose ghetto gospel many now revere as canon.

Audience Reviews for Unsolved: The Murders of Tupac and the Notorious B.I.G.

An interesting look into the saga that were the Biggie and Tupac murders. They give great insight into the investigation, I just hope they presented more facts than theories. There are numerous theories re what occurred to each of the legends, yet the facts remain murky (at least thats what has been portrayed to the public). Heres hoping one day that the mothers of the deceased finally get their closure, as hard as that is to imagine. Regardless it was a fun ride down memory lane and the soundtrack was great.

I just finished watching this, and a great show. The investigation is quite complex and a bit confusing at times, and the switching from the different time periods can be a little bit unsettling, but still an excellent crime series overall. Once I started watching it, I found it very hard not to go over and continue watching the next episode.

a procedural cop drama that touches on the lives of tupac & biggie from time-to-time, but mostly plays out like law & order or true detective.

They got every detail of the entire story, how great. They Way its being done, following POole in 96 and kading in 06, is very clever and compelling.

Good show about great artists.

A GOOD WATCH. HAS A SORT OF SEASON 1 'THE WIRE' VIBE ABOUT IT, AND FUNNY ENOUGH A FEW CAMEOS. WILL BE EAGER TO SEE HOW IT FINISHES UP

And we still dont know whos the murder. Bad movie
