All Eyez On Me is hobbled from the start by a clunky framing device. Tupac Shakur gives an interview to a documentary crew during his 1995 prison stay, and we episodically flash back to his life as he goes from a kid in Compton to a star in LA. It’s a corny approach, saddled with rags-to-riches clichés and the aesthetic of a TV movie.

Not only a clumsy and often bland account of his life and work, but it also gives little genuine insight into his thought, talent or personality.

While there are are striking moments throughout, there's also a great deal which is simply corny or laborious, such as most of the material about Shakur's dealings with record labels.

A ploddingly pedestrian dramatisation of Tupac Shakur's brief, tumultuous life.

Even hard line fans prepared to concede that 'Pac is too complex and contradictory a figure to ever be truly captured on-screen will be shocked by how far this poorly scripted, dreadfully directed affair misses the mark of the man.

A 'best of' reel, but a very good one at that.
