Consensus: Despite Demetrius Shipp Jr.'s fine lead performance, All Eyez on Me is mostly a surface-skimming, by-the-numbers biopic of a larger-than-life icon.

Time Out

This Wikipedia-page biopic races through the rapper's Major Life Events without ever getting to grips with the real questions.

The last 20 minutes or so of the film try desperately to create drama out of an ending we all already know, milking every moment for maximum ominousness.

Shipp Jr. fails to capture Pac's multiplicity, much less portray the depth of his talent.

All Eyez on Me is rarely more than a faithful adaptation of the rapper's Wikipedia entry, so fixated on name-checking every footnote of Shakur's public life that there is no space to explore the experience of the man himself.
