[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.

October 30, 2018
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 5.5/10
August 30, 2018
A hollowly pretentious biopic that's equivalent to talking to the biggest Tupac fan for 140 minutes.
Full Review | Original Score: 0.5/5
August 22, 2018
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.

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.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5

While Shipp looks the part, that's about all that this neutered movie has going for it.
September 13, 2017
Who knew such a riveting life could make for such a boring film?

August 14, 2017
Each vignette has a superficial sheen but collectively, the narrative lacks cohesion. Swelling music telegraphs the melodrama; the dialogue is forcefully delivered.
August 10, 2017
[All eyez on me] lacks a sense of depth, a deeper insight into what made Tupac Shakur tick.
July 12, 2017
For all Shipp Jr.'s heart, Boom's desire to cram every, single thing and a failure to unpack anything is its ultimate undoing.
June 20, 2017
Shipp Jr. fails to capture Pac's multiplicity, much less portray the depth of his talent.
June 16, 2017
An obvious failure, with cheap production values and muddled editing.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5
June 20, 2017
There is a sincerity in the film's performed characterizations that is able to carry entire scenes, but also a confusion in what it insists are the moments that were the most meaningful to the man.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5
December 28, 2017
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
October 4, 2017
Disappointment overshadows the long-awaited biopic of one of the most influential music artists of all time...
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
June 26, 2017
After a slow two and a half hours of haphazard filmmaking, disappointment was the only feeling that lingered.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/10
June 16, 2017
A loving tribute to Tupac Shakur, but its sloppy execution and scatterbrained story mean it will definitely not become the next Straight Outta Compton.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/5
June 22, 2017
Tupac's legacy deserves better -- and so do the fans.
June 28, 2017
The weakest link here is undoubtedly the script, which is strange, because this is a movie that should really write itself.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
