How they managed to make a movie about a guy who went from poverty to fame to prison to fame again, before being shot five times and surviving, and then being shot four times and dying, into something as compelling as a tax return is anyone's guess.
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.
A lumbering, illustrated hagiography of the slain rap phenom Tupac Shakur that, in its efforts to exalt and exonerate the man, reduces him to a strangely passive figure: a sweet, goodhearted, brilliant kid to whom bad things keep happening.
It's a relatively straightforward biopic using conventional framing devices (including the liberal use of flashbacks) to tell the story of an extraordinary artist who overcame tremendous odds to become an American icon.
It's a slipshod movie convinced you're either too enamored to want anything besides an attention-deficit-disorder gloss over Shakur's accomplishments, or too dazzled by its startling-lookalike lead to care whether Shakur is given dimension or not.
