Di­rected by Benny Boom. Star­ring Demetrius Shipp Jr, Kat Gra­ham The biopic of Tu­pac is no Straight Outta Comp­ton, but it’s not quite so bad as some re­views sug­gest. Boon’s film chan­nels the biographic de­tails through an im­pres­sive ensem­ble of ac­tors. Shipp Jr, the new­comer who plays Tu­pac, has swag­ger, charisma and looks the part. In com­mon with Straight Outta Comp­ton, All Eyez on Me lightly touches on a larger his­tory. Still, though per­fectly en­ter­tain­ing, this long-awaited film fails to co­a­lesce into three acts. 16 cert, gen re­lease, 140 min
