Rap legend Tupac Shakur's life was cut short in 1996 when he died as a result of multiple gunshot wounds. This film provides an authorized account of his life, with his mother Afeni Shakur serving as a producer. Also making it unique is the use of otherwise unattainable material from the MTV archives. Through audio and interviews recorded before his death, Tupac's story is presented along with his music, poetry, rare photographs and home movies.

Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this movie challenges the audience. Teens are going to want to see it because they like the music and the images of Tupac's "gangsta" lifestyle. This movie shows it like it is and you see how conflicted Tupac was. Arrested 12 times but also very caring about his community, he is not an easy person as a role model. Just know there is graphic everything here -- sex, violence, language, drugs, lifestyle and of course he dies at the end. But there's no getting around his influence and importance in the teenaged cultural world. As parents you can either go with the R rating and not let your kids see it. But if you do, please consider going with them.
