Overview

Produced by MTV and the family of the slain rapper, Tupac: Resurrection is the only authorized documentary about the critically acclaimed musician's life and death. The feature debut of television director Lauren Lazin, the film compiles rare and never-before-seen film footage and audio clips to present a complete picture of Shakur's legacy. The film is presented on this Special Collector's Edition DVD in full-screen with the soundtrack available in both Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround Sound and standard Dolby Digital Surround. Optional English subtitles are also included. Along with the feature presentation, a plethora of supplemental material is included. Among the many bonuses are four deleted scenes, additional interviews, Tupac music videos, and a speech by Malcolm X. However, the disc's best feature is surely the audio-commentary track by Lazin and Afeni Shakur, the mother of Tupac. The film is also available on a widescreen DVD with the same features.

To hear tupac's story from Tupac himself is something fans have been waiting for. Tupac not only revolutionized rap with his music, but he changed the world with his life outside of music. This movie is the perfecr opportunity for fans to see the true and whole story.

Tupac fan, or not, this movie tells an excellent truthful story. It doesn't paint him as a hero, but does paint him as a real person. Oh, and he's a RAPPER not a RAPER. Christ, can someone remove that other guy's post. :)

I have been a fan of Tupac since 2pacalypse Now was released, back then he painted painful, yet beautiful pictures with his words, leaving the listener with thought provoking images of ghetto life in a way which reflected his Black Panther tutelage. Since his passing I have seen 2 or 3 documentaries on his life, but none of them have captured my imanination such as Resurrection. This is one of the most thoughtfully put together pieces of material which, by use of old news footage, gives one a sense of what it must have been like in the Shakur household and by way of Tupac's narration/interview footage it also allows one to catch a glimpse of the demons which haunted him during his short life, a young man who seemed to be watching the sands of time slip through the hour glass of his life whilst he selflessly fought for a cause only he seemed to understand. It's when you watch Resurrection you see the mature man Tupac came to be & you finally get to piece together what he was fighting for, there were negative points in his life, but here he answers all the questions one would possibly direct at him & it gives the viewer the opportunity to make their own mind up on the man.

Fans of 2Pac will praise this movie, and people who hate rap music will learn that all rappers aren't bad. This film doesn't make Pac look like a hero, but it shows that he's a regular person who changed music forever. It shows his good side, and his bad side. How dare people insult this work of art, just because he's a rapper. This is the best documentary that I've ever seen and if Pac can see this, he's smiling his a$$ off about this film. See it!
