Jada Pinkett Smith Slams Tupac ‘All Eyez On Me’ Biopic

Published: Friday 16th Jun 2017 by Sam

The long-awaited Tupac biopic ‘All Eyez On Me’ finally landed in theaters today after battling years of hurdles – including the departure of not one but two directors.

However, the drama shows no signs of letting up.

Following questionable reviews and box office forecasts , actress Jada Pinkett Smith has hit out at the Benny Boom / LT Hutton production. She’s taken specific issue with the portrayal of her relationship with ‘Pac – someone she was close friends with.

Writing on Twitter moments ago, Smith said:

Yikes!

Opinion seems pretty divided; some are professing their love, while others are dragging for filth.

Have you seen the movie? If so what did you think? Haven’t watched? Will you? Let us know…

Your thoughts?

    Ok. Well, we all know that biopics usually aren’t a 100% accurate depiction of exactly how things played out IRL. These are, afterall, MOVIES played up for drama…while trying to squeeze a lifetime of events into 2 hrs. Some things are gonna be twisted, fabricated, cut out and even invented for entertainment purposes.

      Very true. Most likely Jada just wanted to get the truth out there for those folks who do believe that everything portrayed in biopics is 100% true.

      The problem is that Pac’s life doesn’t need to be played up and exaggerated for the screen. The movie presents itself as being informative and claims to show audiences who Pac really was, all while feeding a bunch of lies for the sake of entertainment. You either want to inform or you want to entertain; you can’t have it both ways and respect the audience at the same time – not with a biopic like this.

      You sound so stupid. Don’t do a movie about me if you got to lie to make it interesting.

    His own mother didn’t approve of the movie either and the marketing made it seem like it was just capitalizing off of Straight Outta Compton’s success. The difference being that movie was actually good, mostly accurate, and acclaimed; this straight up looks like Lifetime.

      Child his mom is gone, what did u think would happen. Just like when Barry Hankerson passes, Aaliyah’s music will be streamed everywhere with or without her mom or brothers permission. Just being honest!

        Duh I know that? I could care less whether this straight-to-dvd mess was being released or not, it’s trash, the end. Even Twitter is dragging it for filth and making the fiction of this into a meme. Thankfully an authorized version is being directed by Steve McQueen, who I know will do him justice.

    Why they didn’t use her as a consultant on the movie? make no sense

      Who the hell is she?

    On one hand, I applaud her for getting in front of speculation and eventual questions and speaking up about events that didn’t actually take place.
    On the other hand, I don’t like the fact that this has come out literally right on the movie’s opening day. You can’t tell me that Jada didn’t have the ability to obtain an early copy of the movie to see how she was depicted in it. Given the fact that the movie involves her in some way, she must have had the ability to gain at least some sort of idea of how she would be portrayed, otherwise she wouldn’t have given her blessing for her name to be affiliated with the movie. That’s kind of foul for her to put that out there like that on the day the movie comes out.
