Synopsis The life and death story of Notorious B. We all know how it ends, or should they have added more to the story for dramatic effect so we could then talk about how fake it was, and how it didn't really happen that way?. . For those that loved B. He left a void, and hip-hop hasn't been the same since he left us.
Also Pac, though I am a huge fan of his music as well, is just a supporting character, this movie wasn't about him, it was about Christopher Wallace, the man, the son, the father and the husband. This is a one-sided, shallow view of a person's life. Of cours things are going to be left out, it's inevitable,seeing as how you can't fit 24 years of someone's life into 2 hours of film, they put in the parts that were relevant to the story of how he came up, his brief career which introduced him to us all, and his tragic ending. . I for one think B.
This film gave me a new respect for Christopher Wallace. It's a story told as though a mother is speaking of her lost son who could do no wrong. Biggie fans want to remember his legacy flawless and that can be understood. For the people saying that the movie was anti-climatic, what was the climax supposed to be? I for one was touched, I bobbed my head, I laughed, I reminisced and I cried, and for 1 movie to evoke that many emotions, I say it's a job well done. I never understood how the East Coast West Coast feud got started.
Reviewed by jessmix 8 Back in the 90's as a teen, I never really got in to Biggie's music or lyrics. They told it the way it happened It seems that many people are forgetting that this was a movie about someone's life, not somethingfabricated or concocted simply for the purpose of entertainment. I get sick of people making comments with no basis or foundation. His intelligence and how he tied that in to his passion for music and lyrics. . We could have seen a more developed, well-rounded and truthful character. G would be proud, so if you are one of those people that don't even like rap music, then here's some advice:don't even post a comment, better yet don't go see the movie, keep your negative comments to yourself.
Recommendation: Why not learn who Biggie was by beefing up the content of the supporting cast. What good would that have done to his legacy to fill the movie up with speculation about who did what, if anything it just would have reignited the war between east and west for trying to implicate people in the shooting. G he was special to us, and deserving of his story being told just like anybody else who has left us and had their story touch our lives. This movie was made for you. Reviewed by sofiadesigns 5 That should have been the title of the movie.
Everything about this movie glorified Big. If I didn't know any better, I would assume the only way she came up was by f'king Biggie. It is supposed to tell a story,his story and if you are a true fan of B. He had a dream as a child and in the end he achieved that dream of not just becoming a success as a performer, but a success as a father to his children, a good son to his mom, and a good man to himself. The purpose was to show that behind the persona of Big Poppa was a real person, a person that loved and was loved by many people. Honestly its silly to be upset about the fact that it doesn't tell you who shot Pac, or B.
Christopher Wallace , who came straight out of Brooklyn to take the world of rap music by storm. . . . . .
