COMMENTS: THE FILM ALL EYEZ ON ME TELL THE TRUE STORY OF THE LIFE AND RISE TO FAME OF HIP-HOPLEGEND TUPAC SHAKUR, UNTIL HIS DEATH IN 1996. THE FILM EXPLORES THEMES OF POLICE BRUTALITY AND HARASSMENT, RAP MUSIC, RACIAL CONFLICT, GANG RIVALRY, FIGHTING FOR FREEDOM THROUGH MUSIC, THUG LIFE, CIVIL RIGHTS AND VIOLENCE.

THE THEMES ARE COMPLEX AND MATURE, AND SOME OF THE CONTENT IS PRESENTED WITH A SENSE OF THREAT AND MENACE, PARTICULARLY IN SCENES OF POLICE HARASSMENT OF BLACK MEN, AND SCENES OF BLACK ON BLACK VIOLENCE. THEMES ARE SOMETIMES PRESENTED IN A SENSITIVE MANNER, BUT OTHER TIMES IN AN ANGRY AGGRESIVE MANNER, PARTICULARLY MESSAGES THAT SEEM TO GLAMORISE VIOLENCE.

THESE THEMES AND THE WAY IN WHICH THEY ARE REPRESENTED MAY CONFUSE, UPSET AND DISTURB VIEWERS YOUNGER THAN 16 YEARS. THE LYRICS OF TUPAC'S SONGS (WITH THE IMPACT ENHANCED BY THE LOUD SOUND OF CINEMATIC FORMAT) MAY MISLEAD YOUNG IMPRESSIONABLE CHILDREN UNDER 16 YEARS. GLAMOURISATION OF THE NEGATIVE ASPECTS OF THE HIP-HOP LIFESTYLE, AND LYRICS WHICH SEEM TO DISRESPECT WOMEN, MAY BE MISLEADING AND THE MORAL WELL-BEING OF CHILDREN UNDER 16 YEARS MAY BE HARMED. THE VIOLENT WAY IN WHICH MATERIAL IS PRESENTED MAY ALSO LEAD TO DESENSITISATION, AND/OR MAY BE FRIGHTENING AND EMOTIONALLY UPSETTING TO YOUNG CHILDREN.
