The reviews are in for the highly anticipated Tupac Shakur biopic “All Eyez On Me” and the consensus is mixed.

The film, out now, stars newcomer Demetrius Shipp Jr. as the late icon and follows him throughout his life, career and death. Directed by Benny Boom, it also features Jamal Woolard as Biggie Smalls and Kat Graham as Jada Pinkett Smith. Smith, who was close friends with Pac, took to Twitter Friday, June 16, to clear up what she said were false depictions of her relationship with the rapper.

50 Cent also weighed in on the film, posting on Instagram that fans were better off watching the movie on the Amazon Fire Stick rather than seeing it in theaters.

Others had similar reactions.

But some applauded the film, especially Shipp’s performance.
