"This movie is very powerful, and it delivered on the promises that were made by the producers. It puts to rest many of the legends and theories which surround the death of Tupac Shakur, and brings us facts. Even hardcore Tupac fans will learn things in this move that they likely didn't know.
The film is told mainly from the point of view of the bodyguards, who were there when the events of September 7, 1996 transpired. I had always felt that the Suge Knight/Death Row theory was the most likely explanation, and this film agrees with me. In Ancient Rome, when a trial for a crime was held, one question would be asked, which was "Cui Bono" or Who Benefits?
The people who benefited from Tupac's death the most are Death Row, Suge Knight, and Reggie Wright. With Tupac out of the way, they could get access to the master tapes, which would allow them hundreds of millions, and in addition to this, they didn't have to worry about paying Tupac the millions they owed him. They had the biggest incentive to commit the crime.
In this movie, veteran police officers also show how Tupac's murder had all the tell tell signs of an assassination. These includes having Tupac's bodyguards not carry weapons, isolating Tupac from most of his bodyguards, and boxing him in at the intersection at Flamingo and Koval, where he was distracted by females while his killers pulled beside on the opposite side, opening fire into the vehicle.
If Tupac's mother, Afeni sees this film, I hope she uses her financial resources to push the Las Vegas courts to take this case to trial. Due to the negligence on behalf of LVPD, Afeni should sue them as well. With all the evidence presented in the film, Tupac's case will be solved once and for all, and he can rest in peace, knowing that his killers have been punished.
I disagree with the previous reviewer that Tupac's case may never be solved. This movie makes it crystal clear who had the motive, opportunity, and resources to carry out the killing, and all we need is for all this evidence to be brought to court, and one of the greatest unsolved murders in history will be solved once and for all.
This film is a must have for all Tupac fans!"

"I thought Before I Wake was the best true account of Tupac by his bodyguard Big Frank, but this DVD documentary really goes into great detail about what really happened that night leading up to Pac being shot. I mean in this DVD the producers showed new footage of Tupac and a lot of documents to back up their information which I and the 20 people at my house when we all watched this incredible true account of Tupac's last day's agreed at the end of the movie. I encourage every Tupac FAN to buy this DVD for their collection and show/share this movie with everyone you can becuase it's a great message at the end of the movie, it really touched the people watching it the night I held a TUPAC FAN Screening at my home (which were my friends)a couple of the girl's cried toward the end of this documentary. Another good job by Pac's bodyguard and it truly show's the LOVE Frank had for his friend to continue after 11 years to give a effort like this to bring closure to Pac's death, my hat goes off to you Big Frank may God Bless You and bring Peace and closure for you and Afeni. As Pac always said One Love my brother."
Informative and thought provoking

"This documentary covers the events surrounding Tupac's murder in great detail. The bodyguards are interviewed throughout the entire film, posing problems with the police investigation and the lack of security for Tupac on the night he was gunned down. They insinuate that Suge Knight and his security company manager Reggie Wright were involved in a cover-up to assassinate Tupac. Apparently Tupac wanted out of Death Row Records and was owed millions in unpaid royalties. His murder may never be solved but this movie does a great job at posing some interesting questions and making Suge Knight look like a greedy conspirator."
