One of the best music documentaries I have seen in a while. The film really does a good job of putting a story together. Big Pun was a legend and a hero to many of those pursuing their dreams.

This is a collector's edition for those music fans worldwide!

Big Pun was one of the best mcs in the game. The movie is produced and directed well. There are a few similar products out there; this one is the most official.

RIP Big Punisher

this dude was a great MC. as far as the movie. I was glad to see it, a lot of things I already knew though others dvds but this one was well put together and it had people talking about pun the man as equally as his music and they didn't go over board at all. I say if you a fan of hip-hop and pun get this.

Vlad Yudin's "Big Pun: The Legacy" runs more like a tribute than a documentary to the most talented Latin rapper of all-time, Christopher Rios. The film is roughly 90 minutes of Pun performance footage and interviews with family and rappers who were close to him. There are a number of high profile rappers thoughts on Rios including, Raekwon, Ghostface, Method Man, Mobb Deep, Xzibit, B-Real, etc. The problem with "Big Pun: The Legacy" is that almost none of the darkness is explored. There is little to no mention of his abuse of his wife and children (both physical and verbal). Also, the making of Capital Punishment or like a track by track synopsis of this classic album is completely absent from this film. Pun's enormous weight gain and ultimate demise are chronicled well, as is his rise to fame as a top-notch rapper and lyricist. But, again there is not enough depth here to consider this a serious documentary. The bottom line: For hardcore heads only, all others should rent before buying.
