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.

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.

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.

Whether or not you agree with the theory espoused in this documentary, there is no question that it raises a number of very pertinent questions about Tupac's murder and the police investigation that has yet to name a single official suspect in the case. Let me go ahead and state the fact that I've only recently come to recognize the musical genius of Tupac Shakur, so I'm confronting the facts of this case for the first time. That being the case, I can't officially endorse the conspiracy theory laid out in this documentary, but I can say that it makes a lot of sense to me and is certainly something that should be pursued further. As one of the law enforcement experts interviewed herein says, the case should be brought before a grand jury - and let them decide if there is enough information to warrant a court case. Sadly, Tupac's murder has only been tried in the court of public opinion up to this point, and that has only led to all sorts of conspiracy theories about who killed him and whether he is in fact dead and gone. Tupac: Assassination goes a long way toward putting some of those conspiracy theories to rest.

Las Vegas detectives would seemingly have us believe that Tupac was just the victim of a random drive-by shooting. Pushed against the wall, they might throw their hands up and trot out assertions that many of the material witnesses refused to cooperate with the investigation, but it is clear that they did not conduct a thorough investigation of Tupac's murder. This is made clear by the fact that they failed to interview a number of the bodyguards protecting Tupac during his final days. Those important material witnesses finally get to tell their stories here in this documentary.
