Disgraced L.A.P.D. detective, Russell Poole (Depp), is a beaten man, unable to solve his biggest case - the murders of music icons Tupac Shakur and The Notorious B.I.G. After two decades, the case remains open. "Jack" Jackson (Whitaker), a reporter desperate to save his reputations and career, is determined to find out why. He tracks down Poole, and the two enter into an uneasy partnership to finally put this case to rest. As Poole relives the unbelievable story of power, corruption and crime, Jackson begins to unravel a growing web of scandal and deception. Relentless in their hunt for the truth, these two broken men threaten to crack the foundation of the L.A.P.D all the while fighting for their own.




  • Keeping this case from being forgotten…

    By Stephy Cyn
    While the details of this case have been publicized/vocalized in the past, it’s pretty incredible how those details/truth continue to be buried and silenced. I appreciate how this film highlights the case and there was a few details I had no idea about. I would have liked for this movie to be longer and even more in depth, but there was no bad acting and the end was so sad. Always been pretty clear Suge Knight is an aggressive orchestrator and both Biggie & Tupac deserve justice that I don’t know we’ll ever see that even after he’s gone.

    Good film. LAPD very dirty. Hard to believe this true.
  • Excellent film done with permission of the Wallace family

    Great film with many theories on the murders of Tupac and biggie. All star cast who bring with them their best performance on a film dedicated to the detective who was fighting for the truth. Highly recommended for police buffs and rap fans of the 90s.

    A great true story. If you’re a fan of hiphop, specifically BIG, you NEED to see this. Very entertaining.

    A must see. Similar to “Kill the messenger” there are movies and books that are a must see for anyone who wants to think using their own brains.
