Comments: If you're familiar with the events surrounding this film which played out over many years this won't add much. If you are not familiar, it's an overwhelmingly told pretty crazy story.

The doc is about pop culture. Broomfield must have assumed most people watching it would be at least mildly familiar with its myriad characters, and would probably have seen the first film he made about the subject almost twenty years ago. So this is sort of an update. In that context it works better because now that Suge Knight is in prison for a long time (nothing to do with Tupac or Biggie) some folks are more willing to talk.

Broomfield is trying to make the case that Suge called in a hit on Biggie (as revenge for Tupac's death) with an assist from the LAPD. Who killed Tupac, or rather why Tupac was killed, is less clear

Last Man Standing is also a tragic story about the culture of Death Row Records.

Summary: Last Man Standing takes at look at Death Row Records and how L.A.'s street gang culture had come to dominate its business workings, as well as an association with corrupt L.A. Police Officers who were also gang affiliated. It would be this world of gang rivalry and dirty cops that would later claim the lives of the world's two greatest rappers: Tupac Shakur and Biggie Smalls.Plot summaryAdd synopsis
