See more of the life and times of The Notorious B.I.G. in this special Director's Cut version! Notorious is the story of Christopher Wallace who, through raw talent and sheer determination, transforms himself from a Brooklyn street hustler to become the greatest rapper of all time, The Notorious B.I.G. This story charts his meteoric rise to fame and his refusal to succumb to expectation. Produced by Voletta Wallace (BIG's mother), Wayne Barrowman and Mark Pitts (BIG's managers), Notorious challenges us all to redefine our notion of what is "The American Dream."

Metacritic Score

  • 70

    Los Angeles Times

    Through it all are the rhymes and the music, hugely enjoyable in their own right, and the long, large shadow of Biggie.

  • 70

    Variety

    A rock-solid biopic with a foolproof rise-and-fall storyline and a warmly nuanced performance by Jamal Woolard.

  • 60

    The New York Times A.O. Scott

    Notorious settles into a curious comfort zone; it's half pop fable, half naturalistic docudrama. Not a bad movie, but nowhere near as strong as its soundtrack.
