A very insightful documentary that reverberates with emotion and intelligence.
I watched this with someone who knew little to nothing of Marley and they came away wanting to get all of his albums. Brilliant!

Long and complete, I had to take multiple sittings to finish this documentary but it was well worth it. It took an as unbiased approach a documentary can. It showed the bad and the good in a simple non-judgmental manner, almost like a rastafari! It did not make Bob Marley God as he is in Jamaica but showed glimpses of why he attained that position, at the same time did not make him the devil of drugs which some people claim him to be. Great watch for music lovers and Marley fans!

What I liked most about this film is it really digged deep behind the inspiring music and legend of Bob Marley revealing what made him tick, and the true meaning of his impacting music. It will change how you view him as an artist and change the way you listen to his art. I have only more respect for the man rather than the legend. Thank you Bob...

A brilliant love letter to one of the true Legends of Music, Reggae or otherwise. Hats off to Kevin McDonald on this definitive & essential 145 minute documentary.

I'm usually all about documentaries, and especially musical artist. This was long and dragged out. Lots of great interviews but yes boring.

This movie gave me emotional feels after like I knew this was something great and exactly so Bob Marley is a human inspiration to humanity as he's influenced reggae, Rasta, and Jamaican societal struggle.

Amazing documentary that is full of soul and spirit

Beautiful, dense and quite complete, this documentary about the life and philanthropic work of Bob Marley, a man who has changed the musical landscape forever, is a must see for fans or newcomers alike. By focusing mainly on the music and the personal accomplishment of the man, by giving a voice to his family, friends and close circle but also to the people who enjoy his music, we get to see a multifaceted man, on a quest towards personal enlightenment and wishing to bring peace to the world through his words. Great documentary.

Great Film. The stories were very personal. The titles could have been done better to make them readable.

a powerful telling of a genius who brought people together through his music and vision, a documentary which is full of insight and new tellings of the life of one of the most brilliant minds in our generation

Unjustifiably long, but otherwise a fine documentary on the life and career of Bob Marley.

Exhaustive but at times also exhausting portrait of every weed smoking teenagers reggae hero. At 2.5hrs it out-stays it's welcome a fair bit after a really interesting first half. It never really delves too much into some of the darker and more interesting aspects of his life either. Perhaps because the film is co-produced by his son that explains the kid gloves approach but by the time you get to the hands across the nation conclusion you might have (like me) lost interest.

Markey is such a great documentary!
It is not for the person who is not familiar to Bob. The movie does not give you a factual information but It's more like to introduce you his political and philosophical views.
This movie should be interesting and be watched not only by melomans and its enjoyable during the entire runtime of 140 minutes.

Interesting as ever, Bob Marley's legacy lives on some 30 years after his death. This documentary details his love and dedication to music, and the interviews with his loved ones show his immeasurable impact on everyone around him. Great work.

Awesome. I had no idea he died of cancer and poor medical advice. Nor, did I recognize the reach of his music.
½ December 28, 2014
Good and fascinating documentary but it feels as though the implications for the Marley brand have influenced Kevin MacDonald's reporting and the documentary stints on the spiritual aspects especially the reactions of Haile Salassie and Marley's last days.

A fantastic, and intimate documentary. One of the best.

An in-depth film/documentary about the fascinating and perplexing impact of Marley's music and iconic persona. His life and and his following still leave vibrations on today's society that are incalculable. It was dissected thoroughly and thoughtfully enough to solidify this documentary well.
