  • Summary: Marley is a truly memorable documentary, and a glorious and fitting tribute not only to one of the biggest icons of reggae music but to a remarkable and fascinating man. From the very first jaw-droppingly beautiful aerial shot of Jamaica, Kevin MacDonald captivates you with his undeniable gift for documentary storytelling that really speaks to your heart.

  • Summary: An excellent documentary not only for fans of the music, but for anyone with a remote interest in Bob Marley. We learn about Bob's upbringing, how he becomes a musical god and how his music touches people, both politically and commercially.

  • Summary: The best Bob Marley doc to be made as of yet. I would recommend to any Bob or just hardcore music fans. The music and interviews are intertwined perfectly to present a comprehensive portrait of Bob.

  • Summary: While the journey of getting "Marley" to theaters was complex, (copious disputes over director/producers) it's documentation of the titular figure, to the audiences' dismay, is not nearly as intricate; his life, as delineated on-screen, although captured musically through some hit-nostalgic riffs, feels unfulfilled compared to his off-screen life that saw moments of controversy--one most notably leading to the untimely end of his young life.

  • Conclusion: The pace of the film is relatively slow but it builds into a very interesting documentary. At the end I felt a had learned a lot I didn't previously know and it is strangely uplifting.

  • Conclusion: I could not disagree with the previous reviewer more. This is a fantstic documentary that I found gripping. What I loved about this is the fact that it deals with all sides of Bob's character and does not paint him out to be a saint or put him on a pedestal. What it shows us is that Bob was indeed a great man whose music has touched millions the world over but he had his faults -which to me makes him a man I can relate to. I would highly recommend this Blu Ray.

  • Conclusion: Not impressed, in fact I watched 15 minutes and decided to elbow it. I don't want a history lesson on slavery, I want his music and life. Very disappointed with this.

  • Summary: Oder: The Music - The Legend - His Movie We're jammin' Der Musiker Bob Marley ist Inbegriff des Reggae. Ohne ihn wäre die aus Jamaica stammende Spielart der Popmusik wohl nie so bekannt geworden. Auch dreissig Jahre nach seinem Tod ist seine Popularität ungebrochen. Knapp 37 Millionen liken zur Zeit sein Facebook-Profil. Geboren wurde er im hügeligen Hinterland der Karibik-Insel als Sohn einer schwarzen Magd und eines weissen Draufgängers.
