    I found this gem while browsing the store. The price was almost a steal.Marley is the definitive life story of the musician, the revolutionary, the legend and the Man. It covers his early days to his Superstar status. Made with the support of the Marley family, the film features rare footage, never before seen performances, previously unreleased music and interviews with those who knew him best. This movie also comes with an exclusive Limited Edition Bonus Disc.An excellent film, an excellent price.

    As an avid fan of the Tuff Gong, I possess the older documentaries, 'Prophecies and Messages', 'Caribbean Nights', and Rebel Music'. This is easily the best one produced so far. Even people new to the man and his music will enjoy this film. Would've loved to have seen more children interviewed for this one, but I understand you can only do so much given the time constraints. Nevertheless, it's a must see. Bless

    I've always been captivated by the life of the legendary Robert Nessa Marley Sr. & the mark that he made not only in music but the way he changed the lives of a nations people. I was a little disappointed that they didn't interview all of his children ie. Ky-mani Marley because I feel like they were leaving some things out of his story. We will never know the entire story but this will definitely soothe my craving.

    Bob Marley was a reggae superstar who crossed over into the mainstream. Kevin MacDonald's film explores his life in an honest way that lets you see the man behind the legend. The movie itself is great. The bonus disc in this Best Buy exclusive version features a couple of live performances (on DVD, not in high-def), but I wish there was something more substantial (interviews, behind the scenes footage, etc.)

    I have many different Bob's videos. This doc might have said one or two things that I have heard before, but this one in particular seems to me a little refresh from others that I have seen. I am not saying that the other docs are bad. I enjoyed a lot the other ones. But at the same time, I can say this new doc is fresh and not a bad purchase at all. Buy it and enjoy it. Good extra features as well.

    I have always loved Marley's music. Reggae is a great sound and Marley's music has a message. This biography interviewed many different people, musicians with which he worked, family members, etc. Insight from many different people made it more of a true picture of Marley, as a man, musician, and leader of the world. Best biography by far. Irie.

    Definitive Marley

    Although overlong and a little thin, this is the most complete documentary of Bob Marley I have seen. Considering his lasting influence as the premiere reggae musician, it warrants recommendation on that score alone. I've seen it. I'm happy I did, but the rewatch factor is low. I'd rather put on Live at the Roxy and jam.

    I'm a huge fan of Bob Marley, and have seen documentaries about him before. This one was very well presented, and successfully captured the true essence of this legend. I was particularly impressed they were able to document live footage of his last days. A big thank you to his family, who allowed us the privilege of seeing his life's journey.
