Bob Marley: One Love Movie Review

Bob+Marley%3A+One+Love+Movie+Review

An icon, a timeless figure, a legendary musician who transcended a once-unknown genre into worldwide critical acclaim. A man responsible for all different kinds of people listening to his music—ranging from different races and age groups to even vastly different countries! While also bringing all kinds of groups of people together with one commonality (the love for his music). Bob Marley is best known for his immense number of hit songs, and his talented songwriting ability, but there is more to the life of Bob Marley than his musical talent. 

To show the audience an even more broad view of the life of the iconic Bob Marley, “Bob Marley: One Love” was released on February 14th. The movie starred Kingsley Ben-Adir playing Bob Marley, Michael Gandolfini, and even a number of the Marley children as well. The much-anticipated movie was met with extremely high ratings from critics with a score of 99 percent on Rotten Tomatoes. Director Reinaldo Marcus Green stated in an interview his goal for the film was to “highlight Bob’s musical genius and legacy, that’s the core and his message on what he was trying to get out there.” Reinaldo goes on to talk about his determination to highlight Marley’s human side rather than the things he is typically known for. 

If you are a Bob Marley fan, you should head to the theaters to see this movie. Furthermore, I firmly believe if you are an overall fan of music, you should watch this film. I am a huge fan of all music and am eager to learn more about this extremely influential figure in music history and the process of how he made his hit songs. I’d also like to learn about the kind of person he was, what he was like as a father, his activist practices, and what he meant to the people of Jamaica. Go check out “Bob Marley: One Love” now while it is still in theaters!
