Outstanding, thorough, often moving documentary about the tragically short life and huge influence of musician Bob Marley... by any fair measure, a great music documentary.– Full review

Macdonald and his editor have built a collage that really communicates in vibrant, cinematic language. Of course, it is about a musician, so rightly, it is wall to wall music– Full review

It wants to show us the man behind the famous dreads, beatific smile and durable songs of love, hope and longing. In this task it succeeds admirably.– Full review
Scott Bowles, USA Today
Sprinkled with riffs, concert footage and home videos, the family-authorized documentary does what the artist usually did: When in doubt, return to the beat.– Full review
