    A Mediocre Movie About An Interesting Man
    I expected more from this movie, somehow everything in this movie seems mediocre to me.

    Kingsley Ben-Adir isn't bad as Bob Marley, but the script is kind of clumsy and sometimes confusing.

    As for that era and politics in Jamaica, if they already decided to put it in the movie, they could have explained it a little better. The average viewer doesn't know what's going on, they should have put some context into the whole story, it all seems confusing like this. The script should have been much better.

    The music is of course good in the film, but something is simply missing. Without Bob Marley's music, this film would be almost unwatchable.

    I don't know why the movie turned out so mediocre in the end, maybe because of the script, maybe because of the director or because of everything together, but it just ended up being neither particularly good nor particularly bad.

    It simply lacks that cinematic look, and in some parts it seems like a TV movie, unfortunately some things are too mediocre and in the end make the film just that, a mediocre achievement.

    I expected much more and ended up disappointed. The film is watchable and has some good moments, but nowhere near as many as it should.

    In the end, this is just a mediocre movie about an interesting man that maybe needed a better director and a better screenwriters.

    Good, But Not Exactly What I had Hoped For
    I decided to watch the documentary Marley before watching this movie. I'm so glad I did. I knew he was an amazing person, but I learned so much more.

    I was amazed at how bored I was at the beginning of the movie. It was a bit disjointed as well. I would have loved to see more of his story told straight through from beginning to end, or at least with more clearly defined flashbacks.

    I don't feel the actor captured Marley all the way. . He was good, but something was missing. When I watched Bob talk in the documentary he made you feel warm and endeared to him. His eyes held so much. There was just something special about him. The actor's speech and singing was good, but it lacked something I can't put my finger on. I'm not sure what it is, but I guess that's to be expected. How do you get all that Marley was into one person portraying him?

    The actress playing Rita, on the other hand, was amazing. I felt like I was actually watching Rita on the screen. She had her personality and how she managed Bob spot on. There were some inconsistencies to some of her story in the movie vs. The documentary, but she was a definite bright spot for me.

    The movie wasn't horrible, but for me it fell short of all that Bob Marley was. Hopefully, somebody new to Bob Marley will walk away from this film eager to learn more. The documentary, Marley, is a great way to do that. I even went back and rewatched it after seeing this movie.
