Movie Reviews

Almost but not quite
Third World | Bronx, NY United States | 12/05/2002
(3 out of 5 stars)

"It starts out really good then peters out midway on. Why is it that whenever Bob is about to go in depth about a particular subject, the filmmakers cut to him performing? How could they not address the Wailers break up? I mean they literally ignore it. Isn't the break up as significant as them getting together in the first place? Did Marley's music regress, progress or stagnate after Bunny and Peter left? How did Bob feel about Bunny and Tosh leaving? And what happened to Bunny anyway? You see him early on and then you don't see him again. Since he's the only one alive of the three, doesn't his opinion have more weight than most. All I'm saying is the audience would have gotten an even better understanding of Marley with more Bunny and more Tosh."
BOB MARLEY @ HIS BEST

"THIS IS BY FAR THE BEST BOB DVD,VIDEO I HAVE SEEN,AND IF YOU ARE A FAN OR JUST WANT TO KNOW MORE ABOUT THE GREAT REGGAE KING THIS IS THE PURCHASE TO MAKE. NOT A LOT OF MUSIC VIDEO CLIPS,BUT YOU GET TO HEAR BOB TALK ABOUT LIFE,BUT MOST OF ALL WHAT PEOPLE MEANT TO HIM. REBEL MUSIC IS THE TRUE STORY OF THE MAN I CALL MY HERO,ROBERT NESTA MARLEY.
"ONE LOVE""
The best documentary
Third World | 01/06/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This documentary has the best information out of the three videos I own, BUT, this video has only very short clips of Bob playing live. IF YOU WANT A VIDEO OF ONLY LIVE PERFORMANCE get LEGEND (the video) to complement this dvd. This dvd is an excellent documentary, perhaps the best, although I have not seen them all."
Good but not the best
Matt Potter | Spring, Texas United States | 01/17/2003
(3 out of 5 stars)

"This is a good bio of Bob Marley but it still lacks real insight into his life and career...it doesn't break any new ground and the story is told better by Bob himself on the video "Time Will Tell" and by people who knew him on "Caribbean Nights: The Bob Marley Story" Hopefully, these will get re-issued on DVD as I think they are far superior. As one previous reviewer noted, there is virtually no Bunny and no Tosh. I did find the interviews with the former CIA Agent interesting. All in all, not bad but not the best."
