The biopic celebrates the life and career of reggae singer songwriter Bob Marley. The story captivates of how Bob Marley born and raised in Jamaica, overcome adversity, and the journey behind his revolutionary music mainly from 1970’s

There are many reviews about the controversy over who should play Bob Marley and that it was just a rendition of his music – but there will always be critics. But after watching the film I feel that the actors Kingsley Ben-Adir and Lashana Lynch did a good job.

The cinema foyer was displayed with Bob Marley quotes, information, stage setting, newspaper clippings, album, which set us in the mood. So, we got our popcorn and drinks and watched the Biopic.

Undoubtably one of the greatest musicians of all time – in my mind a 1hr.47min biopic cannot overcome the sheer amount of talent and effect one person has had and still remains the godfather of reggae.

At the end of the film whilst the credits were rolling Bob Marley tunes were played, so we remained in our seats and jammed away singing as if we were the I-Threes – Rita Marley, Marcia Griffiths and Judy Mowatt – who were the background singers for Bob Marley and the Wailers.

I do not now about the life and times of Bob Marley. I was just a music fan, as his lyrics resonated on a conscious level with me from an early age until today.

One Love, One Heart, One Destiny.
