Bob Marley: One Love Review | Uneven Biopic with Great Music

Bob Marley: One Love follows the luminous reggae icon during a period of violent political upheaval in Jamaica and his exile in London after a shocking assassination attempt. These seminal years before his tragic death from cancer resulted in the production of Exodus, dubbed by Time magazine as the greatest album of the 20th century. One Love's sublime lead performances, soul-stirring musical soundtrack, and depiction of Marley's Rastafarian beliefs are unfortunately told in a Wikipedia-styled narrative of biopic bullet points. The film never explores Marley in-depth and often breezes over critical events of his storied life.
