The classic 1970's reggae film. Crammed full of Jamaican musicians, the soundtrack is great, and the story line is simple enough to follow even if you don't understand the heavy accents, tho i watched it with a cute reggae musician so I got it translated anyway.
And of course there's a very smart walking montage to practice at home afterwards.

Wow, potheads unite, this is your movie. Kidding, genius display of music through story, even though I'm not a huge fan of the musical genre.

Jacob Miller . . . Burning Spear . . . Gregory Isaacs . . . in one movie?? The soundtrack is fierce . . .it's a look into a world (even though it was a good 20+ years) that many here think they know about but don't. Anyone who loves Roots Reggae should see this movie.

Colocando de parte a brilhante banda-sonora e o valor que Rockers tem como documento do reggae em 1978, o que sobra é uma história de hustling nem por isso muito interessante, mas com grandes momentos como aquele em que Dirty Harry ocupa a cabine do DJ para improvisar um soundsystem até que a polícia chegue. Também é engraçado ver uns tantos figurões do reggae (Kiddus I, Gregory Isaacs) empenhados num filme que, no fundo, demonstra até onde pode ir o sentido de humor dos rastas. É inevitável compará-lo ao The Harder They Come e a verdade é que perde para esse por 3 a 1, vá lá.

A movie riddled with Jamaican culture, Rockers is full of good humor, authentic reggae music that will have you tapping along to the beats, and a fun plot. Though the thick accents are difficult to understand, this movie is well worth your time.

Reggae music at the pinnacle of the roots and rockers era. Classic riddims with a medium that has evolved, or rather transgressed to the commercial status that now survives. See the icons at their youthful prime. Many have passed on since Rockers was filmed. Some still tour. One of my blessings is to have witnessed an era of Reggae that shall be immortalized forever.

Amazing film, includes classic reggae tracks as well as some reggae musicians which appear as actors(Leroy Horsemouth Wallace and Gregory Isaacs). Not only is the story interesting but it also gives the viewer an insight into the rastafari culture as well as life in jamaica. There is also some conflict between Rastaman and the police, and some of the scenes are quite humorous
The only downsides are the audio quality of voices... at times the music is dominant over the dialogue..
Great film

Oh yeah the extras on the dvd are particularily good with music videos of various artists.
