Critic Reviews for Rockers

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (4)

Rockers is an extraordinarily ambitious film for one that seems so casually put together.

An excellent soundtrack, and an endearingly witty script which digresses through explanations of the Rasta faith and countless idiosyncratic solidarity rituals, make for a delightful piece of whimsy.

Rockers is heavily didactic about the tenets of Rastafarianism, but it's also lighthearted, offering much the same dichotomy reggae music does.

Sounds from the golden age of reggae pulse through this breezy 1978 drama.

The sheer life in Rockers has survived well.

Rockers spins realist connections from de Sica to Shaft.

Audience Reviews for Rockers

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.
