    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.

    Okay I watched it. They should of put the subtitles in English, instead of trying to just put down exactly what they were saying, but I could get more then enough to get what was going on. I was actually surprised at the filming quality. Since the film started I couldn't figure out what I was watching or what was going to happen, I had to keep reminding myself it was movie. For some reason my brain kept telling me it was going to be a documentary. I enjoyed it but it felt like it just kind of ended. Left me sitting there like, "That's it? I mean that was neat, but that's how it's going to end? Oh well, time to jam man." At which point I got off the bean bag chair and started jamming to the credits.

    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.

    One of my favorite. It's a very fun and easy film to watch, the music the story, the locations and who can beat the wardrobe? 'Rockstar' has a nice essay on Rastafarian culture, as well as a glossary of the rasta patois. Although, it is technically poor (very dark) , to all the cast and crew I fully salute and thank you for making a truly classic picture!! :D

    Reggae drama might be my new favourite genre and this might be in the top-2 of all reggae dramas ever made. Jamaica in the 70's is truly a fairytale country. You can't really take this country and it's inhabitants for real, or you just might can. These black Yoda hippies is so much fun to watch, and to hear. The music is great. Simple movie, but so effective

    With music by Burning Spear, the late Gregory Isaacs, Peter Tosh, Third World, Bunny Wailer, etc., this is the coolest film ever! "Musical disc from the flick of my wrist to make you jump and twist"
