4.0 out of 5 stars good retrospective on the Bush Doctor December 3, 2002
Format:DVD
Stepping Razor Red X is essential viewing for any reggae fan. While it jumps around chronologically, it is a good intro to Tosh, his music, and his beliefs. My only complaint is that I found some of the re-enactments to be a little hokey. I think that it would have been more effective to show still pictures of Tosh instead of having an actor lip-sync over Tosh's tape-recordings. Overall, though, this is a great movie about a true revolutionary.

3.0 out of 5 stars Wailers fans/Peter Tosh fans should at least watch once September 4, 2002
By A Customer
Format:DVD
Greetings,
I have seen the documentary on VHS and have viewed it many times.
While the documentary could have been better directed, it's worthwhile for any Wailers fans and (sorry for the cliche) a must-have for Peter Tosh fans.
This documentary tells in clear terms that there's a great biography to be written about Tosh's life. Ultimately, the documentary is very moving and also very sad.
The strongest portions of the documentary center around the audio tapes Tosh was recording as a sort of autobiography. He even discusses his childhood, how he was singled out for his nappy hair texture and dark skin.
The documentary is also very haunting for those who know about Tosh's murder. Still, despite there being a verdict, the murder is still a large question mark.
Despite the sad, upsetting overall atmosphere, it still manages to be uplifting, hopefully motivating Tosh fans to see that they, too, can change the world, at least in part.
Tosh was abandoned as a child by his father and neglected by his mother, who didn't really raise him either.
Anyway, enough divulging of information, see this documentary if you can.

4.0 out of 5 stars good reggae movie July 5, 2006
Format:DVD
this is a well-made film about the life of peter tosh. there are some excellent live clips, although, too many come from his u.s. tour in the early 80's and so there is some synthesizer overload going on. good interviews with rasta heavyweights; the interviews with mortimer planno and bongo israel are worth the price of the dvd. good reggae movie in general and definitely a good retrospective on the life of tosh. peter was a bit crazy, but there's no doubt that he was a man of righteousness and a truly excellent songwriter, and the film brings out those elements.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tosh Fan December 23, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
If you are a Peter Tosh fan, this is a must see. If you are interested in the rise of Bob Marley and the Wailers or curious about Rastafari and the influence it's had on music and vis versa, this is a must see. Peter Tosh was a keen observer and vocal activist, this film does him justice.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stepping Razor Red X December 17, 2007
By PJ
Format:DVD
Peter Tosh, a mighty spiritual warrior of Jah.

"What as it was designed by Jah who sent me here to help to alleviate, to turn the filth and corruption that my people have been inoculated with it's only my duty to teach those who will learn."(SR)

Peter Tosh August, 1983 - "The flowers will bloom and the pollution will go away. There will be fresh air and no pestilence. Man has created these things for experimental purposes to promote death and advance technology. But soon the earth will tilt on its axis and begin to dance to the reggae beat to the accompaniment of earthquake. And who can resist the dance of the earthquake, mon?"
