Blu-Ray edition of the classic cult Reggae film, released to coincide with the film's 30th anniversary. A riotous burst of energy and color, almost documentary in style, Rockers is a cameo-packed gutsy thriller of the dread-locked, ganja-smoking drummer Leroy 'Horsemouth' Wallace's attempts to succeed in the cut-throat Jamaican music biz which provides much insight, amusement and education. The cast reads like the ultimate Reggae Hall Of Fame, featuring some of the leading musicians and producers of the day: Peter Tosh, Gregory Isaacs, Lee Perry, Dennis Brown, Jacob Miller and Inner Circle, Bunny Wailer, Third World, Big Youth, The Heptones, Kiddus I, Robbie Shakespeare, Leroy Smart, Dillinger and the fantastic Burning Spear. The film captures Reggae at its musical apex with a vibrant and magnificent soundtrack now digitally re-mastered from the original 35mm film made in 1979. Witty and unpretentious, this Blu-Ray version even comes with a glossary of 'Rasta Patois'.
Great storyline, loveable characters and fantastic music - but have a Jamaican patois-English dictionary handy (to help with the captions).Published 6 months ago by Lee McNulty

Even though this movie is available on Netflix, it is nice to be able to watch it whenever and wherever, even without an internet connection. The music in this movie is the best.Published on September 10, 2012 by MauraAnne
Very well crafted film with many historic bonus cameos of reggae singers & musicians, some of whom are not with us anymore. The story is finely woven and politically on target. Read morePublished on July 21, 2011 by S. L. P.
