Editorial Reviews

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'.

4.0 out of 5 stars ROCKing Sort of... July 1, 2009
Format:Blu-ray
First of all I have to say I love this movie for many reasons. One of which is for the fact that Horsemouth is an awesome drummer and he had an aspiration to make a movie in his lifetime and made it happen. AWESOME! A low budget film, but it makes it so perfect! The music selections make this flick totally worth buying!

So my discrepancy, unlike the DVD version of "Rockers," the blu-ray version only has the film, chapter selections, and audio selections. The DVD has a menu on terms used by Rastafarians and a menu where you can listen to most of the tracks on the movie. Granted the menu on Rastafarian terms is kind of lame, it at least has more on it than the blu-ray version. Why did Blu-ray come out if they aren't going to use everything it is capable of? It can hold more information and at higher resolution. So why aren't these menus and MORE on this DVD? Well, I have no clue. But I would suggest you buy the DVD version cause you'll get more out of your dollar. This blu-ray version really disappointed me! Not worth the price!

5.0 out of 5 stars One of our favorites. September 10, 2012
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Reggae Classic. April 20, 2010
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Rockers, the movie that starred great artists in the soundtrack and a few known reggae artists in the Movie. About a young man who gets pay back. Even though the transfer of the film was not all that. You should own this piece of Reggae Jamaican Film History.

4.0 out of 5 stars classic December 19, 2009
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
The dreadlocks, the 'erb, the reggae greats and the music made this out to be a most enjoyable movie. The plot is simple yet effective and the characters believable and real but the music just tops it all off. Good clean transfer onto blu-ray format with nice audio. I buy disks purely for the movie so i have no comments on the extras but you will not be disappointed with the quality of this movie finally on blu-ray. Good value and a must for collectors and reggae music lovers.
