3.0 out of 5 stars Caveat Emptor Dec 8 2002
By bluejim
This version is poor quality w/scenes chopped from the original theatre release. I read where the "official" DVD version on Island/Palm/Whatever they are this week was supposed to be out, but I can't find it. That said, this is a great movie & a real kick to revisit after all these years. I was just reminded the other day that Jacob Miller died at 25! Such a shame.

5.0 out of 5 stars My favorite reggae movie hands down Aug. 13 2002
I love this movie and have watched it over and over again. It captures the vibe of reggae in the late '70s perfectly and includes performances by some of the greatest performers of the time. Standouts include "Tenament Yard" by Jacob Miller and Inner Circle and an acapella version of "Jah No Dead" by Burning Spear. Definitely a must see, especially if you enjoyed "The Harder They Come".

5.0 out of 5 stars ROCKIN' Dec 28 2001
Yeah, Reggae holds it's own in this vintage Roots film about the "real deal" record industry in Jamaica. You'll never find a cast like this, what a community of musicians! I only wish more of the reggae musicians kept this same type of closely knit fraternity! A lot of those same musicians have been recently featured on the Black Seed (2001) album. Check both of them out!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars DVD Version Has Many Plusses and One Big Minus July 14 2001
By beelove
Okay, this is my absoulte favorite movie of all time, one that I base my own artistic philosophy on. That being said, there are things about the DVD version I love and one major thing that bugs me.
The difference in picture quality versus the VHS version is AMAZING! I've seen "Rockers" on video a hundred times but when I saw it on DVD for the first time I was shocked at the amount of detail I'd been missing. Colors, background business, scenery that I'd never noticed before jumped right out at me.
The bonus features also make this DVD worth the price. The audio-only feature is great. You get to hear all the songs in full and they're accompanied by excellent production stills from the movie itself and candid photos of the cast and crew taken on location. The cast biographies are a nice addition, too.
My big complaint about the DVD version is the inclusion of additional music that was not included in either the theatrical or VHS release. Several songs were seemingly randomly inserted and they changed the disco song playing at the Uptown club (I guess they couldn't re-secure the rights to "Turn the Beat Around"). The newly added songs haven't been properly mixed in at some points and are so loud they drown out the dialogue, which makes the subtitles feature absolutely necessary.
But this is such an incredible movie that it's still a worthwhile addition to your collection, regardless. Maybe the solution is to own both the VHS and DVD versions.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Hilarious, Classic June 13 2001
Undisputable one of the best movies to come out of Jamaica. This classic, entertaining, hilarious comedy offers non stop laughs. Aligned with an all star cast of not only good actor, but entertainers, as well, this Jamaican comedy crosses all lines of color, creed and social class. It not only offers a well writen, well directed movie, but also a strong ambience of Jamaican culture. Armed with true Jamaican patios and subtitle, for those that might have problem with the dialogue. I see no reason why this treasure should only be for Jamaicans, but should be shared with America and the rest of the free world too. I think that everyone should pick up this movie so the whole family can enjoy it. We can only hope that Jamaica has more movies like this one to offer in the future.
