25th ANNIVERSARY EDITION
Rockers, was originally released in the late 70’s and on its 30th anniversary it has been re-released on Blu Ray/DVD. Rockers is the story of session drummer “Horsemouth” who decides to start his own record distribution company in downtown Kingston Jamaica and all goes well until the local mafia steal his motorbike. This movie was absolutely massive when it was first released as it featured nearly ever big Reggae artist on the island, stars like Gregory Isaacs, Big Youth, Jack Ruby, Burning Spear, Dirty Harry, Jah Wise and Jacob Miller to name a few all have parts in the movie. You really get a feel what it was like in
The re-release has been digital remastered and looks crystal clear compared to the
70-‘s version. The Blu Ray/DVD comes with lots of extra features like directors commentary, interviews with the director and producer, trailers, music videos a biography on all the actors and artists that featured in the movie which I found a good touch. It also comes with a 16 page booklet which includes a Jamaican patois dictionary for those that are not up to date with the Jamaican slang. This is a classic piece of reggae history all on one DVD you definitely need this in your collection. This is a must buy.
