The music, characters and story of Rockers are just enthralling. It was amazing to see music artists we had only heard in song, alive and well on the screen โ€“ Jacob Miller, Gregory Isaacs, Burning Spear. And how could you not fall in love with the indomitable spirit of Leroy โ€œHorsemouthโ€ Wallace, the iconic reggae drummer who plays a version of himself in the lead role. And then thereโ€™s the music โ€“ chune after chune after chune will have you skanking for days, after. This hilarious, Robin Hood like tale, pitching the poor rastaman against the wealthy business man, has been a must-see for reggae fans for generations.
