A plane crashes in the wilds of Jamaica and the crew of two are rescued by 'Countryman'. If we all had this guys attitude to life, the world would be a much nicer place. The bad guys are bad, and the good guys are good. Great reggae music and some wonderful views of the island. Lots of locals involved in the film, and I can see why subtitles were added to the DVD version. The local patois can be difficult to understand. If you like reggae music please try to see this movie. Low budget, average plot but if you're in the right mood, it rides like a Harley on an empty road at midnight. My thanks to all involved, it's one of the few films that I can watch over and over again.
