Goofs

In the scene with Mad Max, Wayne, and Errol in the kitchen, Mad Max is seen opening the refrigerator door with blood on the side of his face. There wasn't a recent gun fight or injury that would warrant this blood. This can also be seen in the opening credits. See more »

Top Shottas are Back
12 January 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

this by far is One of the realest movies from Jamaica to hit the streets internationally since Rockers and Harder they Come...Cess Silvera Has by far Made one of the Greatest Jamaican Movies of Modern time...The Official New Release is So Crisp and Clear.Beats the Bootleg that I've had since 04...Lookin forward to Shottas 2...The Revised Soundtrack that Stephen Marley did Far surpasses the Wack Wyclef Soundtrack from the bootleg. Ky-Mani and Spragga Benz are Perfect for the roles they portray, Along with the rest of the carefully hand picked cast of the film. It's real and raw and shows the corruption of the Jamaican Government and Police that continues today.
