Quotes

Horsemouth: I-man serve Selassie I continually. No matter what the weak heart say. And I know that I & I is like a tree, plant by the river of water, and not even the dog that piss against the wall of Babylon shall escape this judgment. For I & I know that all of the youth shall witness the day that Babylon shall fall!

Love It!
18 June 2002 | by GregC67See all my reviews

Incredible film! I watch this movie everyday after work. My favorite part is when Dirty Harry took over the DJ Booth with "Queen Majesty". "Money Worries" by The Maytones and "Natty Take Over" by Justin Hinds are my favorites for the underscore. The DVD is best for its quality on the soundtrack.
