Rokkazu / Rockers Review
22 August 2009 | by See all my reviews

Rokkazu (or Rockers to give it it's English title) is a comedy drama based on real-life Japanese rock band: Rockers. The film is a fictional account with some of the details changed. Perhaps the fiction is more interesting than the reality. The film follows the band playing gigs in various venues before they make it big. The film also looks at the relationship between the band members.

Rockers was a surprise. I expected it to be a mediocre comedy at best; filled with toilet humour but what the film delivered was much better. Good acting throughout albeit over-the-top but, it works. Nicely edited and filmed especially the performance footage. The comedy in the film is also funny and I found myself laughing more than a few times (which is rare). It also references many rock idols such as Jimi Hendrix and Keith Richards which adds to the fun. Comedy aside there are also some quite touching moments which adds balance.

Overall: A fine film. The comedy is actually funny with enough drama to keep it balanced and interested. Fun and entertaining throughout. Even the music is good. Well worth seeking out a copy.
