«Rockers is a film that will please even the most uninitiated of viewers, its excellent expressive and energetic performances making it a rewarding experience even for unsubtitled gaijin viewing (you won't be alone in this either, since most Japanese probably won't catch a good part of the dialogue due to the thick Hakata accents employed throughout).»
