ReviewSource San Francisco Chronicle
Review Reggae's second-most important figure, singer Jimmy Cliff, is the film's star. He plays the character called Ivan Martin, a country boy who becomes a pop star and a legendary outlaw. In America, "The Harder They Come'' became a cult phenomenon, running for years on the midnight-movie circuit and spawning a soundtrack album that blazed a trail toward the mainstream for reggae...A cautionary gangster flick, a crude musical and a rags-to-riches yarn rolled into one, "The Harder They Come'' is director Perry Henzell's 1972 vision of emerging Jamaican identity.

ReviewSource Movie & Video Guide
Review Country-boy Cliff comes to Kingston to make it as a singer; ironically, it isn't until he turns to a life of crime that his record starts to climb the charts. Crude but powerful film almost single-handedly launched reggae music's popularity in America; still a major cult favorite. Terrific song score includes "You Can Get It If You Really Want," "Many Rivers to Cross," title tune.
