Brilliant, finally a musical worth watching (by springstone)
I feel compelled to submit a review for this movie, purely because some of the atrocious reviews I've seen contributed by others.To give context, I grew up in the 80s and 90s, and pretty much know all the songs backwards - surprisingly... decades later. I did not grow up in LA, or the States for that matter, but I most certainly grew up with just about every song played in this movie.I absolutely hate musicals. With a passion. So, even though my friends encouraged me to watch this movie, I resisted. Eventually I caved, and all I can say is that I absolutely loved the movie! My wife loved <more>
the movie, but in all honesty, our 10 year old thought it was OK - purely because she didn't know any of the songs.If you love rock, and grew up with 80s rock, this movie is for you. This movie isn't called Rap of Ages or Pop of Ages or R&B of Ages or Classical Music for the Ages... it's called Rock of Ages. Reviewers posting they walked out after 15 minutes, really shouldn't contribute here. And quite frankly, you need to have a serious problem if you are analyzing the actors voices with respect to the original artists. This movie is good fun, and true to the times... This movie is THE musical for all rockers out there! Absolutely wonderful fun for the family, with a stellar performance from the entire cast. A good couple of chuckles in there, and if you're over 35 years old... I dare you to not sing along with some of those classics. With so much rubbish coming out of Hollywood to keep the nay-sayers busy with their critical reviews, this is a refreshing change.If rock is not your choice of music, skip this movie... but if you grew up in the 80s, you should appreciate the music, fun and experience portrayed in this movie.This movie rocked!
Great thrill ride from start to finish (by ahmerb)
I wasn't quite sure what to expect from a Mission Impossible actor in a movie about rock and roll and it was only because I saw the rest of the cast list that I decided to watch it, however, this movie is definitely a must see! Everyone was awesome! The script and performance were nicely paced and excellently delivered. It was exhilarating from start to finish. Loved the characters, loved the songs, loved the humour. The familiar soundtracks had subtle purpose to character dimensions. Those from the Eighties might be scared of revisiting the past and popular tracks that matured to cheese, <more>
but this film has reclaimed them. I know this movie will earn its own loyal following, like Mama Mia and School of Rock. Awesome!
I totally fell in love whit this movie! It's like "Mamma Mia!" meets rock. Whit a touch of comedy. Lots off the songs is the classic rock songs all rock-fans know and love. And if you look close you can see the real deal! the real rock musician The whole ensemble did an amazing job! Its clearly visible that Tom Cruise have made a big research for this movie. BUT the monkey! That monkey must be smarter then several humans! OMG!This is a movie for all rock-fans! SPOILER Upcoming Its specially one picture stuck in my head! Malin Åkerman sticking her tongue in Tom Cruises ear! <more>
I saw the Broadway play with the original cast and had a great time. The movie didn't disappoint me either. A cheesy love story tied together with great music from the hair band 80's was on purpose. Re-living that era, priceless. Go. Enjoy. This will definitely become a cult favorite in future years, bless 'em for preserving some amazing rock history. Ignore the professional critics, go have fun!This is my first review attempt on IMDb, with hopes this helps those who are turned off by People, EW, local and national news professional aka, paid reviewers. I'm a pop culture <more>
junkie and a grandma, I don't always agree with the pros. I'm sorry Rock of Ages had a poor box office start out of the gate, but hopefully my little review piece will bring some fun to those clinging to their entertainment dollars. Great party experience!
If you like the 80's big-hair era, ignore the negative reviews! (by rgweaverman)
My wife and I were both in high school during the 1980's and we loved this movie. So the story isn't Academy Award material, but it was the most fun we have had at the movies in a while. The 80's music is not the original work, but still performed well and placed great in the movie. Tom Cruise is a hoot in his role think Axl Rose and the others weren't bad either. Small cameos by some 80's rock stars. I have seem some references to its similarity to Grease and its portrayal of the 1950's. I think that is a pretty good comparison. Again, if you are not a fan of the <more>
80's, you probably won't like this too much. But, if you like the 80's and its music, you will probably enjoy this movie and leave with a smile.
I'm an old goat who was, in the 80s, called the rock 'n roll Captain where I worked. My son, who just turned 34, heard this music night and day when he grew up. Last night, we saw the movie together and we both enjoyed the hell out of it, even mocking the idea of hip-hop entering a rock venue. Those looking for realism should recognize that a musical is never an actual representation of the day and most often is a parody, exaggerating and mocking its point. Rock Of Ages was just that, but in a very fun way with good music and musical centered acting.I recommend this movie because of <more>
all its elements: acting, setting, music and and plot line.
I'm 60, I want to have some fun, and this movie was fun (by joycebaker-401-57878)
I'm 60, I want to have some fun, and this movie was fun. It put me right in the Bourbon Room audience, blithely wearing the tasteless and bizarre outfits that I couldn't wear because I was setting a standard of decorum for my kids in those days, and embarrassing them was anathema. It features a period of Rock 1987 when the genre was flanked by inane crap "music" aimed at the 13-16 year olds I was raising. Fortunately they didn't bite. This movie features the memorable music of the decade that my grandson is now still honoring. This music and that of the late 60's <more>
and early 70's helped me as a beleaguered working mom "Rock" through a day of commutes, housework, and culture shock. I don't "get " the focus on plot and antics that some of the more "serious" reviewers are stroking themselves with. I paid $8.00 and didn't fancy myself being at a rock concert or a stage play, but I got all of that feel and more. I would have paid $30 just to see Baldwin grunged, and desperate but hopeful. Cruise's character looked shaky at first. But as usual, in trademark style, he starts off blasé and then explodes into passion and surprise. Paul Giamatti and Zeta-Jones were fun to despise in their hypocrisy. Hough and Boneta were fresh, talented and beautiful. Mary J. Blige Justice Charlier was superb, and although I never "got" Russell Brand before, he was the most fun of all. Leave your pretense at home. PLOT!? Yada Yada. If you are pushin' or draggin' 60, go pig out on some Italian and party with "Rock of Ages".
What is there to say? This is a musical comedy about love, rock, music industry absurdities, complete with aging god-of-rock-at-the-very-lonely-top, with the cast actually singing quite well... I enjoyed every minute of it.Ignore the bashers. Ignore the thin plot. Ignore the complaints about the movie not being what a musical should be - when compared to such and such another movie. Just sit back, take it with a grain of salt, and enjoy, the very nicely mixed-into-medley 80's Rock 'n Roll hits; all extravagantly presented for your entertainment.The movie is worth your time; if only <more>
for the breath of fresh air that it provides, and of course, that priceless Ga-Ga-puppy-eyed-look of Julianne Hough when up close and personal with Tom Cruise's Stacee Jaxx. That was money all by itself.Tom Cruise was excellent as rock-god; Julianne Hough did a believable sweet & innocent-small-town-girl-in-love. Alec Baldwin's character did slightly weird me out, in a funny way. The movie rocks.
What a fun film. Aside from a thin plot line..but then, don't most musicals have that?.. the film was really cool. Every example of the singing covering the hits from the '80s was credible. Okay, Steve Perry nobody was, but then .nobody is. I am totally blown away by the singing of Tom Cruise. Who knew? The older this guy gets, the more fascinating he becomes. And Diego Bonita has not only good lucks, but in addition, a really good voice. All in all, for anyone who loved no loves the music of that decade, this is a grand reason to go to the movies. Some truly funny stuff in there, <more>
too. The scene Oh, you'll know the one between Alec Baldwin and Russell Brand was especially amusing. There really should be more musicals made. It's so refreshing not to have a choice between one horrific, realistic chop 'em, shoot 'em, or scare 'em silly movie after another, that this is exactly what we're looking for.
