Bang your head one minute, and shake it in bewilderment the next.

June 27, 2012

This exuberant, hugely entertaining big-screen adaptation of the smash stage musical comedy doesn't put a foot wrong...[Tom] Cruise again proves he's on a mid-life career peak.

The subtitle of Rock of Ages should be, "We Built This Sinkhole on Rock and Roll." Despite the relentless vapidity of Rock of Ages, there is one reason to see this movie -- Tom Cruise. Is a single performance enough to recommend a movie? If so, go.

Laramie Movie Scope

This at least looked like a good idea for a motion picture, even if the execution of the idea left something to be desired. This is sort of a cross between 'Xanadu' and 'Footloose.'

brimming with guilty pleasures for those who are nostalgic for big hair and big power chords, but like many musicals of its ilk, the story that binds the songs together is decidedly lacking

Quad City Times (Davenport, IA)

Yeah, "Monster Ballads" is blasting out here on my iPod. And I'm not ashamed to admit it. I'll bet I'm among thousands of viewers who just saw "Rock of Ages" and simply had to listen to some more 1980s-era tunes.

American Profile

Big, showy and over the top with highs, lows, laughs and some truly fist-pumping performances from a diverse cast of familiar actors, most of them in roles requiring some serious belting and hoofing.

Matt Brunson
Creative Loafing

Not good enough to recommend or bad enough to qualify as a worthwhile guilty pleasure. Instead, it's a sanitized pop show that makes rock & roll seem about as raw, reckless and dangerous as a class of kindergartners singing "Itsy Bitsy Spider."

Rock of Ages will rock you... or at least lightly jostle you.

Rock of Ages probably doesn't deliver an experience equal to that of seeing the original on stage, but if you're looking for a movie that turns the theater into an impromptu karaoke bar, you'll find nothin' but a good time.

Leonard Maltin's Picks

It's easy to see how Rock of Ages became a crowd-pleaser on Broadway, where audiences got caught up in the energy of '80s hit songs performed live.

Eclipse Magazine

It is supposed to be a celebration of 80s hair music. Why does everyone looked pained and angry during every song? The movie is worth watching for Tom Cruise's amazing performance.

Atlantic City Weekly

Despite a mildly entertaining performance by Tom Cruise as a pampered, sexed-up and boozy rock idol in Rock of Ages, the film is a major disappointment

Tom Cruise's magnetic performance almost makes the movie worth the price of admission. Almost.

You'll sympathize with the prudes when the pro-rock forces fight back with a chorus of Starship's 'We Built This City.'

There is a lot of talent on display overall, but the central storyline of the romance between Hough and Boneta's characters is cheesy and dull.

Rock of Ages is not a spoof, but it might as well be, given how little there is to root for.

EntertainmentTell

A rock 'n' roll movie that doesn't rock, featuring performers who can't sing performing songs that don't fit, in a lackluster, cliche-filled story that's poorly paced and has no stakes.

Overflowing with poor taste, without even one likeable character, the music isn't enough to make it worthwhile.
