Feelin' the noise ain't the same as feeling something for the characters, most of whom fail to amp it up in the soul department.

Tom, we're really not worthy.

Tom Cruise is monumentally good in this film. If this film was called Stacee Jaxx it might have been my film of the year.

We Got This Covered

Far from being a true "Juke Box Hero," Rock of ages still manages to delight with its own giddy brand of utter stupidity.

Rock Of Ages is a stone-cold medley of cheese and cliché. It riffs on dated guitar bands and power-anthems and it builds its city on dry ice and key changes. And yet... it still kinda rocks.

Fan The Fire

It's overlong, overblown and couldn't establish a convincing plot if its life depended on it, but it sings at the top of its lungs, and if you haven't gone deaf by the mid-point, you might just find yourself humming along.

Shankman makes a lively, consistently entertaining film that blends two seemingly incompatible art forms: a Broadway musical and '80s rock 'n' roll.

There's little doubt that Rock of Ages benefits substantially from its fast-paced and thoroughly energetic opening few minutes...

June 30, 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.

Tony Macklin

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.

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.

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.

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.

ABC Radio (Australia)

Two films in one: the good film, which is composed of extremely proficient, highly energetic production numbers (of which there are many), and the clichéd, surprisingly non-energetic other film, which is composed of all the talky bits.

The core issue in Rock of Ages is a blaring disconnect between the story it tells and the movement it aspires to capture.

Undeniably outrageous good fun with another standout comedic act from Cruise ... those who remember the 80s ... will be head banging and toe tapping.

[VIDEO ESSAY] Based on Chris D'Arienzo's campy Broadway musical, "Rock of Ages" is a gaudy, spirited exhumation of music that many would prefer to forget ever existed.
