Not great, but moments of guilty pleasure.
| Original Score: 3/5
A watered down, lukewarm and very cliché rock fantasy...
The first half is hilarious but the second gives itself more to cautionary moralising and life lessons.
| Original Score: 4/5
Every character becomes a cipher for a strangely reactionary morality tale.
Just as it should be falling apart, its melodrama becomes more touching than ever, ultimately shaping a film about much more than any band and more poetic than any song on the radio.
| Original Score: 3.5/4
The milieu is more convincing than the story.
| Original Score: 2/4
Mark Wahlberg looks yummy in tight leather pants and that's a good thing because there's not much else to recommend . . . ROCK STAR.
| Original Score: 2/5
Okay, so the plot's as fantastical and absurd as that whole, awful era, but damned if it isn't a good time.
Forget the storyline, just laugh (and cringe) at the period.
A veteran of arena stage concerts, Wahlberg's obviously got the moves and the attitude, but in offstage moments where more complex characterization is needed, he flounders.
| Original Score: 3.5/5
Despite its flaws, screenwriters Callie Khouri and John Stockwell still manage to save Rock Star by writing a semi-entertaining script.
| Original Score: 2.5/5
It is a nonstop cliche.
| Original Score: 2/4
Very watchable, owing to a pair of strong performances from its two leads, but it isn't the great film it could have been.
It offers witty entertainment and an easy, tourist-level jaunt through the more absurd precincts of big-time rock 'n' roll.
| Original Score: 3/4
This is not Spinal Tap, but it is a fun though far from decadent or persuasive rock epic about finding your own voice in life.
Surprisingly, Wahlberg's 'Rock Star' mesmerized me right along with all those screaming fans and sexy groupies depicted in the film.
This is the first R-rated movie that feels PG-13, a heavy-metal saga you can take Mom to see.
While not in the same league as either This Is Spinal Tap or Almost Famous, this rock-band movie is at least thoroughly entertaining.
starts off as a "Spinal Tap"-style spoof, only to abruptly switch gears halfway through. By the time it wraps up, "Rock Star" is frantically trying to sell us the same bucket of cliches it was making light of in its first hour.
O filme é como um grande show de rock cujo último número é um sucesso do pagode: depois de pular durante 2 horas, você sai frustrado por não ter sentido vontade de pedir bis.
