Its sense of fun is infectious enough that it doesn't make a huge difference that it's light on the story side. Coupled with the visual style and the top-notch choice of music, it makes for a fun, if lightweight, experience.

While the plot line may not be overly complicated and Lynchian, it is in no way formulaic or simple either. Proyas leaves you wanting you to see his characters thrive, not necessarily as a band, but as friends.

Its tricksy stylishness... is more of a distraction than a tonic for the feeling that we've seen all this before.
July 21, 2003
Proyas strays from the formula just often enough to keep us on our toes. The remainder is too slight and harmless to really condemn... even when it slips into cliché.

...[Alex Proyas'] over-the-top sensibility keeps this admittedly routine storyline from becoming an all-out bore.

Proyas, an assured stylist, manages to elevate the film with a bright palette and an abundance of special effects.
July 18, 2003
Though the storytelling is a bit lopsided, the slapdash quality is charming overall, and the movie benefits from colorful characters and a couple of hilarious scenes.

Fast, funny and extremely light.

While Garage Days tries a bit too hard to be cool and slips into a darker place than you might expect, you can tell that everyone here is having a good time.

The movie has a lot of affection for these scruffy wannabes, and I liked the fact that they were not arrogant, aggressive types, but sort of average, with reasonable values and ambitions.

Alex Proyas directs with high energy and brash innocence and has a grand time putting his technology and technique to work in such a lark.

July 17, 2003
For all its libidinous, chemically suggestive bombast, it's essentially a sweet-natured, modestly likable little film.

joyous, diverting, and often childish

July 16, 2003
It is one of the most sheerly entertaining films of the season and has all the ingredients to become a major hit with audiences.

The visual trickery can be cool, and in fact the second major hallucination sequence features more imagination than the entirety of The Hulk
