A pretty straight forward movie that's about a monster made I was hoping it would be about Alice Cooper or Rob Zombie, so I was disappointed. Forlorn.

do you wonder what this movie is about? if yes, you're dumb. it's another in a long list of made-for-sci-fi movies that has a title that says it all. what you can learn from this movie: romanian rock monsters can only be killed with a specific sword wielded by a specific person. if you're the american guy in the village, it's probably you, why not.

Cheese is very much on the menu in this Sci-Fi Channel original about a Rock Monster causing havoc in some un-named Eastern European country. Anybody who has had the bad luck to have actually seen a Sci-Fi original before will know how painfully awful most of them are, the thing that elevates Rock Monster above the usual fare is that it never takes itself seriously, it knows it is an awful film and just goes with it. The plot is stupid, the CGI beyond terrible, the acing atrocious but for some strange reason this is what makes the film work. It is chock full of cliches and it's pretty obvious what is going to happen but there are some good action scenes and plenty of laughs (mostly unintentional) in there to make this an entertaining B-Movie.

Worth a watch on a boring day.

Why do I always fall for Sci-Fi Channel original movies? They always look so amazing!

This film, while absolutely terrible, did sort of lay on the cheese: witty and nerdy lead actor, hot European village girl, greasy villain...

I've been waiting awhile for a new sort of monster to come along, however, that will join vampires, werewolves, Big Foots, and Loch Nesses in our cultural folklore. Unfortunately, the Rock Monster isn't it.

i spotted this on sky, i love monster movies and thought what the hell?! reaaally cheesey but still very enjoyable! i loved the rock monster, it looked like a transformer that theyd cgi'd rocks over the top of. i loved it when he bowled the car out of the way with the massive rock haha. macho toni who loved the guns was great but people in this town seem very eager to marry!!! if you like the sound of a sword in the stone-esque cheesey monster movie this ones for you!!!

Another superb example of a Z-list monster movie. I'm not saying this in a derogatory way at all - I thought it was great! Full of wonderfully corny CGI, some dreadful ketchup effects, and stereotypes galore (the "British" traveller (no he wasn't - he was bloody English!) who kept moaning and wanting a beer; the Mayor's daughter with a huge push-up bra; the feisty American heroine who can load an anti-tank missile and still worry about her relationship with the local farmer; the "hero" who is the eternal student; the retired general; the leather-coated villain) - it's all here. Watch for the piss-take value; a good laugh!

All the production value of a soft-core porn, with none of the wit. (Note: by "wit," I mean "boobs")

This movie is terrible... but in a good way.

long time reader , first time writer to your column. 'Rock Monster' had it all. great rock special effects, strong/sexy main characters, while at the same time being able to teach a few lessons. don't touch things if you don't know where they came from; if you are running away from a rock monster, don't rest near a rock; and if you put your mind to it you can do anything... like ride a tank w/o knowledge of tanks.

I can honestly say that this movie made me a better person than I was before I watched it.

So much knowledge was put forth by this film and I now know what must be done whenever I encounter a giant rock monster in eastern europe.

Superb! Sci-Fi pictures originals scored another big hit! This movie picked up right where the film "Merlin" left off.

Go Sci-Fi!!

Funniest quote: "This is not my destiny! I am a college student! I go to Cal-Poly! I've been there 7 years and I've had 10 majors!"

Watch this movie if you've got nothing to do and just want to watch something pretty terrible. I actually enjoyed it, as far as bad movies go because while it employed nearly entirely stereo-types, they employed a bloody lot of them. It was enjoyable trying to keep up!

Oh, also watch if you're one of those people who can never seem to guess what's going to happen in a shouldn't have any problems with this one and it may boost your ego for a minute :)

Oh, I almost forgot to mention: The names of most of the actors are just plain "rock"sor...which makes the first few minutes of the movie worth sitting through.
