It can be nearly impossible to watch at times.

Really, it's like a longer, louder version of Glee or American Idol, but with actors who can't sing rather than singers who can't act. Plus, it rocks you like a hurricane.

"Rock Of Ages" is a soundtrack in search of a story, but it turns its utter disregard for narrative into its strongest ally.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5

...the two hours watching such a tepid and lip-synched effort is not a pleasant experience.

I know that in the history of cinema there have probably been worse movies. I'm just having a hard time thinking of one right now.

Oscar-worthy costume design by Rita Ryack ... enliven the proceedings that are constantly mired by Tom Cruise's unattractive vanity mugging, off-putting gay jokes and questionable taste in choreography.

Rock of Ages will make you want to raise your arms...and then immediately plunge your fingers into your eyeballs for salvation (you can go back for seconds to rescue your ears).

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.

Neither Tom Cruise nor a solid 80s playlist can keep the Rock alive.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5

Tom, we're really not worthy.

If you grew up with the music of the 1980's and want to relive it, you may enjoy the film. For me, I could easily have skipped both the music and the movie.

Rock of Ages panders to its base without putting in the extra effort to standout as not just a competent musical but a must-see film experience for all audiences.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5

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

Far from being a true "Juke Box Hero," Rock of ages still manages to delight with its own giddy brand of utter stupidity.
Full Review | Original Score: 7.5/10

"Rock of Ages" just never comes together, resulting in a mishmash of mostly-bland music and undeveloped stories.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4

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.

There are two reasons to see "Rock of Ages." One: If you live and breathe for 80s rock music. Two: A drugged up Tom Cruise belting out Bon Jovi. Unfortunately, that's about it.

If this isn't one of the worst movies of the year, we're all in a whole lot of trouble.

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.

Would have been more honestly titled Rock for Ages -- because that's how long this headbangers ball seems to go on.
