One does not so much watch the movie as they stare on in maddening disbelief.

Is this what Mr. Cruise's career has come to? Doesn't he, as well as us, deserve more than this?

It can be nearly impossible to watch at times.

...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).

Neither Tom Cruise nor a solid 80s playlist can keep the Rock alive.

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.

"Rock of Ages" just never comes together, resulting in a mishmash of mostly-bland music and undeveloped stories.
September 10, 2012
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.

Would have been more honestly titled Rock for Ages -- because that's how long this headbangers ball seems to go on.
July 12, 2012
The worst of Michael Schultz's Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band and Menahem Golan's The Apple with the kind of music that caused me to stop listening to radio altogether.

An illustrative dividing line: REO Speedwagon is probably thrilled to death to be on this soundtrack - meanwhile Joan Jett is likely embarrassed that she is too.

Bang your head one minute, and shake it in bewilderment the next.

This at least looked like a good idea for a motion picture, even if the execution of the idea left something to be desired. This is sort of a cross between 'Xanadu' and 'Footloose.'

brimming with guilty pleasures for those who are nostalgic for big hair and big power chords, but like many musicals of its ilk, the story that binds the songs together is decidedly lacking
June 22, 2012
Not good enough to recommend or bad enough to qualify as a worthwhile guilty pleasure. Instead, it's a sanitized pop show that makes rock & roll seem about as raw, reckless and dangerous as a class of kindergartners singing "Itsy Bitsy Spider."
