ROCK OF AGES Movie Review





Ok, so let me get the embarrassing bits out of the way. It started with a pulsing tap of the foot, on the opening scenes. It then transitioned in to an accompanying rhythmic clap to the Rock beats and in less than no time, it all culminated in to what I’d like to coin as S.O.L. Not L.O.L. (Laughing out loud), but SOL: Singing Out Loud. Yes that’s right I, along with a very vibrant audience, found myself singing passionately to the likes of Guns and Roses, Def Leppard, Journey, Poison, Twisted Sister, Foreigner, Bon Jovi, Joan Jett, just to name a few. This foot tapping, hand clapping, head bopping; fist pumping musical was infectious from the very first scene. Now that we have those embarrassing ‘tid-bits’ out of the way, we can get to the movie. This film, based on the Broadway musical of the same name, is stellar with its line-up of stars. Director Adam Shankman has gone above and beyond the call of duty, with this one. Tom Cruise’s flawed character “Stacee Jaxx” embodies every characteristic of what we have come to know as the eighties Rock star. He is authentic with every stage move and is every bit convincing in his roll. He captivates the crowd with flawless performances throughout the movie. READ FULL REVIEW
