Movie Reviews

  • this lively but decidedly overlong film directed by Adam Shankman, who previously helmed 2007's Hairspray, showers the audience with kitsch at the expense of characters
    by Tim Grierson [Screen International ]
  • this isn't a serious movie by any stretch: Its charms stem from the juicy thrill of seeing the '80s caricatured and karaoke-fied by Hollywood A-listers making delicious, willing fools of themselves
    by Amy Biancolli [San Francisco Chronicle ]
  • this affectionate glam-rock-a-thon reps a visually bland staging of frankly insipid material, never tapping into the raucous, go-for-broke energy that would spin the show's cliches into gold, let alone platinum
    by Justin Chang [Variety ]
  • Rock of Ages neither evokes an authentic feeling to celebrate the era nor spreads much joy making fun of it. Instead, it just drones on like a limp cover version
    by David Rooney [Hollywood Reporter ]
  • it's pretty funny to watch this well-preserved 50-year-old's ridiculous uber-masculine posturing
    3 of 4 by Colin Covert [Minneapolis Star Tribune ]
  • can't seem to decide on how to play its simplistic story - straight or farcically. It ends up half-mocking, half-revering the era
    1.5 of 4 by Claudia Puig [USA Today ]
  • an unsophisticated but enthusiastic love letter to classic rock
