Rock of Ages
Tom Cruise and Russell Brand




Overview -
A small-town girl and a big-city boy find their fates intersecting on the Sunset Strip, riding a wave of romance through the height of the "hair metal" scene as the off-Broadway musical rocks its way to the big screen courtesy of choreographer-turned-director Adam Shankman (A WALK TO REMEMBER, HAIRSPRAY). Arriving in Hollywood with stars in her eyes, Sherrie (Julianne Hough) meets Drew (Diego Boneta), and together they plunge headlong into the local rock scene. Meanwhile, as Sherrie struggles to stay afloat in a churning sea of rock 'n' roll excess, she gets swept off her feet by audacious rock star Stacee Jaxx (Tom Cruise). Russell Brand, Paul Giamatti, and Bryan Cranston co-star in a movie featuring music by Journey, Def Leppard, Poison, Whitesnake, Bon Jovi, Foreigner, Joan Jett, and REO Speedwagon.

Reviews:
3 stars out of 4 -- "A lot of it is zesty entertainment, with some energetic musical numbers....[The cast] play their roles with great intensity and earnestness..." - 06/13/2012 Chicago Sun-Times


"Blessed with unstoppable energy, an undeniably bawdy sense of fun and Tom Cruise...it takes songs you may never have loved and turns them into a musical that's easy to enjoy." - 06/14/2012 Los Angeles Times


3.5 stars out of 5 -- "[A] perfect brew of classic '80s songs, big laughs and rockin' performances....With a terrific cast and a standout turn from Tom Cruise as a zoned-out rocker..." - 06/13/2012 USA Today


"[Cruise] does strut quite ably through a version of 'Pour Some Sugar on Me' -- it’s his best moment, and one of the liveliest bits in the movie." - 06/14/2012 Movieline


3 stars out of 4 -- "[T]he hugely enjoyable ROCK OF AGES is saved by its music, a tasty brew drawn from Def Leppard, Journey, Foreigner, Bon Jovi, REO Speedwagon, Pat Benatar, Twisted Sister, Poison and Whitesnake. It's near impossible not to rock along." - 06/21/2012 Rolling Stone


3.5 stars out of 5 -- "With a terrific cast and a standout turn from Tom Cruise as a zoned-out rocker....ROCK OF AGES shouldn't disappoint fans of the show or the era's music." - 06/13/2012 Box Office


3 stars out of 5 -- "Adam Shankman certainly knows how to amp up gleeful cheese after directing HAIRSPRAY, and ROA belts along at a pace, switching karaoke classics at whiplash speed..." - 08/01/2012 Total Film


"This is truly a jukebox musical, celebrating a genre rather than an oeuvre, cramming well-known rock anthems and ballads into a stylised LA-set love story....What this metal mash-up has going for it is a thick seam of affectionate, exuberant 1980s parody..." - 08/01/2012 Sight and Sound
