Rock of Ages movie Review – 2012 Hollywood English movie Rock of Ages starring Tom Cruise stole the show.
Under the direction of Adam Shankman (“Hairspray”), New Line Cinema’s feature film adaptation of the smash hit Broadway musical “Rock of Ages” comes to the big screen.”Rock of Ages” tells the story of small town girl Sherrie and city boy Drew, who meet on the Sunset Strip while pursuing their Hollywood dreams. Their rock ‘n’ roll romance is told through the heart-pounding hits of Def Leppard, Foreigner, Journey, Poison, REO Speedwagon, Twisted Sister and more.
Tom Cruise who was last seen in the blockbuster movie Mission Impossible 4 Ghost Protocol turns out to be the show stealer. Tom Cruise plays the role of aging rocker Stacee Jaxx, has a killer voice, dome some lovely chemistry with journalist Constance Sack (Malin Akerman). On the other hand, the two lovebirds Sherrie Christian (Julianne Hough) and Drew Boley (Diego Boneta) just did awesome job in doing good chemistry. Baldwins, and the Giamattis singing was fabulous, but not enough to the standard for musicals. The musical numbers in were just unbelievable.
But, make no mistake, every single number was executed brilliantly. Even if you bored of Tom Cruise personally, he kills it in every movie he’s in. His scenes are the outstanding. You will get impressed by the performances of Alec Baldwin, Russell Brand, and Paul Giamatti. Even singer Mary J. Blige got involved. IF you liked Shankman’s Hairspray, then you’ll probably like this one as well. Accolades to Adam Shankman and Chris D’Arenzio (creater) for achieving what they wanted to get.
The story is weak, but the rest of it is awesome. It feels like Cruise got into the skin of Jim Morrison and Axl Rose to perfection. The combination of Brand/Baldwin is hilarious. This movie is meant to be the caliber for the pure fun and enjoyment have having fun at a movie. Its the kind of movie you need to watch many time multiple times to catch everything.
Mission Impossible actor in a movie about rock and roll is definitely a must see! Everyone was awesome! The script and performance were nicely picturized and brilliantly delivered. Rock of Ages was entertaining throughout. You will just love the characters, the songs, the humour.
All in all, Rock of Ages Rocks
