Musings of Guitargalchina
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...
[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.
Rating: 3/4 -- Rock of Ages might be lowbrow entertainment. But there's nothing to be embarrassed about in enjoying it. Full Review
Rating: 1.5/5 -- ...the two hours watching such a tepid and lip-synched effort is not a pleasant experience. Full Review
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...
Sight and Sound
Rating: B- -- Really, it's like a longer, louder version of Glee or American Idol, but with actors who can't sing rather than singers who can't act. Plus, it rocks you like a hurricane. Full Review

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.
