Rock of ages review

Rock of ages the film is the review of the day. I was very happy to be given the chance to watch this film as I really think Tom Cruise is a great actor. I even got my own rock wig and blow up guitar to really get me in the mood.

If you love rock music and the 80's you will love this film.  It has all the classic rock songs from this time such as Bon Jovi, Foreigner, Def Leppard and Guns N Roses. This gives the time period that many will remember and enjoy all over again.
Good plot a little silly at times but still fun and with great performances throughout. I was totally entertained and my attention held for the whole film.
The story is about two young people Sherrie and Drew and their dreams of making big in the music business. The film really brings out their characters and if they reach their dreams or not.
Got lots of other great cast members such as Alec Bladwin, Catherine Zeta Jones, Mary Blige to name but a few.
I should say it is not a movie for the young family as there is a far amount of drugs and sex, but long as you are aware of this from the start its not going to be a problem.
I was very impressed with Tom Cruise. He performed the part of a rock star to perfection. I have to say he really sounded and looked the part.

If you love rock music and love the 80's you will love this film. Its a really musical journey which I am sure for many will be back loads of memories.
Available in most shops but also online at price £10.00

Please note I was not paid for this review , only receiving a copy of the film.


  1. I'm dying to see this film. So will look out for the DVD here.


I am always delighted when people take time to leave me a comment...thanks so much
