I went to see "Rock Of Ages" tonight and I couldn't be more disappointed, I had been waiting for this movie for a long time and had such high hopes for it that it all just came crushing down.
I was expecting to see much more of Tom Cruise but he isn't in the movie as much as you'd think,
I was also tricked by the soundtrack songs, with the name of the movie being "Rock Of Ages" and the songs used in the soundtrack coming from bands like Guns'n'Roses, Bon Jovi, Joan Jet, Journey etc I was expecting actual ROCK music but they managed to ruin 90% of the songs in this movie. Tom Cruise did a good job in the ones he sang but that was about it.
The only two good things about this movie were Tom Cruise and Russell Brand and only them made the film bearable.
I'm not even going to go into the annoying love story which just made it seem more like a Disney movie with bad acting.
Long story short, if you're a die-hard rock'n'roll fan don't waste your money with this movie. I'd say this is more of a family movie but it it has too much mature content for kids as well so, I don't know who this would be suited for really.
"Rock Of Ages" is a cross between Disney's "Camp Rock" and a 80's rock video parody and it's awful.
