Movie Review: Rock Of Ages

Based on the hit Broadway musical of the same name, Rock of Ages brings a glam-rock vibe from the 1980s to the here-and now.

The movie is directed by Adam Shankman (Hairspray) and features an all-star cast that includes Tom Cruise, who plays the aging rock legend Stacee Jaxx, Alec Baldwin, Russell Brand (Get Him to the Greek), Paul Giamatti (Sideways), Catherine Zeta-Jones (Chicago), Malin Akerman (Watchmen), as well as singer Mary J. Blige. The story revolves around the life of two lovebirds as they chase their Hollywood dreams in the unforgiving metropolis.

Their rock ’n’ roll romance journey is accompanied by the heartpounding hits from Bon Jovi, Guns N’ Roses, Def Leppard, Foreigner, Journey, Poison, Europe and Twisted Sister.
