Rock Of Ages

"Hit me with your best shot..... fire away" are some of the lyrics compressed within this revised version of the hit stage presence musical known only as Rock Of Ages. Having seen the stage performance in infamous Hollywood, California at the Pantages Theater there was doubt running through my mind as to if this movie version would hold up to that version. Well.....

It certainly did. Using actors including Tom Cruise, Mary J. Blige, Alec Baldwin, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Russell Brand, Julianne Hough, Diego Boneta, Paul Giamatti, and Malin Akerman. All of which were put up against the musical aspect that is rock n' roll. Hence the era of the 80s was sung using various hits of such acts as Def Leppard, Journey, Poison, Twisted Sister, Foreigner, Bon Jovi, Joan Jett, and more.

So the movie and stage persona are indeed slightly different having each set of characters doing a more superb job in the movie making the music more vivid and alive having the actors portraying the musical performances in a more in-depth variety not sounding cheesy or overrated but loud and proud!

Tom Cruise caries the musical making it so much better after making his appearance as the main rock god of the film Stacee Jaxx. Doing himself quite the job in a phenomenal way there was no telling how well he could sing along with the rest of cast including Alec Baldwin doing a good job as well.

Overall the Rock Of Ages movie does the job well bringing back the love and vibrations that is and forever will be rock n' roll music.
