Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Rock of Ages is not a spoof, but it might as well be, given how little there is to root for."
‑ Anthony Lane, New Yorker
"Every time an actor belts out a hit, you're reminded that the original, however cheesy, was better."
‑ Richard Roeper, Richard
"Oscar-worthy costume design by Rita Ryack ... enliven the proceedings that are constantly mired by Tom Cruise's unattractive vanity mugging, off-putting gay jokes and questionable taste in choreography."
‑ Glenn Dunks, Trespass
"Neither Tom Cruise nor a solid 80s playlist can keep the Rock alive."
‑ Tom Glasson, Concrete Playground
"Rock of Ages panders to its base without putting in the extra effort to standout as not just a competent musical but a must-see film experience for all audiences."
‑ Ben Kendrick, ScreenRant
"...a cinematic endeavor that, for all intents and purposes, is asking the consumer to put down his or her money to watch movie stars do karaoke."
‑ Glenn Kenny, MSN Movies
"The movie's supporting stars are always, inevitably, winking at the audience, but it's unclear whether the dewy-eyed leads even know how to blink."
‑ Christopher Orr, The Atlantic
"Rock of Ages will make you want to raise your arms...and then immediately plunge your fingers into your eyeballs for salvation (you can go back for seconds to rescue your ears)."
‑ Kimber Myers, The Playlist
"Tom, we're really not worthy."
‑ Andy Lea, Daily Star
"Tom Cruise is monumentally good in this film. If this film was called Stacee Jaxx it might have been my film of the year."
‑ Adam Ross, The Aristocrat
"Cruise, as Stacee Jaxx, is the living embodiment of a rock god."
‑ Laremy Legel,
"Pour some sugar on it, indeed."
‑ Lisa Kennedy, Denver Post
"Feelin' the noise ain't the same as feeling something for the characters, most of whom fail to amp it up in the soul department."
‑ Al Alexander, The Patriot Ledger
"If you grew up with the music of the 1980's and want to relive it, you may enjoy the film. For me, I could easily have skipped both the music and the movie."
‑ John J. Puccio, Movie Metropolis
"Far from being a true "Juke Box Hero," Rock of ages still manages to delight with its own giddy brand of utter stupidity."
‑ Kristal Cooper, We Got This Covered
