Movie Reviewer Andy McKinney just enjoyed the ride with Rock of Ages
Andy says, "I spent the 80’s North of the Arctic Circle so I do not have the same visceral affection for that decade’s music as some of my friends have, or indeed that I have for the music of the 60’s. In an odd way, it allowed me to enjoy this movie-made-from-a-stage-play more than they did. When the actors could not replicate the raw power of the original hair bands I was not disappointed. I just enjoyed the ride. The music evoked the atmosphere of the original hits well enough to have me humming along, happy to hear it again."
"This PG-13 film rates a strong three saw blades, more for those who actually like musicals as a genre. If you want to sing along with Night Ranger, Bon Jovi, Def Leppard, Journey, Foreigner, Europe Guns N’ Roses and REO Speedwagon, you should have a fine time."
