Okay, so the plots as fantastical and absurd as that whole, awful era, but damned if it isnt a good time.
By the end of the film I conceded, yes, there are good performances and the period is well captured, but the movie didnt convince me of the feel and t ..
(Rent the 1996 thriller Fear for a jolt of rough Wahlberg and Reese Witherspoon.)
The movies biggest problem is that it cannot make up its mind whether it wants to be a satire or play it straight.

Rock Star is infectious, but its hard rock with a soft heart blueprint is way too generic to lift the film into the pantheon of golden oldies. Doris T ..
His entry and adaptation to the whole rock n roll lifestyle fills the rest of the film and is really fun to watch.
The message is clear: its not about the music anymore.Rock Star offers fortune cookie life lessons.
ROCK N ROLL THRILLS That mixture of excitement and danger carries Rock Star a long way.
The first half is hilarious but the second gives itself more to cautionary moralising and life lessons.
Overall, Rock Star is nothing more than an accomplished retread of an old time story.

Unsentimental, non glamorized, and unclouded by the usual overlay of rose colored nostalgia, this is a raw but rewarding motion picture.
The plot of this heavy metal Cinderella story may sound like a fairy tale, but its based on the true story of Tim Ripper Owens, the lead singer of a J ..
Too much of a good thing turns into way too much of a good thing.
The life of a rock star is fun, and this movie is fun, too ... up to a point.

While the basic concept is well executed, it is not all that emotionally compelling.
Too bad the leaden writing and predictable story werent more worthy of their talents.And the music is equally derivative.
Overall, the film is funny and promising in its first act, and then everything sinks like the last Van Halen record.
To sum up then, this is very watchable stuff, with strong performances all round.Worth watching.
Unfortunately, and despite engaging performances from lead Mark Wahlberg and costar Timothy Spall, the film doesnt have a particularly novel one to re ..
The problem with this film is its complete and utter lack of ambition it never even tries to examine any of the themes involved, the rock star excess ..

I was too.Its hard for me to believe Wahlberg performed his musical numbers so well here.

A lot of the beats are a bit too familiar from previous entries in the series, which isnt surprising given that this is the fifth film to play off the ..
Rock n roll aint rebellion here one of the hoary conventions Rock Star avoids.
On the other hand, solid production design, musical power and sheer energy in performances largely overcomes this weakness.
Urban Cine File
This is a watered down, lukewarm and very cliche rock fantasy with the usual plot devices, a sappy ending and one dimensional supporting characters.
An affectionate romantic drama made by and for people in love with music, Stephen Hereks Rock Star is a swiftly written, nicely acted tribute to 80s h ..

Rock Star roars to life with a promise of something inspired and inventive whenever Wahlberg leaps onstage.

Wont lose much to the small screen, and you wont feel like youve over paid for fun but forgettable entertainment.
The first hour plays beautifully.Funny lines, a clever story, and a nice quick pace show exactly what good mainstream moviemaking can be.
Too bad you cant ignore that hes also void of honest emotion and good taste.
NOT loud.Aside from the sound, the script itself feels heavily trimmed.
In truth, its all pretty tame stuff, and while we dont expect a Requiem For A Dream type scenario, it all seems a little too sickly sweet to bear any ..
