Music really saves it
As a huge fan of 80s Hard Rock, I was really looking forward to seeing Rock Star. As the movie started I was more than satisfied. A lot of the early scenes were funny and entertaining. The concert scenes made me feel like I was actually there. One major compliment I give this movie is that they made the songs from the fictional band STEEL DRAGON sound realistic for the time period the movie is in. If I didn’t know better, I could’ve been fooled into thinking Steel Dragon was a real band, and all their songs actually were made in the mid 80s. The underdog portion of the story may not be original, but it still works none the less. And by the time Wahlberg’s character was in his first concert with the band, I really thought Rock Star could be one of the coolest movies of the year.
But at about the halfway point, I was lost. The second half of this movie could’ve really used a lot of work on the script. I say that the second half of the script needed work, but what I should say is the second half of the movie actually could’ve used a script, period. The second half is held together by some predictable sequences, all telling the story of a guy indulging in the rock star life, which we’ve all heard and seen a thousand times. There were very few moments that actually were used to progress the story.
But I don’t want to give the impression that Rock Star was no good. Although some of the movie didn’t work, I still had a blast watching it. The music is what really holds it together. Both the original songs written for the film (Steel Dragon), and the background songs used. It’s not often that you can hear bands like Bon Jovi, Def Leppard, Kiss, and Motley Crue used in a movie. And like I said before, the concert scenes are awesome.So for people who love great 80s Rock, this movie will be a lot of fun.
Rock Star is an average movie, with an above average soundtrack. Not a perfect film, but it provides enough entertainment for your money.
Judas Priest story line with Bon Jovi soundtrack
This is the movie that is somewhat based on the exit of Rob Halford from British Metal Gods ‘Judas Priest’ and how the band replaced him with Ripper Owens, who used to front a Priest tribute band. Originally titled Metal God this movie could have been something great. Instead, someone in an office somewhere who knows little to nothing about metal music decided to water it down. From the title change of Metal God to the ‘safe’ middle of the road ‘Rock Star’ to the lame soundtrack this movie plays out badly. Having spent most of my life in a professional metal band I was really looking forward to seeing this, I was very let down by several points of the film. The soundtrack is very NOT metal for one, and the ending of the movie is lame as well. The movie does have a few bright spots in the writing and acting but as a whole, it fails in the end because…1)A movie based on a metal band should have a metal soundtrack. 2)There is NOTHING metal about Marky Mark or Jennifer Aniston. If Bon Jovi, Warrant, Def Leppard and Poison are your idea of ‘heavy metal’ go see this movie. If Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, Dio & Black Sabbath are your idea of metal see this movie for a good laugh.
