O que se diz lá fora sobre ROCK OF AGES, de Adam Shankman:
«The only problem is that the plot meanders when nobody is singing. If you're making the kind of movie where everybody in the audience knows for sure what's going to happen, it's best not to linger on the recycled bits.»
Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times.
«Absent the infectious live-audience energy of Chris D'Arienzo's legit hit, this affectionate glam-rock-a-thon reps a visually bland staging of frankly insipid material, never tapping into the raucous, go-for-broke energy that would spin the show's cliches into gold, let alone platinum.»
Justin Chang, Variety.
«It looks like Disneyland and sounds, well, like a bad Broadway musical, with all the power belting and jazz-hand choreography that implies.»
Manohla Dargis, The New York Times.
«He (Shankman) succeeds in draining most of the fun from a vehicle that was all about the winking humor of its flagrant cheesiness.»
David Rooney, The Hollywood Reporter.
«Most of the numbers in ROCK OF AGES are flatly shot and choreographed, and they look as if they'd been edited together with a meat cleaver. With rare exceptions, they don't channel the excitement of the music — they stultify it.»
Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly.
