Review

Rock Jocks has a solid story and great script that felt like what you would get if Clerks (1994) and Repo Man (1984) had a love child who became an astronaut. --The Reel Li

Product Description

Housed in a top secret location, the Asteroid Management Initiative (AMI) is a critical element in the Defense Department s struggle to keep the Earth safe from the constant onslaught of oncoming asteroids. Its heroes are the ROCK JOCKS, a group of overworked and underpaid misfits with exceptional satellite piloting skills. Our story begins during a night shift, where the Rock Jocks have arrived to fend off the asteroids, yet spend most of the evening fighting off boredom, themselves, and a meddling government bureaucrat hell-bent on shutting them down.

It's not surprising that the new indie "Rock Jocks" employs a cast that has a familiar and extensive online presence. In many ways, it feels like an extended web series as opposed to a full fledged feature film. I don't mean this as a huge criticism, it's just that this movie obviously has a tiny budget and seems to have been made on the fly. The entire scenario takes place over the course of about twelve hours and is largely confined to one set. The smartest thing that the movie does is to acknowledge its own inexpensiveness. In a funny bit of introduction to the facility, an antiquated instructional video tells the viewer that the station is populated with state of the art equipment from the 1960s. And it looks every bit that advanced! The facility in question is a top secret Department of Defense project called AMI or the Asteroid Management Initiative. On one overnight shift, the misfits that man the AMI face all the usual workplace issues: boredom, staff conflict, practical jokes, and peer assessments. But tonight, they also face a DOD bureaucrat that threatens to eliminate their jobs as well as the potential end of the world!

The movie begins as the overnight shift approaches. We meet an eclectic crew that includes Andrew Bowen (the burn-out), Felicia Day (the over-achiever), Gerry Bednob (the drunken veteran), Justin Chon (the annoying prankster), and Kevin Wu (the newbie plagued by insecurities). Can the fate of the world really be in their hands? The movie does not have much in the way of plotting, this really just explores the uncomfortable tedium prevalent in many an office job. Instead of sitting in cubicles, however, this team man lasers pointed toward space.

5.0 out of 5 stars Yes, Lasers go *pew* *pew* in space. July 16, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
Take a small group of people, that don't like each other or their job, stick them in a small top secret bunker, make them sleep deprived, and expect them to save the world...all day and everyday. Laughed out loud too many times to count. A great situational character driven comedy with excellent performances by the cast. Had me drawing parallels between the characters in the movie and the people I have/do work with.

4.0 out of 5 stars A well done little film December 31, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
OK the special effects aren't anything to write home about but the story is good and the acting is better than average. It does the "hours of boredom sandwiched between seconds of stark raving terror" vibe very well. Having spent countless hours in command posts both hoping and fearing that something would happen I could see the dynamic very well. Its a fun flick and well work watching.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good flick to watch at the start of a Sci-Fi party! October 2, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I love just about everything Felicia Day does, and I can tell her humor spilled over into "Rock Jocks" too. I tried to get a local viewing of the movie via a "Tuggs" promotion, but when I could not generate enough ticket sales to make that happen, I bought a copy myself. This one might have too much profanity if you're going to have small children watching it with you, but it's perfect for a quick fix of Science Fiction viewing. Might work even better as something to have on during an Evening Convention Room Party to get several conversations started regarding the film - there's lots of genre-references and tech-talk to keep group of science-savvy watchers interested for its hour-and-half run time :)

"Rock Jocks" is a hilarious and knowing send up of a work environment where the conflicts and duties of a strange high tech project that combines a corporate, government/regulated milieu with area 51 myth inspired, whacked out, 21st century, diverse, recovering, stressed out work force. Think of "Office Space", "Buckaroo Bonzai", and even Monty Python rolled together. Very imaginative and a lot of fun!

5.0 out of 5 stars So much fun! June 1, 2013
By megan M
Format:DVD
This movie was so funny! I don't know why more people haven't heard of it! Felicia Day, Jason Mews and the whole cast are awesome in it and I laughed the entire time. If you are a nerd who loves spaceships and needs a good funny film to watch - this is the droid (movie) you are looking for!

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty good Indy film July 16, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is a pretty good film, well worth the price. Clever premise and story with much better acting then you'd expect for it's production budget. Most of the colorful language fit the situations, but there were some times that it was a bit overused and detracted from the story. It has a good beginning, middle, and end, and is peppered with small humorous situations that will make you laugh, or at least chuckle. All in all it was quite entertaining.
